Question about Kenwood KDC-MP208 Car CD/ MP3 Player

1 Answer

No AM radio?


I installed the radio (KDC-MP208) per instructions with all the wiring done as instructed. Antenna is in the unit, FM stations work fine. I just don't get any AM stations. Any ideas? Can't find any support on the problem.
Thanks

Try pressing down on the directional pad located on the right side of the stereo, this should bring you to the AM setting. If that doesn't work, make sure you have the proper antenna cable installed as well as the proper wiring harness.

Just performed a new install on this. Everything powers up and works fine, including the power antenna. Followed set up instructions including selecting speaker output but no sound at all? Radio station...


It sounds like you may have the negative and positive polarity wrong usually to the speakers. I suggest to use black for negative and red for positive so that each speaker is correct. Speaker wire is good but for self installs its a common mistake.

Wiring diagram


My fault meant this as a solution post....

What do you need the diagram for? If your installing the radio, you do not need a diagram you need to go purchase the wiring harness for your make and model and year car. Match the colored wires together to the ones on the back of the head unit then connect them, then that harness plugs into your stock car harness that your stock radio unplugged from. You also probly need an antenna adapter cable that just connects to your stock antenna cable to add length and then plugs into your aftermarket radio. If you need a wiring diagram because you are trying to open you radio and fix it because it is broke or something...good luck to ya. Hope I helped... :)

Usually when you lose only AM it is an antenna issue. Check for a loose antenna plug on the back of the radio or connection to the antenna.

You may have a bad antenna or antenna cable.
FM signals are measured in microvolts and are easily influenced by poor antennas or a mashed antenna cable.

USA - EUrope FM band stations frequency differences


I have a car stereo purchased from the US and I can’t pick up all radio stations in Europe/UK, what can I do?
If you have purchased a car stereo from the US you will find that it will not pick up many European radio stations. This is due to the fact that US radio frequency steps are different to here in Europe.
You may be able to set the tuner to European stations by following this procedure.
Press and hold down the SRC button to power down the unit completely.
While the unit is off press button 1 & 5 together, while momentarily pressing the SRC button.
If this does not work try the following proceedure;
Press and hold buttons 1 and 5 together, while momentarily pressing the reset button.
If this does not work then the unit is not designed to pick up European frequency steps.
