remove the trim plate(thin plastic strip around your deck) you will see on the center of each side slots for two thin deck keys these always come with a new deck. you you dont have them ask a friend who has recently bought a deck(any make should be fine) or go to your local best buy and ask for a set MAKE SURE YOU ASK FOR THEM FOR FREE unless the installer you asked has purchased his own universal keys they will give you them.
The easiest and most efficient way to hook up your old radio harness to a new head is to use a harness adapter that is made for your vehicle.
If you have not cut off the old plug that went into the old radio then it would be a simple matter of plugging the adapter harness into the old plug and color matching the wires from the adapter to the new head wires, which will be the same colors.
If you go on line to - Installer.com you probably will find the correct adapter for your vehicle. There are other on-line stores that deal with adapters, as well.
If the old plug was cut, it may be possible to splice the plug back to the original wires, then it's a matter of plugging the adapter plug into it.
Hope this helps...
wire it to the live wire most older cars don't have 6 wire config while nearly all new stereos do connect all other wires as they were on the loome but wire the ignition wire to your cars live bypassing the ignition
you have one of your speaker wires shorted out to the body of the car somewhere, or the speakers that you installed are bad. That is the only two reasons it will go into protect. Correct the problem, then reset the deck - it should work fine.
Kenwood builds this feature in to protect the outputs - so they dont burn up in the case of shorted speakers or wiring.
reinstall the factory radio use a digital volt meter to see witch wire supplies voltage when radio is turned on and off, note placement on harness then verify this wire is hooked up on the output side aftermarket harness you may have to jump it to get the maps to turn on. tip you can carefully pull unused wire from harness example (dimmer wire orange white) and move it to the position needed to keep it a clean install .
its probly your ipod. the new classics arent compatible with alot of dock connector related acesories. before you get to angry about your ipod try it with some of your friends crappy old ones to see if they work still. if they dont work then take your deck back but if they do work then you might want to take the deck back and try to find a newer model. good luck ; )
