Kenwood KVT-512 with bluetooth setup troubles

I have an iPhone and when I turn on the bluetooth function then do the same on the deck it comes up blank. One instruction manual says to check the other on how to set it up so i'm left confused? I had it professionally installed and they never asked to see my phone or anything so I'm not sure if they missed a step or if it's something I can resolve on my own. Thanks

    Yep, me too. I'm connected, but no sound for my phone via bluetooth, and my ipod via ipod connector.

With my BMW I had to connect both the solid blue (pwr ant) wire and the blue with white stripe (p conn) to the solid blue wire from the factory harness.

It isn't obvious that either of these are needed as the KVT-512 has it's own power supply but the way most factory power amps are installed the power from the KVT-512 is not used and the car manufacturers power amp needs to be turned on.

If you are listening to the radio the pwr ant wire will turn on the power amp, this didn't seem obvious because the BMW doesn't have a power antenna. And when you are using the DVD player or the iPod connection you need the P Conn wire to turn on the car power amp as the ant pwr is disabled because you are no longer using the radio and Kenwood assumes you will not need the antenna so no power to this lead.

Solder all three wires together and you should have sound all the time.

This happened to me. What worked was turning off the ipod (not stand by mode). Turn it back on and plug it in, it should work.

Just ignore the airplane mode prompt and if your wiring is correct everything should work.

Does anyone knows where to conect the dimmer wire of a kenwood kvt-514 or kvt-512??


Connect to the side light live. So when you turn the lights on it dims the display.

How do i set up my bluetooth for my kenwood kvt-512. im trying to find the bluetooth app in the settings


The Kenwood 512 works with the Kenwood KCE-BT200 module. You need to have this box plugged into the main unit to work. If not, then Bluetooth will not be available. When you do have it connected, use your cellular phone to initiate the connection. when prompted on your phone for a passcode, it will be 0000. After successfully pairing your phone to the unit, you can access the telephone menu by holding the "FNC" key on the front of the Kenwood or pressing "TEL" from the source screen.
