Question about Kenwood KVT-512 Car DVD Player
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
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.
