    I recently changed my car therefore
    transferred my cd player my new but each time I switch my engine off
    after a couple of minutes the cd resets itself losing preset stations
    and equalizer settings. I have been informed that there are two power wires one for memory and the other for key on power and that the memory must have power regardless of key on or off but is there anything I can do to set it or do I have to go to a service shop to get this rectified?? Please help!

Nothing wrong , there are two power wires , one for memory and the other for key on power , memory must have power regardless of key on or off

    if you feel confident in fixing the power wire issue then there are a few ways to do it , one is run a 10-12 guage wire from positive battery terminal to the memory wire on the radio , please use some kind of fuse no farther than 10 inches from battery between the radio and battery 10 to 15 amp , or find a hot wire under the dash and tap into that but it could cause other problems , or consult factory wire diagram for factory radio and use those wires , this would be best

Are you using an amplifier? If so make sure you are using the blue/white wire to turn your amp on. The blue wire is power antenna turn on and turns off when leaving tuner mode.

When you unhooked your deck it still had power going to it, you need to unplug your car battery and plug it back in that should reset the deck and get the error message to go away.
Good luck,

NO memory in kenwood kdc-mp205


check your wiring in your vehicle to make sure that the yellow wire from the stereo gets "constant" power. It it what keeps your stereo's memory, and powers the audio amp in the stereo. If this wire is loosing power when you shut the key off in your car, you will loose all of your settings...bass, treble, tuner, clock, and also where you left off on your CD.

To stop the memory loss you need to swap the red and yellow wires around. (battery power and ignition power).

To stop the date loss, you need to cut the electrical ariel/remote blue wire.

Ejects CD every time it is turned on


it sounds like you have got the permanent live and the switched ignition live the wrong way round. if you check which positive 12v supply goes off when you turn the ignition off and remove the key and connect that one to the one which stays 12v when the key is turned off and vice versa that should solve your problem

Hi. SOunds like another case of power problems. Your deck has 2 power wires. One is yellow th eother is red. One is constant 12 volt battery power, the other is a switched 12 volt power, only has power with the ignition key on or on accesory. Get yourself a test light. I almost bet you do not have the constant 12 volt power to the deck, therefore your deck cannot hold its presets...

Car stereo problem


im not sure if its just newer cars only or most cars but some have whats called a courtesy fuse probley located under your hood. check that fuse. easiest way to locate that fuse is just by calling plymouth and ask, another way to check to make sure if your cd player works in that car is to connect your yellow constant wire with your red power wire and see if the player works if so you could probley leave it like that but when you turn off your car you would lose all your settings and such like the time setting therefore it is not recomended, give it a try good luck
