Question about Kenwood eXcelon KDC-X579 CD Player

1 Answer

Kenwood iPod Interface

I have a Kenwood radio with an iPod cable. The first time I plugged the iPod/iPhone in the radio read the iPod/iPhone and everything worked correctly. The second time I used the iPod the radio won't read the iPod. The music will play, but I can't select which song or what order to play it in. I brought the Kenwood radio back in to where I bought the boat (this radio is mounted in a boat), and they reset it or something. Then again, the first time I used the iPod the radio read the iPod and everything worked correctly again the first time. The second time I tried to use it the Kenwood radio could not read the iPod. Could you tell me how to reset the radio to read the iPod? And, can you tell me what I'm doing wrong to cause it not to work the second time around?

Does the Kenwood KDC MP5032 have an aux input? If so, where is it?


Hi there,

Kenwood utilize the CD Changer plug in the back (which acts as a secondary Aux input), to operate external iPod devices.

This is done with the aid of an Adapter Lead - it has the 13-pin DIN plug on one end (plugs into the rear of your unit), and an iPod plug on the other end (plugs into your iPod).

Depending on the "Generation" of your external iPod device, you will need to buy the appropriate Kenwood adapter cable. These are: KCA-IP102, KCA-IP202 or KCA-IP302.

There may be some aftermarket (3rd party) cables that may do the same job.

Just ensure you read your Kenwood manual, as the Kenwood unit may be limited to the types of files (i.e. formats) it can read & play.

Hope this explains....

Cheers,

I have a kenwood KDC-MP438U stereo. Ipod error.


Hi If anything the stereo was probably designed and tested using a certain version of the Iphones software, now that version 4 has been released the way the IPhone communicates may have changed.

As a result the stereo is no longer able to talk to the phone and vice versa. your probably best off contacting Kenwood direct to see if they are aware of this problem and if there is anything that can be done about it.

My kenwood KDC-MP342U stopped reading my ipod i just got it within the past two weeks and it was working fine and the all of a sudden when i pluggedd my ipod in all it says is reading. i have tried to use...


I had the same problem with my first gen ipod touch. The reset button is on the front panel, between the Fast Forward button and the "1" button. Push it with a pen or something with the unit turned on. It will go dark then come back. You'll have to set up your preamp and other stuff again. I also now push the eject button before removing my ipod or USB thumb drives. The display will flash "remove". I guess this does some handshaking that cleans things up before removal.

Auxillary option not available in menu


Try putting the unit in standby via the "SRC" button FIRST..., then press the menu button and cycle through to the "AUX 1" option and activate this....then press menu button again. When the unit is next switched on, you should have an "AUX" option accessible via the "SRC" button which will cycle through all of the availale modes ....standby-tuner-cd-aux etc etc.
