IF YOU DID NOT PRESS THE RESET BUTTON NEX TO THE USB PLUG, DO IT. IT WILL REINITIATE THE DEVICE TO THE FACTORY; YOU WILL HAVE TO ADJUST THE CLOCK.

SOURCE: USB folder names-Kenwood KDC-X591

Push the AME button in the upper right hand corner of the unit and at the same time hold the fast forward button on the face of the unit - do this for 5 secs. The word "Code" should pop up (not blinking).

Using your remote control press the following numbers:
5 (two times for letter "K")
2 (three times for letter "C")
2 (one time for letter "A")
7 ((two times for letter "R")

Then using your remote control, press the fast forward button and you are done. "Approved" should pop up on the unit.

Hope this helps!

Different or additional harness needed to install a Kenwood kdc 255u radio/cd player in a 2005 Scion XB?


Hi there,

YES.... to prevent cutting of any factory wiring (this use to be the old install method and requires much more time and expense) and potential electrical fires, you can now buy quite cheaply, what is called a Radio adapter harness.

As you wish to install a Kenwood radio to your Toyota Scion, simply buy an adapter loom which has a 2005 Toyota Plug on one end, with a Kenwood plug on the other (this essentially replaces the wiring loom that came with your Kenwood unit).

So, it's that easy .... Plug and Play.

And... if you sell your Toyota and wish to put your old Toyota radio back in, the original radio just plugs back in. PRESTO !


Hope this helps..

Cheers,

Scott

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 bought a used car and it already had a kenwood kdc-x890 installed. my question is when i plug my zune or even just a mp3 player into the usb port it responds with [n/a data].


The KDC-X890 will play MP3s that are stored on a USB mass storage device, such as a USB thumb drive. It won't play music from another MP3 player such as a Zune through the USB port, but you could plug your MP3 player into the auxiliary jack.

Playing ipod on kenwood


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.

Usb kdc-x890 IPOD


The 890 doesn't support iPod control via USB. You can only read plain data storage devices on the USB port, such as a flash drive or portable hard drive. When you plug the iPod in (to a PC or the 890), it doesn't show up as a plain file storage device. Some of the newer Kenwoods do offer direct iPod control via USB. These ones have more "smarts" and are able to properly talk to the iPod and access its music. For the older models, you'll need to buy the special iPod interface, which accesses the iPod like a CD changer.
