with the unit in standby, press the menu key, use the joystick control to choose aux, and set the aux option to "on"...then press menu again to save...when you next switch on the unit, using the SRC button you can cycle through the available options...cd - tuner - aux..etc etc

SOURCE: I can't play my iphone on my kenwood KDC-MP435U

Jennifer, I have the same issue. the problem is that the 2007+ generations of Kenwood receivers are not compatible with the iPhone. You will need to get a 2009+ series in order to use your iPhone with the head unit. I had the same issue with the Kenwood KDC-MP435U in my mustang. I am going to get a newer head unit that supports the iPhone. You cannot do it with the MP435U.

get in to "menu" (hold magnifying glass), scroll to "demo mode" (am or fm button), push volume knob in and hold for about three seconds. Should work, that's how I did it.

There is power to my kenwood radio as the cd player will accept and eject a cd but there is no lights on the radio face plate and i cannot get any musi out of it


You might want to make sure you are getting power to the red wire. The radio will accept and eject cd's if power is going to the yellow wire only. Both wires have to have 12v going to them before the radio will work properly.

I dont understand how to play mp3 player on my kenwood cd player.I have the cord to hook it up to my kenwood radio but i dont know how to get the mp3 to play.


Just plug the cord into the front of the cd player where it says "AUX" and then plug the other end of the cord into the headphone / line out jack on any ipod or mp3 player then select "AUX" instead of CD and the sound will come through the system

I have a kenwood it says,kdc-mp142 and all of a sudden it just says protect. it wont do anything


The Kenwood radio will generally give a "PROTECT" error if the amp or receiver is being overloaded. This may mean that some of your wiring may have gotten frayed, one of your speakers isn't putting out the right voltage, or the receiver has decided to go bad. Make sure all of your connections in the back of the radio are solid and not frayed. If that's not the problem, try running each of the speakers one at a time. If one causes the radio to go into protect mode, that's your culprit.
If neither of these are the issue and the radio decides to stay in "protect" mode, your receiver may have seen better days and may need a replacement.

Model KDC-MP142/CR When turning radio is always goes to STANDBY mode I want the radio to go on in the normal way. Also the clock to backs to 12:00 when radio is turn on. Thanks


Hello swanaprslc,

It sounds like the "always hot" or battery wire is not connected to a 12V constant source. If you used a wiring harness, check and make sure that the pin in the harness that connects to the "yellow" wire coming from your Kenwood MP142 is hot with the ignition off. If you did not use a wiring harness, make sure that the yellow wire is connected to a fused 12V + constant source.

Hope this helps.
