Question about Kenwood Sirius KDC-MP522 CD Player
I had a aftermarket pioneer cassette deck in my 04' chevy silverado, and I was given a slighty used Kenwood KDC-MP522 by a friend, which worked fine when he removed it from his vehicle. I pulled out the a cassette, unplugged it, and plugged in the kenwood, the door alarm beeped, and i could hear the cd player mechanically moving inside, then I checked to see if it would power up, so I turned the key to battery, but not the car on. Nothing, the deck has power and will try and eject a disk if promted, but no lights display...just a faint crackling on the door beeper in the dash... Im very confused because no fuse are burnt and the swap was basicaly seemless....I just used the exsiting aftermarket harness from the first player becuase the two were a match as far as hook-ups... any ideas?
Ok. recheck your harness. WIth some brands yes the harness will plug into the radio from a different manufacturer but recheck the wire colors. They usually change pins out. For example whats power on a particular pin may be a speaker wire on another brand unit with the same style plug... so get the harness that came with this radio. Check the pin location and wire color on that pin to the other harness. I almost guarantee that there is a difference. Hopefully you didnt damage your new cd player... let me know how it goes...
