Question about Kenwood KRC-479R Cassette Player
I just bought a second hand kenwood krc 479r cassette stereo, and i tested it in the previous owneres car to see that it worked - which it did. however, when i got it home and plugged it into my car it does not work. no power, no display, nothing. it has the same connections on the back as my old car stereo. could it be that the wiring inside the stereo is different? i currently have it wired so the right two pins of the bottom plug are the power, and the rest of the wires from the bottom plug are not in use. the top plug deals soley with the speakers. is this correct for this stereo? is there a way to test the stereo is working without wiring it into a car? thanks for reading.
Does your radio have a fuse in the back? mine didnt work and it was only a blown little 10 amp fuse in the back of my radio

If there was no spark and wires hooked up wrong in the first place, your player should work if you find the PWR lead and the Remote lead and ground. Then speaker wires +) and (-
