Question about Kenwood KDC-215S CD Player

1 Answer

No power I just bought this car from someone and don't have the manual to the CD player. It's been fine all along...even last night, then I popped the faceplate on this morning and the only thing that happens is it will pull in and expel CD's. There are no lights, no sound...apparently no power. I tried the off/on switch and nothing happens...Where is the reset button and where are the fuses and connections I should check?

Re: no power

Get a test light. check for good power on both the red and yellow wires with the key on. only one wire should have power with the key off... If one power is missing the deck will not work. Also make sure the deck has a good ground connection on the black wire.... if the unit has good power and ground and does not work the unit is probhably junk... i am willing to bet you are probhably missing a power though.

I can't get the CD to eject.... in fact, I can't get the unit to acknowledge there is even a CD/mp3 option... IT just flips back and forth between tuner and aux. It was cold last night when I put a Cd in...

When you remove the faceplate you will find a small little black hole in the deck.Insert an opened paperclip to over ride the eject and make it come out.Please let me know if this helps

CDA 9885 No idea why it suddenly stopped working

It sounds like you have a bad ground connection. You need to take the radio out and check all the connections. I bet you have a loose one somewhere. That is what the problem was with my bronco

Stopped working

Try getting in your car and turning on all of your accecories like windsheild wipers interior light turn signals ect.if other accesories are not working locate your fuse panel and look for a fuse that corresponds to an accesorie that is not working ,replace it and it should work.If the cd player is an aftermarket cd then they have an inline fuse on the back of the unit either directly plugged into the stereo or it there will be a fuse in one of the power wires.replace if blown and you should be fine,Rate me FIXYA! if this helps.GOOD LUCK.

Stored settings and auto eject

Hi. SOunds like another case of power problems. Your deck has 2 power wires. One is yellow th eother is red. One is constant 12 volt battery power, the other is a switched 12 volt power, only has power with the ignition key on or on accesory. Get yourself a test light. I almost bet you do not have the constant 12 volt power to the deck, therefore your deck cannot hold its presets...

First of all, you aren't going to like this solution because it's the truth. If you rate me poorly, it's because you don't understand the truth. The optical pickup is bad and needs to be replaced. Anything made by Xtreme sound is poorly built. Yes, you're lucky to have even gotten four months use out of it. I've seen some that only last for two months and they die. Fortunately, that's why you didn't pay that much for it. I would suggest getting a Pioneer in the future.
