Iv turned a little problem into a big problem....Each time i turned the ignition on my sound settings would reset ect, so i took my head unit out to see if the consent power supply wire was connected to it and realised it wasnt, after trying to find out which is the right wire to connect (i did this by useing trial and error method and connecting wires back up) now the head unit wont power up at all?? i know there is power going to the cd player it self, because when the head unit isnt attached the red security light flashes on the cd player. i think by connecting wrong wires together i have blown some fuse but i have checked the ones on the cd player and in fuse box in car has anyone any ideas please???????
Re: Kenwood head unit not powering up help please.
Find your remote wire. it would help to know the type of car and the kind colors of wires your using as your 3 main wires.
normally in most chevy and fords they are yellow 12 volt.
black as ground.
red sometimes even a tan as your remote start.

I've found that I need to have my phone on with Bluetooth enabled before the head unit powers on (i.e.starting the car). If it's already started I just pop the faceplate and snap it back in to power cycle the head unit. At that point Bluetooth always connects properly.
Your head unit is now connected correctly. That is how it is intended to be installed. Unless it doesn't store the radio stations. In that case the power cables of the head unit (RED&YELLOW) are incorrectly connected, but not a big problem.
hope that helps
Be sure that the yellow wire from the cd player is connected to a +12 volt source. ONe god source is the orange wire from the cigarette lighter if the cigarette lighter is working fine. If not run a wire from the yellow wire of the cd player to the fuse block in one of the pins marked "bat". Good luck. Please rate.
Possible problems: 1) No output from the head unit. Try a different set of preamp outs. 2) No input to the amp. Check the RCA's and make sure that they are good and coming from a functioning preamp or subwoofer output on the head unit. 3) Input gain turned off or down too low. 4) Speaker wiring shorted, grounded, or open. Check all wires. 5) Speakers defective. Connect to a known good output to test. 6) The amp itself could be defective and still show a power-on indication.
make sure all your gains are turned up to atleast half.
Check your head unit, make sure your low pass frequency for the RCA's amp is set to high or set to more than 0. Make sure you don't have your fader set toward the front of the vehicle or you won't get any bass, but the subwoofer will be pulling only what the head unit is sending to the amplifier.
if that doesn't work I would try another pair of patch cables.
Do you have another subwoofer you can swap out to test your subwoofer with?
I have a subwoofer that has something wrong with the coil itself. Has your amplifier blown any fuses? If so the subwoofer coil is bad.
Also make sure you have a solid ground for your amplifier.
Hope this helps!
I fixed the sound problem with tech support from Kenwood. I had the blue wire from the Kenwood which is the antennae turn on wired to the amp turn on for the vehicle (2001 Blazer with Bose factory stereo). This is how I was told to wire it from the installation tech where I purchased the wiring harness. The tuning played fine because the Bose amp turned on when I played the tuner but when I played the cd or aux the amp turned off, thus no sound. The kenwood tech toldd me to wire the blue/white wire to the amp turn on for the vehicle so the amp would be on when ever power to the Kenwood was on. I rewired this way and everything works great now.
I have a question. Everything is working perfectly except for there is no picture on the TV nor DVD. It was working fine until the other day when I messed around with some wires seeing if any of them were loose. Any suggestions?
