    yeah we checked that and there's nothing wrong there. we think it might be something inside the sterio itself as everything except the face plate is working. any suggestion helps though. thanks

My new dual XDMA450 stereo wont turn on. when i take off the face plate the red sensor light is flashing. this only happens when my head lights are on. what problem am i having with my stereo and why


Check your wiring connections. A similar thing started happening to me out of the blue. The unit would work fine for a period of time, and then just shut off for no reason, and I couldn't get it to come back on. The next day, it would come on again when I started the car and stay on for a while, only to shut down again. The red light behind the face plate continually flashed, regardless of whether the receiver was working. In my case, there was something off in my red wire connection. The unit would turn on / shut off when I moving the wires on either side of the connection. I redid the connection, secured it with electrical tape, and the problem has not reoccurred. If the red wire is not the problem in your case, try the black and yellow connections. These appear to be the wires that could cause this to happen. I can't explain why the power kept repeating the power on / off cycle, unless the wires were in just the right position to be moved / jostled slightly while driving. Hope this helps.

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.

Panasonic cd player not working when pressing the cd button on 98 jeep grand chrokee


check fuses

since you have a jeep thinking you go off road maybe hit couple bumps and jared something loose in the back of sterio system this is what i would check first

after that it might be that the sterio's face plate is not makeing connection right to base sterio

Check the electrical contacts on the back of the faceplate and on the front of the head unit for dirt/other damage. If nothing obvious there I would suggest sending the unit for service.
