Question about Jensen 100W x 4 Amplifier KA5 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

VRCD400-SDU My car stereo keeps bouncing to USB or Memory Card from the tuner or the CD player. I can't listen to music & it's getting very frustrating. Help! It worked well until I hooked my mp3 player up to it. Do I maybe have it hooked up wrong?

Hi Theaternut,


Best guess is that your source button or whichever button changes from cd, to Tuner, to usb, to Card, is shorted, and needs cleaning.  Its like the button is always pushed.


see if you can carefully dsiassembly the reciever to get to the circuit board behind the button I speak of, and clean it.

Where is the amp located for 1997 ford explorer. I am trying to install an aftermarket radio. I have the harness that I need, but where is the amp and the antenna lead tuner box located in the vehicle?

right side above the rear wheel well -you have to remove the panel which has fasteners everywhere and a few screws under the carpet-might have to get a special antenna adapter too- ford premium stereos are weird like that-good luck

Error code 13 on my car stereo

I visited and found the following in the manual: Problem: MP3/WMA Files on the USB/SD flash memory do
not play.
Answer: Flash memory is formatted as NTSC.
Format the flash memory as FAT or FAT32.
The files have Digital Rights Management(DRM).
If the files you are attempting to play were
purchased online, they may have Digital Rights
Management, this unit is not DRM compatible.

You may want to call VR3 at (800) 445-1797 and inquire about that specific code just in case though the answer above was not given as "error 13" I just made an educated guess based on the problem given.
