Question about Kenwood KDC-MP205 CD Player
I just installed a car stereo and i have no sound going to any of my speakers yet all the wires seem to be connected coreectly. i have checked and triple checked them several times
Does the stereo have a switch in the back that switches between Amp and Pre-Amp ? Some units mute the high level speaker output if it's switched to pre-amp mode in the case where you would use the RCA jacks to route the low level audio to external amplifiers. I can you further if you give me the make and model. Also, good info could be found on details of your unit at www.crutchfield.com.

I am having this same problem with my Kenwood MP205. The pre-out switch is digitally done in the menu. For me it doesn't seem to matter what it is on, doesn't work. It is not in "Protect Mode" due to wire being shorted either.

Connect each wire yourself if your were unable to obtain a wiring harness to install your car stereo.
Connect the positive wire from each speaker to the positive connector on the back of the stereo first. Then connect the negative wire from each speaker to the negative connector on the back of the stereo. If there is only one wire coming from the speakers, the speakers are grounded at the chassis. In this case you will need to install new speaker wiring.
Connect the ground (-/black) wire of the stereo to a screw or bolt near where the radio is mounted in the dash. Make sure the wire is attached to metal, not plastic or fiberglass.
Connect the 12 constant and ignition power wires (both +/red) to the new stereo. Refer to your stereo's installation manual to make sure these go to the correct places.
