Question about Kenwood Car Audio & Video
I installed a Kenwood KDC-MP442U last night and it went well. Everything worked fine.
This morning it was business as usual but when I got to work I shut off the car, then I had to start the car again to move it and it stalled, this happened a few times and I could only get going if I kept on the gas constantly, the same thing happened when I left work and it stalled a few times on the way home.
I don't think there is a drain on the battery because it stars up right away, no chugging, but it then immediately stalls...
The only issue I had with the install were that I had trouble finding a good place to ground the receiver, and I grounded to a bolt that has another thing attached, could that be it?
Also, there was a third harness from the car to the factory deck that had one little wire, but no place on the aftermarket harness or receiver to connect it, I just left it alone...
Maybe this might be the problem. take of both off and clean the area around the bolt. use a wire brush and make sure you have a metal on metal contact. if your stalling when you have the sound system up to high you need to install a capacitor to your amp(if you installed an amp that is).
dose you car cut out at the same time every time ?
or this only when your stop ? or are going up hill ?
are there any dash lights on ? ......
