Car stereo just randomly stop work doesnt allow me to turn up volume or change stations or set it to aux none of the buttons work but the stereos turns on.. what could it be???

Well knowing what stereo you have would help, but mine, the volume knob doubles as the settings knob if you press it. In some newer systems like mine, you should find a "back" button (small arrow) like on a cell phone. Trying using that to escape the settings mode that you might have activated.

Dont want to lose stork controls and trip computer on fiesta st??

You have to bypass your entire factory system, it takes some customizing and careful installation, too much information to write over Fix Ya advice, phone or actual physical support in a car stereo shop is your best bet.

Good luck my friend.

"Down volume" button on Pioneer head unit in my '05 Scion broken

I had a similar problem with one of the cursor type keys - I ended up taking the face apart (4 small screws on the back then gently prise apart) & discovered the small pin attached to the back of the button which presses the internal switch had slipped off the pad, it took a couple off attempts to put it back together again but once it was re-assembled it was fine, just be careful not to lose anything! ;)

Losing power

mine does this too, I have the deck on my boat and on land the deck cuts out when a bass line hits or loud music comes in, cuts out at about 20 on the volume level, however, when on the water and the motor is running, my voltage is up to 14 vdc or so.. At this point, I can crank the deck up to 30-37, and it will scream , doesnt cut out or lose power just rocks. I have heard that kenwood decks are competition stereos and require 14-16vdc, but I have never found any proof of this. One thing you can do is order a battery from that runs higher than 12vdc. But then again im just speculating

Turns off / shuts down by it self

not sure if my last post was posted, but my unit has the same problem. It can randomly shut off after 2, 5 or 10 min. I have read somewhere, that it might be the fan on the back of the unit. still looking for solution....

Remote works, but not the reciever

This one is tough one. It soundslike you have lost the connection between the flip face and the main head unit. I suggest you pull the head unit and get it to a bench for closer investigation. Look for and tears in the connecting wire harness between the Flip control, and the main Unit.

Auxilary RCA inputs have no volume control

Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier. If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).
