Don't remember but I think you need "Keys" a couple of funny shaped forks to press in the sides of the head unit...Frankly, if the PCB cable is bad (and you have one). Why not contact a local car audio dealer that sells Kenwood?
Good Luck

I have the same problem that the Grtpumpkin solved.


you have a bad flexible cable. it needs to be replaced. unless you are good at soldering i would not recommend you replace it yourself, as the connector needs to be unsoldered from the old cable and resoldered on the new one.

Replacing the facepale


that hole on that model is for a locking screw, the locking screw is installed to minimize theft and for other precautions. If the face plate is having any odd reactions its normally do to the flex cable. The best sign for a dying or dead flex cable is at the joint. The joint can be viewed at the point when you remove the face plate. Immediately after pulling the face plate off look behind the pivoting frame at the orange colored ribbon, you should only be able to see a small portion of it. If there is any sign of a yellowy residue its a sign that the protective covering of the ribbon is deteriorating. A bad flex cable is everything on the moving face plates.

My Kenwood KDC-7024 has just started playing up - as soon as you turn on the ignition, the face panel comes down, flicks on for all of 2 - 3 seconds and then closes, it then keeps doing this repeatedly...


It's possible the flexible PCB (more of a cable, really) that connects the faceplate to the main unit has cracks in the conductors. This has been an issue with some of the older Kenwood HUs that have the MASK motorized faceplate. The flex-cable gets bent and pinched enough over the years that it eventually cracks the copper.

Kenwood kdc 7009 - just bought car w/ stereo in it, but no remote or codes ?


Look for a small hole in the face plate. Take the tip of a pen and try holding it in for a few seconds. Re-setting it should work.....

Get your Shifter shortened, it will give you faster more controlled shifts, and keep your knuckles out of the dash.

Kenwood MP925 cant get to work


The ribbon cable to the face plate needs replaced. It's an easy fix and any shop that does car audio repairs will likely have them in stock (mine does). Every shop has their own rates but my shop charges around $65-75 to fix that problem. Call around and ask. The bad part is: J84-0153-05 FLEX-RIBBON CABLE FROM FACE TO MAIN PCB

Some flip face stereos use a tiny micro switch to tell the onboard computer when the face is down or up and sometimes it uses the same switch for both positions sensing. It could be this switch is not working properly (dirty contacts, broken, bad wire, mis-aligned, etc.) and that is causing the problem. Good luck.
