Hi nickskura,

You system is in "protect mode". The receiver goes into protection mode to keep it from causing damage to itself. Please connect your speaker wire and terminals at the speaker. Ensure the it's not shorting and no bare spots.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Your unit should have 2 plugs in the back...one for the audio and power wires to connect to your factory connections and the other plug is just RCA connections for your video, subs and front speakers. If you have a 4 channel amp and a amp for your subs, you will have to split the 4 channel amp down to 2 and run them to your front RCA connections. Subs will connect to the sub connections. If yours are not listed then you may have to track down a wiring diagram. Hope this helps.

My subwoofer won't play while watching a movie or playing iPod only while on the radio. Why?


it sounds like the "remote wire" on the amp is coming from the "power antenna" output of the radio instead of the "remote turn-on" wire or in the case of kenwood, the "power cont." wire. Sounds like that's whats happening.... switch the wires on the kvt-512, should be a blue wire and a blue/white wire. hope that helps, dave

Is the park signal wire supposed to be hooked to the ground side or power side of parking brake switch? I'm trying to install a kvt 512 for a buddy, and the dvd player wont work with out the park signal.


If you want to by-pass the parking brake wire, here's how.
Most wiring harnesses have a solid orage wire for illumination of the radio2_bing.gif and also have an orange wire with a white stripe for dimming purposes. Most radios do not use this dimming feature. Connect the brake wire to this wire and your able to watch your movies whenever you want. All the wire is looking for is a signal. It cannot differentiate between a parking brake signal and a non-parking brake signal.

Kenwood KVT-512 iphone compatibility


Just ignore the airplane mode prompt and if your wiring is correct everything should work.
With my BMW I had to connect both the solid blue (pwr ant) wire and the blue with white stripe (p conn) to the solid blue wire from the factory harness.

It isn't obvious that either of these are needed as the KVT-512 has it's own power supply but the way most factory power amps are installed the power from the KVT-512 is not used and the car manufacturers power amp needs to be turned on.

If you are listening to the radio the pwr ant wire will turn on the power amp, this didn't seem obvious because the BMW doesn't have a power antenna. And when you are using the DVD player or the iPod connection you need the P Conn wire to turn on the car power amp as the ant pwr is disabled because you are no longer using the radio and Kenwood assumes you will not need the antenna so no power to this lead.

Solder all three wires together and you should have sound all the time.

Does anyone knows where to conect the dimmer wire of a kenwood kvt-514 or kvt-512??


Connect to the side light live. So when you turn the lights on it dims the display.
