    Also, does the tuner work ok? Is the problem ONLY when a disc is put in?

Hey i wired up everything correctly in my 05 colorado with the BOSS BV9970 INDASH CAR DVD/CD PLAYER 7" TOUCHSCREEN and it wont turn on any suggestions to what the problem might be

There could be a few things wrong with it. The first thing I would do is check the ground wire. It should be solidly connected to a paint-free surface of your vehicle that is connected to the chassis. The next thing I would check is the connection between the power wire lead from the vehicle and the lead from the head unit. If neither of those are the problem, the only other thing it could be (other than a faulty wire somewhere along the power circuit, which can be tested for using an ammeter) is a lack of power to the power wire lead from the car. Test that wire using an ammeter and make sure it is receiving power.

New Kenwood Cd Player won't work

Hello! Even though you believe the wiring is not the problem...The wiring, more times than not, is the problem...When you first turned the unit on the volume maxed out at 20...I believe you have a wiring error in the ground portion of circuit...

Here is the wiring for your vehicle...

Illumination = Gray
Constant +12= Orange/Black....Memory lead
Switched +12= Yellow...Power-on via ignition
Ground= Black...Outside metal case of CD
Must read zero ohms to
chassis and negative batt.
terminal of vehicle when
Check your connections with a voltmeter...


FR+ = Dark Green
FR- = Light Green
FL+ = Tan
FL- = Gray
RR+ = Dark Blue
RR- = Light Blue
RL+ = Brown
RL- = Yellow

The spark means that +12 volts was tied to the case of the unit and when the case touched chassis ground it caused the spark...Lets make sure you have checked all the fuses..I'll give them to you in a minute...

With the unit set on the carpet... Place one lead of an ohm meter on the case of the unit and the other lead on the vehicle' chassis...You should read a dead short which proves that the case of the unit
(via wiring ) is connected to proper ground...I would bet that it is not...Here are the fuses...
Radio fuse= 10A...This powers the Yellow ignition lead...But it also has an in-line fuse that carries +12 volts to the steering wheel controls
(if equipped)...Last fuse is the Int lamp fuse 10A which powers the Orange/Black constant +12 lead...

Wire as given...provided that the unit is unharmed...
your tunes should return...Let me know how you make out.....

The clock works but when I turn the cd on, there is no power.

Is a fuse blowing when the CD turns on? If so, it is either the fuse is not large enough to power the CD player, or there is a short within the player itself. Typical fuse sizes for a car CD player vary from 5 to 15 amps, but be sure to see what size is specified in the manual for your specific player.

If not, check the voltage on the main + power lead with the CD attached. If you see a sudden voltage drop when you activate the CD, you likely have a bad connection between the power source and the CD player, or between the CD player and ground. Check crimp terminals, connections at the battery or fuse panel, or any other point where wires have been joined. Remember to check both the positive (+) and negative connections. A faulty connection on either end may permit enough power to supply the clock, but not enough when the additional load for the CD player is required.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

My clarion dxz385usb has no sound.

Check to make sure exposed wires aren't grounding themselves out. I just had this problem and after 2 days of re-wiring and re-checking almost every wire I finally found the culprit. The Remote wire from my amp has become exposed and grounded itself out. Unit worked fine, same problems you are having.

Problem with radio in vw sharan

First remove the unit so as to access the power and ground leads. Then with a voltage testers ground lead attached to the head units ground wire operate the unit as normal until the shutdown happens. Then test both power supply leads for 12+ vdc (one is a constant 12+ volts memory feed and the other is a switched 12+volts for operating functions)
If ether of these do not register 12+ volts then you need to find a different power source. If they do register 12+ volts then the problem is in the head unit. In which case if you are emotionally attached to that unit then have it serviced, if not replace it.

Note: A replacement may be cheaper...

Good luck

CD player wont come on was doing weird things

You have your accessory wire (red wire) and remote ran together and the yellow (constant wire ran separately in the dash?

You need the red wire to so you can use accessory and to turn off your cd player when your vehicle turns off.

You need the yellow wire to keep all your settings stored. base/treble/time clock

Just a little clarification. Your amp turns on with the remote wire (blue) wire, if that is not hooked up you will get no power to the amp.

Here's the in-dash diagram to your vehicle at the bottom of this pdf.

You want to focus on N,O, and P

Do you happen to have an after market wiring harness? These can be bought from walmart for your vehicle. You just take the male end connect the colors together and plug end that goes to your cd player into the female end. Very easy to do.

Windshield wiper issue: Check C1002, 1003, and 1004 under your hood.

You could also have one of these fuses out under your hood, that might cause you to lose power to everything.

Let me know if you need more assistance =)

Kenwood KDC-MP202 sound turns off when headlights are turned on

just solved a similar problem on my car i bought a Cd/dvd player for my 2000 concord lxi i hooked it up and hooked a rear-view camera and it worked perfect but wen i turned the headlights on the cd player shuts of so i disconnected the orenge wire that came out of my cd player from the orange on the aftermarket harness then grounded the ping wire (rear con wire) it worked fine but i couldn't see any footage from the camera for that i bought a long red power wire and hooked it to the red camera power wire that hooked from camera to reverse light and took the other end of the new wire i bought and hooked it to the orange wire that came out of the cd player now every thing works fine. you probably dont have the right power to run both cd and head lights thats why you need constant power to run both just hook up an extra wire between a positive wire to the orange dimmer wire its simple;

ground to ground (black)
12+ positive to 12+ positive (red)
and an extra wire (usually a red 18 guage wire bought mine at walmart) to the dimmer wire from the back of the cd player (orange) edit.gif

Kenwood DDX6019 No Sound with CD/DVD

It is what Turbo911 stated. If you switch the solid blue wire (powere antenna) with the blue&white wire (power control) this will solve the issue. The blue wire is made to power an antenna in which is only used when on FM source. When this is connected to amps, it will shut off your amp as soon as you leave FM radio
