Every Button Switches Between Radio and CD

Reset the radio by pressing a sharp object (pin, pen, etc.) into the small reset hole on or behind the face. If it doesn't have one, disconnect the negative cable from the battery for two minutes and reconnect. If you still have this problem, the radio is bad.

What are the two short female rca cables are that stick out of the back of my deck

Aux Audio Input. Lets say you wanted to hook up a DVD player and have it play through your radio, you could connect the audio portion of the DVD player to these inputs and put you radio on AUX and the DVD audio would play through your radio..

Radio stations wont store once key is taken out

if the unit only looses radio station presets then there is a defect with the unit. if the unit looses all its memory, (clock, stations, settings) then there is an issues with your aux power. basically you have the main power connect properly so it turns on the unit while the cars is on but the aux power keeps those settings.

Sub doesnt kick on when put cd in only comes on when turn on radi

I had the same problem, but in my case it was a factory amp.

The blue wire on the deck harness is for a power antenna, and only powers up when the tuner is in use, not in the cd or aux mode. Therefore if you are using the blue wire (on the adapter or car side) to power the remote power on your amp, you would need to connect that blue wire (on the adapter or car side) to a keyed power source. This way the keyed source supplies power when the key is on, and will not cut out when the mode is changed from "Tuner" to "CD" or "AUX".

I just connected to the keyed source on my radio harness, but then, I am not running any kind of system, just the basics.

Changed car battery & Kenwood execolon kdc-X592 AUX is gone

Try pressing 'menu', scroll to "built in aux", and toggle to the 'on' position. Then the aux input should be available again. The radio losing power would have reset any internal memory causing it to go back to factory defalts. Hope this helps

To listen to the aux input of the stereo you must press the source button. If you are listening to the radio it will go to CD when you press it if a cd is in the cd deck, if you keep pressing it you should get to the aux input.
