It sounds like you have a bad speaker. If you do have one, it may be really loud, or, it may be making noise. When you figure out which speaker it may be, disconnect it after the power is off, remove the speaker and put an ohmeter across the terminals of the woofer on it. It shouldn't read less than 4 ohms. Sometimes speaker mfgr's make them in 3 ohm and this would affect the output. The output of the stereo could be either shorted to ground somewhere, a mild short may allow the outputs to work but may eventually burn them up. I would test the speaker wires on the back of the radio with an ohmeter to see if they are shorted or see if they read below 4 ohms on each set of speaker wires when the stereo plug is disconnected.

Sometimes the speakers have crossovers in them which would interfere with the readings, but, you could always disconnect the crossover terminal wires temporarily if you could manage not to ruin them. All in all, the stereo sounds like it is going into protection from a bad speaker, or, possibly low voltage from a loose ground, bad ground, or a bad wire connection. test the voltage from the yellow wire to ground on dc volts with a good digital voltmeter to be sure you are running at 12 volts with the car off minimum, or, 13.5 to 14 volts with the car running. The same with the red wire. Test across the yellow and black, then, find a good shiny piece of metal under the dash, and connect one meter probe to this, then connect it to the black ground wire to check resistance. The meter needs to be on ohms and it should read 1 ohm or lower to show it has a good ground. If it is higher, it may be the problem, especially if it is like 15 or 20 ohms or higher.

Let me know if you still need assistance. I repair this all, but i am in Connecticut.

How to pair your phone to the bluetooth on th kenwood kvt-514


Go into your Setup menu and scroll down to bluetooth settings.

From here you should see a screen that says "HFP connect device", "A2DP connect device" and "Receiver pin code".

Press the "Set" button to the right side of "A2DP" and it should bring you to another screen that says Pair device.

Go onto your phone settings and make sure you have your bluetooth setting on your phone set to "make discoverable"

Press the search button on the Kenwood unit on the right side and it will start scanning for available devices in the vicinity

Also press the Search button on your phone so it also starts scanning.

Next you should get a message on both your phone that shows the Kvt-514 and also a message on the Kenwood that shows either the model of your phone or your "nickname" (if you named your phone)

Select the Kvt-514 on your phone and it will prompt you for the pin code that was on the first bluetooth setup screen...most likely 1111 (you can also set a different pin code using the "set" button to the right side of the "Receiver Pin Code" on the first bluetooth setup screen)

Enter the Pin code and select "Pair" on your phone.

You should get a confirmation on both the Kvt-514 and your phone that they are connected and you're good to go.
