You will find that there is a voltage surge upon starting, solution is quite simple, try to avoid starting the engine with the unit on, as you may blow more than a fuse.

Hello johnnychi925,

The unit appears to have been installed on the 12vdc connection that is on the same circuit as the the vehicle's ignition switch. This means that when the ignition is turned there is a rapid drop in voltage which cause the problem with your device. You need to connect the device to a 12vdc circuit that comes straight from the battery and does not connect to the ignition circuit. Now for another possible cause if the 12vdc you are connected to is from the battery and not the ignition connection. The battery could be dropping below 12vdc during the starting of your vehicle. This could be the sign of a malfunctioning battery, or a problem with the car's electrical system.

To test out if the battery ids dropping below 12vdc I would suggest connecting a voltmeter to the - and + of the battery and starting the car. The voltage should drop but not below 12vdc.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

Kenwood kvt817dvd powers up after reset but cuts out after src


I removed my brain from beneath my seat and exposed all wires and connections. I have found that on mine (kvt-815) there were two pinched wires- 1 for a speaker and the other the remote wire. I respliced these sections and tested my radio again. It appears to be working now and stays on again. I'm guessing one of the wires must have been touching something metal under the seat (seat frame) and grounding out. If the unit doesn't power on at all, check the fuse first. Otherwise, I would  inspect every wire like I did and maybe you'll find a pinched (grounded) wire. Maybe I just got lucky... but at least it's working again and I don't have to replace the brain! Hope this helps.

Passcode


You might have bought a stolen one. I was installing a sub in my car and unplugged mine and it required a pass code, which i forgot for a while, but luckily remembered. I called about getting it reset and they said I had to bring it in to a official Kenwood ceter in order to get it reset. I would just suggest to call Kenwood. Also, i'm currently looking for a new one because mine was stolen again, so hopefully the person who stole it is having a problem installing it in there car. good luck.
