Question about Kenwood Car Audio & Video
To find where to hook up your power lead. The best way is with an inexpensive test light. You can get one at the local auto parts house. It looks like a screwdriver with a light-up handle and a wire pigtail on one end and instead of a screwblade it's got an ice-pick like tip.
Connect the aligator clip end to a metal grounding location under the dash, and then with the key on, probe with the pointed end on some of the wiring near the fuse block or under the steering column. When the light in the test light illuminates, you've found a hot. Now turn the key off and see if the light goes out. That will be your hot for the the accessory hot.
Then you'll most likely need to find a constant hot. This will be a wire that illuminates your test light whether the key is on or off. This one is hooked to the hot that is constant...it's the one that keeps all your radio stations and the memory items intact when the key is turned off.
So you'll have 2 a constant hot and an "accessory" hot that's only on with the key.
If you need wiring diagrams for your car, let me know.

The connector that plugs into the blower motor under the glove box became too hot and melted the plastic resulting in the a/c and heat not to work (this includes the windshield defroster). I've been looking up problems and solutions and found that this is a recurring problem with GMC and chevy trucks yet there has not been any recall, in fact the dealerships have an extremely overpriced kit to fix their faulty wiring. About 66,000 mi.
