No sound.

The first thing you need to do is doublechecking all the new wirings, it sounds like a contact.

I am trying to connect a kenwood KDC-MP3035 to a 1997 Honda Passport but none of the wires match up, what do i do to make it work?

Hello oz101ez,

The wires have to be matched by function, not by color. Here is a link to the color code for the stock radio harness in your Passport. Connect whatever color wire your Kenwood manual says is for 12V + (usually yellow for most aftermarket receivers) to the "red/white" in your Passport. Connect the Kenwood accessory wire (usually red) to the brown/white wire in your passport. Just continue matching up each wire function and colors on both ends.

Best would be an aftermarket wiring harness vehicle specific for the Honda Passport/Isuzu Rodeo. The Metra 70-7712 seems to be the correct one for your vehicle. probably has the largest selection of wiring harnesses available anywhere. They'll even match the vehicle harness to an aftermarket receiver harness and connect them using solder and heat-shrink insulation if you desire.

Most local car audio shops will carry some wiring harnesses. Also retailers like Best Buy may have them, albeit at much inflated prices. Online car audio retailers like and have a good selection and their prices will probably be somewhere in between, lower than local but higher than

Hope this helps.

Installing newer radio in older truck

Hello zachary_reed,

What you need is an aftermarket wiring harness. These are made by Metra, Scosche, and others and are made to plug directly into the OEM radio harness. It appears that the one you want is the Scosche FB02B available from SonicElectronix. You simply connect the wires from your new receiver to the harness wires and then plug it into the factory radio plug. Another online retailer that sells aftermarket harnesses is Your local car audio shop or perhaps Best Buy may also have the wiring harness.

Be sure to match up the wires from your new radio harness to the aftermarket harness by FUNCTION, not by color. For example, most newer receivers will use Yellow as the 12V constant (hot) wire. The wiring color code for your F150 is shown here. Make sure that the pin on the aftermarket harness is connecting the yellow from your new receiver to the green/yellow of the OEM plug and so on.

Hope this helps.
