Re: no sound on ddx 514 kenwwod..when hooked up ipod to...
This is a faily simple fix. First of all, this USB will not be able to playback audio from an iPod or iPhone without using the correct cable. The cable needed has both USB and an audio plug on it. Here is a link to the Kenwood cable you will need:

No offense but this is actually not the solution. There is a quirk with some Kenwood DDX 419. The manual on page 24 makes it clear that it is supposed to play audio through an ipod cable alone, only if you want to stream audio and video or the Garmin App should you need the other cable with the dual plugs (usb and audio). I bought one for my car and had it installed last week and it works right from the USB (only) with my iphone 4s and does not need the extra audio plug in which is inferior sound quality (analog) compared to the USB only (digital). I bought a second deck for my wife's car and had them install it this week and it did not work with the USB alone. The one on demo in Future shop did not work either with the USB alone. The manual for the DDX 419 makes it clear that it is supposed to stream audio without the extra cable. It reads, "To listen to the music (digital): USB Audio cable for iPod/iPhone-- KCA-iP102 (optional accessory). Look up the cable by google searching and you will see that even on the Kenwood site it is a regular iPod/iPhone cable. There is obviously a glitch with certain decks and they are not addressing it. I am returning mine and getting a Pioneer.
It seems the system is working fine. If you have the manual, please do read it througly. Check the cables for the usb, it might be damaged. Also reset the whole unit by pressing reset button, it should work. Thanks
90% of new and aftermarket harness' are the same, Red any Yellow are Constant 12v and ACC. 12v. Black is ground, Green is rear left speakers, Purple is the right rear. White is front left and Grey front right. Blue solid is Power Antenna, Blue with a white is an AMP Relay. (Which is another 12v ACC) You should have some sort of AV in/out lines for the rear screens, if that was an issue.
on any of the KVT or DDX model kenwood radios, you can just ground the ebrake wire. which will allow you to watch video and have navi functions while driving. just connect it to the black wire of the kenwood or the metal chassis of your dash.
hope this helps
