Your Jetta has two power feeds, one is always live and one is switched.

Unfortunately the color of the wire sometimes varies by model or year so I can't tell you which one.

I assume you're using an aftermarket harness that you've spliced to the kenwood harness. If it came with documentation (the harness), it should tell you which feed is always live and which is switched. if not you can test the leads with a volt meter when the car is on and when it's off.

You most likely have your power line on the Kenwood deck hooked to the line that's always live. Find the switched line, and connect that one instead. Should work.

I would start by disconnecting the radio and hooking it up right,the power should go through the ignition switch.So that when you turn the car off the radio will go off and to hear it on again you have to turn the key to accessory or start it.That might take care of a few of your problems.

For your Jetta, you may need a different wiring harness.

You need to be able to trace the wiring from the two dins on the back of the Kenwood receiver, and une the wiring diagram for the 1996 Jetta.

Perform your cross reference here for the receiver wiring:

Here's the wiring for your Jetta:

From the jetta wiring, it looks like your Right Front speaker isn't connected.

hello chevi1981..what can happen is if whoever installed your system did not run your speaker wires properly eg if they have worn through and touching metal or a screw through the wires ,it can blow the audio ics in unit resulting in no sound.all these high powered units have above ground circuits in the audio stage .to check ,hook up a separate speaker direct to your unit,separate wiring ,if no sound, will most likely be the intergrated circuits..these will have to be changed by a tech as cd players are a beast to work on,also your 2 speaker wires should not touch one another.with your sec code if your have a removable face you may not have a code ,as removing face is your security .hope this helps
