Does the Kenwood KDC MP5032 have an aux input? If so, where is it?

Hi there,

Kenwood utilize the CD Changer plug in the back (which acts as a secondary Aux input), to operate external iPod devices.

This is done with the aid of an Adapter Lead - it has the 13-pin DIN plug on one end (plugs into the rear of your unit), and an iPod plug on the other end (plugs into your iPod).

Depending on the "Generation" of your external iPod device, you will need to buy the appropriate Kenwood adapter cable. These are: KCA-IP102, KCA-IP202 or KCA-IP302.

There may be some aftermarket (3rd party) cables that may do the same job.

Just ensure you read your Kenwood manual, as the Kenwood unit may be limited to the types of files (i.e. formats) it can read & play.

Hope this explains....

I purchased a Kenwood KDC- MP345U and my Ipod touch version 4.0.2 used to work fine in the stereo. Now it only reads and then gives me an IPOD error. I have tried other Ipod products and they work fine. I...

i had a similar issue only mine read the song title and everything but just gave no sound. i called up kenwood and the solution for me was take the ipod (5th gen nano) turn it on, flip the hold switch on then off, then press and hold both the menu and center button of the scroll wheel until the apple logo showed up and release them. wait for it to go back to the menu and plug it in. fixed my problem. they said it was something w/ the ipod not connecting properly or something. hope this helps a bit

I have a kenwood KDC-MP438U stereo. Ipod error.

Hi If anything the stereo was probably designed and tested using a certain version of the Iphones software, now that version 4 has been released the way the IPhone communicates may have changed.

As a result the stereo is no longer able to talk to the phone and vice versa. your probably best off contacting Kenwood direct to see if they are aware of this problem and if there is anything that can be done about it.

Usb signal error on kdc x-991

I had the same problem. Unfortunately with the IPOD Unless you can give it extra USB power, it is unfortunately not enuff from the Kenwood's deck. I had ran a 100gb HDD in an enclosure...I thought great its working...worked fine for.....20-25 mins....
And started getting the USB Read Error...or something to that extent...I forget now. So I tried about 2 or 3 different enclosure that did not need extra power (or should not need extra power to run the drive, and no luck. So anyway I went to fry's and picked up a USB to Cigarette adapter and now all is well...The adapter cost me $10...
I have 3 external drives that now work. The only other thing that you might look at for the IPOD, is getting a cable that has 3 heads....

One going to the USB Port on the Kenwood, and then there's two more heads that split off the other tip one for the ipod and then it y's off to another usb, plug that into the USB power adapter from fry's and that might give you the extra power you need...( I can't guarantee this as I dont own an IPOD and probably never will unless someone gives me one for free.)

Yup...if you use an alternative power source for the usb appears to work fine now. I have (bought from fry's electronics) an adapter now that plugs into my cig lighter and haven't had any trouble anymore.

Usb kdc-x890 IPOD

The 890 doesn't support iPod control via USB. You can only read plain data storage devices on the USB port, such as a flash drive or portable hard drive. When you plug the iPod in (to a PC or the 890), it doesn't show up as a plain file storage device. Some of the newer Kenwoods do offer direct iPod control via USB. These ones have more "smarts" and are able to properly talk to the iPod and access its music. For the older models, you'll need to buy the special iPod interface, which accesses the iPod like a CD changer.
