Installing kenwood 3026

Hi All

I am installing the above stereo and when I insert a cd, the unit flashes on and off and does not play anything, like the unit is resetting.

I am also having a terrible time sorting out the speaker wires, I am installing in a Mitsubishi Starwagon and the speaker wires are not colour coded.

any help would be appreciated

    Thanks for the answer craig,



    Do you know why I would be getting the cd problem?



    The radio works just fine, however when I insert a cd the whole unit flashes in a reset kinda mode.



    Cheers

If it the speaker wire`s you need to find out, just take a AA battery touch the +\- on the speaker wires if it makes a scratching sound threw the speakers its the right wire

i hope this answers your question

I am having problems with my 2008 4runner stereo (it's factory) it changes over to CD when I hit a bump when I'm playing through AUX or the radio. It's really annoying. I don't have a CD inserted either....


Well the unit is almost 10 years old. I had a similar problem and went to Wal-Mart and saw a Kenwood unit for about $80 that would easily replace my factory Hyundai unit. The thing is as far back as the 80's I used to wire these directly into my car(s). Nowadays you buy the stereo / CD unit and a plug harness kit ($20) for the vehicle harness to the car stereo, and figure out how to mount it in your car. You can look it up on YouTube and follow the video on installation. Best of luck to you my friend.

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.

How i can attach mp3 or memory card with my kenwood player


Hi.

If the Kenwood is compatible with USB memory adapter, then you will have an USB port on the front side of the player, just aside the CD slot.

If the stereo is MP3 compatible, that does not mean that the unit is compatible with USB devices.
If the Kenwood is MP3 but not USB compatible, you can play MP3 files burning them onto a CD, then playing the MP3 CD in the CD player.

Regards.

I need to install a kenwood cd player into my 2001 ford explorer step by step


goto the auto parts store and purchase a pair of stereo keys, fascia adaptor and wiring harness (you may need to get fascia and harness from a car audio store or circuit city.)
Then use the stereo keys to remove the factory stereo. Push them into the small holes on the front of the stereo push them slightly outwards and pull to release the stereo. Unplug all the connectors from back keeping track of where they fall.
Insert wiring harness into the stock wiring
attach fascia in regards to its packaged instructions.
Place cage from new stereo into the hole in the dash using the tabs on cage to secure it,
Attach stereo to other end of new harness along with aerial (may need adaptor for this also depending on the new head unit.)
Insert stereo into new cage and voila nice new stereo.
