Kenwood stereo Won't turn on

I have a 4 year old Kenwood Deck Which i had installed in another Nissan. I pulled it out (With harness) & started installing it in a 1997 Nissan Altima. I ran new speaker wires to 4 pioneer speakers. I hooked up the red wire from the Harness directly to the battery, Grounded the ground wire. And my Unit doesn't turn on. As part of the harness, it also has the yellow (Mem) wire, A blue&White wire & a solid blue wire. The Yellow,Blue/white & Blue wires have not been connected (Due to not knowing which wire they hook up to on the wires from the car (in the dash). So i'm guessing that might be the problem. Does Anybody have any suggestions??

Other than take it to a shop..haha

    The wiring harness that came with the receiver does not have a solid blue wire that goes to a power antenna (sonyCDX-GT710HD) What do I have to do to have the antenna power turned on when the stereo come on ?

Just bought vehicle, kenwood KDC 722 stereo wont work till enter 4 digit security code.... ANY suggestions??


You have to go to a Kenwood car audio dealer in your area. They will pull the unit and get the serial # off the deck, call Kenwood and get you the code. If you pull it yourself you can save a little $... If you don't have the manual, go to www.kenwoodusa.com type in your model # under support and you can download install manual as well as user manual for free. Depending on the vehicle, it could be very quick or take an hour or so to pull the unit, it all depends on the mount. Hope this helps

Speakers not working


are their speakers in the rear as well. does your car have a total of 6 speakers? if so, the new deck can only run 4 of them, thats why the middle speakers dont work.

Aftermarket Stereo connection


hi there
if you matched all the wires from the harness to the kenwood deck and its not working don't worry you just missed the last step........(all wires attached that a colour coded connected)
simply turn your car on.........now on the front of the kenwood deck there is a SOURCE button with all units it could be a (S, SRC, Power) hold the source button down till your kenwood unit powers up ..........if your unit still doesn't work check the fuse on back of kenwood unit should be a 10a fuse (blue) if the fuse is fine put the unit back in dash..........now check the fuse panel on driver side dash with the door open you will see this panel pull it off (some describe the fuse panel as looking like an air vent but its not its a handle to open) now on the panel that you just pulled off there is a fuse diagram on the inside look at it find radio fuse it will be a (blue fuse) located in the top row of fuses check it if blown replace and unit should work.............if this doesn't solve the issue than its a (sneaky) fuse not to many people know about if you pop the hood of your car there is a black plastic panel located just below the battery pins and just above the driver head light (usually black box with yellow writing on it......in this there are mini fuses check all of them do not touch the black relays in there just the small tiny fuses the fuse you will look at should be yellow 20a (this fuse is closest to engine and comes after the abs relay if you look inside the lid you took off it will have fuse locations cant remember which one it is for sure but check them..........now see if your kenwood unit powers up if not the last option is to ground to the black wire from back of kenwood unit to metal frame.............this last part is also done if your unit does power on but your car lights don't work if this happens ground the kenwood unit to the frame of car and open up fuse panel on driver side dash replace the blown fuse for lights or radio (make sure the kenwood unit is grounded to the frame before replacing the fuse in dash panel............if this doesnt help you than i would assume the kenwood deck needs to be repaired by kenwood.......
good luck
hope i was able to help and sorry this list is so long
