Kenwood dnx 7100 shuts off sporadically

Hey I just installed the dnx 7100 into my 07 vw gti and i'm having problems with the deck shutting off sporadically. Now I know my 12v and ground connections are good because i heat shrinked all the wires with heat shrink butt connectors. have you heard this problem before? Is the deck faulty?

    I'm running the ground through the stock harness with the xsvi-9003 adapter. do you think I should run a different ground??

  • montedog1 Feb 07, 2008

    so I ran another ground but I did notice that the ACC Red wire is losing the signal. now I have the xsvi-9003 harness with the module and i hooked up my meter to the acc wire and it will lose power. Now the 15 supply is from the can-bus system is this a problem? Do I need to find a different 15 supply like the cigarette lighter??

You could just run the ground behind the deck, there is plenty of ground behind the radio. I really think you have a grounding issue though. Best of luck

If it is shutting off and coming right back on I would defintley take another look at your ground connection. This is the most likley cause for the sudden turn offs. Especially if it comes right back on.

Airbag Warning Light Reset Procedure:
The reason for this is that you turned your car on with the airbag warning light for the passenger located in the vent panel above the radio disconnected. To reset it. Turn your car off. without starting the car (foot off the brake) Turn the car to the "on" position. wait for the airbag light to blink. The SECOND it goes off before it comes back on and blinks you need to hit the button again and turn the car off. wait 2-3 seconds and repeat 3 times.

Factory controls interface?


Call these guys at hifiaudio.com and purchase the SWC module that matches your vehicle (ask for Scroche brand). Once you purchase the SWC module, make sure you read the installation instructions two or three times before you install it. Once installed, these SWC units work great. I just completed the installation on my 2008 F150 with the Kenwood DNX-7100 and my steering wheel interface works perfectly.

Usb drive


Another solution here....I have a Kenwood KDC-x991 deck.

Have USB Read error problems..
Anyway I had a 30gb hdd, replaced it with a 100gb (according to manual, will use up to 120gb w/out external power...)
Anyways long story short, the 100gb drive worked fine for....20-25 mins...
I was happy. Now here's the clincher. After 20-25 mins, it gave the USB read error. (instead of resetting the deck and have to make the date/time/eq/sound/setting changes I unplugged the USB drive...changed source from USB to tuner (or anything else for that matter). Then switched back to USB w/ no device installed and after 2 seconds or less, the USB Error disappeard and said no USB device connected....Anyway thats the best way (I've found) to get around the Resetting the deck. Anyway after that from then on I could not get the Hard drive to work for more than 30 seconds. It would play then give me the read error.

Tried a different drive...80gb same prob...went back to the 30, and it was fine.
Tried a 160 (I knew it wasn't going to work) and it didn't either.
Anyway was thinking what to do.....most of the USB external drives I had came with a power port on it aside from the USB port plug. Or the drives came with the Y Cable....
The long part plugs into the Kenwood deck, and then the END of that cable plugs into your USB external drive, and the small piece connects to a (get this...here we gooooo FTW) USB to Cigarette adapter!!!!!
And this worked like a charm on ALL my drives. Stable...and just plain worked great!
Anyway I hope that this will help you guys w/ your usb probs!

In order to access the DNX7100's bulit in SD card slot, you have to press the CD/DVD eject button for about 5 secs. It will fold down to reveal the SD slot. This slot is only used for Software and Map updates via a SD Card.
