    Hi, my problem is similar. I have the KDC 1016 unit wired up and operational, however, each time I turn the ignition off I lose all the settings on the unit (Radio stations, time, etc).



    I have the red and yellow wires from the unit wired to the power (red wire) from the ignition, is that correct?



    Cheers.

I cant figure out which is the memory wire for the kenwood kdc-mp4028 or where to connect it, please help?


The memory wire is yellow. To hook it up you need to take it to a power supply that is always hot like straight to the battery. You can get the manual on the link below page 28 will tell you how to wire it.

I cant figure out one of the wires on my kenwood car stereo


Hi, red = ingnition power black = ground yellow = constant +12v blue = remote. There should be 8 wires bunched 4 colours & 4 same colours with white stripes. These you will have to experiment with your cars wiring. This is just a eneral rule for most stereo wiring.
Hope it helps.

Install


Hi,

Assuming that Kenwood KDC-135 is fully operational then your only concern would be matching the Kenwood wires to the Camry's wiring.

Most Toyota Camry uses the below wiring scheme. I have taken the liberty of including the corresponding Kenwood wires.

Hope that this be of some help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
