Firstly, the main wires from the KDC-128 you need to check are:
RED - this should be connected to the vehicle's +12v IGNITION wire. YELLOW - this should be connected to the vehicle's =12v BATTERY wire. EARTH - i) some tuners will only earth when the tuner itself, is screwed into the vehicle's chassis (i.e. a metal mounting bracket); ii) some tuners require the BLACK wire to be attached to the vehicle's chassis (i.e. a metal mounting bracket).
Secondly, if the above wires are connected correctly, then you should suspect the fuse on rear of the tuner has blown (even if it LOOKS ok). Replace and see what happens.
Thirdly, if all above are ok, then you have a short somewhere on the vehicle.
what are you driving.... some radios are iso-mount and dash pieces may need to taken off... if its using the can, check the box it came with. there are 4" thin metal keys that slide down each side of the head unit to unlock the tabs.
are you talking about a dash kit to mount radio into the dash of your truck
or the metal cage that goes around the radio to mount into a dash kit ...
what model truck do you have i can check my supplier for kits for truck
I have a 2008 Sonata with satellite radio issues also. Everytime it rains and I have to do any traveling in it, the storage box located in the trunk floods and shorts out the receiver,LIKE OVER THE WEEKEND!!. This will be the fourth replacement and they (Dealership)still cannot fix the problem.
Check the wiring diagram for that radio and you will probably find that the wire that is disconnected is the memory wire. the memory wire keeps the memory chip activated when the power to the radio is off so your settings are retained.
Well, I finally just broke down, went out and purchased a brand new am/fm/cassette player. These type stereo decks are kind of scarce now -a-days. It was reasonably priced and hope it will last longer than the old Phase Linear PCR4500.
Thanks for sharing and caring.
P.S. The new rig is a completely different name manufacturer.
today's in-dash cd players are a 2 part mounting system. One part is the carrier chassis that is hard mounted to the dash. Then the cd player slides into part 1 and latches. To remove player from part 1, insert 2 long and narrow metal tools along each side to un-latch the player. The tools come with a new unit. To make these, try making them out of 1/16 inch thick metal and trimming to following dimensions: 6 inches long by 1/2 inch wide and at one end, narrow down to about 1/8 inch about 1 inch from the end. deburr all edges. This 2 part system is designed for anti-theft defense.
