Adding MP3 Input to Kenwood R/C

I own a ’95 Mitsubishi Pajero fitted with a Kenwood GKR-X55 Radio Cassette and a separate Kenwood single CD player unit. I would like to add a MP3 input lead. The CD player is not working so I could use the CD input to the R/C. Please advise the best way for me to accomplish this. Thanks for your help.

    Hi, there are no RCA or 3.5mm plugs visible on the back of the unit. Yes its just a portable MP3 I want to connect. There is a Din connector on a lead which is not connected to anything but I have no wiring info so don't know if this can be used.

    I can't seem to find a manual online for the GKR-X55, so I don't know how the single CD player connects. Can you give me details on the connection between them? Are they RCA plugs? 3.5mm plug? Are you looking to connect just a standard portable MP3 player?

To be honest, I can't find one spec of info on that stereo on the internet. It's possible the DIN connection you see is for controlling a CD changer. If so, it's possible you can use either this cable or this cable to turn it into an AUX input. But without a manual or anything, it's hard to know for sure. You have to contact Kenwood.

I have a Kenwood RX370 in a 2001 Honda Fit. I'm trying to put in AUX mode!


Hi,if the input jack isn't in the radio face, your unit probably isn't aux equipped. The only input would be in the back of the deck, which would require you remove the unit and look for the aux input there. Hope that helps.

Different or additional harness needed to install a Kenwood kdc 255u radio/cd player in a 2005 Scion XB?


Hi there,

YES.... to prevent cutting of any factory wiring (this use to be the old install method and requires much more time and expense) and potential electrical fires, you can now buy quite cheaply, what is called a Radio adapter harness.

As you wish to install a Kenwood radio to your Toyota Scion, simply buy an adapter loom which has a 2005 Toyota Plug on one end, with a Kenwood plug on the other (this essentially replaces the wiring loom that came with your Kenwood unit).

So, it's that easy .... Plug and Play.

And... if you sell your Toyota and wish to put your old Toyota radio back in, the original radio just plugs back in. PRESTO !


Hope this helps..

Cheers,

Scott

Cassette adapter and MP3 not working


Usually a dirty tape head. I recommend adding a 3.5 jack to your radio through an fm modulator.
