What you need is the SCC1 (Sirius tuner) and the KCA-SR50 (Kenwood adapter). The ESN number can be found on bottom of SCC1 before you install it.

I am replacing a very old Toshiba cassette/radio and it has only one wire (+) going to the speakers. How does that work? I am trying to install another radio that doesn't work this way.


Hello sir, hi most likely the one wire is the live audio out, you are missing the ground line, the missing wire maybe connected to ground already, just like in car wiring where the other line is the body. if not check your speaker connections, they should have a "+" and a "-" sign terminal. to complete a speaker connection it should have two terminals. No speaker would work with only 1 terminal.

I have a pioneer DEH 525-W car sterio harness and colors do not match to that of the Saturn L2 1999. How do I connect this car sterio?


Just go to Best Buy and buy the Saturn L2 1999 Harness . then it will match. Harness cost like 20 bucks.
1st STEP
Things to get from BEST BUYor RADIO SHACK.
1. Black electrical tape
2. (Optional) for quality connection Solder & Solder gun
3. GM (General Motors) Antenna Adapters
4. GM 1999 Car Harness
5. GM Saturn L2 1999 Car Kit

STEP 2 = Match the colors of the car harness you just bought to the harness of the radio (DONT PLUG IT INTO THE CAR YET CAUSE YOU MAY SHORT OUT THE POWER WIRE TO GROUND) twist the same color wires together and then tape them so it wont be exposed to get shorted out and damage your radio or blow fuses in the car.

STEP 3= plug in the complete harness to the radio and the car and also plug in the Antenna adapter to the small antenna jack of the car that converts it to a larger jack so you can plug it in the back of the new pioneer radio that has a larger antenna hole. Now test the radio it should work unless you had blown your radio fuse in the car already which is easy to replace.

STEP 4 Unplug everything from the radio and install your CAR KIT. Then slide your radio sleeve in the rectangular hole all the way flush and use a flat head screw driver and bend the tabs of the sleeve(Radio Cage) so that the sleeve wont move.

STEP 5 make sure your harness & antenna is sticking out of the sleeve so you dont have to fish it out later when you have finished mounting the car kit to your car. Put your car dash back together and you will see only a rectangular hole with a harness and antenna adapter sticking out only.

STEP 6 plug in the harness and antenna back into the radio and slide it in halfway only and test the radio again making sure everything works. If it does then move it all the way in till it locks into place. last snap in the face trim ring into place to cover the silver cage lining.

THERE YOU ARE FINISHED

I want to connect my ipod to the aux inputs on back of unit


Hello gcd_sun,

The RCA jacks on the back of the Pioneer DEH-1500 are preamp outputs, not inputs. They are to connect an external amplifier for additional speakers or subwoofers.

The output from your iPod is probably "bleeding over" into the receiver detector stage. When the antenna is disconnected, the signal passes into the amp by itself. Connecting the antenna provides enough signal so that both are amplified.

To connect the iPod, you need to purchase a wireless iPod adapter, or a new head unit that includes an "AUX" input or a dedicated adapter for the iPod.

Hope this helps.

If antenna is not connected will it turn on


The unit should power up without an antenna. If it powers up then you would only get hash noise on the speakers. You can put a paper clip with a 12" piece of wire to the input or where the ant should go to see if you are getting a signal.
If you have power at the unit then you may have a bad ground (-).

CDX-SW200 plays the stereo but not the CD's


sounds like you connected the amp turn on lead to the power antenna wire coming from the deck, so the amp turns on when you have the radio on, but turns off when playing cds. you need to connect the amp turn on lead to the amp remote wire.

Trying to install after factory radio in 94 Honda accord ex and can't get any sound


I have a 93 accord ex with the bose amp system. Had a Sony deck put in it. It had the popping and the noises. It was installed at a store and they had to hook the red power wire to the antenna wire to get the sound to come out of the system when playing a CD. I thought that was bogus to have the antenna up all the time so I took it back out and put another quick hookup harness in it and it did the same thing. Will not put out any sound till the red power wire is hooked up to the antenna wire so that it goes up when the key is turned on. Installed the same stereo in a 94 taurus SHO with amp and it worked great. I believe that there is an expensive kit that converts the bose system to hook up a unit so that it doesn't pop click buzz, and have to have the antenna up to play.

Antenna Power supply


First order of business is to check and see if the antenna is operating properly. If the wire in your harness is intended to power the antenna, connect 12 volts to this lead, and the antenna should go up (this needs to be done with the key in the ON or ACCY position). If the antenna does not go up, check the fusebox for a blown fuse. If the antenna does indeed go up, then you can scratch that off the list of possible problems and move on to the next step.

The Clarion should have a power input wire to keep the clock alive, and a power wire (normally of heavier guage) to actually power the radio. Make sure the radio operates when the key is in the ON or ACCY position. If the radio is operating, so far so good.

I'm kind of confused when you say there are two wires on the clarion... "power antenna turn-on" and "auto antenna". Are these both on the clarion? There should be a wire that constantly feeds the antenna with power (I would cal this one auto antenna). It should always be powered to 12 volts. The antenna should operate when the "antenna turn on" lead becomes 12 volts. Normally this ONLY happens when the clarion RADIO is on (ie: if you're listening to a CD, the antenna probably won't get activated).

After checking all this, if you're still having problems and if you haven't already done so, grab a DC volt meter and verify that the clarion power antenna turn on lead goes to 12 volts when you turn on the radio. If it does not, then there is an internal problem within the radio. If this lead IS going to 12 volts when it is supposed to and the antenna still isn't working, then my guess is that the antenna is malfunctioning.

Let me know what you find out... I'll keep looking at stuff from this end. Good luck.
