I have a '06 Dodge Ram with the factory Infinity sound system. Since installing my new head unit about 1 out of 3 times that I get into my truck and start it, there is no sound coming from the truck speakers. I do have a sub in the rear that sound does come from, but none of the door or dash speakers have any sound. I can turn the unit off and then back on, but still no sound. The only way I can fix it is to turn the key off and back on. This is getting old. Any help on fixing this problem would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

First of all do you have a bluetooth kit for your head unit? if so ensure it is plugged in correctly. if it is, then you need to activate bluetooth on your phone and make it visible to other devices, once this is done search from the phone for the bluetooth on the head unit. It should read BT100 or similar. Once it has found it all you need to do is pair them normally using the code 1234.
While code request mode,point the remote control to the unit and enter this code 55222277or 552222777(depending the remote contro you are using)(try to press the numbers that faster you can) that is way you type KCAR from the remote control.
you will not see any change on the screen while you entering the number,only when you enter the last number the unit will go to standby mode.
if you make a mistake,reset the unit and start all over again.
Id call you local stereo shop. I changed the head unit out in my old acura legend and had the same problem. You need to buy a special harness for the bose. Each speaker had its own amp, so i just rip it off and wired the speaker direct and trashed the amps. Now this was an older car and speakers were almost shot so no biggie. I would not recommend you doing that on and 04. Just call your local stereo shop and they should hook you up.
hi rob there is no way u can pair ur keenwood to your phone. your still going to need a microphone so that your callers can hear you. i installed the same unit in my durango a year ago and had the same problem. the only thing to do is keep using the earpiece.
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.
The problem I had was with the remote control unit for the steering wheel controls. It shorted out. The head unit was fine. But, when the sterring control unit is shorted it also prevents the hand held remote from working.
