Question about Kenwood KDC-MP342U Car CD Player
If you can turn the unit ON/OFF and change stations using your faceplate, then the faceplate is OK.
The problem lies with the internal display resistors.

At times a radio can have voltage at the yellow (12v memory wire) and no voltage at the red (12v ignition wire) which turns the radio on and off. If this is the case you may have a blown fuse or if it is a data based system the factory radio turns on with data and not voltage. If you have a data system in your vehicle there will be no 12 ignition wire present. You will then have to use a data/can-bus interface (recommended) or run a wire to and ignition source (this method does not retain any factory data features or safety chimes)
