The only thing ive seen that would cause this problem would be
a:a dead short on the wire
b:speakers are connected wrong, ie: + to - or - to +
if neither of these is the issue check your speakers to be shure they are not blown and shorted on the inside.
if they are fine then try returning the unit its probably defective

I have a kenwood kdc bt43u and transferred it, with my amp and rear speakers, to an identical vehicle. It all works fine until i use bluetooth. sound only comes from the front factory fitted speakers


Not quite sure what you are saying here but I am going to take a stab. If I am filling in the gaps but are the rear speakers wireless? If this is the case then they are not paired with the speakers but with your receiver deck. You will need to pair the speakers as well before it will play through them.

I do not know how to wire nenwood kdc-422 to a 94 buick century?


You should have a wire harness pigtail that comes with your kenwood.
you can also purchase a harness adapter plug/pigtail at most audio auto stereo shops to fit your car make and model.
Be sure to save the packaging because the plastic bag has the color/codes for the harness. This harness is designed to plug right into the factory plug inside the dash just like the stock radios do.
All you need to do is splice the kenwood cables to the adapter plug pigtail you purchase for your car.
match up each wire as described here:

Kenwood deck reads protect and won't function


you have one of your speaker wires shorted out to the body of the car somewhere, or the speakers that you installed are bad. That is the only two reasons it will go into protect. Correct the problem, then reset the deck - it should work fine.
Kenwood builds this feature in to protect the outputs - so they dont burn up in the case of shorted speakers or wiring.

Stereo wiring chart


If you go to anyplace that installs car stereos you can purchase an installation harness that will connect directly to your factory harness in your car. That way you would only need to wire your Kenwood harness to the instllation harness and that is just a matter of matching colors from the Kenwood harness to the installation harness. All you need to do after that is plug it in.

The wiring on the Kenwood harness is as follows:

yellow = constant 12 volts
red = ingnition (12 volts when key is turned on)
black = ground
white = front left speaker positive
white w/black stripe = front left speaker negative
grey = front right speaker positive
grey w/black stripe = front right speaker negative
green = rear left speaker positive
green w/black stripe = rear left speaker negative
purple = rear right speaker positive
purple w/blackk stripe = rear right speaker negative
blue = power antenna
blue w/white stripe = remote amp turn on
brown = phone
orange w/white stripe = illumination
