SOURCE: Kenwood Car music system Tel Mute problem

Hi,

To my knowledge, some Kenwood head units have a wire specifically for this purpose, to mute the stereo in the event of an incoming mobile call. This would be the brown wire. Normally when not connected to a mobile phone, this wire is shielded/covered. It it was inadvertently exposed and touches any metal part, then it would enable the muting. If the wire is covered and not grounding, then an internal fault exists and most likely the trigger inside where the brown wire leads to.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: kenwood kdc-w3041 protect mode

Hello ia737,

The "protect" display is probably being caused by a shorted or grounded (touching vehicle chassis or other ground) speaker wire. Check the speaker wires for bare spots, etc and insulate or replace as necessary.

You do not need to remove the fuses to force a "cold reset" of the W-3041. You can simply press the "reset" button on the front of the unit. It's the little recessed button at the lower left of the volume control. Use the straightened end of a paper clip or ballpoint pen to momentarily hold the button in.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a Kenwood KDC 135 car stereo wont un mute.

behind the face plate there is a little recessed reset button. push it using the tip of a pen or similar. that will fully reset the radio to like it was when you bought it.

Some times head units hicup. this is how you reset it. In most error cases this solves the problem.

How does the mute function work on the Kenwood KDC-5043U. Where do I connect the brown mute wire? I have a Samsung Galaxy S5


If you were installing a separate hands-free phone kit along with the Kenwood head unit, you'd connect the Kenwood mute wire to the muting output on the hands-free kit. This allows the other device to mute the audio from your radio while you're using the phone. If you don't have a hands-free kit, you wouldn't connect the Kenwood's mute wire to anything at all.

My kenwood kdc 136 works normal for ten minutes then stops and displays ;ocer


I had an issue like this took me months to fix it. I finally just put in a higher grade fuse in. I think it had a 10 and i put in a 15 worked after that but mine was not wired to the battery. I would say check your fuses and wires.

there is a wire on the harness (pink or brown i think) called cell phone mute. if this wire is touching power or ground or any other wires you will have these problems. make sure this wire is taped off and secured behind the dash.

If it was hooked up intentionaly it will mute your stereo anytime a call comes in on a cell phone.

Security Code for Protect mode


Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!

Check the TEL mute wire(brown) properly insulated if you havn't connected any cell phone. If this TEL mute wire touches car metal body, there may be a chance to display "CALL" on the display.

This is a wild guess but I would wager that the Bluetooth adapter is somehow being fooled into thinking you have an incoming cellular call 9the radio mutes when you get calls...). Now, the question is: What's causing it to trigger? To see if i'm correct, unplug the Bluetooth adapter and see if the problem goes away.
