KDC-215S battery drain

Have a KDC-215S install in in my Jeep. When the ignition is off, the unit will drain the battery in about 2-3days. Everything is fine when I disconnect the yellow +12v line that provides the constant power. Why does this consume so much power when supposedly is off?

You could add a switch to control the power going to the head unit. I have seen this done in many different vehicles where the head unit drains the battery, even when supposedly off.

INSTALLING A CD RECEIVER IN MY CAR


Some decks only give one pair of pre outs. Most 4 channel amps can use just a 2 channel input and feed the other 2 channels by the flip of an input selection switch. I recomend a 4 channel amp if you want to power front and rear speakers and be able to set the gains to blend properly, or you can run all 4 speakers at a 2 ohm stereo on 2 channels and run a sub on the remaining r channels. It just depends on how you want the setup to be nd to how much control you want. Let me know.

Radio issues


The tuner secton has defective components. It is servicable by an experienced tech who is familiar with the model and has the setup to troubleshoot and service it.

Considering the cost of service compared to replacement, I would think it would be best to replace the unit rather than invest in to servicing it.
