Question about Car Audio & Video

I have a kenwood radio cd player in my car and I'm not satisfied by the fact I can only turn it on when the ignition key is in contact. How can I modify the wiring to use it no matter of having the ignition key turned ?

Kenwood KDC-319 CD Player Logo Problem with KDC-319 CD Player installed a kenwood kdc 319 in a 04 chevy malibu when i have car off i turn deck on an my cars dash board lights turn on Posted by A


I would start by disconnecting the radio and hooking it up right,the power should go through the ignition switch.So that when you turn the car off the radio will go off and to hear it on again you have to turn the key to accessory or start it.That might take care of a few of your problems.

My Pioneer DEH-P4200UB Won't power up in my 97 mustang gt. The car recently had a kenwood deck that we took out. we are still using the kenwoods wires. Help us lol


Hi

Please verify voltage at the constant (Yellow) wire With the ignition OFF
Then Turn the Key to ACC and verify voltage on the RED wire.
Double check the ground to chassis metal.

The radio should power on at this point if both power wires show 10-14.4VDC
If not - your radio needs repair.

Thanks!

What is the wiring diagram on a kenwood cd player? i unhooked stock stereo in 93 pontiac sunbird cut all the wiring and cant figure the wires out on cd player


Scroll down to page 15 on this link i gave you. If you removed the factory stereo, don't throw away the connector that plugs in to the back of the factory radio. Go to wal mart or any car audio install shop and buy yourself the wiring harness for your particular model car and year, it will definitely save you a headache due to the fact that some car wiring systems are wired differently and are somewhat complicated at times. http://manual.kenwood.com/files/B64-3691-00_00.pdf

I have a 1985 chevy monte carlo and I have ran a wire from my fuse box for a constant n my cd player will not keep memory and my memory is fine on the cd player.iv had several cd players in this car and...


You must have tied into an Accessory fuse and not a constant. Typically Cd player/radios etc will need both an Accessory tap as well as a constant tap.

Test the voltage on the wire and if it's constant you will have 12VDC without the key in the ignition You will also need a tap where there is 12VDC ONLY when the key is in ACC mode (or ignition on)

I do not have specific details on your CD Player but consult the manual on adding both of these connections,

I hope this helps

I am having trouble getting power to my new cd player. I have the orange battery wire hooked up, and also the ground wire is hooked up, and there is a red wire on the cd player that is a Ignition wire....


2 wires for power- one that is ALWAYS connected (remembers time, preset stations, etc.), and the other one you hook up to your ignition circuit (allows your radio to come on only when the key has been turned to ACC or RUN).

When you have wired this correctly, your radio will only come on when the ignition key is in ACC or RUN, and will ALSO remember the preset radio stations and the time, etc., when the key is turned off then back on again.

If you look at your fusebox, look for an ACC (accessory) junction that you can tap into. Also, don't forget that it's important to put a fuse in any wire you connect to a 12v+ source; don't rely on the fuse you are tapping into.

Hope this helps.

My kenwood will not save any tuner stations or eq stuff??


check your "constant power" (battery power) lead with a meter and make sure it's got 12v dc power with the key "out" of the ignition. If there's no power check the vehicles fuse and the radio fuse. Hope this helps

Stop kenwood KDC-mp239 loosing radio settings with ignition off


You have two power leads bringing battery power into the radio. One is switched off when the ignition is off and the other power lead is always on. That second one is the one you may have wired wrong. You need to check that one out to make sure it stays on when the key is turned off. Good luck.
