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.

Kenwood kdc-138, NO SOUND, CD PLAYER NO RESPONDING


First thing you need to do is make sure you dont have a short in the speaker wires.. if any one of them touches ground it kills the system.. then you have to remove all the wires and start over... disconnect the battery... remove all the speaker wires only and then turn it on and reset it... then again remove the battery from the car and install them all make sure nothing is touching then turn it back on and see if that works.. you can also test to make sure you speaker wires are good by using a 9v battery and touching positive and negative of each speaker to the positive and neg of the battery... JUST FOR A SECOND it will pop.. that means your wires are good and no shorted to that speaker.

My reciever plays then cuts out


They don't overload from missing speakers. I'm curious, what buggered the one speaker?

Examine all of your speaker wires carefully to be sure no unintended contact is made between them and anything else.

Is "overload" being displayed?

“OVERLOAD” starts flashing on the display.

Speakers are overloaded because of high volume.

1. Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn off the receiver.
2. Stop the playback source.
3. Turn on the receiver again, and adjust the volume.
----------------
Speakers are overloaded because of short circuit of speaker terminals.

Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel, then check the speaker wiring.

If “OVERLOAD” does not disappear after turning on the receiver again, unplug the AC power cord, then plug it back in again.
If speaker wiring is not short-circuited, contact your dealer.

Not sure what wires go from the head unit go into the car


Blue with white stripe is usually a remote, you probably wont need it. Im not sure about the Brown or plain Blue.

Overload Problem


If your rec'vr worked with the original front and rear speakers, the new speakers are either defective or ar the wrong impedance.
Also, I find this confusing: "I connected the wiring for 1 of the front speakers to the connection on the rear of the receiver". This may indicate wrong wiring connection. Make sure you have connected the speakers properly

My Kenwood 800watt amplifier


Sounds like you have overloaded your amp. When you bridge you MUST make sure that you still have the proper speaker load. One 4 ohm speaker on one channel is fine, but when you bridge that same 4 ohm speaker, it gives you a 2 ohm load on each of the two channels that are now bridged. If you made the mistake of wiring two 4 ohm speakers in parallel (plus to plus and minus to minus) then when you bridge you will be driving a one ohm load on each channel. This is very close to a dead short. Stop using your amp at once until you get your speaker load correct. This will damage your amp and it will cause you to have to go to a repair shop to fix it. DO NOT RUN YOUR AMP ANYMORE UNTIL YOU FIX THIS. Good luck.

No sound from speakers


In most recivers or amps yes if there is a short in one channel all the amps go into shutdown or into the protect mode. Now if you know how an amp works then you should be able with a schematic to find out what amp is causing the over load simply by see in the schematic where the speaker output is on the curcuit and then measure for a DC B+ . Thats the amp you would disconnect to conferm that all the others were ok as an output on an amp curcuit shouldnt have more then .3 to .8 volts dc unless its unbalanced.. Seek a pro to assit you if you dont have the equipment to test the amp and for sure get a service manual or schematic diagram. Good Luck

Shutting itself down


Its usually not a fault that you will see unless somethings burnt up. This is solid state electronics and you dont see this stuff go bad. But in the meantime try disconnecting the speakers and see if it still goes into shutdown and at the same time have a dc multimeter attached to the speaker outputs. If the unit comes on and you dont see any DC at all or very very little B+ on both speaker terminal sets then you may have a defective speaker. If you do see dc then thats why the protections comming on so you dont blow out your speakers. If you dont have any equipment or dont have any electronics experience I would then take the unit to a repair person for an estimate. Good Luck
