Question about Kenwood KDC-2011S CD Player

1 Answer

Cd player I dont have another red live wire or i just dont see it. i just replaced my sony for this one my sony worked fine then i hooked this one up and nothing. The only problem with the sony was it did not have a remote wire for my amp so i ran the remote wire to the yellow wire it was on all the time until i hooked up a toggle switch. but now the yellow wire seems to not be working. I'll try hooking the amp up again to the yellow wire to see if that turns on the amp i could have a bad harness. Now the remote wire ( blue and white ) dont work either for my amp maybe this radio is trash anymore help would be greatful

The yellow wire goes to + (hot) 12 volt constant, red wire goes to ignition switch, Hook up your amp together with the red wire
(switched) and the amp will come on with the ignition switch.
Blue and white wire is for the power antenna.

My boyfriend hooked up my speakers in my car to my cdx-gt200, now my cd player wont even come on. He never touched any of the connection wires for the player. At first he could not find the remote turn on...


change the fuse behind the system.
"so he hooked it up to the left front speaker wire, then found the remote turn on wire and hooked it up to it." will have burned the sound system or not. remove the new installation, test it, reinstall, test again.

My sony cd player will turn on but wont play sound?


reset the unit. (use the reset button if it has one or remove all power to it) check the power to any amps you have hooked up and check for short circuited speaker wires (the - wire touching the + wire) all these things will cause you to have no sound.. if that dont work have the unit looked at at a audio shop it might need replaced

CD player wont come on was doing weird things


You have your accessory wire (red wire) and remote ran together and the yellow (constant wire ran separately in the dash?

You need the red wire to so you can use accessory and to turn off your cd player when your vehicle turns off.

You need the yellow wire to keep all your settings stored. base/treble/time clock

Just a little clarification. Your amp turns on with the remote wire (blue) wire, if that is not hooked up you will get no power to the amp.

Here's the in-dash diagram to your vehicle at the bottom of this pdf.

You want to focus on N,O, and P

Do you happen to have an after market wiring harness? These can be bought from walmart for your vehicle. You just take the male end connect the colors together and plug end that goes to your cd player into the female end. Very easy to do.

You could also have one of these fuses out under your hood, that might cause you to lose power to everything.

Sony cdxm610


Red- Constant Power -
Yellow - Ignition power - 12v
Black - Ground
Blue - Ant & memory
Orange - Dimmer


All the wires that have 2 of the same color are speaker wires
ex - green, and green with stripe. The one with a stripe is the Negitive

In most cases the red and yellow need to be together to get the cd player to start if you dont have 2 hook ups for both constant and ignition powers.

The black ground can go to any bolt that is screwed into a metal grounded object. The blue and orange are not needed unless you have a harness that supports the dimmer and memory feature.
If you cd player works with this but wont keep settings or time, hook up the blue to the power so it can constantly save your settings.

All the speaker wires a total of 4 diffrent sets of 2 can go anywhere as long as you dont want to fade or bal your speakers if so you need to test them by hooking up 1 speaker at a time to find out where it leads to. GOOD LUCK

And

Thank you for your question

Kenwood KDC-MP202 sound turns off when headlights are turned on


just solved a similar problem on my car i bought a Cd/dvd player for my 2000 concord lxi i hooked it up and hooked a rear-view camera and it worked perfect but wen i turned the headlights on the cd player shuts of so i disconnected the orenge wire that came out of my cd player from the orange on the aftermarket harness then grounded the ping wire (rear con wire) it worked fine but i couldn't see any footage from the camera for that i bought a long red power wire and hooked it to the red camera power wire that hooked from camera to reverse light and took the other end of the new wire i bought and hooked it to the orange wire that came out of the cd player now every thing works fine. you probably dont have the right power to run both cd and head lights thats why you need constant power to run both just hook up an extra wire between a positive wire to the orange dimmer wire its simple;

ground to ground (black)
12+ positive to 12+ positive (red)
and an extra wire (usually a red 18 guage wire bought mine at walmart) to the dimmer wire from the back of the cd player (orange) edit.gif

you need to remove the radio and swap the red wire for the yellow wire and vice versa, they have bullet connectors to allow you to do this, basically the permanent live and the ignition live are the wrong way round.
