This is the part number for the only ribbon cable that has micro switches on it:


You can find it on ebay at this url:

Please give me a "fixya" if it helps you.
Those micro switches detect how far the display moves in and out.

All of those type of ribbon cables also have the part number on them. Look at the part of the cable that overlaps the connector that it plugs into. That way you can be sure this is the right cable.

I have fixed many of these type of radios and have not seen the micro switches brake on that cable. They have a very thin piece that gets pushed in, it could be mistaken for a broken switch.

The most common ribbon cable that goes bad on these radios are the one that connects the 2 displays together. It has a metal connector jack on it and the part number is J84-0154-05

Hope this helps

    Almost forgot, ther is also another common problem with this type of radio.

    The micro switch that is next to the gears that move the display in and out wil sometimes be out of postion or more accuratly, the lever that depresses the switch will get worn a little and not press the switch in completely. This can be fixed by carefully unsoldering the switch and moving it closer to the lever by about 1/16 of an inch and resoldering it into place. or you can order the lever and replace it, but you need to be able to re-align the gear that moves the lever properly or it will open too soon or too late.

    If this is the problem, it will turn on and open, then close back up and turn off very quickly.

    I can give you more information if you need it. Just coment on the post.

Power problem with my KDC-M7024

The part number for that cable is


This other cable going from the other display to the main board should also be replaced at the same time.


You can verify the part number by looking right on the cable, it is on the very end of the cable on the part that overlaps the connector the cable plugs into.

Only places i know that sell them are authorized kenwood servie centers. There should be one in your area.

please give me a "fixya" if this helps.

Control panel will not open when pressed in lower left corner

There are a few problems with these units including the flexible pcb's and also the detector micro switches and also the plastic gears getting sheared, I suggest you bring it back to where you had it repaired as it seems they haven't fixed it properly yet.

Kenwood MP925 cant get to work

The ribbon cable to the face plate needs replaced. It's an easy fix and any shop that does car audio repairs will likely have them in stock (mine does). Every shop has their own rates but my shop charges around $65-75 to fix that problem. Call around and ask. The bad part is: J84-0153-05 FLEX-RIBBON CABLE FROM FACE TO MAIN PCB

Kenwood kdc-322 faceplate problem?

I found my Kenwood KDC322 faceplate doing the same thing(cutting out) I cleaned the contact points on this 'ribbon' behind the faceplate by rubbing the discoloration off with a pencil eraser. The lights have not cut out again.

Some flip face stereos use a tiny micro switch to tell the onboard computer when the face is down or up and sometimes it uses the same switch for both positions sensing. It could be this switch is not working properly (dirty contacts, broken, bad wire, mis-aligned, etc.) and that is causing the problem. Good luck.

TOC Error

I had the same problem with my KDC-M7024 CD player. All I done was put a cleaning disc into the player and let it play for 2-3minutes. The disc has a small cleaning brush on it which spins around like a normal CD would and as the bristles pass over the laser it removes any dust.After that it worked fine but i still have to run the disc through every 3-4 months or the problem persists.
