    The cable on the car stereo is a usb cable that the ipod usb plugs into.

    I have the manual and I'm using the right ipod that should work with the unit. It displays the songs that are playing on the ipod, but no sound. I do have sound on the tuner.

Kenwood car stereo (DX503) reads Ipod information, but suddenly there is no volume (song name's and artist stream as usual, but there is no sound)


Check your connection from Ipod and the car stereo it might lose or borrow connector wire or bluetooth ( if your using it ) to check the apparatus if its work or check it to the other car stereo with the same model. Check the format requirements of the ipod and car stereo. If this can read Mp3 or Mp4 or any format as it was before. Is your radio and cd player have sound when you play it. If not your Amplifier is not working.

2ooo Ford Mustang,Got MP538U TUNER work. cd look like it was playin no sound though.Exchanged it for MP638u.SAME BULL. cAR GOT ripped out mach system. Carstereo wires without harness


Hi,

If you are wiring a Kenwood KDC-MP638U to a 2000 Ford Mustang, then below information may be of help:
  • to my knowledge, the original stereo unit uses 2 8pin connector and a single 7 pin connector;
  • if the connector with the harness has been cut, then wire splicing may have to be used based below;

  • If you are using external amplifiers, then it is possible to trigger/switch them with the blue/white wire and their RCA INputs connected to the appropriate RCA OUTputs of the Kenwood;

  • Additionally, the KDC-MP638U has built-in USB port/interface.
  • Incidentally, if what was previously installed is a full Mach system, pls be informed that there are seven (7) versions from Mach 1000.0 to Mach 1000.7, which one was installed?
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I just bought a Kenwood KDC-MP439 and the box says made for ipod........ But i dunno how to use the feature...... Help!!!!!


This particular model is advertised as being "made for iPod," but this claim is a bit misleading. Most decks advertised this way mean "iPod ready," but require you to purchase an additional accessory to use that functionality.

In the case of the KDC-MP439, you can use your iPod with the deck by connecting the iPod to the AUX connection on the right side of the faceplate. Making this connection will require you to purchase a cord with 3.5mm male audio connectors on both ends (it's the same connector on your headphones that plugs into the iPod's headphone jack, only you'll need one with that connector on both ends of the cord).

If you'd like to take advantage of the wireless Bluetooth functionality of the iPod, you will need an iPod Touch (2G, 3G, or 4G versions) and the Kenwood accessory KCA-BT100. This component adds hands-free Bluetooth functionality to your stereo. You can find this module at many locations in a range of prices. For example, eBay has them for prices as low as $39.99 (may be a minimum bid for an auction-type listing; be sure to check the listing type if you go this route). Online retailers seem to vary between $99.99 and $150 or so. These will include a manual that should provide instructions for pairing your iPod with the stereo unit.

If you find this information helpful, please remember to give this solution a positive rating!

I have had a kenwood 50wx4 stereo head unit installed in my car for about a year now and have had no problems using any function on the system. However, i recently updated the software on my ipod to newer...


I am having the exact same problem with my iPhone 3GS and the 50wx4. I upgraded to a new software version and am getting the same messages. It's very frustrating. I read on the apple forum that if you turn the iPod/iPhone off by holding down the top buttton and home button at the same time, and then plug it into your car stereo whilst still off then the 2 devices will reconfigure (the iPod should come on when you plug it into the stereo). This did not work for me but did work for some others in the forum, worth a try.

I have a Kenwood kdc mp828. I disconnected my battery cable and now can not remember my security code. I need to reset the unit so I can again listen to my stereo.


I read a blog on your site about Kenwood stereo's. I used that information to unlock my stereo security code. Albiet, I did have to figure out a bit of the code needed myself. I am again able to listen to music on my stereo.
