SOURCE: I was given a Kenwood KDC-1011S. All wires labled

Yellow is for constant 12v. (Power directly from battery) so it maintains preset stations and clock memory. Red is for Key "on" 12v Power (turns on when ignition key is on) Black is for Chasis Ground. What type of vehicle is it going in? I can get you the corresponding vehicle color as well. Post a comment with make/model & year vehicle. Hope this helps.

My Kenwood KDC-U453 cd receiver displays "PROTECT" on connection and nothing works - any solutions appreciated!!!!


Pull the radio out, tape off all wires but yellow, red and black. Twist red/ yellow together and attach to positive 12 volt, attach black wire to negative 12 volts. Turn on radio and see if it comes out of protect mode. If it does, you will have to troubleshoot all of the speaker wires to find a short.

I do not know how to wire nenwood kdc-422 to a 94 buick century?


You should have a wire harness pigtail that comes with your kenwood.
you can also purchase a harness adapter plug/pigtail at most audio auto stereo shops to fit your car make and model.
Be sure to save the packaging because the plastic bag has the color/codes for the harness. This harness is designed to plug right into the factory plug inside the dash just like the stock radios do.
All you need to do is splice the kenwood cables to the adapter plug pigtail you purchase for your car.
match up each wire as described here:

I have a kenwood kdc 139 and there is no bass at all, the bass only kicks in when i change the balance to fully left or fully right.


Check your wires to make sure they're not crossed. follow them all the way back to the radio if you have to. when it comes to subs, you have to get it right with how you connect your possitive and negative especially coming out of the amp. if you have rca's connected from the radio to the amp, then check the output to your subs from the amp to the subs, make sure theyre wired correctly. if you used your stereo wires for input to your amp, then make sure those wires are positive with positive and negative with negative. also make sure you have them hooked up to rear output only. don't use one rear and one front.

Wiring problems?


http://inform3.kenwoodusa.com/manuals/kdcmp238.pdf

There are no illumination wires on this deck, so the Orange and orange/wht are not used on the wiring harness. Orange wire is NOT for memory. Yellow wire is +12VDC Constant for memory.

If you hooked up the 12Vdc to the orange wire, your fuse for your dashlights have blown. Check your cars fuse panel for a blown fuse.

The orange wires are sending a signal out to radios with illumination circuts. You just sent a 12VDC signal upstream and it collided with the Cars signal and blew the fuse.

Tape off the orange wires, and all will be fine after changing the fuse.
