Question about Kenwood Car Audio & Video

3 Answers

I have a KDC 316S unit in my 1992 Eagle Talon. When the unit gets hot, which could be from the car just sitting in the sun, the radio receiver stops working and just emits white noise. Once the unti cools down, it will beging to work again. Only the radio receiver is affected. The CD playback works fine. Would a new face plate solve this (unlikely) or is the receiver part of the fixed in-dash installation?

    Although some capacitors could be involved in this, it would seem that, unless the capacitors are specific to the operation of the radio receiver, this wouldn't be it. This is most likely something in the RF frontend/conversion to base-band. At this point that whatever the problem is, I'm assuming that it is not likely to be caused be something in the removable faceplate(?question here). If I run the AC in the car long enough, eventually the radio will begin to work again.

    Changing the plate should not solve the problem, as this will only affect the controls and the security chipset, in your case the problem is located on the mainboard, inside the stereo.
    Probably there is a defective chipset or even just a burnt capacitor in the tuner area of the board.

Unless you have a bad engine temp sender this should happen until the engine reaches the programed temperature.if it causes battery failure than you darn sure need to replace the sender

I have a 1992 eagle talon tsi im trying to hook up stereo


there is a "remote" wire that turns it on-sounds like you hooked it up to your lights. It needs to be hooked-up to the ignition so your radio turns off and on with the engine. Your power wire can go to the battery if you absolutely can't figure out which 1 it is that old radio used, but the remote wire must be hooked up right to turn it off so you don't leave it on and run the battery down.
