All the functions seem to be working well on the radio , but all sound has quit coming out of the speakers. I checked the owners manual assuming that it was a blown fuse, but there is only one fuse for the radio and it is good. There is also a fuse in the amplifier slot and it is good, but where is the factory amp located on a Buick rendezvous , or am I overlooking some other possible problem?

Why you buy a harness that is factory matched from Best Buy. Could be the speakers were power amped from the factory stereo and the after market is not powering them. Would call Best Buy to confirm it.
Most likely a shorted speaker. Disconnect all speaker wires at the radio and try them one at a time. Be sure to have radio off when making connections. The speaker that causes the sound to shut off is the shorted one.
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: 1994 Buick Century Car Stereo Wiring Schematic

go to ebay and type in the model number of the unit and it will bring up some part that can fix the problem. i had the same problem and i just ordered the part. its actually a ribbon connector. im sure you just open up the radio and take the old one out and connect the new one up. this seems to be a common problem with this unit. the ribbon just starts to tear, and as it tears, you will start to lose functions on the stereo. i happen to like this stereo, so i decided to repair it. good luck with yours.
There is a wire included in the harness, which needs to be connected to a ground I think it was called "PARK" or something. Just turn on the radio with a dvd in it, while touching the excess wires to a ground. You'll quickly have it in hand.
This was done as a safety feature to ensure you're not driving while watching a DVD.
