If you have a DC power supply that is rated at 5 to 10 amps you will have no problem. You just connect it like you would in a car, but instead of a battery, you have a power supply for the red, yellow and black wires. The red and yellow go to the positive terminal and the black to negative. Then you connect the speakers to the speakers wires making sure that 1 speaker goes to the "white" and the "white with black stripe" wires, and that another speaker to the "grey" and the "grey with black stripe" wires, those are the front speaker outputs of a Kenwood. The Green set and the violet set are the rear speaker wires which you can just not use if you don't have 4 speakers. Just make sure that each wire is insulated from anything so they don't short out the radio. Now find an old car antenna with the wire and jack still attached and plug it into the antenna jack.

The only problem is when you turn off the power supply, you lose the preset stations and the clock settings.

I hope this helps you, and if so a good rating would be appreciated. It is the only reward we get for offering this free help.

Thanks,

Dave

Location of radio fuse in fuse box for 64 falcon and voltage


Just check all fuses.
Also note that many stereos also have a fuse in the back of the unit or inline with the stereo's wiring on the back of the unit. So if you find no blown fuses in the fuse box, then pull out the stereo and check there.

Missing wire 4 from manual....whats the name of wire


just had the same problem-it does not come with the stereo or even the DTV1 box, it only comes with the NAV1 unit. Luckily I found a local stereo shop that sold me one out of ther NAV1 box since I only bought the DTV1 box with the stereo and I needed it. So hopefully you will have teh same luck , either that or you will have to buy it directly from Power Acoustik.

Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa!

If you are suspecting that the radio, car lighter fuse is busted. You need to check the fuse box under the dashboard. Check the fuse box diagram found on the cover of the fuse box under that dash. Check if you see "Lighter, Radio" Find the fuse and use the fuse puller to pull out the fuse.

You can find the fuse puller inside the fuse box. I hope this helps.

Have a nice day.

My garage door doesn't open


BE SURE THE EYES ARE AIMED PROPERLY.

IF THEY ARE POINTED AT EACH OTHER AND THE LIGHTS DON'T WORK YOU MAY HAVE PULLED A WIRE LOOSE - CHECK THE CONNECTIONS.

IF LIGHTS ARE ON AND IT STILL WON'T WORK, UNPLUG THE UNIT WAIT ABOUT 5 MIN. PLUG IT BACK IN & TRY AGAIN.

HOPE THIS HELPS

My unit does not turn on anymore


If no power at all then check the vehicle fuse box for a blown fuse. If all are well, there may be an inline fuse which would require pulling the stereo out and checking a fuse that is inserted in the wire just before the stereo. Another place may be a fuse that is plugged or screwed in to the actual stereo. Hope you find the problem. Good luck.

Stereo works on assessory switch but cuts off when start car


you will have to separate the red and yellow wires. they cannot run together. the red should be connected to the fuse box. there is a slot labeled batt on your fuse box under the dash. there is also an auxiliary wire in the stereo slot used by you factory set. use this for the yellow wire connection.
