Is there something new that was installed or modified in your car recently, even if it's not related to electronics? (even trailer hitches, running board, etc)

Have you checked if there was a ground leak at each speakers?

Are you using an amplifier other than the one in your kenwood reciever?

Yes you need to check your antenna if the tuning has not shifted. there could be an insulation fault if the antenna have a faulty cord within. the present models come with a fixed antennae and so the problem is limited. Look behind the set to see if the jack to the antenna input is loose. You can connect another one to confirm this , if so change with an original replacement as there are many spurious low quality ones. I am sure you will get more years of use. Good day.

Everything was fine on and off the expressway. Two days ago while driving around town I noticed the tranny wasn't freewheeling. Instead it seemed to be slowing down like a gear reduction. It would up shift...

well i think that the slowing down on the transmission is correct under construction and use of a motor vehicle regulations ,free wheeling isnt allowed least of all with auto transmission .I do know that cars from the 50s had a freewheel device fitted but these were discontinued in the 60s because they were deemed dangerous.Too be totally honest i would need to see the vehicle to pass judgement but i would be inclined to give two possible causes without seeing the vehicle and one would be the flex plate on the back of the torque converter and the other would be the front clutch .If the flex plate has gone you would have heard a noise but if the front clutch has gone then you wouldnt hear a lot but just lose drive and reverse because all the engine output goes through the clutch .You would need to remove the gearbox and strip it to find the problem ,so whatever way its an expensive repair .just for a thought can you get scrappage in your country against a new vehicle ?? might be cheaper in the long run because auto repairs here in spain are a complete box from dealer only ever seen one repair shop advertise in malaga and the price?? now you know why in europe its mainly manuals and autos are another whole lot of money on top of the new car price ,along with diesels .Best secondhand cars for holding their prices here are diesel renaults /peugeots voltswagon and not forgetting mercs but it must be a diesel merc ,and manual

Hi.. DO you have a chrysler product? if so make sure you have the blue factory amp wire hooked up.. In any case i would get a little known good speaker(even a house stereo bookshelf speaker is fine) and test at least one pair of speaker wires for sound output right at the back of the radio. If you do not have sound output and your deck works fine otherwise then 99 times out of 100 the internal amplifier ic or "chip" is bad. I have replaced several of them. Phe part is not hard to find if you know where to look. It does require total dissassembley of the deck and yo uhave to be very skilled with a soldering iron and desoldering braid- but it can be repaired!.... le tme know if you decide to try to repair it an di will do my best to wank you through it..

No power to the cd receiver.

There is a fuse both in the back of the deck...and in your fuse panel... Refer to your service manual for the car to find the correct fuse for the audion system. and Refer to your service manual for your deck to see what im talking about...all the fuses Ive seen just plug into the back of the deck.
