I have a mex-bt31pw and not getting any sound everything powers on correctly this is the first radio I have ever had problem with please help


Well my guess would be your speakers are powered by an amplifier instead of your stereo meaning you need rcas from the back of your deck to the amplifier If that's not the case then maybe you didn't connect the wiring harness properly or you have something inside your stereo set to mute

How to install a Kenwood kdc 138 in a 1992 Ford Escort LX?


if its anything like my 92 ranger you take the dash apart around the radio and the stereo should unscrew, in my ranger the new cd player went in without any extra harness as it was the same size as the stock, if not you can but harnesses to go where your old stereo did, to connect the speakers you can buy a ford wiring harness from walmart or any store with an audio department. these plug in to your vehicles wiring harness so you don't have to cut it out, after that you simply match colours from the wires of the new cd player to the wiring harness

Amp Power light will not go on. Protection light is lit- Thump sound in speakers


It probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following page.

Radio comes on but i cant hear any music


You may be connecting this stereo into an amplified system. If the original factory stereo worked with the factory amplifier, your stereo is not turning the amplifier on. If you purchased the aftermarket wire harness that mates to the factory stereo connector, hook up the "Amplifier Trigger" wire, this wire is usually blue.

Kenwood KDC-138 Operation Problem


Here's the quote from the manual regarding "dcer": "The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle and then the protection function is activated. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. If the "PROTECT/DCER" code does not disappear, consult your nearest service center "

I believe the manual can be downloaded from crutchfield .com after you go to the Kenwood KDC-138 page on their website. The reset button is either on the lower left of the face or, removing the face, on the lower left of the body. Hope this helps you.

Subwoofer blew up my car stereo


You didn't mention an amplifier. Did you try to connect your subwoofers directly to your head unit? If so, that is why you no longer have a working head unit, unfortunately. You have to have an external amplifier to drive those subwoofer, not 22 watts per channel from an in dash stereo. You're correct in your assessment that putting the subs in again would cause the same thing. Find a reputable shop that can sell you and properly install the equipment you need to get you up and running again. Sorry for your loss.

Problem with legacy amp


I would check the RCA preamp wires connecting the stereo to the amp. If these are loose or broken, it could cause you to lose your sound.

Does the amp show signs of life, such as clicking on, an LED turns on, or anything like that?

Has anything else changed between the time it worked and didn't work?
