Question about Kenwood Radio Communications

Open Question

Ok brand new Kenwood KDC-x994 deck. Followed wiring diagram. Hooked up my amps remote wire to the "blue/white power control wire" and the only power I get in that wire is when the head unit is cycled on and off, and its just for a split second, Second prob. Motor antenna control wire-blue does the same as the other wire, just a second of power. Is it a manufacturing prob? Or an oversight of my own. Thanks, Chuck 1988 Trans Am GTA

Use the Amp remote turn on wire, some units don't come with a antenna wire and as an installer we use the remote turn on instead.

Kenwood kdc-x592 No sound on CD and..


your amp turn on is hooked to the power antenna wire. Swap the blue wires and youll be good to go. Since the power antenna is not needed, when the radio goes off tuner, the 12V signal is turned off. and your amplifier will also then lose its remote turn on.
Reverse the 2 blue wires.

Audio Output problems


Currently you have the blue wire from your Kenwood head unit connected to the blue wire in the Chrysler wire harness adapter. You need to disconnect this wire, and reconnect it to the blue/white wire coming from your Kenwood head unit instead. You probably already have the remote wire from your subwoofer amp connected there; both wires need to be attached to the blue/white Kenwood remote output. Your LHS is equipped with a factory amp. The blue wire in the Chrysler harness activates the amplifier, but it's connected to your Kenwood's power antenna activation output; therefore it's only being turned on when the tuner is selected.

Kenwood kdc-mp528 amp/speaker problem???


This is a common mistake. This problem indicates that you are using the solid blue wire from the head unit to the remote turn-on on the amp. This is a power antenna wire that only receives power when on FM radio. You need to replace this with the Blue & White wire from the head unit (power control wire) to your remote turn-on on your amp. This should solve your issue.
