Kenwood kdc-248u. Installing into a 01 mitsubishi galant. Using a wiring harness adapter to plug into the factory harness. The wires on the radio pig tail have a label of P.CONT, ANT CONT, and MUTE. Not sure what wires those **** connect to on the factory harness. Can anyone tell me? The colors for the P.CONT are blue/white, ANT CONT is solid blue, MUTE is kinda like a light brown or tan.

From the installation instructions: Ant Cont - Motor antenna control wire (Not used) P. Cont - Power control wire - To the power control terminal when using the optional power amplifier or to the antenna control terminal in the vehicle. Mute - Mute control wire - To the terminal that is grounded when either the telephone rings or during conversation (this would be to the telephone that is purchased separately.

Different or additional harness needed to install a Kenwood kdc 255u radio/cd player in a 2005 Scion XB?


Hi there,

YES.... to prevent cutting of any factory wiring (this use to be the old install method and requires much more time and expense) and potential electrical fires, you can now buy quite cheaply, what is called a Radio adapter harness.

As you wish to install a Kenwood radio to your Toyota Scion, simply buy an adapter loom which has a 2005 Toyota Plug on one end, with a Kenwood plug on the other (this essentially replaces the wiring loom that came with your Kenwood unit).

So, it's that easy .... Plug and Play.

And... if you sell your Toyota and wish to put your old Toyota radio back in, the original radio just plugs back in. PRESTO !


Hope this helps..

Cheers,

Scott

How do I install KDC-MP146 ( kenwood mp3/cd tuner) personally?


depends on the car, but id say go buy the wiring harness adapter from best buy or radio shack for your particular car. wire it onto your stereo then plug it directly into the old radio harness in your dash.its really not that hard unless you have a newer car with factory gps, or whatever.

I do not know how to wire nenwood kdc-422 to a 94 buick century?


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:

Wiring diagram


My fault meant this as a solution post....

What do you need the diagram for? If your installing the radio, you do not need a diagram you need to go purchase the wiring harness for your make and model and year car. Match the colored wires together to the ones on the back of the head unit then connect them, then that harness plugs into your stock car harness that your stock radio unplugged from. You also probly need an antenna adapter cable that just connects to your stock antenna cable to add length and then plugs into your aftermarket radio. If you need a wiring diagram because you are trying to open you radio and fix it because it is broke or something...good luck to ya. Hope I helped... :)

Kenwood kdc-415s


if there is no amplifier separate from the radio - the blue /white wire from the back of the radio goes to the solid blue wire on the harness attached to the car's plug. the orange wire is not supported by the kenwood radio, so make sure you tape it well- if your not using a separate amp also tape up the blue/white wire coming off the harness you have coming out of the harness to the car. if this helps you please give me a good rating- if not please e-mail me at Merle840@aol.com respectfully M.
