Boat battery 12 volt drains down in few days. I hooked up volt meter in line positive wire to circuit to elec lift, it shows just under 1 volt steady with switch in off position, could this be the drain on battery, how do I determine if it is the switch or short in wire

1 - isolate the swithc completely
2 - remove the +ve terminal from battery
3 - conduct continuity check between +ve & -ve lines from on any lines possible.

A short is unlikely, as this would either blow a fuse, or cause you a fire.

It does sound like you have something that is draining power constantly, or you have something that has risen in resistance (water environment can cause verdigris and bridging to occur) this is not enough to power the given unit, but certainly enough to drain a battery.

Using without parking break


Hi James,

Page 27 of the installation manual (http://www.wwstereo.com/_files/155788/documents/Kenwood--Manual.pdf) shows a connection to the parking brake light circuit. It is the Light Green wire labeled "PRK SW" shown below.

507e8abd-cbd0-4811-9c76-ad8a0f498b77.jpg


If it is connected the way it is drawn, the PRK SW wire is connected between the lamp and the switch that opens and closes depending on the position of the parking brake (set or not). 12 volts is always present from the battery to the top of the lamp. It passes thru the filament to the wire that goes the top of the parking brake switch. So, when the brake is OFF or disengaged, the lamp is off and 12 volts is present on the PRK SW wire to your Kenwood GPS. When you set the parking brake, the ground (symbol is the funny slanted lines under a horizontal line) just under the brake switch passes through the switch and changes voltage at the PRK SW to "ground" or 0 volts. When this happens, the ground on one side of the lamp with 12 volts on the other side of the lamp - make is turn on.

So, what does this mean? Simply tie the PRK SW wire to any grounded metal and the Kenwood will think the parking brake is always set - for as long as it is tied to ground. You can check it with a simple voltmeter to be sure. Set the meter to 12 volts or more, touch black lead to ground & the red lead to the PRK SW wire. Kenwood should only work when at 0 volts (brake set). Release the brake - meter shows 12 volts & the Kenwood shuts off.

I hope this helps & Good luck!

Ouku single din no sound from rca cables


Sorry I did not use the video out RCA cables. My audio RCA cables worked fine... I ran them to my JBL amplifier through a conversion adapter. I did not run it direct to the amp.. I used Metra TYTO-01 03-08 Toyota Vehicles Harness for JBL SYS (Ebay item 160560648718) and it worked great.

Here is the wiring color coding that I found online:

What does the yellow and black wire that says battery go to?


yellow goes to a 12 volt power source that never goes off no matter what position you have the key in. Black wire is ground and that can be tied into the frame of the car or another ground wire, you can find out what all wires do by using a test light. Clip one end to a clean ground and pone a wire, if it's +12 volt, it'll light up. Turn the key to find out what the wire is and once you find one that stays on no matter what, you have found the 12 volt batter wire that yellow goes to and if you can't find one there, you're going to have to run a small wire from the battery to the radio ( the radio should have an inline fuse, if not, put one on it if you have to wire it to the battery directly). To fine a ground wire you must first find a 12 volt+ wire, clip one end to the + wire and start poking other wires to find a ground wire. (you only need to know this for older care that nobody makes a wiring kit for.) Some places sell plugs that convert factory wire harnesses to after market configuration and that all you'd do is color match the wires. I hope this helps!

My deck keeps on resetting every time I turn on my car


its not wired correctly,the yellow wire is the all time 12 volts wire,it must always have 12 volts to hold the memory like the clock etc.take the yellow wire and hook it up straight to the battery and then see if it holds the settings,if that fixes it you can leave it on the battery ,it wont hurt anything,most likely somebody wired it with the red and yellow tied together,not right,it wont hurt the radio but it wont keep the settings,good luck,give me 4 thumbs up if it fixes your problem,thanks

How can i test my alpine cva-1005 head unit


You can bench test it by hooking up powers and ground to a battery (12 volt) and use a speaker to one set of speaker wires at a time. Even a 12 volt cordless drill battery will work. Should only take a few minutes. You just won't get reception to radio stations without an antennae.

I connect all cable a no turn on I dont not what


Check the fuse, check if the ground wire is properly tight if you have a volt meter should be better to find if there is voltage at the stereo wires. Red 12 volts only when you put the car key at the on position and Yellow wire 12 volts at any time without even the car key.

Where does the parking brake wire hook up in order to bi-pass this option on alpine iva-c800 car audio system


based on my previous experience with the Alpine Mobile Multimedia Station, 1 wire needs to see 12 volts ie. brake light wire, the other needs to see ground ie. parking brake.

You can hook up the wire that needs 12 volts to either ignition or some other 12 volt source. The other wire needs to be connected to a toggle switch to ground. Then flip the switch as needed to simulate the parking brake and voila...

How to test unit without hooking up to vehicle.


You can connect the + and - from the stereo to a 12 volt DC power supply, or a step down transformer to test out the functionality.

This one is 20.00 bucks at Radio Shack.8f95084.jpg

Best of Luck.
