If you havent already checked...disconnect the battery. then hook the stereo up. then finally check the fuses in the fuse panel and distribution box.

Swapped red and yellow wires on my JVC KD-R200, then swapped them back. Now it only powers on when I push the Eject button. Otherwise, nothing


Swapping the red and yellow wires cannot possibly have any affect on the radio. Both wires need to see 12 volts for proper operation. If they are reversed, it would only simply fail to save the memory settings. You have other issues. You have probably lost power on the red wire.

Hi , i forget miss my kenwood kdc-w6027 security code. radio number ke1035s0503815 thanks for help...


The whole point of a security code is to be secure. if you could just post on a public website and get the code by return it would, by definition, be insecure and totally useless.

First, check all the the vehicle paperwork as the code is often printed on a card or written in the service book.

If that fails then you must contact Kenwood with proof of ownership, in some territories they charge a fee. If you can't prove ownership then the head unit becomes a spare parts donor.

You will find advertisers on auction websites and similar offering to sell codes, but you pay your money before you find out whether the code works. When you complain you'll then find out whether they honour their pre-sale promises of a refund. When you complain to PayPal you'll find that non-tangible goods aren't covered. In short, you take a big risk on being scammed.

After a battery malfunction, my CDX-GT11W unit is totally dead... The fuse seems to be fine & I trying to see if my head unit could be dead or if another issue could exist.


Have you check the fuse to the constant and the fuse for the accessory (usually separately fused)... you can also check the back of the radio, on that model i believe there is a fuse built in under/behind the harness... Hope this helps!

To stop the memory loss you need to swap the red and yellow wires around. (battery power and ignition power).

To stop the date loss, you need to cut the electrical ariel/remote blue wire.
