    Thanks for the reply. Ive checked the ribbon cables and they look good. I thick ive found the problem. The front motorized panel is belt driven from a motor through a series of gears. Ive found a gear that is shredded and bent, looks like it over heated. Is there anywhere i can get a "Motor module" or gears for the kenwood KDCW9027. Thanks again

Maybe the flexible ribbon cable between the face plate and the unit itself is broken and needs to be replaced. check partstore.com for part if you can do the repair.

    I had a similar stereo in my Jaguar, but I never had issues with it. I had it for only three years though.

    I found a place here in US where they sell Kenwood parts, I assume that you are in UK, judging by the model number of the stereo. There is a list for your stereo(KDC-W9027), but there are so many parts, that is almost impossible to locate that yourself. I would contact them and ask them what you need.

I had the same problem and I resoldered the resistors on the board inside the stereo and it worked. Unscrew and remove the top cover and the CD slot. There are 10 of them located on the lower right side of the board. Good luck.

not sure if standby mode, or completely turned off (to turn it off just click the SRC mode a few seconds)

Which wire is my amp power wire on a kenwood kdc-x617


hey mate,

You will need to run independent power and ground wires for the amp, then run your RCA leads from your headunit to your amp, the trigger wire to turn your amp on and off with the headunit is the pink and black wire in the kenwood wiring harness...

Hope this helps

Brad:)

Kenwood KDC-BT838U -- Low audio on incoming phone calls only.


Patrick -
I have the reverse problem.  Callers can hardly hear me. I saw a setting in the headunit that allows you to specify where the audio plays for incoming calls.  You can choose the Left Front Speaker, the Right Front Speaker or Both.  Check the manual and make sure its set to both.
Regards, Charlie

Kenwood head unit CD and AUX sound not working


I fixed the sound problem with tech support from Kenwood. I had the blue wire from the Kenwood which is the antennae turn on wired to the amp turn on for the vehicle (2001 Blazer with Bose factory stereo). This is how I was told to wire it from the installation tech where I purchased the wiring harness. The tuning played fine because the Bose amp turned on when I played the tuner but when I played the cd or aux the amp turned off, thus no sound. The kenwood tech toldd me to wire the blue/white wire to the amp turn on for the vehicle so the amp would be on when ever power to the Kenwood was on. I rewired this way and everything works great now.

The home position switch from the angle of the front display is not pushed correctly. the problem is mechanical.
If you glue a little tip of plastic between the actuator and the homeposition switch, your problem is history.
In my case, a tip of a little tiewrap did it.
