What is the model # of the Fujitsu Ten Car Stereo. Do you still play cassettes? This would seem to be the reason for wanting to restore the unit - that and nostalgia. Once you have the model number you must do a search like;
Fujitsu Ten A230 harness plug. Also try Best Buy because they do a lot of car stereo installations. I just put my own unit in my Hyundai Tucson and bought my wiring kit from them; however you're going back to the 90's. I have another answer too, so let me know if this works.

Kenwood may be able to give you the code via the serial number. You may be able to enter it with a combination of the switches. It may also have a "default code" Kenwood may want to see a bill of sale...not sure.

I am very surprised that it could draw 23 amps and not trip the breaker, but I suspect it is actually running on low voltage. If it is on a breaker by itself check the plug and the switch to make sure they are in good condition. If it is sharing a neutral, that would probably be a dishwasher or another plug nearby. Make sure the neutral connections are pigtailed and not just connected by being on the same plug. Also you must be sure that if it shares a neutral with another plug, those two hot circuits cannot be on the same phase in your electrical panel, they need to be on opposite phases.

what is that for nav or music? they don't have batteries in dvd players in cars. the remotes have them. if the player is not working you may try a dvd head cleaner. if it is the nav unit then get a dvd head cleaner with the cleaning parts out at the edge of the disc as the nav unit looks on the edge for information before it starts reading the rest of the disc. if it is a dvd player they search all over looking for anything to start playing. good luck.

Bose systems were not created with aftermarket head units in mind. Normally people perform a Bose-ectomy on those systems, removing ALL Bose components meaning Speakers too. Personally I prefer Pioneer, JBL, or Alpine speakers.

it appears to to be the disc you have sitting in the player, not the ipod.

It says here as well

Perhaps the read head needs cleaning. some disassembly may be needed if a cleaning disk does not work.

I think the factory used one wiring harness for all the radio's, on a low cost radio you just plugged in the connectors needed for the radio setup in the vehicle and the rest of the connectors are just laid aside. You can't just buy a radio harness, you buy the entire wiring harness for the cab, in any event check this out on the harness and see if the connectors are their.

You may have to remove the unit and disassemble it to remove the CD that evidently is jammed inside. If your unit has a removable magazine that holds the CDs, the magazine probably is stuck.

make sure your rca are not up against any heavy metal or pinched by something. cheap rca cables have no type of insulations coating and when up against metal will cause interference. mine did the same thing when I ran it up against the seat belt bracket... pull it out from where you have it routed from but leave it all hooked up and see if it still MAKING the same noise if it goes away then try reroute or get better rca and make sure no pinched wire hope this helps .... always go with good rca cables

Maybe you need to check your satellite antenna?? You said your GPS is working good? See if your GPS has a tool to check satellite connectivity and verify this. I find mine fails when I drive in a tunnel or are under covers of various kinds like a metal garage. Most GPSs have a tool to check on each satellite signal strength..

I suggest you ensure the ground is made to a sensible ground point and the supplies are also good and the antenna is also properly grounded and then monitor the supply voltage and the current consumed by the radio until it begins to distort. If the voltage and current remain steady the fault is either local interference or inside the radio, probably in the tuner.

If the current climbs and the voltage remains steady the fault is likely in the audio section...

Optical disc players are some of the least durable devices on the electronics market. If your 12-year-old hardware only recently failed, you are lucky. There is no easy fix other than replacement.
