My radio/ 6 disc CD player.

Both. Check the power line that is supposed to power the clock and memory circuits when you turn off the ignition.

And your player has lost the ability of the laser to focus on the disc - hence the error message.

Kenwood Kdc-mp425 will not switch to Aux. Aux cable is connected to the back of the headunit, but no aux option is available on menu for either my ipod touch or my sirius unit. I've accessed the menu from...

Apparently, this auxiliary input only works for a Kenwood CD changer or a sirius radio connection. At least that is my conclusion after finding the same problem. Let me know if you figured anything out on this.

firstly you should remove the power from the unit for a few seconds to reset it. if this doesn't fix it you can remove the top lid and you will see the motor that rotates the fascia, if you unplug the flexible cable that powers the motor and put 6volts on the motor contacts till the fascia rotates and then plug the flexible cable back put the fascia back on and plug the power lead back on to the radio
