XDM6825 Not Playing MP3s in Stereo

I recently got and installed a Dual XDM6825 In-Dash Reciever. Everything went OK with the install, but when I try and play an MP3 CD, sound usually only comes out of the left side. Occasionally, it will come out of both sides, but I haven't figured out what causes it to start working properly. I verified that the CDs I made did in fact contain stereo MP3s. I also know that the wiring is good because whenever it is in Tuner or Aux mode, it comes out of all the speakers. Thanks in Advance, Mike

    Sorry, I forgot to add that the problem occurs whenever any kind of CD is played, not just MP3 CDs

Cd reciever how to install

There is one wire that connects to your ignition switch so the main stereo turns off when you turn your car off. If the radio still plays after you have turn your car off then you have your stereo directly feeding off the battery.

Installed my dual xdm6825 into a 1998 honda passport. NO POWER. everything looks like it is connected the right way but still have no power. the only way power comes on is if both 12v (red and yellow)...

I suspect you may have a blown fuse. Either the red or yellow wire from your dash board should have power (+12 DC volts or greater) all the time relative to chassis ground, which should be the black wire. Use a voltmeter to measure this. The other wire (red or yellow) should only have power (+12 DC volts or greater) when the car is turned on or the key is turned to the Aux position. Use the voltmeter to measure this also. If one of these wires doesn't measure correctly you most likely have a blown a fuse. I think the Honda Passport has 2 fuse boxes. If you open the driver's door I believe you will see a panel for one fuse box on the left side of the dashboard. I believe the other fuse box is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment. Fuse boxes sometimes have a labeled diagram on their cover or you may be able to find a diagram in your owner's manual. Look for fuses labeled radio or dash. You should be able to easily pull them out with a pair of needle nose pliers. If you look carefully at them you can usually tell if they're blown because the wire inside will look broken. Replace any burnt out fuses with new fuses rated at the same current value. The current rating of the fuse is usually written on the outside and it will generally be a number like 10, 15, or 20. Most of the time the fuses are color coded by current rating. You can buy new fuses at any auto parts store, or if you're lucky there will be a few spare fuses inside the fuse box. I hope this advice helps you out.

New radio installed - now dash lights don't work

Most factory stereos are wired to the dash dimmer switch. Usually if the dash lights go out after an after market stereo installation, it is because the wire that originally went to the factory stereo is not used for after market stereos. Double check the fuses and ensure the wire that controlled the lights on the factory stereo is not grounding out on something.

Cassette Tape Deck Problem

Unit may have worn belts that are slipping. All cassette player belts are subject to deterioration even if recently installed. You may try ordering the belts yourself and have a service tech install them. The tech that installed belts 9 months ago may have used used belts. Although dishonest, it is common.

Security Code for Protect mode

Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!
