I have had my car for 6 months now and it came with a Kenwood KDC-X659 MP3 player. It worked great 'til 2 weeks ago and it won't play at all! Any suggestions? I have changed the fuse but it still doesn't work.

Re: My KDC-X659 STOPPED PLAYING!
I think you need to have at least 11 volts or more on the yellow and the REd wires for it to turn on. Using a volt meter set on DC volts and at least a range of 20Volts, you can read the REd wire to the Black wire and see if you have at least 11 volts. Do the same for the yellow wire and reference to the black wire. you need at least 11 volts, Your car should be running about 13.6 volts across the battery.

If the Kenwood is compatible with USB memory adapter, then you will have an USB port on the front side of the player, just aside the CD slot.
If the stereo is MP3 compatible, that does not mean that the unit is compatible with USB devices. If the Kenwood is MP3 but not USB compatible, you can play MP3 files burning them onto a CD, then playing the MP3 CD in the CD player.
Hi Homer, sorry mate, unless you have a remote control, thatas the only way I know of to do it.I assume that you have read this.
Other way is to ask your friends if they have the same, or go to a car audio installer in your area, and check to see if they can help you out. I used to do this for people. And not charge them. You don't by chance live in Brisbane do you?
