Hi, this picture resembles the harness(connecting plug) looking in from the back of the harness. The red wire goes into the A+ point. the black wire goes into the Gnd point. The yellow wire goes into the B+ point. if you not sure how to read this picture please ask the help of an installer. Cheers.

No sound.

The first thing you need to do is doublechecking all the new wirings, it sounds like a contact.

Kenwood kdc-415s

if there is no amplifier separate from the radio - the blue /white wire from the back of the radio goes to the solid blue wire on the harness attached to the car's plug. the orange wire is not supported by the kenwood radio, so make sure you tape it well- if your not using a separate amp also tape up the blue/white wire coming off the harness you have coming out of the harness to the car. if this helps you please give me a good rating- if not please e-mail me at [email protected] respectfully M.
