Question about Kenwood KDC-MP235 CD Player

1 Answer

Is my CD player fried?

I took it out of my Rodeo today and attempted to hook it up in my maxima. about halfway through i realized that i had the wrong wiring diagram so i figured out which wires were for the power and connected them, reconnected my battery, and started the car, but the CD player doesn't come on at all. The fuse looks fine, so I am confused as to what might have happened to cause it to completely stop working.

Possibly (but highly unlikely) fried speakers. Try them on a different radio. If they work, you're radio is fried.

have you pulled the radio out yet? if not there should be either one in the back of the radio near the plug or an inline fuse on the wires coming into the ISO socket at the rear.

ck to make sure the radio itself is not pinching any wires wiggle the wiring harness around .. a blown fuse is a direct short but also try this disconect one marker lite at a time you could have one bad marker lite causing the problem it could be just a coincidense with the radio installation

Sounds like the lens of the laser needs to be cleaned and easiest way is to buy a cd player cleaner but you can take the player apart and clean that lens with a Qtip and some rubbing alcohol.
