Red is Positve = +
Black is negative = -
Yellow is the backup - If the backup is not connected, the radio station will lost it memory if ignition is turned off, and cd will start from no 1 and won't continue when it was last played. - Yellow must be connected to the Battery or positve wire which does not switch off if the inition is off

You would have to call Kenwood directly, and provide them with a valid proof of purchase. Once they have your information, they can provide you with the code.

Hi there,

Kenwood adapter looms are readily available from your local Auto Accessory store, of from Ebay.

These are a 'plug & play' solution (pre-wired), which eliminates the need to cut any of your existing vehicle's wiring.

Ideally, you want a single adapter loom with Kenwood plug on one end, with your vehicle's "factory" plug on the other (all common brands are available).

e.g. Kenwood ---> Ford; Kenwood ---> GM etc etc

Kenwood head units show "protect" when there's a problem with the speaker outputs. This might mean a shorted speaker wire, a blown speaker, or an internal defect in the head unit. Once the condition that's causing the "protect" mode is fixed, the CD player should be back in normal mode the next time you turn it on.

If it's staying in "protect", then you'll definitely have to remove the stereo and do some troubleshooting to fix it. Many car audio stores will do system troubleshooting, for a fee. If you want to do it yourself, here's what you need to do:

Pull the Kenwood unit from the dash and disconnect all the speaker wires. Turn it on and see if the "protect" message displays. If it does, the stereo has an internal defect and will need to be serviced. If it doesn't, then turn it off, and re-connect one speaker. Turn it on again and see if it displays "protect".

If it works with a single speaker connected, keep re-connecting the others until you identify the speaker that's causing the problem. There may be a wiring problem or defective speaker in that location.

If it displays "protect" with a single speaker connected, then disconnect that one and try a different one. If all the speakers cause a "protect" mode, then you're probably back to a defective head unit, unless your friend managed to blow all your speakers at once.

I would start by disconnecting the radio and hooking it up right,the power should go through the ignition switch.So that when you turn the car off the radio will go off and to hear it on again you have to turn the key to accessory or start it.That might take care of a few of your problems.
