Installation Procedure
1. To prevent short circuits, remove the key from
the ignition and disconnect the - terminal of
the battery.
2. Make the proper input and output wire
connections for each unit.
3. Connect the wire on the wiring harness.
4. Take Connector B on the wiring harness and
connect it to the speaker connector in your
vehicle.
5. Take Connector A on the wiring harness and
connect it to the external power connector on
your vehicle.
6. Connect the wiring harness connector to the
unit.
7. Install the unit in your car.
8. Reconnect the - terminal of the battery.
9. Press the reset button.

o If the power is not turned ON (or it is ON, but will be OFF
immediately), the speaker wire may have a short-circuit
or touched the chasis of the vehicle and the protection
function may have been activated. Therefore, the speaker
wire should be checked.
o If your car is not prepared for this special connectionsystem, consult your Kenwood dealer.
o Only use antenna conversion adapters (ISO-JASO) when
the antenna cord has an ISO plug.
o Make sure that all wire connections are securely made by
inserting jacks until they lock completely.
o If your vehicle's ignition does not have an ACC position,
or if the ignition wire is connected to a power source
with constant voltage such as a battery wire, the power
will not be linked with the ignition (i.e., it will not turn on
and off along with the ignition). If you want to link the
unit's power with the ignition, connect the ignition wire
to a power source that can be turned on and off with the
ignition key.
o If the fuse blows, first make sure that the wires have not
caused a short circuit, then replace the old fuse with one
with the same rating.
o Insulate unconnected wires with vinyl tape or other
similar material. To prevent short circuits, also do not
remove the caps on the ends of the unconnected wires
or the terminals.
o Connect the speaker wires correctly to the terminals to
which they correspond. The unit may receive damage or
fail to work if you share the - wires and/or ground them
to any metal part in the car.
o After the unit is installed, check whether the brake lamps,
indicators, wipers, etc. on the car are working properly.
o If the console has a lid, make sure to install the unit so
that the faceplate does not hit the lid when closing and
opening.
o Mount the unit so that the mounting angle is 30° or less.
