Hi All,

After swapping battery on my truck, my head unit displayed the ' There is an error in your speaker wiring check your wiring and contact customer support ' ( words to that effect ).

I didnt do anything about it for a bit as thought it would go away, disconnected battery, then didn't so tried re-initialise, and have now also done firmware upgrade. It still is locked in DC Protect mode.

I have been told by Kenwood that I need to courier my DDX9016DABS to them to have the DC Protect error rest by them. And of course pay over $100 for the privilege!!

Surely there is a button sequence or something to clear this error?

Thanks for your help - Ive done all the basic troubleshooting so probably need a Kenwood guru for this one.

Tye

Mine did that as well. I disconnected the battery and did a hard reset. Not sure why they do that. It would happen from time to time. So my ultimate fix was to take it out cut all the wires and put a new one in. Problem solved.

but, that is a head ache. Did you change any wiring? Mine was doing that when I was changing things around chasing a ground issue. Never happened again after I changed the ground on the radio. Just a thought.

There is a tiny hole somewhere that is a hard factory reset button. Use that and see what happens. Mine was on the front face below the button used to turn the unit on. Ddx393bt

All the wiring was new when it was professionally installed. It has been re-tested with a multi-meter and all is ok. It seemed to happen after we changed car/truck battery. I have looked everywhere for a pin-hole size reset button but this unit does not seem to have one. It is not behind the screen either. Still at a loss...

Mine also does this periodically, on and off for several years now. It was professionally installed. I had the shop send it back to Kenwood who responded "unable to reproduce problem" and sent it back to me. Sometimes it's fine the next time I start the vehicle, other times it's very persistent. This morning it was being very persistent - restarted the car like 6 times and got the error each time. I happened to turn off bluetooth on my phone before restarting car and finally got no error, and then turned bt back on after startup and all was good. Maybe a simultaneous bt connection is part of the error, maybe it was coincidence. Maybe something to try.
