    Oh look, it's that guy who doesn't know how to properly install a car stereo and keeps ruining things then come here and asks why.



    Take it to a shop next time because you obviously aren't skilled enough to do it yourself.

    Re: head unit just started smoking

    it might not be a kenwood harness its the one the best buy people put in i dont know the plug fits in both headunits but the alpine headunit blows fuses and the kenwood doesnt i dont get it and the alpine one it was smoking does that mean its done or does it still have a chance to work maybe i just need a big fuse or somthing ?
