    Kenwood DDX-790 miswire DC error

    ok, my buddy has this reoccurring error message pop up. I DID NOT INSTALL THIS. I am merely trying to fix the issue. Last time, I rewired the harness, and it went away for about a week or so. Now yesturday it popped up again. What am i missing here? We are both military and we go on our post deployment block leave starting this weekend, so I want to make sure his radio works for his long drive from Fort Stewart GA to Wisconsin. Please give me some insight.



    My short lil references from who i bought from.. Tallc, BassAddictJ, lilkman2202, IamMurph, CJ8501, bumpincrv, and mrteacha

    2008 F250 powerstroke. too much performance done, stock stereo.
    2013 Honda Civic, 100% stock inside and out (wifes brand new car)
    2000 Honda Prelude. Son's first car, Sony POS HU, RF Punch 800a2, Alpine type R 10" in vented box tuned to 26hz.

    what kind of vehicle? if you have a dmm double check powers grounds and ohms of the speakers. Also make sure there is no continuity between speakers and ground.

    if its one that has a box that you stash behind the radio then I would try this. Disconnect the acc wire from the radio. Wire a relay to trigger off the acc wire coming from the box. use the 12v constant as a source for power and connect the radio to the output of the relay.

    yeah it has a little box.

    just as a side note, this truck has had the same subs and amp for a few years but he had a headunit, components and coaxial's installed while we were deployed, so i am afraid I will have to rip the interior apart to try to find the culprit

    if it was installed at a shop I would talk to them first. Could be covered by warranty.
