Kenwood Car Stereo Wiring Diagrams & Color Codes

Car radio installers spend a reasonable amount of time identifying and matching the wiring harnesses.

And for a good reason. Any carelessness in this stage can cause you to pair two different radio wires, resulting in the car radio not working correctly. Or not work at all in rare cases.

To help you out, we have been compiling wiring diagrams and color codes for different car radios for some time. This includes JVC car radio diagramsNissan car radio diagramsFord car radio diagrams, and Pioneer car radios.

Keeping up with the tradition, we’re listing diagrams for Kenwood car radios today.
