Thread: Kenwood Cd-Changer To AUX. Input

    I have two older (pre 2000) kenwood HUs for which the CA-C1AUX also does not work. I tried all kinds of different combinations with the resistor but only got NO CH. I think the older models actually need a clock signal and/or communication from the cd changer to work .

    So, I finally ended up hacking up an old temperemental changer, took out the electronic 4"x5" circuit board (brains) of the unit and threw the rest of the changer away. When I plug it into the HU, the receveiver thinks it has a faulty changer and displays E99. However, the audio channels are open so using the pinouts in this thread I was able to "tap" into the cable and connect my iPod that way. "E99" now simply means I'm in AUX mode!

    It works great! I put the circuit board in a small box and simply stuffed it and the CD changer cable behind the dash. I then guided my RCA/mini jack cable to the front where the iPod plugs in.

    I should have taken a pic before I install it. If I ever upgrade I'm sure I can sell this custom cable!

With the Head Unit in CH NO mode, I can't get audio to come through, no matter where I plug the audio cables, so it seems. I have no cd-changer to see if that works, sorry.

    Can anyone else lend a hand here? I'm still having problems. Thanks!

    I did this a long time ago , so I cant remember exactly what it says on the LCD , but when I pressed on Source (the button to change between fm 1 ,2 ,3 AM) and the resistor was in , I could scroll to DISK - --- --(would look something like that).

    Then from there, I plugged a sound input , and I can control volume and bass/treble.

    I think that mine will be displaying the "CH NO" message when taking that aux input from the faked changer, but my biggest problem is in the audio cables, where to plug them. The pinouts I saw in earlier posts arent quite working for me. Please see my posts from the last couple days and you'll understand more.

    Again, I really appreciate all the help you guys have given me!

    Maybe the head unit requires a clock signal to let the sound pass or something.

    i dont think its your audio cables. i think "ch no" might mean no changer or something. u sure u've got the right size resistor?

    kevinlekiller how did you or your source come to the conclusion that 10k was best? was this measured sumhow? if so maybe the problem with SlimMJS is that the resistor is not tricking the HU into fully thinking its a changer. like it can see something but not a proper changer.

    The guy bought a comercial aux adapter and reversed engineered it , and noticed it was only a resistor.

    edit:
    does this make any sense to you? http://www.lompec.nl/KenwoodPC.htm
    I can't figure out what HU is this link http://www.lompec.nl/KenwoodPC.htm talking about

    I noticed that both pinouts i gave you have differents pinouts from that in the schematic.

    You can add me to msn if u want more information but I don't know how i can be helpfully to you...
