Where did my music delay go after installation of aftermarket head uni


Recommended Posts

I am almost finished with the installation of a Kenwood DNX-9140. I really liked the feature I had with the Becker head unit of music continuing to play after removing the key until I opened the door. I would have thought that this worked off of a switch triggered by the opening of a door - but I seem to have lost this feature with the new install. Have others experienced the same with an aftermarket head unit - any solutions? Thanks -

If you are referring to the power, you can try wiring it up to "constant" meaning power is available even after the key is turned off. Decks are normally wired to the accessory on meaning if the key is on the "assesory on" position then there will be power supplied to the deck. I hope this helps.

Thanks RoastDuck88 - I am actually looking to replicate the delay the headunit shut_down after the key is removed - this keeps music playing until you open the door. I believe constant in the wiring harness would require me to turn off the headunit to turn off the music and keep it from drawing on the battery. Please advise if you are aware of something to the contrary. Thanks again.

Sorry for the late response, you are absolutely correct that constant power means you would have to turn off the deck in order to stop the deck from drawing power from your battery. Your best bet is to find an acessory in the car that has a "delay off" and somehow wire it to that. Perhaps your dome light?
