    Default NX5000 Dual Deck Ignition Sense

    Hi all,

    I've got two bricks - an NX5700 and NX5800 - wired up with the dual deck setup going into a KCH-20R head. I'm racking my brain trying to get ignition sense to work properly. When I turn the key, only the first brick (the 5800) powers up and I get a missing deck error. If I hold the power button, the head turns off and a few seconds later both decks come up properly and work just fine. They're both programmed for ignition/power switch operation and both have ignition wires run properly.

    I spoke with my dealer (Evans at Sun State) and he said he'd ask Kenwood about. Just wondering if anyone on here is running dual (or triple) decks with ignition sense.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, but I was referencing that document during installation. Dip switches are set properly. I'm going to idiot-check my programming one more time and I might also make sure that the bricks turn on with ignition separately. I'm trying to rule out my own dumb *** doing something wrong before I start pointing fingers at JVCK

    I have the same exact setup as you. I donít remember having to do anything special but set ignition sense in the programming and connect the wires. Currently on 3.0 firmware but it has worked for me from around 2.4.

    Turns out I had a bad crimp connector on the ignition line going to the brick. Bizzare issue but nevertheless solved now. I figured it was probably something on my end. Thanks for the help everyone.
