    I knew I should have bought an Alpine. But i let my stereo guy who is now out of business talk me into the POS Kenwood. He said the Excelons are great. Well now the AUX doesn't show up so i can't plug in my MP3!

    I HATE Kenwood!

    Why not use the Kenwood warranty, or did you buy it from a non-legit store?

    Yeah I have the Excelon and I love it. It has a 3 year warranty so it should be covered.

    It's a KDCX-591 I sent an email to customer service. We'll see what they say. The unit is in my Saleen. I'll keep you posted.

    I've never had issues with Kenwoods, expecially the excelon line. Think you just have a lemon or some bad karma.
