Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, it would appear to be a compatibility issue. The M692 CD changer is expecting multiple data signals from the original radio unit before it would work. Additionally, the Kenwood Excelon KDC-X300 does not have hardware and firmware provision for controlling a CD changer.

I realize that the above information may perhaps be not what was expected. Unfortunately, there is no quick-n-easy fix and neither is there a workaround; sorry for having to be the bearer of bad news.
