Customer Question
My DPX500BT has colors...

My DPX500BT has colors that keep rotating, I can't read the dark colors. How can I stop the colors when it is on yellow?

Mechanic's Assistant: Who makes your car electronics?

Jeep - 2012 Liberty, Kenwood is an after market installation.

Mechanic's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Kenwood unit?

I've pushed every button and combinations of buttons. I had it before, but when the car was serviced I lost it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

Yes, I can't get it to keep the AM station and I lost Serius MX - which I just paid for. Everytime I turn off the car I lose everything.
