Dash Radio Replacement Kenwood KDC-115S

Since I was unable to get a definitive answer to this question I thought I'd post the scenario here and maybe save someone else the research time.

My Kenwood KDC-115S dash radio display had grown so dim as to be useless. I sent it off to Kenwood for repair and it was damaged in shipment to the point that I had to replace the radio. Unfortunately, the KDC-115S is no longer available.

I did not want to fool with rewiring the harness or change the mounting sleeve if it could be avoided. Since it turned out that no one, including those I talked to at Kenwood, could say that a particular radio was 100% certain to be 100% compatible with the KDC-115S, I ordered the Kenwood KDC-138/CR on a leap of faith.

It arrived today. After comparing the wiring harness color coding I plugged it in to the original plug, slipped it into the original sleeve and powered it up. Worked like a champ, delivering audio to all of the coach's speakers and to the original point, I can now see what station it's tuned to.

Hope it saves someone time in the future.

Most Kenwood radios (I expect) will fit and work the same.

Also, most other makes either will fit the same or... You can get a ready made adapter cable that plugs into the radio and the Kenwood I/O plug plugs into that.

NOTE: if your radio does not have a "I-Pod" input jack or other line in jack, and it does have the ability to control an external CD player.... Kenwood makes an adapter, about 30-40 bucks, that will convert that port to LINE IN for a I-Pod or Mini-Disc or other audio source.. Very handy.
