Re: lighting on deck

It could be the dimmer - Press and hold [MENU] (DIM) for more than 2 seconds to change dimmer level setting. I suppose you tried playing with the display button as well. Besides these, there's also a decent chance that either the display lamp is not getting power, or that it's out. That takes taking the thing apart, and you probably don't want to do that. Better take it to a repair shop in that case. Good luck

Connecting iPod to Panasonic CQ-C5310U

I'm pretty sure that there are RCA jacks in the back of the unit for the aux input. Don't have my owners manual so can't really say, but if there is an aux input, there is sure to be some RCA jacks in the back. So if you take the stereo out, look for those jacks then attach a 1/8 "Y" connector. Then route that wire to the front. Then you'll have something to connect your mp3 player to. =)

Scooter stereo

Hi again,

My apologies, missed the connection. Now I remember, must be really getting old.

Back to your concern, which fuse pls? the 15 amps for the Panasonic or the amp"s fuse.

Incidentally, even if the speaker wires were wired incorrectly, that would not cause the fuse to blow. The only way the fuse would blow is if the unit was connected with the polarity reversed, even just once. Internally, most units have a reverse protection diode and/or regulator that would short circuit itself. Thereafter even if it were wired correctly to the battery, the fuse will always blow.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Yes, if your explorer's stock radio is bigger than the other, just get an adapter kit, walmart, ebay ect., and a wireing harness adapter for that model. Then pull it out and start wiring it up.

Subwoofer Output Not Working...

The first thing to try is disconnecting ONE of the two subs. See if you get more bass with a single sub than with both. If you do, re-connect the second subwoofer, but reverse the (+) and (-) wires.
