I had the same issue with a blown speaker
that was shorting it self
out. I found this on "TeamClarion.com" site. Step
1: Disconnect all the speakers from the head unit and try again. If the same
message comes up, send the unit in for service. Step
2: If the message goes away, you have a wiring problem. Check each speaker lead
for a short circuit, damaged speaker or a ground to chassis. Basically
means one set (or more) of the speaker leads are touching each other (shorting
out). This can be somewhere inline to your speakers or your speakers them
selves. The advise above isn't to clear. In the first step they want to rule
out the speakers attached but "disonnecting all the speakers" is
vague. You should disconnect at the rear of the radio. This might be difficult
because the multi plug in the back has the speakers and power wires together
(at least most clarions). Also if it was a good install then the outgoing
speaker wires were soldered to the long run speaker wires going to the
speakers. To truly test for radio fault
verses the wiring or speakers, you have to sever the connection at the back of
the radio. If this is not something you wish to do then there is one
suggestion. Order a new multi plug for the back of the radio. This way you can
pull the old plug and test it with a new plug with no speakers attached (just
have to run 12v positive and negative). If the radio is OK then start
by checking all the wires to your speakers (if possible). If nothing seems bare
and shorting (remember it's usually in tight places or were the wires are
hanging loose that vibration will cause cutting to the wire) then disconnect
all your speakers (at the rear of the speakers). Turn the radio back on and see
if it does the error message again. If not reattach the speakers one by one
checking for the error message. You can check these in any order.
If you don’t want to order a new plug then you and can’t get to much of the
wiring to physically check then starting at the speakers is OK.
sounds like you connected the amp turn on lead to the power antenna wire coming from the deck, so the amp turns on when you have the radio on, but turns off when playing cds. you need to connect the amp turn on lead to the amp remote wire.
