When you unpluged the unit it reset itself! unplug again wait 15 minutes then it will go back to factory settings !the orignal password you entered is no longer valid

Ok heres wht i found by reading up. theres a reset button on the unit in a control panel as the manual states, after hitting reset turn the key to off killing the power to the unit. then turn it back on and see if all is fine. if all went well your password should be gone and back to normal. accordig to the manual the units micro processor is senseitive if noise is introduce it can go haywire and needs to be reset. hence the whole hooking unhooking the power, that would qualify as noise. so try a reset and repost and read your manual over for the reset location considering i do not own this unit.

Who put in the password If that is not an option I would call a clarion dealer and tell the you bought a car with the clarion in it so you never had the password and therefore did not realize that you needed to do this. I'm sure they can tell you how to get in

How I can reset a Clarion MAX385VD?


If there is a reset switch, there will be a pencil tip sized depression somewhere on the face. It will not be marked. If there is no reset switch, just disconnect the battery for a minute or so.

I got a clarion vz409 car stereo an it locked completely


I just had the EXACT same problem, and 5 hours searching on the web got me nowhere. I set the lockout code, but it will not unlock, and now its locked up. then I called clarion. Turn the deck on with the screen out, then hold the power and play button to bring back up the password screen. Default is 0000 but if that does not work, enter 4356 and it will Unlock!

Display is locked and is asking for a four digit password?


disconnect from power for 30 seconds and you will need to disable the park brake shut off buy grounding the brake wire for 2 seconds then off .. you will have to do this everytime you want to drive with this system .. i have seen people put a toggle switch inline with the brake wire and click it on and off to make the stereo work ... i hope that helps .. and remember in most citys its illegal to drive with a monitor in the front of the automobile

I have forgotten the password on my Clarion MAX385VD and the unit has subsequently locked. Is there a bypass code for the remote or what can i do. I have contacted Clarion in Mylasia and httey referred me...


The only CLARION code available for free (using a serial number ) from anywhere on the Internet is if your radio also has a BARCODE SERIAL NUMBER beginning with C7000000 + + + + on a label somewhere on the metal casing.

(There are usually two barcodes on one label. The one required is the lower one )

If not then it will only be available from your Main Dealer or a Decoding

I just installed a Clarion max385vd. When we turn the headlights on, the buttons and screen illumination on the head unit keep flashing from dim to bright. Everything else is working perfect.


illumination wire does not need to be installed on this model. depending on your car, it may use odd voltage for the dash lights. Clip and tape off the illumination wire going to the harness.
