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 unplug again wait 15 minutes then it will go back to factory settings !the orignal password you entered is no longer valid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.

Best thing to do is take it to the dealer, they will reset it back to factory settings

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

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!

Clarion drx6375 says error 3


it means the radio code has been inputed incorrectly three times you need to disconnect the mains from the rear of the sterio for 30seconds to reset the memory then leave the sterio on till the error message turns into the - - - - where you input the code again.

Wires


red= accessories power on
yellow= power always on memmory
black= ground
blue white= amp switch this goes to amp
blue= power antenna
the other wires are speaker wires top is for the fronts
the bottom set is for the back speakers this is simple
suggestion if you dont know the wire hook up i suggest taken the wires and sterio to certified car sterio installer pay 5 bucks and have them splice the wires together for you so you dont screw up your vehicle wireing or your sterio this is crucial
