Question about Clarion DB538RMP CD Player

Open Question

On/off volume control switch intermittent

The volume control is intermittent on my Bose/Clarion factory audio. '97 Maxima. OEM. If I could locate the replacement part I could fix it myself. I already have it out of the car and out of the tuner. Any suggestions as to where I might get another 'on/off volume control' switch for this? Model number PN-2121D.

Thanks,

Alan

I bought a used car with the clarion drb4275 aftermarket head unit/radio in the car and i do not know how to control the volume. thanks alot, hope to hear back from you.


On the left side of the face is a button with four arrows on it. The volume is controlled by the arrows that point up and down. The arrow pointing up raises the volume and the arrow pointing down lowers the volume.

Just installed my dxz385usb. powered up and got


Check to make sure that the speaker negative and positive leads are not touching. I had the same issue on a 97 maxima, and found the rear speakers so damaged that the (bare) leads on the speaker itself were touching the basket of the speaker, shorting the whole thing out. I disconnected the rear speakers and it started working.

No volume


The Bose system in the Z is wired to control the entire car's speakers. Each speaker has its own amplifier, and the OEM head unit puts out a line-level signal to each amp. Your Clarion unit puts out speaker-level signal (in effect, an amplified signal), into the Bose amps, and it's probably overdriving them and putting them into shutdown.

Your best bet is to replace the Bose speakers with aftermarket speakers meant for a speaker-level drive (which is what I did in my Z, and never once regretted it). If you do so, you'll need to run new wires to the speakers, or if you use the OEM wiring, you'll need to unplug the amps and run the wires from the amp harnesses directly to the new speakers. I think there is an adapter harness you can use that will tap into the line-out jacks on your Clarion, so that a line-level signal can be sent to the Bose speakers - I'd do a google search for "Metra harness 300zx" or something along those lines (Metra makes the lineout harness adapters - I use one in my Audi).

I have a bose stereo in my 96 nissan Maxima that works poorly


there is a problem in the tape drive - possibly a bad belt- thats why the cassette adapter keeps ejecting itself- most add on xm tuners have the ability to broadcast its signal wirelessly-you press the menu button then turn the tuner to select the menu option that you want then press on the tuner control again to choose broadcast (fm signal and which channel you want to broadcast to the factory radio-try www.xmradio.com for more detailed info
