Question about Clarion Car Audio & Video

How do I wire in a Clarion RN-479G to a 1970 Lotus Elan.

I have recently aquired the above radio to fit into my 1970 Lotus Elan +2s. As the bulkhead is very close to the dashboard this is one of the few radios that does "flush fit" to the dash as it is only oprox 90mm deep. there is a basic faded diagram on the radio, but I don't understand some of the various symbols depicted. The radio is negative earth, as is the above Lotus. I would also like to connect the radio to the telescopic arial so that the arial only extends when the radio is switched on & retracts when switched off. please can you help to decipher the wireing diagrm symbols, &/or let me know how to "plumb" it in!
Cheers & rgds, Andy.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls post back the colors of the wires. Additionally, if you could post an image of the faded diagram/symbols, then we could compare with older versions/models before ISO standards were in placed.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

I bought a toyota and i dont know how too urn on the dvd player


Go to Clarion .com select united states then select support at the top of the screen. then in the middle you will see installation and operating manual it said use remote for power and fm to play through radio but you need a second part to run Fm modulated but you may already have it . also it has built in wireless headphone IR transmitter. Check web site for purchase of remote and if no luck . check your locals car stereo shops for a clarion dealer and see if they can get remote and ebay last resort.

Hybrid navigation/tv package nva9400f


I might be able to help you with this. The Addzest Navigation system you have is similar to the Clarion NAX9500E. I have some bits off an Addzest NVA9400F and I bought a second-hand Clarion NAX9500E sat nav system. I have pdf's of the Clarion system that would enable you to get yours running.
I was able to get my Addzest system running but it is all in Japanese and I don't think you can change the language unless you know more than me. I hit the reset button but still in Japanes.
That's why I got the Clarion system instead and salvaged some of the Addzest leads.
My email is dazliggett@yahoo.co.uk if you want me to email you the user and wiring intructions for the similar Clarion Navigation unit.
It is a pitty that I wasn't able to use the Addzest navigation system but hopefully I can still use the
7" monitor.

If you still have the Addzest equipment I was wondering if you would sell me the lead that connects the 7" monitor to the Navigation sytems as I wanted to use that it as a rear monitor.

Hope to hear from you on what you decide as I haven't had much luck finding a lead for my monitor as the Clarion one is the same size but different pin configeration

thanks

Dear FixYa, I accessed the internet and was led to your site in an attempt to resolve a wiring problem. I am not in a financial situation whereby I can afford to pay for this privilege. Thank you for your trouble.
