Question about Clarion Car Audio & Video

2 Answers

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.
