SOURCE: clarion apa4320 amp power light pulses

There is not enough power coming from you radio to power the amp. You might want to look in to a capacitor. What this will do is it will pull in the power and maintain a steady output for your amp to operate

yes you have a internal fault of the amp. the circuit that puts it into safe mode is bad and that is a very small chip on the board know as a op amp. needs to be repaired.

I need a wiring diagram to hook up a new radio.


First you will need to get a wire harness for your specific make, model & year of car. This will interface the car wiring plug to your new clarion headunit.

Next you will connect the wires from your purchased wire harness to the wires of your Clarion Headunit. Using **** connectors with a wire crimper is the best way to do so.

Here is a wire color coding guide for the wires on your Clarion headunit:

P o w e r Memory (+12v Constant) Yellow Ignition (+12v Switched) Red Ground (-) Black Dimmer Pink/White (Alpine only) Power Antenna Blue Amplifier Turn-on Blue/White Phone Mute Light Blue (Sony only) S p e a k e r s Right Front (+) Gray Right Front (-) Gray/Black Left Front (+) White Left Front (-) White/Black Right Rear (+) Violet Right Rear (-) Violet/Black Left Rear (+) Green Left Rear (-) Green/Black

I am changing out a Clarion ARX7570z to NZ500. Have most of the bugs worked out but I need a wiring diagram for the ARX to figure out the which wires are which. HELP!


the wiring diagram is out dated for the cassett player ....

here is what i know

red is ignition swichted
yellow is contstant power
black is ground
blue power antenna
blue with white strip amp turn on

gray + f right speaker
gray/black strip - f right speaker

white is + L front speaker
white with black strip is - L front speaker

green is + L rear speaker
green with black strip - L rear speaker

purple is + r rear speaker
purple with black strip - r rear speaker

your orange with white strip is illumanation not used

100% of all aftermarket radios are color code this way if you have install diagram for new radio it will be the same as old clarion radio ..

but make sure u have a digital volt meter to check power on red and yellow wire and comming from the factory harness be for you connect new radio just to make sure it does have powers and check other wire for power also just so you dont blow up new radio ... you can blow up a radio by connecting a wrong wire faster than you can blink your eyes ..... if you need a wire diagram for you modle car email me with it a http://www.tintingbyfredjohnson.com and go to contact and send email

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

Wiring instructions for kenwood kdc-mp8533


dark blue is the remote for the amp
light blue is the remote for a power ant. (or amp)
orange is for the light dimmer (when you turn your lights on it will not be so bright, optional)
black is ground
brown is if you have a button in your car for a cell phone it will mute it when pushed (optional)
red is power (acc power)
yellow is always on power(for the clock and presets)
the rca jacks are for the amp they should be used if using an amp (there wattages are preset for amps anyway)

hook up the rca's to your amps along with the dark or light blue wires and when you turn the stereo on the amp will come on everything else should be hooked up as stated above. Hope this helps.
