Have Clarion DB148R cd car stereo but no wiring diagram

matching colors are the speakers, red it the accesory, needs to be hooked up to an alternating current, something that works with the ignitions, this will turn the sterio on and off, yellow is 12 volt or memory, constant power, blue is a remote wire for an amp. black is a ground wire and orange is normally an illumination wire, so when you dim your dash lights your stereo also dims.

Clarion rdb465d display reads TEL after install, what does it mea

Hello rhowell2,

It sounds like the head unit has a ground on the "telephone" lead.

Make sure that all unused leads are taped off or otherwise insulated against touching other leads or the vehicle frame.

Hope this helps.

Clarion stereo in1997 mercury marquis wiring hook up to amplifer

make sure the speaker wires in the car do not have one side grounded.the output on the clarion is a floating output and cannot be grounded.the best solution is to look at the wiring on each of the speakers,and match them out to the ones on the clarion.the most common colr code is white front left,gray front right green rear left and purple rear right.each speaker has a plus and minus.mixing them up will result in the speakers being out of phase and result in poor bass performance.i would wire the wires directly to the clarion using crimp connectors.the first thing i would do is power up the stereo out of the car to 12 volts,and using a speaker make sure you have sound coming out.the yellow wire which is the clock/memory is a must to be connected to constant 12 volts or no sound can result

Subwoofer istalation into a clarion DXZ375MP stereo

The DXZ375 has two sets of RCA outputs (1 red plug, 1 white plug) located on the back of the unit. The set with the white main wire is for a front amplifier, and the one with the black main wire is the rear. You want the black one.

I'm assuming you also have an amplifier for your subs and the necessary wiring. You will need to run a 12v+ from the battery to the amplifier, splice a power-on signal wire from the ACC Power wire on the stereo's wiring harness (red wire) as well as connect the amp to the stereo via the RCA outputs.

Clarion marine stereo M2455

Don't worry about the brown wires. They are for telephone mute.

The yellow is Memory (constant 12 volt, so battery is fine), but the red should go to a 12 volt source that turns on and off with the key.

Sea ray boat Clarion stereo and amp

Unless a fuse is blown, there's a problem with the wiring or you have a defective component, there's no reason the amp shouldn't come on. You need to confirn that you have the proper voltage at the amp.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Clarion uses the industry standard wiring colors. Not every unit will have all of the listed wires

White = Left Front +
White/Black = Left Front –

Gray = Right Front +
Gray/Black = Right Front –

Green = Left Rear +
Green/Black = Left Rear-

Violet = Right Rear +
Violet/Black = Right Rear –

Yellow 14ga = Battery Main/Memory
Yellow 18ga = Battery CeNET Power/Memory
Red = Accessory (ignition on)
Black = Ground
Blue = Antenna Turn On +
Blue/White = Remote Turn On (amps) +
Orange/White = Dimmer
Brown = Phone Mute
Orange or Mint Green= Parking Brake Video Lockout
White/Red = CCD (camera) input instant on +

RCA Cables:
Gray = Front Output
Black = Rear Output
Purple = Non-Fade or Subwoofer Output
