, the message you are getting is "amp guard". This is the mesage it will display when a short in a speaker wire or speaker with low impedence is hooked to the internal amp and sends it into protect mode, shutting down the amplifier section while the rest of the unit continues to work.

check all of your speakers

It says amp guard when i turn it up


Sounds like you have speakers that are wired incorrectly. Most car stereos require a 4-ohm load, if you wire two standard speakers in parallel it will create a 2-ohm load and cause this condition.

Clarion DXZ545MP in yacht . charter client usedan mp3, pulled it out and the receiver would no longer get satelite radio, It also wqould not receive satelite radio from tv receiver qwhen on AUX. The name...


Have you tried 1st to pull the unit out of the wall using the little metal "keys" to release the deck from the mounting cage and than pull the power plug AND the Satillite plug as well and wait for 10 minutes or so and replug it but first hit the reset button and see what happens. I run into this frequently with Clarion's in boats/yacht, not sure why but i guess it could be result of a voltage surge. Now the display is saying that you have a blown speaker or more than likely a wire that is grounded out. I highly doubt the charter client caused the head unit to shut down other than the simple act or ejecting a cd. We quit selling Clarion for that very reason, an abnormal rate of repair occurances. And I would wager you have the hard wired remote controls either on the bridge or in the rear at the swim platform or both locations. These too could be the problem. I can't tell you how many hours i have spent running down a shorted speaker wire. Because if one is shorted in the "slightest" you get the message "amp guard". If push comes to shove Captain i recommend a small amplifier and use only the pre-outs (rca cables) instead of speaker wire. Good luck and let me know if i can assist you because i work on a lot of watercraft believe it or not in Arizona and most are over 34' Cuddys like SeaRay SunDancers etc. good luck...

Check your Factory speaker locations for blown speakers or bare wires to metal.

No, the RCA plugs are used for connecting to an amplifier only, they are not powerful enough to drive speakers directly.

Clarion dxz545mp doesn't power, does not work.


Check the fuses in the fuse block under the hood. Your clock fuse and radio constant power fuse are combined in this vehicle.
