Re: Need Help !

Judging from the symptoms, I'd guess that "ACCS" means "accessory". All CD players have a constant power input and an accessory power input. There has to be voltage on both wires for the CD player to work, although the clock and CD load/eject functions will work with just a constant power connection. My guess is that there's an accessory switch somewhere in the boat that needs to be turned on for the CD player to activate. Failing that, if you can get the the wiring on the back of the CD player, the red wire is the accessory power wire. You can simply cut it and re-connect it to the same source as the yellow constant power wire. This will allow the CD player to work independently of any outside switches.

Disconnect all the speaker leads and then hook one speaker (a new, known to work speaker) up directly to the radio using a short (6"-12") piece of speaker wire. Does that speaker work then?

I have this radio on a 2001 sea ray boat with the wired remote and I can't seem to get the remote to work. Wondering if it's more than likely the actual remote unit or some thing in the wire harness that's...

I know this isn't going to help you but I have a similar issue. The remote will function IF I first turn on the radio from the radio unit itself. Yours should turn on when the boat turns on, as mine did once. Now, my remote will not turn on the radio but will control it once I take the step mentioned above. I suspect I have a faulty remote. Coincidentally my battery now loses it's charge after a couple weeks of no activity. Perhaps a short in the remote unit causes a slow drain.

Clarion radio sound flickers

make sure your wirings are rated to handle the current needed by your radio. You might have a large voltage drop when it is at high volume level because it will draw lots of current. You might need to change the size of your wires to your Clarion. Check the voltage near the radio when it starts to flicker if it goes below the source voltage of 12V. hope this helps
