Hello sashunter,

The most likely cause for the problem is that either the power antenna lead or the amp remote turn-on lead has shorted to ground somewhere behind the dash.

Pull the unit back out and make sure that the ends of all of the unused leads are completely covered.

The best way is to use an insulated crimp-on closed-end connector on the end or each unused wire. Heat shrink tubing is also OK. Fold the end of the wire back into a "U" shape and shrink the tubing over the "U" overlapping it about 1/4" on both ends. You can use electricians tape as a last resort, but it's messy if you ever need to remove it and sometimes it just comes off by itself.

Hope this helps.

When i turn stereo on and there is no sound and AMP GRD comes up. how do i sort this out


The amp needs a ground green wire. Attach it to a metal object with a screw. The wiring harness will have a green wire sometimes with a factory installed ring on it to be able to attach it to a ground

sounds like you need to check your speakers and/speaker wires to make sure you don't have a short to ground or bad speaker. if those check out, you may have a bad output ic inside of the deck.

My clarion cd player in my boat was working fine now it says amp grd. I have looked but i see nothing unhooked what can i do to get sound out of my speakers?


Remove all the speaker wires.

Power the radio back on and verify it is not the radio at fault.

If it powers up, check the speakers with a Digital Multimeter set to OHMS 20x.

Each speaker should have a resistance of 4 ohms. (or 8 in some cases)

Any variance (+/- .5ohms) means the voicecoil is blown, and replace that speaker.

Installed and no sound or nothing


Im guessing you have an amplifier if not check the cd player ground " AMP GRD" means amp ground is faulty. In the event that you do have an amplifier check that ground wire as it's most likely the problem.
