Question about Car Audio Receivers

Clarion arx9170 Hello, I have this old car stereo unit tape deck/equalizer/spectrum analyzer (from 1995 or so) in my car & the backlights are not working for the main display (the button backlights are fine). I took the display unit apart, there are 4 small bulbs (two on each side of the LCD main display), and none of them appear to be burned out (i.e., the filaments are intact and none are blackened), but they are not lighting up when attached to the main unit. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help...

The problem is the ribbon cable,the one connects the face to the main board,if you live in USA you can order it from or
For replace it you will need to open the unit and open the face by moving manually the gears,then remove the side screws of the face and remove face,then remove the cd mech. you will see the ribbon connector.Just replaced and put everthing back togheter.
Good luck

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.

If you go to your local stereo shop (or even Wal-Mart..) you can get the harness that plugs directly into your cars wiring for about $5-10. It will have the EXACT same wire colors as the harness that came with the Clarion. Just match them up, plug it in and you're good to go!
