Communication Fault with Remote Control. At a minimum check the following: 1. Check remote control wiring for loose or damaged connections. 2. Bypass remote control cable by connecting remote control directly to remote control terminals on PCB. Replace cable if found to be faulty. Yes Either the wiring or the remote control is at fault. To rule out the wiring, disconnect the remote control and use a short, good jumper wire and connect directly to the remote terminal on the PCB. If the unit works using the remote, then the wiring is at fault. If the unit does not work, then the remote is at fault. Did the unit go to main burner? No Replace the Printed Circuit Board Remove remote control wires from wiring terminal on the PCB. Plug unit in and open a hot water source.
try bridging the remote wire to the positive power wire to see if the problem persists, if this cures the problem then you have a problem with your remote wire, check the cable path to see if you have inadvertently put a screw through the wire or if there is any of the plastic wire covering missing.
PS: Check if you car has remote wire or anterna wire. Details below.
A relatively common problem is installing an amplifier with a
factory head unit or other head unit without a remote turn on wire (or
a burned out circuit). So the amplifier doesn't stay on 24 hours a day
you need a way to turn it on and off remotely. Hence the term "remote
turn on wire". Almost every aftermarket head unit has a remote turn on
wire. Some manufacturers call it a power antenna wire. But regardless
of the label all it does is output a positive 12 volts when the head
unit is turned on. It should be noted that some head units have both a
remote turn on wire and a power antenna wire. It's important to use the
right wire for your amplifier and other electronic equipment. In the
case of both remote and antenna wires the power antenna wire will only
output 12 volts when the radio is on. If you were to connect your
amplifier's remote terminal to the power antenna wire then you would
only get output from the amplifier with the radio. When you switch to
CD the amplifier would not work because the head unit turns off the
power antenna wire when the radio is section is not active.
are several ways to get your amplifier to turn on and off remotely even
if your head unit does not have a remote turn on wire. The cheap and
easy way is to run the amplifier's remote terminal off of a switched
accessory wire. This is the wire that your head unit uses. It is only
powered when the key is in the accessory or run position of the
ignition switch. When you shut the car off the wire loses power and the
head unit and amplifier will both turn off. Your amp will be on when
your car is on and off when you car is off. If you don't want the
amplifier to always be on when the car is on you could wire a simple
switch inline with this new remote wire. Normally you would leave it on
so that it turns on when the head unit is on. But if you wanted to turn
the amplifier off you could flip the switch to off which would stop the
flow of 12 volts to the amplifier's remote turn on terminal.
