Question about Clarion Boating
I have a 1999 Sea Ray 185 boat with a marine clarion mo350 radio, I had a qualified dealser/shop bench check the radio and it works, when I install it in boat it does not work.Is the yellow wire the hot one and does it end up connecting to the ignition switch?
Yes, the yellow wire is the switched hot lead - it is typically connected in one way or another to the ignition switch. There is also a smaller gauge red wire that is connected directly to the battery (through a fuse of course). Both of these wires have to have power for the radio to work. Also the black wire has to be connected to a good ground. If all three of these wires are confirmed to be in good order (power where there should be power, ground where there should be ground and no shorts) the radio should at least power up when they are all hooked up and the ignition is on.
