Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I bought a 2002 citroen c3. the clarion cd player works fine but when i put it on radio theres no signal just silence. I press scan and it briefly says LO then goes to DX and just keeps scanning. ive checked the ariel cable in the back of the stereo its all connected up fine. ive made sure the roof ariel is fitted and still no signal. ive read that the antenna amplifier on the roof could be faulty. if thats the case how do i recify it? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as i listen to the radio a lot. thanks

Remove radio from car dashboard, disconnect antenna and put about 2-3 m wire into it instead. Try to search for any radio signal - if it's finding something then aerial amp is broken. As far as I remember it's in aerial base and might need replacement.

that should be all you need. The adapters are called a dash kit with should fill the in the gaps of the factory stereo, and also you will need an aftermarker wiring harness to go from the factory plug out to your new head unit.

SOURCE: 2002 Kia Sedona - Cd Player reads ''error''

It the player won't run the cleaning disc or doesn't turn any disc, then the cd player motor or capacitor that controls power to the motor is faulty

You have wired the amplifier turn-on wire to the power antenna wire by mistake.
The amplifier is turning off because it is losing the 12V signal in the power antenna wire when you go off the TUNER to CD.

Swap the blue wires, and you'll be set.

Hello! Just bought a 2003 Citroen C3 with a Clarion stereo wich has a cd stuck inside. How do i get it out? Already tried eject and it does a strange noise but, the cd is still stuck inside. Help!


it sounds like the intake/ eject rubbers are not working this is almost always due to a broken drive belt take the top of the stereo and have a look for the intake wheel see if the belt is broken and then replace

Radio works fine but power goes off when switch to CD player


Your antenna remote is installed on the amplifier turn on lead.
When your Radio switches source - it thinks the antenna should go down and drops the signal (and thereby dropping the signal to your amplifier).
Swap the 2 "blue" wires and you'll be all set.

Only door speakers have sound on the cd mode


the amp requires a 12 volt power constant, and a 12 volt "on" signal. you prolly have the 12 v "on" hooked up to the car stereo's antennae remote, meaning your amp gets power when the radio is on, cuase the radio is sending a signal to the amp (thinking that it is sending a signal to the antennae to raise)

you do have one of those collapsable antennas, right?
