Question about Clarion Car Audio & Video
I have a suzuki grand vitara(07) with a Clarion PS-2996D-C head unit with a 6 stacker attached. Between the normal power/speaker plug and the stacker plug, there is a 8 pin socket. I have found one of the pins to be the telephone mute.Can you tell me the pinout for the other pins as I would like to have my handsfree car kit use the stereo speakers.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: speaker hookup
Use the speaker wire outputs on the wiring harness on the back of the radio. The RCA outputs are for using an external amplifier, so you do not want to use them. The speaker wires should be color coded. The front speakers are normally grey and grey with a black stripe for one side, and then white and white with a black stripe for the other side (left and right sides)
The rear speakers are violet and violet with a black stripe and the other rear is green and green with a black stripe. All the solid colors are the positive speaker output and the wires with the black stripe are the negative speaker outputs.
These speaker outputs are on the same harness as the power connections to power up the radio. I believe that it has more than 10 wires on it. I am not sure what socket you speak of that is 10 pin and has speaker outputs. The speaker outputs alone are 8 wires, so the harness will have more than 10 wires. It also has the yellow wire for constant 12 volts to keep memory, the red wire to connect to 12 volts when the vehicle is on, and the black wire for the ground. Then it should also have a blue wire for use with an external amplifier to turn it on or to use for a power antenna to turn it on. You may also find several other wires on it like the orange for illumination and brown for muting the radio when a phone is in use. Those last few wires do not need to be used unless you want them for a specific purpose.

facing the back of the 7940 the top left corner is pin 16 the top right corner is pin 9. The bottom left is pin 8 and the bottom right is pin 1. Only a few of the 16 pins are used due to this unit only having pre-outs, no internal amplifier on this unit. Pin 1 red (ignition), Pin 2 pink/black (interrupt), Pin 3 orange (Illumination), Pin 8 black (ground), Pin 9 blue (power antenna), Pin 10 blue/white (remote turn on), Pin 16 yellow (battery).

Sounds like you are missing one of the leads. You will probably need a new harness OR try any local stores to see if you can find the same length pin that snaps in to place on the molex plug
