    i m sorry for the late response, i was out of town for the weekend, first of all i would like to thank you for looking into this matter, i have tried to follow the wires(orange) and it is connected properly, but there is no light illumination on at all when the car is on, i wonder if it is a factory defect, but even then my warranty is over, and stupid me, i never bother with it, untill it recently comes on more often and i find it more useful at night with the lights illuminated, thanks for trying, any other suggestions thanksss

    hi hogan, it was so nice today, and my order for the back up camera came in, so i did as told, i tried cleaning the connector, and there is no change to the lighting, it's still not illuminating, hmm.. i don't know what else i can do, but i really appreciate your kindness to help the situation. At first i thought it was something wrong with his installation and he didn't wanna bother checking it, but i guess it's a factory defect,
    And now for my second problem, i have just installed a back-up camera,( BOYO VTL 400) and i connected as told, but there is no video showing just a blank screen, I was just wondering is it something wrong with the camera or do you think i have to buy a back-up camera from eclipse in order to work? thanks again for your time and effort, hope to hear from you soon, thanks

Check see if your illuminate wire(orange) is connected properly. If it is, you should get a high illumination when your lights are off and low illumination when lights are on.

    On the back of your face plate. There are these connectors that make connection with the unit. Try to clean them up really good because sometime they get dirty specially if you removed it alot. Dirty connection can creat all kind of weird problems. Goodluck.

    Hi bud, you do have to get an Eclipse brand one to get it working by the deck rear view camera function. If you have a different brand it could still be use if it has rca line out or if you can get an adapter to convert the camera output to rca line and hook that up to the deck video rear input also sometime called aux input, make sure it the yellow rca input line and switch your deck source to rear video to see rear camera video. Let me know how it goes after you try it. Hogan.

Flip up screen won,t illuminate. dark


if the screen needs to be wired to the dash light switch it will not change unless the lights are on, if the wire is disconnected it is possible to bypass it making the screen stay bright.
although it would seem more likely that the brightness could be adjusted on the unit settings or by a button on the unit itself

Stays illuminated wen shut off.


Sounds to me like the (+) wire that is supposed to be hooked to the dashboard light circuit is instead hooked to something that is on all the time, such as Battery (+).

I just installed a Clarion max385vd. When we turn the headlights on, the buttons and screen illumination on the head unit keep flashing from dim to bright. Everything else is working perfect.


illumination wire does not need to be installed on this model. depending on your car, it may use odd voltage for the dash lights. Clip and tape off the illumination wire going to the harness.

Wire diagram i think


pink wire if its to go to ground then any metal is ground or negative not live in other words they say the handbrake so you cant use it whilst driving so any metal should do for this ok.

Are you wiring it to amp or not?
Also the mute only wires into say phone cradle or something that would mute the stereo say if you had phone in craddle this would mute the sound so you could here the call. so not needed unless you have phone craddle.

If the two lives are wired in and the ground black when you earth the pink then it should switch on let me know if this happens.

Auto ant is for the arial on car if this goes up and down on motor if not then its not needed

Ill check on dimmer/illumination ok but bare with me for couple of hours just popping out but will get back to you then ok

In dash


I don't think you can - it's likely that it's an LCD-type screen illumination, not bulbs that can be changed. I haven't yet heard of anyone able to do this. I wish it was possible though - I have the 9311TS in my Audi, and the Audi uses red dash illumination.
