According to the specifications on the Clarion website it has:
  • 4ch/2V RCA Output (Front/Sub)
    So in answer to your question I believe it does have RCA line out.

I changed the battery on my truck and the stereo went into enter password and dont know what it is and now it is locked


Assuming you have tried standard default codes 0000, 1111, 1234...
Clarion models keep the security code in non-magnetic memory inside the unit.
The only way to reset is to return it to clarion to have it cracked and reset using their proprietay software, and/or replace the flash memory chip.

Clarion authorized service centers cannot even do it (like Kenwood can)

If it says CODE, you can attempt to enter a code. If it says LOCK - after 7 attempts, you must wait 15 minutes.


Hope this helps

Regards

Unit will not eject CD will play fine but won't eject


Once it gets too hot in your car, a stereo or the cd in it can warp.If you press the eject button and the music keeps playing the unit has an electrical problem you can't fix. If you press eject and the disc sounds, or looks like it wants to come out, you might have a warped disc. As a last resort, pull out the stereo and leave it connected. Then try to eject it. If it ejects, then the stereo could be binding.

My clarion CD player in my Nissan Primera P12 2004 will not eject the discs can this be rectified and would it be expensive.


Hi.


Check first that it is not a single disk stuck inside.

Try pressing repeatedly the eject button on the on dash player while at the same time you start the stereo.

If that does not work you can try disconnecting the car battery to reset the unit, and then attempt again the procedure above.

Remember that you may be asked stereo code after disconnecting battery, have it ready.

If still no luck, then the unit must be removed from the dash to be taken apart, so to remove the stuck disk.

In that case the repair may require replacement of CD drive unit or front panel. When disk does not exject repair done from a local technician may be expensive. Usually better replacing the whole stereo unit.

Regards.

PS: Here the procedure above illustrated in detail. The procedure is described for home DVD players, but it is the same on any optical unit, including in-dash stereo. Naturally , since the unit is an in-car system, you do not have power cord, but you will need to disconnect battery to reset the system: player system won't eject disk.
