SOURCE: clarion cz 209 problem

Hello sashunter,

The most likely cause for the problem is that either the power antenna lead or the amp remote turn-on lead has shorted to ground somewhere behind the dash.

Pull the unit back out and make sure that the ends of all of the unused leads are completely covered.

The best way is to use an insulated crimp-on closed-end connector on the end or each unused wire. Heat shrink tubing is also OK. Fold the end of the wire back into a "U" shape and shrink the tubing over the "U" overlapping it about 1/4" on both ends. You can use electricians tape as a last resort, but it's messy if you ever need to remove it and sometimes it just comes off by itself.

Hope this helps.

Remove all the speaker wires.

Power the radio back on and verify it is not the radio at fault.

If it powers up, check the speakers with a Digital Multimeter set to OHMS 20x.

Each speaker should have a resistance of 4 ohms. (or 8 in some cases)

Any variance (+/- .5ohms) means the voicecoil is blown, and replace that speaker.

SOURCE: How do I remove a Clarion DRB4275 head unit??

I am not familiar with this particular model but the majority of Clarion Radios require special flat Clarion Extractor Keys.

see examples here

This site shows how to extract a Clarion from a Peugeot (I expect yours will be similar)

These are usually  readily available on Ebay or your local Car Radio / Audio Store

When i turn stereo on and there is no sound and AMP GRD comes up. how do i sort this out


The amp needs a ground green wire. Attach it to a metal object with a screw. The wiring harness will have a green wire sometimes with a factory installed ring on it to be able to attach it to a ground

I have a clarion CZ109 car stereo. The battery in my car dies, and since boosting it, I have no power to the stereo. Any advice?


try checking all of your fuses. if you can get to the back of the radio, there may be a fuse on the back of the radio or on the wire harness.

Installed and no sound or nothing


Im guessing you have an amplifier if not check the cd player ground " AMP GRD" means amp ground is faulty. In the event that you do have an amplifier check that ground wire as it's most likely the problem.

Ihave power but no sound


hi bign,

try the following things:

1:Try checking your ground connections, if they are good, then try regrounding the head unit to some bare metal in the dashboard, you could have a problem with the factory ground.

2:try looking at your speaker connections, sounds you have a wire grounding,try disconnecting all speakers and see if it does it. If not, try connecting one at a time, see if you can single out the speaker thats causing the problem

and also check to make sure the speaker terminals are not touching any metal, which is unlikely, because they are factory speakers.

god luck! and please rate this solution!
