Question about Clarion XMD3

1 Answer

XMD3 unable to select anything but satellite

Clarion XMD3 came with a new boat in 2005 and has worked fine until this season. When I turn on the radio it goes right to Sirius and I cannot get it to select tuner, aux, etc. It keeps telling me to call the sirius number. I never bothered to activate the satellite since we do not use the radio very much - not until gas got so expensive anyway.

I have had several problems like that. It is probably one of your controllers especially if you have the old oval ones. Go to the back of the stereo and unplug them, then plug one in at a time and isolate the problem to a controller.

NO SOUND FROM CLARION XMD3


I have a XMD3 with Sirius on a Larson boat. Had same problem - everything seemed to be fine on unit (everything lit up and CD showed different tracks and time changing), but no sound. I suspected a ground problem and checked wires I could see. Found one speaker wire that had been frayed due to faulty installation. As soon as I wiggled that wire I got sound on all speakers. Not sure why one faulty speaker would kill all sound, but it did for me.

Bottom line is that boats are a hrsh environment for electronics. Moisture, salt, and vibration all conspire to undo solder joints and electrical connections. 4 years is a pretty good life span on a boat. A solder connection within the unit could have let go. A good repair shop could probably fis the bad connection but you can probably replace the unit for less.
