Look for loose or broken wiring connections. Swap front and rear speakers wires at radio and determine if problem is the radio or the speaker system.

Hello, i have a clarion xmd3, i bought it in 2004 and have a sirrius add on sara radio reciever. im trying to resubscribe for service. i need the radio to display sat radio id#. went to clarion web site...


You can get the # right off the Sirius unit (it's on a sticker on it - SID#).

Also try going between channels 1 and 184 (IE go track/tune down) it may show up then.

If not press and hold the T button for longer than 1 second. Then use the track up/down buttons to scroll through the menu. There should be a screen that will show Sirius or Sat ID or something to that effect. When you see that press the up or down button, or play pause and it should display it.

Let me know if that works.

I have a Clarion installed in my boat. Sirrius, cd am fm. No jack to plug in iPod. Solution?


FM Modulator.

(clarion makes a hardwire direct connect one)

FM200

You would use a 3.5mm to RCA adapter

There are also battery powerd ones (Belkin)

Either one is used by simply tuning in to an empty (white noise) radio station.

Im assuming the XMD3-RET is not the radio you are inquiring about since you described Sirius as a feature.

Some clarion radios have an AUX input or changer port that can be converted to an ipod cable.

If you reply with a model # i can look it up for you. I am a Clarion Dealer.

XMD3 unable to select anything but satellite


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.
