Hi again,

My apologies, missed the connection. Now I remember, must be really getting old.

Back to your concern, which fuse pls? the 15 amps for the Panasonic or the amp"s fuse.

Incidentally, even if the speaker wires were wired incorrectly, that would not cause the fuse to blow. The only way the fuse would blow is if the unit was connected with the polarity reversed, even just once. Internally, most units have a reverse protection diode and/or regulator that would short circuit itself. Thereafter even if it were wired correctly to the battery, the fuse will always blow.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

I took my panasonic cq-c8303u out of my jeep and put it in my civic hooked all the wires up right but no power to my deck whats could the problem be?


Check the in line cylinder fuse for the radio, cause they blow easy. Also, check the radio fuse under the dash or wherever your fuse box is located. Make sure you solder the connections for a good contact, cause just wrapping electrical tape around the wires will cause you problems down the road when you go over bumps.

Panasonic CQ-C8303U. Hooked up an amplifier and it works with the radio but when i put in a cd the amp doesn't work. the receiver just plays with normal sound.


Verify your wire connections are correct. Keep in mind that if your amp is hooked up to the radios power antenna wire this is the problem. When you insert a cd the radio is designed to lower the antenna. If your amp is hooked up to the antenna wire the radio is shutting off the amp when you put in a cd Panasonic does this on most of all their units. You may have to hook your amp up to a separate switch to turn the amp off and on or hook it to your ignitions acc wire, if you hook it up to your ignitions acc the amp will stay on as long as your key is on even if you turn off the radio.

I have the panasonic cq-c8303u radio and i would like to hook up the ipod to it. any tips?


You need to get the Direct Cable for iPod® (CA-DC300U) from panasonic. This allows you to plug in and control your ipod from your headunit. There is also the expansion module (CY-EM100U), however I am not sure if this is necessary if you have the Direct Cable. The Direct Cable might plug directly into the back of the headunit without the need for the expansion module. Check with the company before purchasing one or both. If the direct cable requires the expansion module, then get both, however, I think the direct cable works independent from the expansion module. Again, contact the company about this. The expansion module also lets you plug your ipod as well as other devices into your headunit, however I don't think it allows you to control them via the unit. I think if you want to control the ipod from your headunit, you just need the Direct Cable for Ipod®.

What Speakers?


Excellent choice on head unit (stereo). I NEVER had a bad panasonic. First, you MUST realize that you can blow a peaker 2 ways. 1st, by giving it too much power (not your issue as factory speakers can handle ANY deck power you may have (IE 4 x 50 watts etc.)

The 2nd way is by distortion. This is the MOST COMMON reason why speakers blow. You just ccan't play massive amounts of bass from a stereo. Your deck will distort and burn up the voice coil.

So, really anything would work. I sold Cadence (not in active business any more) and I will tell you, they CAN take abuse. UYou can check them out at www.cadencesound.com I'n not selling, jus recomending! You can check out my rides at http://www.cybersoundsaudio.com/cybersounds/vehiclepics.html and see what they are. The HURT/OLDS has componenet 51/4's giving they 15 wats RMS to each pair. Also took 1st in sound quality. Also have the sam pair in my van since 199!! Yeah, they last!

Take care,

Scooter stereo


As long as the battery is 12volts then it should be ok. Since you have verified that the yellow and red are wired to the positive terminal and the black is to ground, fuse blowing would indicate that there is an internal short in the unit. You need to open it up and follow the yellow wire where it leads to and check the surrounding components.

Does the fuse blow when just connected or when powering it up?

When you unhooked your deck it still had power going to it, you need to unplug your car battery and plug it back in that should reset the deck and get the error message to go away.
Good luck,

Panasonic cq-c8303u Car stereo problem


There is for sure a hook up problem my friend. There should be a memory wire that always has power to it even when the car or the ignition is off. Then there is a switched type wire that only comes on when the cars ignition is on. Check both of these wires in the car. Check the car wiring diagram to confirm this. To confirm the wiring in this vehicle, I Good Luck with this install. And if all else fails, don't take a chance and blow out the unit, take it to a pro to be installed. Good Luck found the right wiring diagram for your car. Confirm this wiring diagram with this one you have. Go here:http://www.the12volt.com/installbay/stereodetail/955.html
