Just purchased my first MC.... 2003 X10, MCX; love it; the Clarion XMD3 stereo is quirky... when I flip the key to Accessory (to the left), the stereo plays no problem... when I go to start the engine, the stereo shows it has power (face lights up) but no sound; wait a few minutes and sometimes it comes on all of a sudden; occassionally, I turn on the tower lights or the heater and the sound will come on??!! Any ideas?

Bad Ground?

bad ground or loose wiring harness ... my stereo went on the fritz last weekend, turns out it was the harness the plugged into the breakers that was not seating all the way
