View Full Version : Stereo Problems

10-28-2006, 09:07 PM
I have the Clarion M5475 head and wired remote. The remote was not working when I purchased the boat and I recently ran across a good deal on a replacement (old style, M101RC). I worked for about 10 minutes today and then would not respond. I am now thinking the head unit must be going bad. Any ideas on troubleshooting before I look to replace the head unit?:confused:

Check the ground on the head unit and test it with the remote's cable disconnected from the head unit. If the cable is wet or has a short/open, you may see it work when the cable is not involved.

If you decide it is the head unit only that is the problem, you can replace the head unit with the newer Clarion M455 and still have nearly full functionality out of the factory remote. No adaptors needed. The only function that you lose is on the remote is the mute, but the pause button does still work when playing CD's.

99xstar, If you still have the remote, I'll take it off your hands. How much would the shipping be?

By the way - I just installed a M455 replacement this week. Everything works fine now.
