I have the Clarion CMD4 in my 2006 X-15. It is getting power, but will not turn on. I have tried to do a hard reset. It makes a noise when doing this, but still does not come on. I have also tried disconnecting the remotes and no change.

Please help with any suggestions. I am running out of songs to sing and passengers dont think i am the next American Idol.

do the remote turn on? When you say not turn on you mean no display or buttons dont work either?

How do you know it is getting power?

The display nor any of the buttons work on the readio. Both remotes light up, but no reading. I have check with a test light to ensure power supply and also when I do hard reset, it makes a sounds like the CD is trying to do something.

The head unit has two power wires- the red is connected to switched ignition and the yellow is connected to a constant power source. If the display doesn't show anything, I would bet the yellow lead isn't powered.

I checked both the red and yellow with a test light and they both have power.

At the fuse holders, or at the head unit's plug?

At the head unit plug.

At the head unit plug.

I'd be tempted to remove it and open the case to look for any signs of moisture or other damage. You never know if spiders crawled in and built a nest.

As far as the signing, it's your boat. Make them suffer.
