Clarion multi changer

Post by seanrx » 05 Jul 2018, 12:01

Any advice on how to get power to it?
There is a bulb on front, which isn't lit up.
How to fix and where to start?
I assume the fuse box under the glove box.

Car model & year (VIN better still) and the Clarion model would help for a start. There are several Clarion CD-changer units and only some are compatible with CAN car electrical systems - so getting the right one is important, but assuming you have, we need the VIN to determine the head unit you have and whether there is already the wiring there or not.

The CD changers are generally powered via the vehicle's head unit and the CD-Changers were (on the C5 at least) stored wither under the front Passenger seat or in the boot (saloon). If under the seat, there will be a bracket and possibly the wiring connector already there for connection - but on the C5 they MUST be the correct one to work wit the multiplexed system.
