Gl1100 Clarion radio wiring!

Post by Bblake81 »

On the clarion radio FM unit there is a brown 2 pole connector that connects to the controller. When I hook those 2 together as stated in the manual the voltage drops to 6 volts. What does those 2 wires do on that connector and which piece is bad the FM module or controller? The FM module powers on and changes stations but there is no sound from the power amplifier. I thought maybe the amplifier was bad so I took it out of the circuit but the voltage still drops when that connector is hooked up.

Call sierra electronics in Troy Oh.

They are the only ones who still work on these dinosaurs. They will answer questions and they do know what they are talking about.
