Clarion E950 - original R/C - Wiring

Post by DKWW2000 » Sun Jun 26, 2016 4:51 pm

I am trying to identify the wires exiting from the original E950 Clarion R/C.
Some have labels (speakers conections) the others do not, some may be obvious but I do not want to guess the others.
Does anyone have a original User manual with wiring diagram (hp)

It is the Yellow & Blue, I think the blue might be for a Graphic Equaliser, the yellow is marked "Seek"?

Blue normally activate the power antenna
Seek Start remote control of the channel search normally an extern switch.
Yellow is the Input from the illumination Instruments.

This radio/cassette wasn't offered in Australia as far as I know - but I recall seeing a similar model on JDM cars. In Australia, we got the full equaliser and fader/balancer system on our Deluxe and Limited models. Our sport model had a single headunit but it was a twin-shaft style Pioneer unit.

The basic head unit is shown in the AU/UK wiring diagrams though from memory. The equaliser was hooked up via a DIN cable, not wire and there were 2 amps: front and rear. The wiring direct to speakers is sitting in the factory harness though, which is shared with UK cars. Unfortunately I left my books at the workshop when working on my car. I'll be heading out again soon and I'll take a look for you.

Ian,

If you are up for scanning it, I'd be interested in a copy.

looking at it, there are only 3 wires to worry about

Black = ground
Blue = switched live
Red = Permanent live

I've uploaded a pdf scan of this manual to my Google Drive, it can be viewed or downloaded form here...
