Stereo not working


Hey guys.
Anyone know if there is an internal fuse to the Nissan cd stereo unit.
And, where the power comes into the unit.
I have 12v at the red wire, both fuses are ok, but the unit is now working at all.
The fuse in the engine bay under the air intake is ok and the one on the drivers side kick panel is also good.
Any ideas...

Not sure about the duplicate post, cant explain that one.

Re: Stereo not working


just lookin at the one pulled out of mine (series 2) there is no fuse visible and from my electronics experience i doubt there would be an internal fuse.
do you have the ignition power coming in as well? cant remember what colour the wire is but there is a constant power (which it sounds like you have) and one coming from the accessories (when you turn the key).

yeah but... emoticon
internally there is more than likely a fuse on the card. Not necessarily hanging out the back like aftermarket head units.
Not saying I know for sure......but I have seen it before.
Use a 12v/24v test light instead of a multimetre to check current as well as voltage in the loom and fuses..check your earth as well.
hope this helps

Re: Stereo not working


have just pulled the heatsink and top cover off my unit and i can confirm that there is no fuse internally. I didnt want to strip it down any further due to components soldered to the side casing (earthing). Hope that rules out one possibility.

please dont pull yours apart unless you are working "electrostatically safe" as you can cause more damage to your unit.

you could try getting a fused lead straight from the battery to power and then ground the unit and supply power to the remote, just to see if the unit will light up. alternately try the unit in another exy?

Re: Stereo not working


Hi Brett,

Just pulled the back off my unit (T30 Ti = 6 stack cd/tape/radio) and I could not see an onboard fuse.

As for the wiring...
Orange is 0V
Purple is Batt +ve
Red is Acc +ve

You will need both purple and red 12V for the unit to work.

Batt +ve comes from 15A fuse #32 in the engine bay fuse & link block
Acc +ve comes from 10A fuse #4 in the cabin fuse block

Re: Stereo not working


Something else to check for - that the frame of the stereo unit is earthed. With all the rough stuff you've been in, there might be a (slim) possibility the chassis of the stereo doesn't have a good earth.

In saying that though, I am sure most stereos (at least they have in the past) been earthed through the mounting brackets, and not a dedicated wire back to part of the wiring loom or other part of the vehicle chassis, so for a bad earth, the stereo would need to be virtually flopping around in it's DIN hole!

Rich,

One of the 4 screws used to secure the head unit in place, is the earthing point.

Brett: Have you checked the harness at the back of the head-unit? Maybe it has come loose and got disconnected after the last off-road trip.

Re: Stereo not working


Hey guys.

 Thanks for the quick replies, certainly gave me some things to check out last night.

 At about 11pm last night, I ended up noticing that the top drivers side attachment screw, is also the main earthing point. And as mentioned, the vibrations had loosened this screw a bit, causing a bad earth.''

 Again Jalal you were spot on.

 So now all screwed back in, with a dab of silicon to stop it occurring again.

 Again, thanks.
