Stereo Head Unit

Recommended Posts

crich

I bought the boat new in '09 and didn't use the stereo much.  I know have a 14 year old and a 12 year old so they use it constantly.  It completely stopped working yesterday.  Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement head unit?

I would love an answer to this also, my rockford fosgate head unit does not work!

Having dealt with this issue numerous times over many years I would check the connections for the stereo remote/head unit in the dash (which is what I am guessing you are talking about) to the POS RFX 3000 black box on the amp board. It is a pain to get behind to check, but I bet you will find your problem behind the amp board. I had all manner of connection problems until I soldered what I could and taped, heat shrink wrapped and strain releived ALL of the wires and connections on that thing. If you still want or have to replace the remote just search for that item on the net, MR55B IIRC.

It would certainly be worth checking with black, red and yellow wires into the BB for voltage., prior to gutting it. If it is deemed to be toast, check out:

I almost forgot. Start with checking the main power harness. You will see a bunch of wires, but the black, red, yellow and blue wires are the ones that are of concern. Over time the pencil lead thin connections in the harness heads were separating and not making a good connection. I fixed mine accordingly!
