" Error DC" on Pajero Sound system display

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I drive a Pajero 3.8l 2010 model with Rockford sound system. Today while starting the car, i heard a pop sound from my speakers and then noticed a message "Error DC" on the display of the sound system. There was no sound coming from the speakers and all the buttons on the radio where not functioning. After a couple of minutes some of the buttons started functioning but there was no sound. I turned off the vehicle for a minute and restarted. The same issue. However the bluetooth microphone was working all the while.

 

At the gas station I turned off my vehicle for a few minutes and then restarted the car, and things were working back as normal. Since then I restarted the car a couple of times and have had no issues.

 

But I was wondering if this "Error DC" is a warning sign that something in the audio system might break down very soon and should I be taking some precaution? Anyone experienced this issue before?

Error DC means there’s a short circuit somewhere. Could be a problem with a speaker or the head unit itself. If it isn’t happening regularly it will be hard to track down. If it is happening a lot, you can start by disconnecting the speakers one by one and see which one is causing the problem. If it still happens after that, it’s probably the head unit. At the minute, there’s not a lot you can do about it. Did water get in anywhere with the rain lately? Something to look at.

I'm guessing with an upgraded sound system on the top line jero, you probably have a factory fitted amp somewhere too. Have a look around that too. See everything is plugged in properly. Check all audio related fuses too.

An update, this morning again when I started the car I got a Error DC message. After driving for about 20 mins, I stopped and turned on the car, that time the radio was again working fine. Is it a case of some moisture ingress which disappears after some time?
