I talk to the factory Tech a few days ago, He told me that they have 3 replacment parts now available for those of us with the Stereo to Mono problem! He gave me the 3 part No. which are #28243-5Z100 /#28243-7S010 and #4NBX-18812AD. The last part No. looks like a ford part No. :huh:
But those are the 3 No. he gave me. He said that at this point replacing the radio's has mad know differents in the sound, but that those 3 replacement parts will fix 80 to 90% of those with the problem. He said they are STILL Working on getting it better! They want 100% FIX'S on This! I thank him for the part Numbers. And told him that I'm going to wait untill they have the final Fix out. He said Nissan WANTS TO GET THIS RIGHT! Just talking to the tech, I feel alot better about my radio problem and NISSAN! As they CARE about all of us with these bad radio's! I would just say to everybody to please be patient on this! They are working real hard to fix this! And they Will.
The head unit is the actual radio. Rockford does not make head units-just speakers and amps. The radio (head unit) is made by Clarion.jeff7777 said:I contacted the radio manufacturer (rockford) and they stated that the problem is with the "head unit" and that Nissan is working on it... anybody know what the "head unit" on a radio is and what it is supposed to do?
WaitingforTitan.....waitingfortitan said:Because this radio thing is driving me crazy and I am impatient I made a trip to the dealer to have them look at the radio today. They agreed that it sounds horrible in FM, wrote it up and called the "Tech Line". The dealer tech said he told the factory tech that he had a problem with the radio and the factory tech was able to describe the problem without the dealer tech ellaborating. He verified what others have been told by saying they are in fact working on a fix.
I also brought your post with the part numbers you where given and the factory tech (Rob) said that they where "bogus numbers" and that they do not have anything to fix the problem now however are working on it and will post a bulletin to the dealers with the fix when they have it. The dealer tech assured me that he believed that Nissan was working on it and would fix it however he was unable to give any type of time line. He said that they get the bullitins every 15 days.
At least I feel better than when I called the 1-800-Nissan1 line and was told they had never heard of the problem.
I would advise anyone with the radio problem to go to their dealers also. I feel like at least the problem with my radio was aknowledged that in fact there is a problem and reported to the people that can get something done rather than the 800 number that basicaly told me sorry to hear about that. They assured me when they recieve the bulletin that they will call me.
Sorry, but Rockford DOES make head (or source) units! Not great ones, but none the less.jd1973 said:The head unit is the actual radio. Rockford does not make head units-just speakers and amps. The radio (head unit) is made by Clarion.
No it doesn't play MP3's. That is what the input jack is for. Plug your MP3 player into that and press AUX.goathead said:that link did not take me to the radio that looked like mine. regardless, i can listento cds until this radio thing gets fixed.
just wondering, does it play mp3 cds. i stuck one in and it didnt work but it could have been one of my wma cds.
The 3 Parts and Numbers ARE NOT BOGUS!!!
You can order 2 of them right from your dealer right now!! The other part comes from a different company. And you will be able to get it from your Nissan dealer at some point!
Part #28243-5Z100- is a FEEDER CABLE for an Ant. You can order it at your dealers parts counter.
Part #28243-7S010- is also for a FEEDER CABLE for the Ant. You also can order this part from your dealers part counter, but this part is on National Back order! So you will have to wait for it!
Part#4NBX-18812AD- IS NOT A Nissan part! It is the AMP Cable or Cables. And will come form the makers of the Radio-Amps! You will be able to get this part from your dealer but it first must come Clarion or RF. Nissan dose NOT make this PART. I was told all this on the phone by the Tech and that you will need ALL 3 of these PARTS. And that it will fix 80to 90% of the problems with the radio's going from Stereo to Mono. The people that are having the STATIC Problem's with there FM radio's seems to be LOSE Ant. Conections and Fittings! Just a retighting is needed for them. This is what he told me! I did give him another call after reading your post, he had already left for the day, so I left him a voice mail msg. to call me back with another up date on this. Should hear from him somtime next week. I'll let you all know! My understanding from him was that they want to make sure this is going to work for ALL the Radio's! And also STILL Working on make it Better!!! Like I said, they dont have a Final FIX Out Yet. And I'm going to wait untill then. I do not want to take my truck apart any more times then what are needed to fix this!!

This is not a Nissan part, but they have obvoiusly teamed up with Rockford to provide head units. This is ultimately Nissans problem, as they sell the vehicle and everything in it, but lets hope that Rockford & Nissan are working together! Nissan is not in the stereo biz!
