Parrot CK3100 FAQ’s

Parrot CK3100 FAQ’s

Parrot CK3100: Common problems/FAQ’s and their solutions.

Here are some of the common problems that occur with a Parrot CK3100 and their easy-to-fix solutions:

1. Blank screen/display and beeping:

If the display has gone blank on the screen, even if it is still illuminated, and the CK3100 is beeping when the ignition is switched on, then it is likely you have lost communication from the blue junction box of the Parrot and the display. This is often caused by the display cable having slightly pulled apart a connector in the rear of the display. With a small flat screwdriver you should try to carefully push the connector back together (see below).

2. Callers are hearing a lot of noise on the call. What can I do to fix that?

• Most installers generally get the best audio quality by placing the microphone above the rear-view mirror, pointed directly at the mouth of the user.

• The microphone should not have any obstructions between it and the user.

• Make sure that no vents or speakers are directed toward the microphone.

• Road and drive train vibrations in the steering column and dashboard may make them unsuitable locations for the microphone.

• The microphone sensitivity may be turned up too high. This can be turned down by going into Settings –> Volume –> Microphone volume – and then turning the dial to adjust as necessary.

• Convertible top and some sunroof equipped vehicles may require adding a common foam windscreen to the microphone.

Watch the unboxing of a CK3100 to ensure you aren’t missing any vital components:

3. How can I reset the car kit?

The kit does not have a reset button, but can be cleared in two ways:

• The kit can be cleared by deleting all paired devices.

• The kit will be cleared by doing a software update.

4. My car kit keeps losing all of its information after I turn my car off. What’s wrong?

This may be one of two issues:

• Check to make sure that the fuse on the battery line is still good and the battery line connections are still good.

• Check to make sure that the battery line is in fact connected to the battery and not also tied in with the ignition line.

If you have a different problem or find that the solutions above do not work, please call us on 03332007244 (Mon-Fri, 9am-5.30pm) and ask to speak to one of our Parrot accredited engineers.

First Class! Dave and the team are fantastic. The fit on our first Mobile Bike Service and Repair Van could not be any better. From the very beginning, through the design process, all the way to completion I cannot fault a single thing. As I write this, our second van is being fitted to exactly the same specification and the third van is on the way. Long may this partnership continue!

Very helpful and patient with an older guy who was a bit nervous ordering from a company I didn't know. The product I wanted wasn't on their website but I thought it worth asking and they had it at a good price. It came the next day and worked perfectly.

I highly recommend Lee, Dave and the Team at Vehicle Accessories after they did a fantastic job for a one off bespoke van fit for my business. I approached them with a rather radical high concept idea, Dave did a great job taking notes from my extensive brief. He made a great effort to listen and take notes along the way making sure he understood and made suggestions for materials which really led to a much better end product. A particular highlight was a suggestion for them to fabricate a wall mounted Steal Mesh cage system for my equipment which far exceeded my expectations of quality and engineering. During the planning stage and construction suggestions were made to change materials and systems for what they thought would work better for the project as it developed. The end product was perfect and done to a very high standard, it really turned out better than I ever hoped for. Communication throughout was excellent with regular updates, fast responses and easy dialogue when confirming details or discussing changes. Changes were managed quickly and efficiently throughout the build with a great deal of flexibility and professionalism. Even though I was just having just one bespoke build being done for myself I felt highly valued as a customer and treated with the same level of respect and attentiveness as someone ordering a fleet. The quality of work and customer service will certainly mean I’ll be coming back for my next van project.

I can’t recommend Lee and his team of wizards enough. They fitted the gas with all the safety requirements and modified / adapted several parts of the electrics. They went above and beyond my expectations - I won’t hesitate to use them again.

What can say.... the order process was simple, prices competitive and when it was realised that I had ordered 2 incompatible parts I got a call to check and recify the order. Collection was easy and the install team did a quick, neat job. Job done....until next time thank you

Dave, Lee and the team at VA moved crates from my old van to a new one. Easy to communicate with, quick turn around, met all my requests, made good suggestions (such as putting in a waterproof floor) and did an excellent job. Highly recommend.

Big thanks to Dave and the rest of the Vehicle Accessories team. They've done a great job fitting security locks and a floor in my new van. They also moved over my racking and interior lights from my previous van while going out of there way to make it all fit. Excellent service, very efficient and professional. Highly recommended and nice people to deal with. Thanks Miles Ashton Gas
