WARNING

WARNING

This symbol means important instructions.

Failure to heed them can result in serious injury or death.

DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.

Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock.

USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN REPLACING FUSES.

Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.

MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS.

Failure to make the proper connections may result in fire or product damage.

USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.

(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may result in fire, etc.

BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL.

Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due to electrical shorts.

DO NOT ALLOW CABLES TO BECOME ENTANGLED IN SURROUNDING OBJECTS.

Arrange wiring and cables in compliance with the manual to prevent obstructions when driving. Cables or wiring that obstruct or hang up on places such as the steering wheel, shift lever, brake pedals, etc. can be extremely hazardous.

DO NOT SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES.

Never cut away cable insulation to supply power to other equipment. Doing so will exceed the current carrying capacity of the wire and result in fire or electric shock.

DO NOT DAMAGE PIPE OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING HOLES.

When drilling holes in the chassis for installation, take precautions so as not to contact, damage or obstruct pipes, fuel lines, tanks or electrical wiring. Failure to take such precautions may result in fire.

DO NOT USE BOLTS OR NUTS IN THE BRAKE OR STEERING SYSTEMS TO MAKE GROUND CONNECTIONS.

Bolts or nuts used for the brake or steering systems (or any other safety-relatedsystem), or tanks should NEVER be used for installations or ground connections. Using such parts could disable control of the vehicle and cause fire etc.

DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS.

Doing so may cause heat to build up inside and may result in fire.

KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERIES OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.

Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed, consult a physician immediately.

2-EN

3-EN

DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WHICH MIGHT HINDER VEHICLE OPERATION, SUCH AS THE STEERING WHEEL OR SHIFT LEVER.

Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc. and results in serious accident.

DO NOT OPERATE ANY FUNCTION THAT TAKES YOUR ATTENTION AWAY FROM SAFELY DRIVING YOUR VEHICLE.

Any function that requires your prolonged attention should only be performed after coming to a complete stop. Always stop the vehicle in a safe location before performing these functions. Failure to do so may result in an accident.

KEEP THE VOLUME AT A LEVEL WHERE YOU CAN STILL HEAR OUTSIDE NOISE WHILE DRIVING.

Failure to do so may result in an accident.

MINIMIZE DISPLAY VIEWING WHILE DRIVING.

Viewing the display may distract the driver from looking ahead of the vehicle and cause an accident.

USE THIS PRODUCT FOR MOBILE 12V APPLICATIONS.

Use for other than its designed application may result in fire, electric shock or other injury.

CAUTION

This symbol means important instructions.

Failure to heed them can result in injury or material property damage.

HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY EXPERTS.

The wiring and installation of this unit requires special technical skill and experience. To ensure safety, always contact the dealer where you purchased this product to have the work done.

USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL THEM SECURELY.

Be sure to use only the specified accessory parts. Use of other than designated parts may damage this unit internally or may not securely install the unit in place. This may cause parts to become loose resulting in hazards or product failure.

ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR PINCHED BY A SHARP METAL EDGE.

Route the cables and wiring away from moving parts (like the seat rails) or sharp or pointed edges. This will prevent crimping and damage to the wiring. If wiring passes through a hole in metal, use a rubber grommet to prevent the wire’s insulation from being cut by the metal edge of the hole.

DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH MOISTURE OR DUST.

Avoid installing the unit in locations with high incidence of moisture or dust. Moisture or dust that penetrates into this unit may result in product failure.

HALT USE IMMEDIATELY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS.

Failure to do so may cause personal injury or damage to the product. Return it to your authorized Alpine dealer or the nearest Alpine Service Centre for repairing.

WARNING

PRECAUTIONS

Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–)battery post before installing yourDAI-C990.This will reduce any chance of damage to the unit in case of ashort-circuit.

Be sure to connect the color coded leads according to the diagram. Incorrect connections may cause the unit to malfunction or damage to the vehicle’s electrical system.

When making connections to the vehicle’s electrical system, be aware of the factory installed components (e.g. on-boardcomputer). Do not tap into these leads to provide power for this unit. When connecting theDAI-C990to the fuse box, make sure the fuse for the intended circuit of theDAI-C990has the appropriate amperage. Failure to do so may result in damage to the unit and/ or the vehicle. When in doubt, consult your ALPINE dealer.

The DAI-C990uses femaleRCA-typejacks for connection to other units (e.g. amplifier) having RCA connectors. You may need an adaptor to connect other units. If so, please contact your authorized ALPINE dealer for assistance.

Be careful not to cause a short by jamming the cable into the computer when connecting. It can cause a fault.

Alpine accepts no responsibility for damaged or lost data in your computer etc., even if data etc., is damaged or lost while using this product.

Wiring Connections

Improper wiring connections could cause serious damage to your audio system. Be sure you:

1.DO NOT connect (–)wires from left and right speakers together.

2.DO NOT ground any speaker wires.

3.DO NOT run wires where they may be pinched or cut.

4.DO NOT leave bare speaker terminals ex posed. They may contact the vehicle chassis and cause a short.

Fuse

When replacing the fuse(s), the replacement fuse must be of the same amperage as shown on the fuse holder. If the fuse(s) blows more than once, carefully check all electrical connections for shorted circuitry. Also have your vehicle’s voltage regulator checked. Do not attempt to repair the unit yourself; return it to your Alpine dealer or nearest Alpine Service Station for servicing.

Temperature

In order to ensure proper performance, be sure the temperature in your vehicle is above 14°F(–10°C)and below 140°F (60°C) before turning your unit on. Good air circulation is essential to prevent internal heatbuild-upin the unit.

Installation Location

Make sure the DAI-C990will not be installed in a location subjected to:

Direct sun and heat

High humidity and water

Excessive dust

Excessive vibrations

Maintenance

If you have problems, do not attempt to repair the unit yourself. Return it to your Alpine dealer or the nearest Alpine Service Station for servicing.

PLACE OF PURCHASE:

To prevent external noise from entering the audio system.

Locate the unit and route the leads at least 10 cm away from the car harness.

Keep the battery power leads as far away from other leads as possible.

Connect the ground lead securely to a bare metal spot (remove any paint, dirt or grease if necessary) of the car chassis.

If you add an optional noise suppressor, connect it as far away from the unit as possible. Your Alpine dealer carries various noise suppressors. Contact them for further information.

Your Alpine dealer knows best about noise prevention measures so consult your dealer for further information.
