INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

 

 

 

This unit is designed for installation in cars, trucks, and vans with an existing radio opening. In many cases, a

 

special installation kit will be required to mount the radio to the dashboard. These kits are available at electronics

 

supply stores and car stereo specialist shops. Always check the kit application before purchasing to make sure the kit

 

works with your vehicle. If you need a kit but cannot find it available, call our toll-free“HELP” line(1-800-645-4994).

 

UNIVERSAL INSTALLATION PROCEDURE USING MOUNTING SLEEVE

 

1.

Remove the detachable front panel, if it is attached to the chassis, by pushing the RELEASE button. Slide the

INSTALLATION

 

mounting sleeve off of the chassis. If it is locked into position, use the removal tools (supplied) to disengage it.

2.

Checkthedashboardopeningsizebyslidingthemountingsleeveintoit. Iftheopeningisnotlargeenough,carefully

 

 

 

cut or file as necessary until the sleeve easily slides into the opening. Do not force the sleeve into the opening

 

 

or cause it to bend or bow. Check that there will be sufficient space behind the dashboard for the radio chassis.

 

3.

Locate the series of bend tabs along the top, bottom, and sides of the mounting sleeve. With the sleeve

 

 

fully inserted into the dashboard opening, bend as many of the tabs outward as necessary so that the

 

 

sleeve is firmly secured to the dashboard.

 

4.

Place the radio in front of the dashboard opening so that the wiring can be brought through the mounting

 

 

sleeve. Follow the wiring diagram carefully and make certain all connections of the wiring harness are

 

 

secure and insulated with wire nuts or electrical tape to insure proper operation of the unit. After completing

 

 

the wiring connections, attach the front panel and turn the unit on to confirm operation (ignition switch must

 

 

be “on”). If unit does not operate, re-checkall wiring until problem is corrected. Once proper operation is

 

 

achieved, turn off the ignition switch and proceed with final mounting of the chassis.

 

5.

Carefully slide the radio into the mounting sleeve making sure it is right-side-upuntil it is fully seated and

 

 

the spring clips lock it into place.

 

6.

Attach one end of the perforated support strap (supplied) to the screw stud on the rear of the chassis using

 

 

the hex nut provided. Fasten the other end of the perforated strap to a secure part of the dashboard either

 

 

above or below the radio using the screw and hex nut provided. Bend the strap to position it as necessary.

 

CAUTION: The rear of the radio must be supported with the strap to prevent damage to the dashboard from

 

 

the weight of the radio or improper operation due to vibration.

7.Re-attachthe front panel to the chassis and test radio operation by referring to the Operating Instructions for theunit.

INSTALLATION USING KITS

1.If your vehicle requires the use of an installation kit to mount this radio, follow the instructions included with the installation kit to attach the radio to the mounting plate supplied with the kit.

2.Wire and test the radio as described in Step 4 above.

3.Install the radio/mounting plate assembly to the sub-dashboardaccording to the instructions of the installation kit.

4.Attach the support strap to the radio and dashboard as described in Step 6 above.

5.Replace the dashboard trim panel.

ISO INSTALLATION PROCEDURE

This unit has threaded holes in the chassis side panels which may be used with the original factory mounting brackets of some Toyota, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Isuzu, Hyundai and Honda vehicles to mount the radio to the dashboard. Please consult with your local car stereo specialist shop for assistance on this type of installation.

1.Remove the existing factory radio from its dashboard or center console mounting. Save all hardware and brackets as they will be used to mount the new radio.

2.Carefully un-snapthe plastic frame from the front of the new radio chassis. Remove and discard the frame.

3.Remove the factory mounting brackets and hardware from the existing radio and attach them to the new radio. CAUTION: DO NOT EXCEED M5 X 8 MM MAXIMUM SCREW SIZE.

LONGER SCREWS MAY TOUCH AND DAMAGE COMPONENTS INSIDE THE CHASSIS.

14. Wire the new radio to the vehicle as per step 4 above.

5.Mount the new radio assembly to the dashboard or center console using the reverse procedure of step 1.

cnAUXILIARY (AUX IN) JACK

The radio is equipped with an auxiliary audio input jack which can be interfaced to an external audio source. The jack is compatible with most CD and cassette players or an MP3 digital audio playback unit. When the external source is connected, only that audio media is played by the radio.

NOTE: If the external audio jack is used while the CD player is operational, the sound from the CD Player will be muted. However, the CD disc will continue to spin. We recommend that when the external audio jack function is used, either the radio be in the tuner mode, or the Compact Disc

be ejected from the player.

coTHEFT-DETERRENTLED

thief that the unit has been disabled by removal of the front panel.

cpRESET BUTTON

A RESET button is located on the front of the chassis (front panel must be removed to access the button). The re-setcircuitry is provided to protect the microprocessor circuitry and should only be activated under the following circumstances:

1.Upon initial installation after all wiring is completed.

2.If there is a malfunction of any of the switches on the unit or the CD player, pressing the RESET button may clear the system and return to normal operation.

cq FRONT PANEL RELEASE BUTTON
