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 at1-800-645-4994.

UNIVERSAL INSTALLATION PROCEDURE USING MOUNTING SLEEVE

1.Activate panel fold-down,and remove the detachable front panel, if it is attached to the chassis, by grasping the release latch on the middle underside of the panel and pulling the panel assembly straight out. The mounting plate will return to the upright position within 3 seconds. Slide the mounting sleeve off of the chassis. If it is locked into position, use the removal tools (supplied) to disengage it.

2.Check the dashboard opening size by sliding the mounting sleeve into it. If the opening is not large enough, 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 the unit.

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 DAMAGECOMPONENTSINSIDETHECHASSIS.

4.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.

bp LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY PANEL

The Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) panel displays the frequency, time, and activated functions.

NOTE: It is a characteristic of LCD panels that, if subjected to cold temperatures for an extended period of time, they may take longer to illuminate than under normal conditions. In addition, the visibility of the numbers on the LCD may slightly decrease. The LCD readout will return to normal when the temperature increases to a normal range.

bq LEVEL METER DISPLAY

This display consists of a five-bargraph which provides a visual representation of the volume level and the left and right channel audio signal levels. The volume level is represented by the two outer bar graphs and the center graph. As the volume is increased, the number of illuminated segments will increase. The left and right channels are represented by the respective inner bar graphs whose illuminated segments increase and decrease as a function of the signal strength applied to the left and right channels. As the signal increases, the number of illuminated segments will increase andvice-versa.

br MODE SELECTOR (MODE)

This button is used to select the radio or CD player playback mode. Each press of the button will select a different mode as indicated on the display panel.
