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 at

1-800-645-4994.

UNIVERSAL INSTALLATION PROCEDURE USING MOUNTING SLEEVE

1.RemovethefrontpanelfromtheunitbypressingtheRELeasebuttonatthetoprightcorner; thenslidethe 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, turn the unit on to confirm operation (ignition switch must be “on”). If unit does not operate, recheck all wiring until problem is corrected.

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 provided. Bend the strap to position it as necessary.

CAUTION: The rear of the radiomust be supported with the strap to prevent damage to the dashboard from the weight of the radio or improper operation due to vibration.

7.Test radio operation by referring to the Operating Instructions.

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.
