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. 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-check all 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-up until 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-attach the 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-dashboard according 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
1
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-snap the 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.
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.

ERROR
If a problem should develop while operating the CD player, an error code (ER-1, ER-2,

with the unit, including a mechanical error or an error in the microprocessor control of the
player. If an error code should appear, try ejecting and re-loading the disc into the player.
While the disc is out of the unit, make sure it is clean, undamaged, and loaded correctly
(label surface up). You may also try activating the RESET button on the unit, but this
will also erase the time and pre-set memories.
If the suggested measures do not solve the problem, contact an approved warranty

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
The radio section of your new sound system does not require any maintenance. We
recommend you keep this manual for reference on the many features found in this unit
as well as how to set the clock.
The compact disc player section also requires no routine maintenance, but proper
understanding of its use and handling will help you obtain maximum enjoyment of its
capabilities. The following points should be observed:
l When cleaning the interior of the vehicle, do not get water or cleaning fluids on the
unit.
l The CD player is a precision instrument and will not operate properly in extreme hot
or cold. In case of such conditions, wait until the interior temperature of the vehicle
reaches a normal temperature before using the player.
l If the temperature inside the player gets too hot, a protective circuit will automatically
stop play of the disc. In this case, allow the unit to cool off before operating the player
again.
l Never insert anything other than a 5" (12 cm) compact disc into the player as the
mechanism can be damaged by foreign objects.

l Do not attempt to use 3" (8 cm) CD-Single discs in this unit, either with or without
an adaptor, as damage to the player and/or disc may occur. Such damage will not
be covered by the Warranty on this product.
l When not using the disc player, always remove the compact disc.
l When the vehicle warms up during the cold weather or under damp conditions,
moisture may condense on the lens of the disc player. Should this occur, the player
will not operate properly until the moisture has evaporated.

l The unit is designed with a vibration dampening CD mechanism to minimize
interruption of disc play due to normal vibration in a moving vehicle. When driving on
very rough roads, however, occasional sound skips may occur. This will not scratch
or damage the disc and normal play will resume when the rough conditions cease.
HANDLING COMPACT DISCS
Dirt, dust, scratches, and warpage can cause skips in the playback and deterioration
of sound quality. Please follow these guidelines to take care of your compact discs:
l Use only compact discs with the mark:
l Fingerprints, dust, and dirt should be carefully wiped off the disc’s playing surface
(shiny side) with a soft cloth. Wipe in a straight motion from the inside to the outside
of the disc.
l Never use chemicals such as record sprays, household cleaners or thinner to clean
compact discs. Such chemicals can irreparably damage the disc’s surface.
l Discs should be kept in their storage cases when not in use.
l Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high temperatures or high humidity for
extended periods.
l Do not stick paper, tape, or labels on the disc surfaces nor write on them with any
type of marker.
CD-R PLAYBACK CAPABILITY
This model can play most CD-R media that contains audio programs.
Playback of CD-R depends on the conditions of the recording equipment and the
CD-R disc quality. In some cases, a CD-R disc cannot be played on this unit.
