Installation
Installation should only be performed by a qualified professional. Beware of sharp edges to avoid injury and exercise
caution when removing trims as they may break. The module should be placed at an accessible location to allow AUX cable
to be connected, such as in the glove box, the center console or under the front seat.
1 Pull vehicle into service bay and access radio/center console.
2 Disconnect both battery terminals. These cables must be disconnected during installation to ensure proper initialization
of the module when it is connected.
3 Before pulling out the radio, removing surrounding trims and screws. Most trims can be removed by carefully pulling on
the piece or using trim removal tools. Trim is usually held in place by snap-in clips.
4 The radio is held in place by a few bolts. To remove these a 10mm socket is usually needed. Consult your dealership if
additional information is needed on removing the radio.

Sleeve (Ground)
Ring (Right audio)
Tip (Left audio)
The interface is equipped with a 1/8” AUX jack connection to connect an auxiliary device, such as an MP3 player, DVD player
or other audio source. To access the AUX audio source, select the SOURCE function and press the next track to toggle
between SEL:AUX and SEL: IPOD .
1/8" mini stereo jack, not included
Making the adjustments
While listening to the auxiliary device, adjust the volume (gain), bass, mid and treble by turning the Tune dial or pressing
the Seek button. DISC/Preset 1-4 modes select what adjustment the Tune/Seek buttons perform. See illustration on page
30.
29
AUX audio source setting
The auxiliary input has settings for gain, bass, mid and treble in order to optimize sound.
Volume (Gain) should be adjusted if the audio level from the auxiliary device is too low or to high. If you hear distorted
audio while playing the auxiliary device, you need to reduce (-) the gain. If you notice that the audio is too quiet then the
gain setting should be increased (+). Default settings are "50" ("68" for gain) and values may be adjusted in increments
between 01-99. Bass, Mid and Treble should be adjusted to compensate for the acoustic presets of the radio.
Note: If you are using an AUX device that is using the vehicle’s power source and not its own battery, you may have to use a
GROUND-LOOP isolator to avoid grounding and engine noise.
