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
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. Establish a location for the remote input jack (usually the underside of
the dashboard) if it is a feature of the radio. Anchor it in place using two self-tapping screws (M5x6). Do
not over-tighten screws. 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
2
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 6 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 of the Installation Instructions.
5. Mount the new radio assembly to the dashboard or center console using the reverse procedure of step 1.

If a problem should develop while operating the CD player, an error code (ER-1, ER-2, ER-3,
etc.) may appear on the display panel. This can indicate a number of problems 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 station near
you for further assistance.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
The radio section of your new sound system does not require any maintenance. We
recommend that 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:
! When cleaning the interior of the vehicle, do not get water or cleaning fluids on the unit.
! The CD player is a precision instrument and will not operate properly in extreme heat or cold.
In case of such conditions, wait until the interior temperature of the vehicle reaches a normal
temperature before using the player.
! 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.
! Never insert anything other than a 5" (12 cm) compact disc into the player as the mechanism
can be damaged by foreign objects.
! 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.
! When not using the disc player, always remove the compact disc. Do not leave an ejected
disc sitting in the disc slot as this can expose it to sunlight and other causes of damage.
! Do not attempt to open the unit chassis. There are no user serviceable parts or adjustments inside.
! When the vehicle warms up during 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.
! 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:
! Use only compact discs with the mark
.
! 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.
! Never use chemicals such as record sprays, household cleaners or thinner to clean compact
discs. Such chemicals can irreparably damage the disc’s surface.
! Discs should be kept in their storage cases when not in use.
! Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high temperatures or high humidity for extended periods.
14
! Do not stick paper, tape, or labels on the disc surfaces nor write on them with any type of marker.
