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. 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, recheck 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
2
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
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 unsnap 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 of the Universal Installation Procedure.
5. Mount the new radio assembly to the dashboard or center console using the reverse procedure of step 1.

be needed.
3. When attaching the front panel, make
sure the right side is correctly engaged
before pressing the left side to lock it
into position.
4. When taking the front panel with you,
please use the supplied carrying case
to protect the panel from dirt and

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

! 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 hot 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.
! 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:
