the memories, the unit will automatically stop at each station for 5
seconds so each can be heard. If you have already set the pre-set
memories to your favorite stations, activating the Auto-Store
feature will erase those stations and enter the new strong stations.
This feature is most useful when traveling in a new area where you
are not familiar with the local stations.
bq STATION PRE-SET MEMORIES

addition, the visibility of the numbers on the LCD may
slightly decrease. The LCD read-out will return to normal
when the temperature increases to a normal range.
bs SPECTRUM ANALYZER DISPLAY
The Spectrum Analyzer Display feature incorporated in this unit
breaks down the audio frequency spectrum into 7 bands and

diode (L.E.D.) will flash when the panel is removed. The flashing
light serves as a visual warning to the would-be thief that the unit
has been disabled by removal of the front panel.
dl RE-SET BUTTON
A Re-Set button is located on the front of the chassis (front panel
must be removed to access the button). The re-set circuitry is
provided to protect the microprocessor circuitry and should only
be activated under the following circumstances as it will erase the
time and pre-set memories.
1. Upon initial installation after all wiring is completed.
2. After the position of the frequency step switch on the bottom of
the chassis has been changed.

straight onto the chassis and then press until the mechanism
locks it into place.
NOTES ON USE OF FRONT PANEL
1. Make sure the front panel is right-side-up when attaching it to
the chassis as it cannot be attached when up-side down.
2. Do not press very hard on the front panel when attaching it to
the chassis. No more than light to moderate pressure should
be needed.
3. When taking the front panel with you, please use the supplied
carrying case to protect the panel from dirt and damage. Make
sure there is no dust or dirt on the electrical terminals on the
back of the panel as this could cause intermittent operation or
other malfunctions.

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.

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:

playing surface (shiny side) with a soft cloth. Wipe in a straight

Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high temperatures or high
humidity for extended periods.
