Verify that the vehicle electrical components function, including: power windows,
power door locks, air conditioning, lights, etc.
Identify the polarity of the dome light circuit and set the switch on the bottom of the
overhead monitor housing.
Test fit the location of the overhead monitor system to ensure it will not interfere with
the operation of the vehicle.
If applicable, verify that the monitor, when mounted, will not interfere with the operation
of the sun roof.
Carefully mark the location with masking tape.
Lower the vehicle’s headliner down to see if a roof support beam is available to screw
the mounting bracket. If a support beam is not available, use a 3/4-inch piece of
plywood cut to the appropriate size. Attach the plywood to the roof of the vehicle using
silicone. Allow for adequate drying time.
Determine the location of any additional audio/video sources.
Disconnect the negative battery terminal before making any wiring connections.

5. INSTALLATION AND WIRING
CAUTION!
Do not open the case. There are no serviceable parts inside.
If you drop anything into the unit during installation, consult with
your Clarion Dealer or an authorized Clarion service center.
MOUNTING AND WIRING PRECAUTIONS
The VT1010E should be mounted in the ceiling of the vehicle. The front panel controls
should be easily accessible from the rear seat. In addition:

This unit is exclusively for vehicles with a negative ground, 12V power supply.

This unit may be in installed with additional mobile audio components, such as a digital
camera.

Always use great care when attaching anything to a vehicle. Check clearances on both
sides of the planned installation before drilling any holes or installing any screws.

A good chassis ground connection is critical to minimize resistance and avoid noise
problems.

Use the shortest wire possible and securely connect it to the car chassis.

When routing RCA cables, keep them away from the power cables and output speaker
wires, engine, exhaust system, etc. Heat may damage wires.

If the fuse should blow, make sure that all connections are correct, the cables have not
caused a short circuit, and no wires are damaged. Then replace the fuse with a new
fuse of the same amperage value as the original fuse. When replacing a fuse, never let
the battery side touch any metal part or any other wire.

Never let disconnected cables or terminals touch metal on the car or any other
conducting material.

To prevent short circuits, do not remove the caps from unused terminals or from the
ends of unconnected cables.

Insulate unconnected wires with vinyl tape or other similar material.
WARNING!
To prevent short circuits during installation, disconnect the vehicle’s
negative (-) battery lead before making any power connections.
INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
The VT1010E replaces the car’s dome light. This section provides basic tips and
techniques to aid the installation. These are not vehicle specific, but should be used as
guidelines for performing the installation.
Set the polarity switch
1. Determine the polarity of the power system in the car. This information should be on a
vehicle specific diagram.
2. Locate the polarity switch on the back of the player (the side that will be attached to the
ceiling).
3. If the vehicle’s power supply requires negative polarity, slide this switch to the negative
(-) position. Otherwise, slide this switch to the positive (+) position.
VT1010E

5. INSTALLATION AND WIRING
CAUTION!
Make sure the switch is fully to one side or the other.
Do not attempt to configure this switch once the player is in position.
4.
Cut a one-inch hole in the headliner along the backside of the ceiling bracket for the
cables to pass through.
Install the ceiling bracket and cables
1. Disconnect and remove the original dome light.
2. Screw the metal mounting plate to the beam or plywood using the six ST4.2 x 16
screws.
Metal mounting plate showing screw position
Note:
Do not obscure the original dome light opening.
Connect cables
1. Pull out the original dome light’s power wire and signal/power cable through the
original dome light opening.
2. Place the rubber gasket on the player.

5. INSTALLATION AND WIRING
Plug in the power harness into the overhead monitor system in the following order:
ground wire, battery wire, ACC wire and door wire.
Note:
The red lead must be connected to the ACC or IGN wire to the ignition switch. If you do
not connect this wire properly, the battery will drain / discharge prematurely.
Install the monitor
1. Carefully hold the overhead monitor up to the metal mounting plate.
2. Screw in the four CM4 x 8 screws making sure the wires are not in the way.
