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 to prevent damage to the face and/or controls; use the Release (REL)
button to allow the panel to fold down. Then withdraw the panel from the mounting plate. 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 and test radio operation by referring to the Operating Instructions for
theunit.
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
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 M4 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 above.
5. Mount the new radio assembly to the dashboard or center console using the reverse procedure of step 1.
