Detaching the front panel
You can detach the front panel of this unit to
protect the unit from being stolen.
If you turn the ignition switch to the OFF
position without removing the front panel, the
caution alarm will beep for a few seconds.
If you connect an optional amplifier and do not
use the built-in amplifier, the beep sound will be
CD/MD playback or radio reception stops
(the key illumination and display remain on).
* If your car has no ACC position on the ignition
switch, be sure to turn the unit off by pressing
(OFF) for 2 seconds to avoid car battery drain.
Press (OPEN), then slide the front
panel to the right, and gently pull out
the left end of the front panel.
• If you detach the panel while the unit is still turned
on, the power will turn off automatically to prevent
the speakers from being damaged.
• Do not drop or put excessive pressure on the front
panel and its display window.
• Do not subject the front panel to heat/high
temperature or moisture. Avoid leaving it in a parked
car or on a dashboard/rear tray.
