The basic safety guidelines set out below are to be
observed when installing the car kit.
Note that the instructions in this installation guide are
general guidelines that apply for the installation of the car
kit in an automobile. However, due to the wide variety of car
types and models available on the market, this guide cannot
consider the individual technical requirements relevant for
any particular vehicle. Contact the vehicle manufacturer for
further detailed information about the vehicle in question.
Modern automotive systems include on-board computers
where key vehicle parameters are stored. Improper
disconnection of the car battery may cause loss of data,
requiring extensive effort for re-initialization of the system.
If you have any concerns, contact your car dealer before any
Make sure that the car ignition is off and disconnect the car
battery before beginning with the installation work and
ensure that it cannot be reconnected inadvertently.
Do not smoke when working on the car. Make sure that
there is no source of fire or flame nearby.
The car kit should not be installed in the head impact area.
Take care not to cause damage to electrical cables, fuel or
brake lines or safety equipment during installation work.
Ensure cables are placed so that they are not subjected to
mechanical wear and tear. Do not place cables under car
seats or over sharp edges.
All equipment must be mounted so that it does not interfere
with the operation of the vehicle. Make sure not to impact
the steering or braking systems or other key systems
essential for proper operation of the car when installing car
kit equipment. Check to make sure that deployment of the
airbag is not blocked or impaired in any way.
RF signals may affect improperly installed or inadequately
shielded electronic systems in motor vehicles (for example,
electronic fuel injection systems, electronic anti-skid
braking systems, electronic speed control systems, airbag
systems). Should you note a fault or change in the operation
of such a system, contact your car dealer.
The car kit may only be used at an operating voltage of 12 V
with a negative-ground system. Failure to observe this
requirement may result in damage to the electronic system
of the vehicle.
Do not operate your car kit off the car battery for a longer
period of time, that is, with the engine switched off, as this
may cause your battery to run dry.
