To prevent injury and/or fire, take the following precautions:
• Insert the unit all the way until it is fully locked in place. Otherwise it may fly out of place during collisions and other jolts. • When extending the ignition, battery or ground cables, make sure to use automotivegrade cables or other cables with an area of 0.75mm2 (AWG18) or more to prevent cable deterioration and damage to the cable coating. • To prevent short circuits, never put or leave any metallic objects (e.g., coins or metal tools) inside the unit. • If the unit starts to emit smoke or strange smells, turn off the power immediately and consult your Kenwood dealer. • Make sure not to get your fingers caught between the faceplate and the unit. • Be careful not to drop the unit or subject it to strong shock. The unit may break or crack because it contains glass parts. • Do not touch the liquid crystal fluid if the LCD is damaged or broken due to shock. The liquid crystal fluid may be dangerous to your health or even fatal. If the liquid crystal fluid from the LCD contacts your body or clothing, wash it off with soap immediately.

2CAUTION
To prevent damage to the machine, take the following precautions:
• Make sure to ground the unit to a negative 12V DC power supply. • Do not open the top or bottom covers of the unit. • Do not install the unit in a spot exposed to direct sunlight or excessive heat or humidity. Also avoid places with too much dust or the possibility of water splashing. • Do not subject the faceplate to excessive shock, as it is a piece of precision equipment. • When replacing a fuse, only use a new one with the prescribed rating. Using a fuse with the wrong rating may cause your unit to malfunction. • To prevent short circuits when replacing a fuse, first disconnect the wiring harness. • Do not place any object between the faceplate and the unit. • During installation, do not use any screws except for the ones provided. The use of improper screws might result in damage to the main unit. • Do not apply excessive force to the moving faceplate. Doing so will cause damage or malfunction. • Do not apply excessive force to the open faceplate or place objects on it. Doing so will cause damage or breakdown.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
You cannot connect the unit directly to the following CD automatic changers. For users who want to use older changers with the unit, follow the directions below according to the type of changer you own: • KDC-C200 / KDC-C300 / KDC-C400 Use the extension cable and the control box attached to the CD changer, and the optional CA-DS100 converter cable. • KDC-C301 / KDC-C600 / KDC-C800 / KDCC601 / KDC-C401 Use the extension cable attached to the CD changer, and the optional CA-DS100 converter cable. • KDC-C100 / KDC-C302 / C205 / C705 / non-Kenwood CD changers Cannot be used with this model.
