If the ignition switch is left in the “ACC” position, the accessory power will automatically turn off after a certain period of time and you will no longer be able to use the audio system. The accessory power comes on again if the ignition switch is turned from the “ACC” position. Refer to “ACC power autocutout function”.
► If a cellular phone is used inside the vehicle, it may create noise from the audio equipment.
This does not mean that anything is wrong with your audio equipment. In such a case, use the cellular phone at a place as far away as possible from the audio equipment.
► If foreign objects or water get into the audio equipment, or if smoke or a strange odour comes from it, immediately turn off the audio system. We recommend you to have it checked. Never try to repair it by yourself.
Avoid continuous usage without inspection by a qualified person.
