E N G L I S H CQ-DF302W 21 E N G L I S H 11 CQ-DF302W 20 Installation Guide (Continued) E N G L I S H 12 Speakers Connect the speaker wires. See the wiring diagram (➡ pages 25, 26) for the proper hookups. Follow the diagram carefully to avoid damaging the speak- ers and the stereo unit. The speakers used must be able to handle more than 45 W of audio power. If using an optional audio amplifier, the speakers should be able to han- dle the maximum amplifier output power. Speakers with low input ratings can be damaged. Speaker impedance should measure 4–8 ≠, which is typi- cally marked on most speakers. Lower or higher impedance speakers will affect output and can cause both speaker and stereo unit damage. Motor Antenna Connect the car motor antenna lead to the dark blue motor antenna relay control lead. Battery Connect the yellow battery lead to the correct radio wire or to the battery fuse port on the fuse block. Antenna Connect the antenna by plugging the antenna lead into the antenna receptacle. Equipment Connect any optional equipment such as an ampli- fier, according to the instructions furnished with the equipment. Leave about 30 cm of distance be- tween the speaker leads/amplifier unit and the an- tenna/antenna extension cord. Read the operating and installation instructions of any equipment you will connect to this unit. Power Connect the red power lead to the correct car radio wire or to the appropriate fuse port on the fuse block. If the stereo unit functions properly with all these connections made, disconnect the wires and pro- ceed to the final installation. ❐ Final Installation ❐ Final Checks Lead Connections Connect all wires, making sure that each connec- tion is insulated and secure. Bundle all loose wires and fasten them with tape so they will not fall down later. Now insert the stereo unit into the mounting collar. Congratulations! After making a few final checks, you’re ready to enjoy your new auto stereo system. 1. Make sure that all wires are properly connected and insulated. 2. Make sure that the stereo unit is securely held in the mounting collar. 3. Turn on the ignition to check the unit for proper operation. If you have difficulties, consult your nearest author- ized professional installer for assistance. ❐ Preparation ≥We strongly recommend that you wear gloves for installation work to protect yourself from injuries. ≥When bending the mounting tabs of the mounting collar with a screwdriver, be careful not to injure your hands and fingers. ≥Disconnect the cable from the negative - battery terminal (see caution below). ≥Unit should be installed in a horizontal position with the front end up at a convenient angle, but not more than 30o. Caution: ≥Do not disconnect the battery terminals of a car with a trip or navigational computer since all user settings stored in memory will be lost. Instead take extra care with installing the unit to prevent shorts. Less than 30x Dashboard Installation Installation Opening 182 mm 53 mm This unit can be installed in any dashboard having an opening as shown above. The dashboard should be 4.75 mmj5.56 mm thick in order to be able to support the unit. The first step in installation is to identify all the car wires you’ll use when hooking up your sound sys- tem. As you identify each wire, we suggest that you label it using masking tape and a permanent marker. This will help avoid confusion when making con- nections later. Note: ≥Do not connect the power connector to the stereo unit until you have made all connections. If there are no plastic caps on the stereo hooking wires, insulate all exposed leads with electrical tape until you are ready to use them. Identify the leads in the following order. Power Lead If your car has a radio or is pre-wired for one: Cut the connector wires one at a time from the plug (leaving the leads as long as possible) so that you can work with individual leads. ❐ Identify All Leads Turn the ignition on to the accessory position, and ground one lead of the test bulb to the chassis. Touch the other lead of the test bulb to each of the exposed wires from the cut radio connector plug. Touch one wire at a time until you find the outlet that causes the test bulb to light. Now turn the ignition off and then on. If the bulb also turns off and on, that outlet is the car power lead. If your car is not wired for an audio unit: Go to the fuse block and find the fuse port for radio (RADIO), accessory (ACC), or ignition (IGN). Battery Lead If your stereo unit has a yellow lead, you will need to locate the car’s battery lead. Otherwise you may ignore this procedure. (The yellow battery lead pro- vides continuous power to maintain a clock, memo- ry storage, or other function.) If your car has a radio or is pre-wired for one: With the ignition and headlights off, identify the car battery lead by grounding one lead of the test bulb to the chassis and checking the remaining exposed wires from the cut radio connector plug. If your car is not wired for an audio unit: Go to the fuse block and find the fuse port for the battery, usually marked BAT. Speakers Identify the car speaker leads. There are two leads for each speaker which are usually color coded. A handy way to identify the speaker leads and the speaker they are connected with is to test the leads using a 1.5 V AA battery as follows. Hold one lead against one pole of the battery and stroke the other lead across the other pole. You will hear a scraping sound in one of the speakers if you are holding a speaker lead. If not, keep testing different lead combinations until you have located all the speaker leads. When you label them, include the speaker location for each. Antenna Motor If your car is equipped with an automatic power an- tenna, identify the car motor antenna lead by con- necting one bulb tester lead to the car battery lead and touching the remaining exposed wires from the cut radio connector plug one at a time. You will hear the antenna motor activate when you touch the correct wire. Antenna The antenna lead is a thick, black wire with a metal plug at the end. ❐ Connect All Leads Now that you have identified all the wires in the car, you are ready to begin connecting them to the stereo unit wires. The wiring diagram (➡ pages 25, 26) shows the proper connections and color coding of the leads. We strongly recommend that you test the unit be- fore making a final installation. You can set the unit on the floor and make tempo- rary connections to test the unit. Use electrical tape to cover all exposed wires. Important: ≥Connect the red power lead last, after you have made and insulated all other connec- tions. Ground Connect the black ground lead of the power con- nector to the metal car chassis.

Maintenance Your product is designed and manufactured to ensure a minimum of maintenance. Use a soft cloth for routine exterior cleaning. Never use benzine, thinner or other solvents. Product Servicing If the suggestions in the charts do not solve the problem, we recommend that you take it to your nearest au- thorized Panasonic Servicenter. The product should be serviced only by a qualified technician. Replacing the Fuse Use fuses of the same specified rating (15 A). Using different substitutes or fuses with higher ratings, or con- necting the unit directly without a fuse, could cause fire or damage to the stereo unit.
