On most vehicles there are four little holes in each corner of the radio. there is a very cheap special tool that u need to insert into the holes. You can pick this tool up at any automotive store. its very easy.

Everything is connected and installed properly it even always finds satellites but it just stays at calibrating I haven't entirely figured out how to calibrate it and make it show where I actually am.

You are supposed to have the little antenna /reader outside the car in the center of the windshield, and I would recheck if you have it plugged in properly. If not call JVC or the store you bought the head unit from and ask them.

Some one took the radio out of my car and now the head lights dont work y is that do i need the radio for the head lights to work it has the buddy light en u pull them on but they only stay on for a sec...

There is a radio wire that also goes to the headlights. I think a wire from the radio burned out the fuse that both of them use. You need to wrap all the bare wires from where the radio was and then check the fuses--including the ones in the engine compartment. Let me know if this doesn't fix it. You do not need the radio for the lights to work...

My son was going to change the radio out and he cut all the wires and now the windows wont work and the trunk or the gas thing either i would like to find a wiring plan that would show how to put the stuff...

what you can do is go to a junkyard cut the clip out of the same car and wire it back together. when you install a radio you are supposed to buy a wire harness that plugs into the one he cut and wire the harness to the radio and plug it in. check fuse too he could have shorted them when he cut. NEVER cut wires in the dash use the harness its available at most parts stores and usually only 20 bucks

Cigarette lighter doesn't work. Need to know where the fuse is

If the cigarette lighter does not stick when you push the lighter in then this is the step to take. The prongs inside the lighter adapter have been pushed too far out. ( This happens if you plug other electronics like satellite radio or radar detectors) First, you MUST take out the fuse from the fuse box located under in the glove box. Second, look inside the lighter adapter (not the lighter) you will see two prongs that are supposed to be flared a bit inward. Simply get a small flat head screwdriver and pick the prongs outward but not too much. Do test trials with the lighter to ensure the lighter sticks. Plug the fuse back in and your lighter will be good as new. -Pete

Installing back up camera

First, your ML's COMAND head MUST be pre-installed to back up camera. Check with a voltmeter the plugs no. 1 and 7 in the back of the COMAND, they must have power. If not, you'll need a COMAND head with back up camera option.
If yes, you are free to buy a MB back up camera, install and plug and have a dealer encode your MOST fiber ring to let the car know you are using a BUC.
If you plan to use an after market BUC, like Pioneer's, you'll need to buy an adaptor. Expensive tho.
Good luck.
