How do I disassemble the dash board ???

I have a 2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4 doors (sweet!!!). I hooked up the Radar Detector on the plastic trim above the windshield. I want to run a wire (inside the trimmings) to connect to the cigarette lighter wires so I dont have to have the wires hanging on the outside. I assume I need to disassemble the dash, but I have no idea how. Can you help? Or, do you have a better idea? Thank you!!!

Re: How do I disassemble the dash board ???

1. Run the wire around the windshield frame, down the side of the dash, and across the footwell until it reaches the center console section. 2. Remove the top panel of the dash stack by prying up on the back edge until it pops free. There are two clips in the back corners, and it will roll off toward the front. 3. There are a couple of bolts that hold the front bezel in. Remove them, and then gently pry the rest of the bezel off -- there are 4-6 more clips like the ones from the dash top panel holding it in place. 4. Find the gray wire with the orange stripe running to the lefthand cigarette lighter. This is ignition switched power. Tap the radar detector leads into that wire. This will cause the detector to come on when you turn the ignition on, and off when the ignition is off. 5. Close everything back up. You're done!

Clarion nz409 how to remove properly from dash .

Yes you will need the keys that came with the radio. If you cant find them you will need to go somewhere like radio shack or somewhere else that installs car stereos and have them remove it for you.

How do i reset the radio for my XM Sirius? How do i remove KDC-BT742U from dash to reset using tools provided? book is just not clear enough on this.

There is no need to pull the radio from the dash to reset. There is a reset button above the aux in put behind the usb door. You will need a paper clip or a tip of a ball point pen. Once reset you will need to reprogram all of your setting (FM stations, clock) as this will wipe out the memory. To remove the radio from the dash will depend on what kind of car its in. Some (Toyota, Niss.) use the factory brackets to mount in the dash. IF this is the case the dash will need to be disassembled. For the kit installs you will need to remove the trim ring around the outside of the face of the radio. Then the keys will be inserted on each side of the radio releasing the clips then the radio can be slid out.

Removing headuint jeep wrangler 2009

You need to remove the top dash panel and front bezel before you can access the head unit.
  1. Remove the top dash cover by prying up near the windshield side. There are two clips holding it in place near the back, and you can rotate it forward and off.
  2. Remove the lower panel of the center bezel (just in front of the shifter) but pulling gently from the bottom. It is held in by clips only.
  3. You can then remove four bolts that hold the center section in. After you do this, gently release the panel. There are about six clips holding it in place.
  4. Once you have removed the bezel, you can remove the four bolts around the head unit and slide it forward.

Radio install

it's not that hard to remove the panel you'll need to pop up the defrost dashboard trim with a flat head screw driver and then you'll reveal the top screws for the center panel, then you'll need to pop out your ash tray and reveal the bottom screws. after all screws are out you'll be able to remove center panel by hand. then there will be 4 bolts holding your radio to the dash that you'll need to remove and you're done.

DEH-P2500 Not Working At All

i have the same unit i put it in my jeep wrangler had problems as far as which 2 hot wires need to be hooked up. finnally figured it out. take it out hook up the hot wire and ground straight to the battery, it should come on if it does come on then you have a problem in the wiring from the dash, to make sure the wiring in the dash is good you should check your fuses first, then do a continuity test with a volt meter to check for a break in the wire wether it being ground or hot. weed out the simple problems first. if your head unit does not come on from direct hook up to the battery then the problem exist in your head unit
