Regardless of whether this is an amp or a head unit, an install kit is either very helpful or necessary. If it's an amp, you'll need it for sure - you can't power an amp with 18 gauge factory power wiring like a head unit can use. You need to get at least 10 gauge power and ground wire, 18 gauge remote turn-on wire, and RCA patch cables to conduct the sound. If you have a factory head unit, you'll also need a line-level adapter to give you a source for the RCA patch cables.

If this is a head unit, you'll need the adapter harness to plug your existing stereo harnesses into the new head unit. It makes it simple - the wires on the new head unit are color-coded for what they do, and the adapter harness is identically coded. Match the colors, then plug it in. You may also need an antenna wire adapter (some cars require this).

I bought my car used and dont know how to connect my cell phone to it (( 350 mercidece benz 2005 ,thanks


Call the dealer. I am almost positive that you have to buy a special installation kit so you can run it.
I was talking to a Vendor who installs our 2-way radios and he said that the electronics in the luxury cars have become too much. And because of the complicated wiring designs that they use. You must use their kits or you will void any warranty and could possibly damage the vehicle. Good-luck.

Park brake switch


If you have the old firmware then all you need to do is ground the parking brake wire..

if you have the new firmware(just bought the system) a toggle switch is involved:
1 - connect e-brake wire from dvd unit to the switch
2 - connect a ground wire from switch to the unit chassis(any good metal grounding surface will do)
3 - pop in a dvd, toggle the switch back and forth 2 or 3 times depending on what wire you placed where...and voilaa!! your dvd system should work in motion!!

I just installed a Clarion max385vd. When we turn the headlights on, the buttons and screen illumination on the head unit keep flashing from dim to bright. Everything else is working perfect.


illumination wire does not need to be installed on this model. depending on your car, it may use odd voltage for the dash lights. Clip and tape off the illumination wire going to the harness.
