Why position 2?The orange "cables" on the CD changer are fiberoptic. As always, when disconnecting the head unit, you must disconnect the battery first, after the car has been turned off for at least 5 minutes. When reconnecting the battery, the key needs to be in position II.
It may be the documented correct method, but I've disconnected my battery 3 times in the last two weeks (upgrades) and completely air-headed that step. No ill effects that I can notice.Why position 2?
I've sent an email to MusicarNW to see what they would charge for installation. If I can, I'd really like to do it by myself. Thanks a lot for the information, though. I've been living here 16 years and still didn't know that was a place! I do have a buddy who's done some radio/stereo upgrades in a car before, but hasn't ever worked on something this complex.Just realized you're in Portland. Take the car to MusicarNW. Seriously. If I lived in Portland, there's no way I wouldn't take advantage of one of the best custom audio houses in the USA.
Secondly, if you really want to do it yourself, you need a buddy who's done this a bit to show you some stuff.
There's a ton of info on youtube of course:
You'll need to buy a bunch of tools:
And a bunch of install stuff:
