To Play a Disc

To load or play discs, the ignition switch must be in the ACCESSORY (I) or ON (II) position.

You operate the disc changer with the same controls used for the radio.

To select the disc changer, press the CD button (CD/AUX button on models with satellite radio), the disc and track numbers are displayed.

The system will continuously play a disc until you change modes.

Do not use discs with adhesive labels.


Do not use discs with adhesive labels.

The label can curl up and cause the disc to jam in the unit.

This audio system can also play CD-Rs and CD-RWs compressed in MP3 or WMA formats. The numbers of the folder and track playing are shown in the display on the disc player. A disc can support up to 255 folders, and each folder can hold up to 255 playable files. A disc can hold up to 999 files in total.

When there are more than 99 folders in a disc, the audio display only shows two digits.

Video CDs and DVDs do not work in this unit.
