On / Off

With the key in Drive position M, press on control A to switch the radio on or off.

Note: If the radio was on the last time you switched off the ignition, it will resume automatically when you switch on the ignition again.

You will not have to press on control A.

After switching off the ignition, you can still operate the audio system even without the ignition key being present. Simply press on button A. The system will turn itself off after approx.

30 minutes.

Anti-theft system

This radio is coded in such a way as to function only on your particular vehicle. It would be unusable if installed on any other vehicle.

Note: The anti-theft system is automatic and requires no action on your part.

Selection of source

To select either Radio, CD (CD already inserted and Radio source activated), or CD changer source, press on control D.

When you insert a CD it automatically starts being read.

Note: When the radio is switched off, the source selected is memorised.

Volume adjustment

Rotate control A to increase or decrease the sound volume.

You can also increase or decrease the volume using controls 4 and 5 at the steering wheel.

Note:

The sound volume when you switch off the radio will be the same when you switch it on again.

The radio sound volume automatically adjusts to the vehicle speed, provided the volume adjustment function is activated.

Temporary sound pause

Press on control 6 at the steering wheel to activate this function.

The sound will be paused, regardless of the source selected.

To restore sound, press on control 6 at the steering wheel or on one of the controls 4 or 5 at the steering wheel.

Sound adjustments

Each press on button F brings up the parameter to be adjusted: choice of predefined sound ambiances, bass, treble, loudness, fade (front/rear sound distribution), balance (left/ right sound distribution) and volume adjusted to vehicle speed.

Press buttons K or N to modify the values for the function displayed.

Note:

The selection of a sound ambiance automatically adjusts bass and treble. These can be modified.

To restore the original adjustments for the musical ambiances, reset bass and treble to zero.

Adjustment of loudness, as well as bass and treble when they are available, are specific to each sound source and to each musical ambiance.

If you leave the audio system unactioned for a few seconds, it will revert to the normal display.

Remark: A superimposition of ambiances, loudness and bass adjustment may cause vibrations/interference and result in poor sound quality.
