  • Never install this main unit where it will interfere with safe operation of the vehicle. Never block the drivers' view. Do not install main unit where it may interfere with operation of the brakes, the steering or any safety equipment, including seat belts and air bags.
  • Before drilling holes in a vehicle for installation, you must confirm the locations of pipes, tanks, electrical wiring, and other vehicle systems and components to ensure that there will be no interference or contact. In addition, you must also apply rust prevention and leak prevention measures at the drilling area. Otherwise, fire or electric shock could occur.
  • When installing main unit do not remove or alter existing vehicle fasteners, including nuts, bolts, screws, clips, and fittings. Never detach, move or alter existing vehicle wiring, including electrical grounds and straps. Alteration of existing vehicle components may make vehicle unsafe to operate.
  • Before installation, remove the negative (-) battery terminal to prevent shocks, electrical arcing, fires, and damage to vehicle wiring and the main unit you are installing.
  • Secure wiring with tape or plastic ties so that wires do not interfere with vehicle operation, including brake pedal, gear shifter and steering. Position wires so that they will not be rubbed, abraded, or damaged by moving vehicle components, including power seats.
  • To avoid main unit and vehicle damage, including fire, never supply power to the installed main unit in a way which will overload the capacity of an existing vehicle circuit. Never leave a power supply wire or connection uninsulated. Always install supplied fuses, circuit breakers, and relays.
  • Air bags are vital safety equipment. Never install the main unit in a way which will alter air bag wiring or interfere with air bag deployment. Air bags must function properly in the event of an accident.
