How do you play a CD?

Your car’s audio system is able to play a wide range of discs, including CDs, CD-Rs and more. If you’re not sure how to load a disc or listen to it, here’s what you need to know:

  1. Turn on the system by pressing the power button.

  2. Slide the disc about halfway into the CD slot. The audio system will automatically pull it the rest of the way in.

  3. Make sure you press the CD button on the radio’s face.

  4. To eject a disc, just press the eject button.

  5. If a disc is already in the system, press the CD button to listen to it.

  6. Use the center knob to adjust the volume. Press the button on the knob and turn it to choose tracks on the disc.

  7. Press the setup button to show either the name of the disc or the name of the track.

  8. Use the seek and skip buttons to change tracks.

  9. Use the scan button to sample songs on the disc.

  10. If you have a CD-R or CD-RW with MP3 or WMA files, use the back and down buttons to change folders.
