How does the audio system work?

While your car’s audio system is pretty complex, operating it doesn’t have to be an exercise in frustration. It’s actually pretty simple to use. Here are the most important things you need to know:

  1. You can only use your radio with the key set to ACC or in the on position

  2. Press the power button to turn the system on

  3. Use the large central knob to scroll through options

  4. Push the center of the knob to choose an option

  5. Use the setup button to change the audio system mode

  6. Use the back button to go back one step if necessary
