Playing a CD

Rating:

If the ignition or radio is turned off with a CD in the player, it stays in the player. When the ignition or radio is turned on, the CD starts playing where it stopped, if it was the last selected audio source. The CD is controlled by the buttons on the radio faceplate or by the RSA unit. See Rear Seat Audio (RSA) System on page 7?48 for more information.

When a CD is inserted, the CD symbol displays on the left side of the radio display. As each new track starts to play, the track number displays.

The CD player can play the smaller 8 cm (3 in) single CDs with an adapter ring. Full-size CDs and the smaller CDs are loaded in the same manner.

CD/AUX (CD/Auxiliary): Press to cycle between CD or Auxiliary when listening to the radio. The CD icon and a message showing the disc and/or track number will display when a CD is in the player. Press again and the system automatically searches for an auxiliary input device; see Auxiliary Devices on page 7?33 for more information. If a portable audio player is not connected, “No Input Device Found” displays.

(Information): Press to display additional text information related to the current song. If information is available, the song title information displays on the top line of the display and artist information displays on the bottom line. When information is not available, “NO INFO” displays.

(Tune): Turn to select tracks on the CD that is currently playing.
