i-Honda-R DICE iPod Integration Kit for Honda/Acura, Radio Interface Kit

Installation Instructions:
1. Pull vehicle into service bay and access center console.
2. Disconnect both battery terminals. These cables must be disconnected during installation to insure proper initialization of the DICE module when it is connected.
3. Remove any trim that may need to be removed to gain access to the screws/bolts holding the radio in place. On some vehicles, this may require removing the trim around the shifter and removing the coin and cup holders, finally getting to the trim surrounding the radio.
4. When the radio screws,bolts can be accessed use the proper tool to remove the screw or bolt. Usually a 10mm socket or Phillips screw driver will be needed. When the radio is being removed, use care not to damage the dash as the radio case has sharp edges and can easily scratch plastic surfaces. We recommend using a cloth to wrap the radio to prevent this from happening.
5. Find the proper plug on the back of the radio, indicated by the red arrow. If the plug is occupied there may already be a CD changer installed in the vehicle. This needs to be disconnected before the DICE module can be connected.
7. Verify all connections and re-install the radio into the vehicle by sliding it into the tray until it locks into place. Route the docking cable as desired.
Use caution around the factory wiring while reinstalling your radio. If the radio will not slide into place, do not try to force it in place. Pull the radio back out and check for any cables or other obstructions that may be in the path of the radio.
The DICE iPod Integration installation is now complete.
Its recommended to install your DICE module in a easily accessable location or to extend the AUX connector for future connections of auxiliary devices.
6. Connect the vehicle specific cable’s 8-pin molex connector and iPod Docking Cable to the DICE module. The correct plugs on the DICE module can be identified by matching it up with the connector or by looking for the label on the bottom of the module.
