The audio system of the Toyota Land Cruiser models is in detail described in the separate Operation manual on these cars issued by ARUS publishing house.

The considered audio system has a possibility of reception of a radio signal of the RDS format at frequencies of LW, MW, FM1, FM2 and FM3, listening of audio cassettes and compact disks (CD). In it it is possible to install up to 6 CDs at the same time.

Purpose of action buttons (1-6) can change depending on the chosen mode and it is specified on the information display directly over the corresponding button. Some functions appointed to the separate button assume repeated pressing of the button for the choice of options of this function. For example, the RPT function (cyclic playing of one path) by repeated pressing changes on function of cyclic playing of all disk, and by the third pressing – on function of cyclic playing of all established disks. Function of any playing is similarly realized. At the choice of the SCAN function only the first 10 seconds of each path of a disk(s) will be lost.

In view of usability of the audio system only the description of installation of compact disks in it is given below.

Then color of indicators will become green, the inscription on the display will be replaced with "LOAD" and the blind of a crack will open. At this time it is necessary to insert CD.

If the disk is established incorrectly, on the display the inscription "ERROR1" will appear.

2. For installation of several CDs press the LOAD button and hold it until you hear a sound signal. Then there will be events described in paragraph 1. The disk should be established at emergence of the inscription "WAIT". For the termination of a cycle press the LOAD or DISC button.
