I ordered the 9886 on Friday and it should be here Wednesday. In the meantime I am trying to familiarize myself with the unit a bit so that I know I have it installed correctly. That brings me to a quick question.
The manual states to "Secure the ground lead of the unit to a clean metal spot using a screw already attached to the vehicle's chassis." When I first read this I took it as grounding the unit's case to the chassis, but the more I read it, it appears it is referring to the installation in a vehicle where all new wires are run (100% custom install).
Just to make sure I have it right, the ground through the factory harness is enough for this unit correct? Would it hurt anything to run a ground wire from the radio chassis to the car chassis, or is it overkill?
Looking at the connections diagram that is included with the manual, the only ground I see is the one in the radio harness that would be connected though the vehicle harness. With that info, I am assuming that this is all that would be needed.
Can anyone clarify this so I know I am going about it correctly?
