* LED descriptor:

-RED (POWER)

-YELLOW (CAN),

-GRN (COMM)

1 x Harness

Harness will have the following:

a) Red wire (ignition power)

b) Black wire (chassis ground)

c) CAN wires - CAN wires will be twisted together and terminate at a black OEM Mercedes CAN plug

Installation for the interface requires the following connections:

  1. RJ22 cable from MAX-INT to MAXCi module UART Serial port

Parts

  1. Locate RJ22 plug from MAXINT125 Plug RJ22 from MAXINT125 into port labeled UART SERIAL on Escort brain
    • Locate RJ22 plug from MAXINT125

    • Plug RJ22 from MAXINT125 into port labeled UART SERIAL on Escort brain

  2. Pull up floor along front passenger side door sill towards kick panel
    • Pull up floor along front passenger side door sill towards kick panel

    • Locate CAN distribution block with brown and brown/red wires. Distribution block locations

    • Plug black CAN plug from MAXINT125 harness into any empty spot in CAN distribution block

    • Connect black wire from MAXINT125 harness to chassis ground

    • Locate ignition power source (behind lighter socket recommended)- Connect red wire from MAXINT125 harness to ignition power source.

    • Power and ground for MAXINT125 can be connected to same power and ground source as Escort radar

    • Check red LED to confirm power and ground connections. If red LED is on, move on- if not, check power and ground connections.

    • Check yellow LED to confirm CAN communication. If yellow LED is flashing, move on- if LED is not on or not flashing, check CAN connection and make sure correct CAN block is being used

    • Check green LED to confirm communication with Escort brain. If green LED is flashing, move on- if not, check RJ22 connection from step 1 and confirm RJ22 from MAXINT125 module is connected to UART serial port

    • Using steering wheel controls, change instrument cluster mode to either AUDIO/RADIO, TELE, or NAVI.

    • Test radar- alert(s) should appear on instrument cluster.

    • Radar display will work on Audio, Tele & NAVI modes
