Introduction

This guide will show how to replace a motherboard. The motherboard could be causing faulty display, not turning on, and bad sound quality on a continuous basis.

Before any repair work can be done, one must remove the device from the vehicle. To do so follow this link to see a vehicle general removal of a stereo system.
