Fitting a CD Player

I want to change my radio/cassette player for a CD player.
Before i disconnect the battery is it a good idea to turn the alarm off via the switch in the glovebox? The car is a '97 1.8 16v.

Any other tips would be very welcome!

Many thanks
Ian H.

its a good idea but not essential more important when you reconnect the battery make sure you have a door open if you have central locking ive had loads of cars lock themselves when you flash the battery terminal.!!

Hi Ian H
If your car has ISO connectors you just unplug the old one,remove the cage and fit the new one by plugging into the ISO.My 155 is a 92 and has ISO connectors.I fitted my cd player in 10 mins.I am assuming it,s a single cd player

The power on mine is connected to the ignition so its not live until the key is turned. No need to disconnect the battery

Some users here have had problems after disconnecting the battery, with the alarm and the system forgetting the keycode. The ECU resets after about 15mins (perhaps less????).

Personally I have never disconnected the battery. Don't mess with Alfa's electrics if you can help it!! Just unplug the ISO connecter and away you go.
