Your stereo works if you turn your ignition key anti clockwise. Using the boats electronics also makes sure you do not run the batteries dead, which could leave you stranded.

A beauty

Love to know how you find the electronics on this star. I have a 2008 and have been weary to upgrade because of all the electronics which could go wrong. I would appreciate an honest comparison ?
