Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Radio Housing Kit: The OEM Integration Kit includes a radio housing
kit which allows you to mount a double- or single-DIN aftermarket head unit in
your 2012-2013 Chevrolet Sonic or Spark vehicle's dash. The mounting kit is made of durable ABS plastic and is
available in a black or dark grey finish. A 6.125" (w) x 1.5" (h) x 4.125"
(d) pocket is included, when installing an aftermarket single-DIN head unit.
Radio Replacement Module: The included radio replacement interface
(RP-5GM41) allows the replacement of the factory radio in your 2012-2013
Chevrolet Sonic or Spark with an aftermarket head unit. This interface
module allows you to retain factory features such as OnStar, Bluetooth, steering
wheel control (SWC), and warning chimes. The RP5-GM41 also provides data bus
driven outputs such as retained accessory power (RAP), vehicle speed sensor
(VSS), illumination, reverse trigger, and parking brake.
Built-in SWC (Steering Wheel Control): The radio replacement
interface features built-in steering wheel control and comes pre-programmed for
all of your vehicle's factory SWC functions and does not require programming,
unless you wish to re-assign the SWC functions to different buttons. The SWC
harness contains a Blue/Yellow wire and a 3.5mm connector. You will only use one
of the connectors, based on your type of aftermarket radio.
