A first disappointment from a Crutchfield purchase
2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This harness was recommended by Crutchfield tech support as the preferred product for a Kenwood head unit and Axxess steering wheel control adapter installation in an Outlander Sport. Wiring the head unit was pretty straightforward. However, this harness is deficient in wiring in the Axxess control adapter. And this is only due to the lack of 2 wires in the connector (pins 9 and 19). Since every model of this vehicle has steering wheel controls, one would assume the high likelyhood of needing to adapt these to a new head unit. Therefore, one would expect this harness to be prepopulated with the missing wires. As is, the only options to making the Axxess work with this harness is to splice separately into the factory harness for the missing 2 wires (circumventing the overall purpose of using this harness in the first place), or add pins to the connector yourself. This harness should include pins/wires to pin 9 & 19.
Pros: Flawless integration of head unit.
Cons: Missing pins 9 & 19 necessary to adapt steering wheel control adapter should be included in the connector.
