Our take on the Axxess GMOS-LAN-04 Wiring Interface

The Axxess GMOS-LAN-04 GM radio replacement interface lets you replace the factory radio in select OnStar-equipped 2006-up GM vehicles using the existing wiring and connectors. Even if you don't subscribe to OnStar, you'll need this adapter to connect an aftermarket stereo.

The Axxess GMOS-LAN-04 GM radio replacement interface lets you replace the factory radio in select OnStar-equipped 2006-up GM vehicles using the existing wiring and connectors. Even if you don't subscribe to OnStar, you'll need this adapter to connect an aftermarket stereo.

Connect the GMOS-LAN-04 to your aftermarket radio, mount the module, and plug it into the existing factory plug. Get the great sound you want, and keep all of the important safety features intact.

You can adjust volume settings for OnStar as well as the safety chimes. In addition, this interface lets your new receiver work with your vehicle's factory amplifiers. This interface gives you convenient plug-in connections for the Axxess steering wheel control adapter (not included) that works with most aftermarket stereos – that means less wiring work for you.

This interface works with select 2006-and up General Motors vehicles. If you haven't done so already, please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this item is compatible with your vehicle. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Works as described allowed me to wire an aftermarket radio and retain my bose amplifier. I'm not sure if it does volume steering wheel controls if it does I couldent figure it out.

Pros: Retains Bose amplifier

Cons: Cost directionals are audible from behind radio from a loud relay would be nice if it remained through the speakers like factory

Could be better

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Right out of the box this harness is wired up to plug into the vehicle, it works OK. What I don't like is how bulky this thing is, it barely fits into the space behind my stereo. The blinker sounds are made by a mechanical relay, which sounds a little soft. In the original GM setup the sounds are electronic, they are piped into the driver's side tweeter and sound better. The steering wheel control pins do not work with my specific vehicle. This was not written in the instruction sheet and caused me a lot of frustration and headache.

Pros: Radio harness wires are matched to common colors, making connections very easy. All the warning chimes and turn signal clicking sounds are retained.

Cons: Bulky. Mechanical relay ticks instead of clicking sounds. Steering wheel controls interface pins did not work in my vehicle.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This interface does the job. It's actually a better design ( got some improvements done to it ) then the original GMOS LAN 04 from 4 years ago . Reason for 4 stars is because original failed after 4 years of work.

Pros: It has now a relay to make turn signal noise , the 4 year old one was making noise coming from speakers. I like the Riley better.

Cons:

A must if you want to easily keep On star, and warning chimes on an aftermarket HU. The blinker tone should have been built in instead of using a bulky relay to make the clicking sound. It serves the purpose, but is overpriced in my opinion for what you are getting.

Pros: Lets you keep warning chimes and On star

Cons: Relay used foe the blinker sound takes up precious space

easy to install

Bad impedance match???

Written by: Joacchim from Chagrin Falls, OH on February 4, 2012

2008 Chevrolet Malibu
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Would not permit higher volume levels from my wife's 2008 Chevy Malibu without significant distortion, even after swapping out original unit with another Crutchfield-supplied unit. Pretty sure the radio's not at fault, it works at lower levels. Review revised 5/9/12 After much troubleshooting and pulling-out-of-hair, culminating in an "aha!" conversation with Crutchfield tech support, discovered that my wife's car radio does not incorporate an external audio amp. Therefore, this interface would not work. Crutchfield promptly shipped the correct interface (GMOS-LAN-03) which worked as advertised.

Pros: Can't think of anything positive to say except that I could be wrong about this product.

Cons: There's a zillion wires you have to get to fit under the dash. Case does not allow one of the plugs to go in without trimming the plastic - the opening didn't allow space for the locking tab on the wire plug-in. As mentioned, apparently not a good impedance match between OEM internal amp and aftermarket radio.

Almost Flawless

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The only place where I will agree with the previous rater is that this device does not allow aftermarket amps to be used. Blame GM for their audio design, not Metra for their adaptation. If you are dead-set on aftermarket amps, speakers, and head unit, then you need to be prepared to give up the factory XM, OnStar, and warning chimes, or to do a lot of work to re-engineer the GM system. This issue is not unique to GM vehicles - many modern automobiles have highly integrated audio systems and it is getting much more difficult to install aftermarket equipment! I used this interface to replace my Monsoon (Panasonic) radio that had failed buttons, with a JVC unit, in my 2007 Saturn Sky. It worked almost flawlessly. The one issue: if you like leaving your key in the ignition with the door open, the chime WILL time out, unlike the factory setup. I will have to remember to take my key out when I am fueling my car....

Axxess GMOS-LAN-04 Wiring Interface

Written by: Gilberto from Laredo, TX on November 22, 2008

This unit will only work if you replace your stereo, and still use your original speaker setup, amp'd by the stereo. If you try to use an external amp, you'll loose all the features of this interface, and it will become worthless. Read a lot and get clear of what will your setup be.

Features

Overview: The GMOS-LAN-04 is designed to retain the amplified sound system, Onstar's emergency services function, and the warning chimes that are normally lost when the OEM radio is removed and an aftermarket radio is installed in select GM vehicles. It also provides a 12 volt accessory output for proper aftermarket radio operation. In addition, the GMOS-LAN-04 provides a mute, parking brake, VSS or speed sense, and a reverse output to make installing an aftermarket navigation radio simpler and less time consuming.

Compatibility: The GMOS-LAN-04 is compatible with the following GM vehicles:

  • Chevrolet:
    • 2007-2010 Cobalt
    • 2006-up HHR
    • 2008-up Malibu
  • Pontiac:
    • 2007-2008 G5
    • 2009 G6
    • 2006-2009 Solstice
  • Saturn:
    • 2006-2009 Aura
    • 2006-2009 Sky

Volume Adjustment: The GMOS-LAN-04 interface features potentiometer located on the 16 pin harness side of the module to adjust the volume, including chime and audible turn signal indicator volume.

OEM Steering Wheel Control Compatible (optional): The GMOS-LAN-04 features a right-angle 3.5mm connector that lets you keep your GM vehicle's OEM steering wheel controls via the optional Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface (item number 120ASWC1, sold separately).

Connections: The GMOS-LAN-04 consists of a single interface with a 16-pin connector on one end and an 18-pin connector on the other end, along with the corresponding harnesses. The 16-pin harness plugs into the interface and is hardwired to your new radio's harness. The 18-pin harness plugs into the interface and three OEM harnesses behind the radio. The 18-pin harness also has several leads to hardwire to the new radio.

Installation Note: The GMOS-LAN-04 uses the existing factory amp to send the audio from the OnStar, door chime and turn signal sound to the left front speaker of your vehicle. So you will need to retain at least the front channels of your factory amp to utilize this interface.

Optional RSE Retention Harness: The Metra GMRSAV (120GMRSAV, sold separately) is an RSE retention harness designed to retain the rear seat entertainment system in these select GM vehicles. The GMRSAV provides an audio/video input to the factory overhead video screen from your new aftermarket radio, and provides the audio/video output from the rear seat control panel to the aftermarket head unit.
