Axxess XSVI-5524-NAV interface

The Axxess XSVI-5524-NAV interface lets you connect your new high-powered car stereo to the factory wiring plug in your 2011 or later Ford vehicle. This adapter provides you the electrical, ground, and speaker connections you need, including a 12-volt accessory power lead for your new stereo. It also retains the Retained Accessory Power (RAP) and offers the reverse, parking brake, and Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) outputs needed for installing a new navigation receiver.

The XSVI-5524-NAV interface also includes a pre-wired harness for the Axxess ASWC-1 interface (sold separately), in case you'd like to integrate your factory steering wheel audio controls with your new car stereo.

Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this adapter is compatible with your vehicle. Warranty: 1 year.

Important Installation Note: The Axxess XSVI-5524-NAV interface will not retain the THX and SONY amplified system available in some Ford vehicles, nor will it retain the factory SYNC system.

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

Features

Vehicle Compatibility: The Axxess XSVI-5524-NAV replacement radio interface allows you to install an aftermarket radio in select 2011-up Ford vehicles. The XSVI-5524-NAV interface is designed to be used in vehicles without a factory amplified sound system or when replacing the entire factory amplifier system. The XSVI-5524-NAV does not retain the factory THX/Sony amplified sound system or Ford Sync. Compatible vehicles include (as of 7/30/2013):

Make Model Year
Ford Fiesta 2011-up
Focus (w/o MyTouch) 2012-up
Fusion (w/ 4.2" screen) 2011-up
F-150 (w/ 4.2" screen) 2011-up
Explorer (w/ 4.2" screen) 2011-up

Note: Please consult the Crutchfield Car Selector to see if your vehicle and aftermarket head unit is compatible.

12V/10A Accessory Output:  In these vehicles, there is no 12-volt accessory wire in the factory harness, which requires the installer to run an accessory wire to the fuse box or underneath the steering column when installing an aftermarket radio. The XSVI-6502-NAV is designed to provide a 12-volt/10-amp switched accessory output (red wire), along with an illumination wire (orange/white wire).

Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.): The Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.) function supplies power to the radio after the ignition is shut off until one of the front doors are opened. This function is retained by the XSVI-5524-NAV interface.

Navigation Ready: The XSVI-5524-NAV provides essential wires required for aftermarket radios that have navigation. VSS (Vehicle Speed Sense), Reverse, and Parking Brake wires are provided. This helps to cut down the installation time, since the installer does not have to look for these wires in the vehicle.

Optional Steering Wheel Control Interface: The included wiring harness features a right-angle 3.5mm connector that lets you keep your vehicle's OEM steering wheel controls via the optional Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface (120ASWC1, sold separately).

Color Codes: Wiring up the XSVI-5524-NAV is like wiring up any other wire harness that would attach to an aftermarket radio's harness. The Metra/EIA wire codes can be found in the Installation Instructions that will aid you in the wiring of your aftermarket radio The XSVI-6502-NAV interface contains the following wire leads.
