You want to install a Dual, Jensen, Pioneer, or Sony stereo in your vehicle, but you hate to give up the convenience of your factory steering wheel radio controls? No problem. PAC's SWI-PS interface allows you to use the steering wheel controls in a wide variety of vehicles to command your new Pioneer or Sony radio.
Installation is straightforward connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and your stereo, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. The direct connection to the stereo means there's no need for an infrared emitter, allowing the SWI-PS to function even in bright sunlight. Step-by-step LED confirmation makes programming easy. Once connected, the SWI-PS' failsafe memory will learn up to 9 stereo functions, retaining them even if battery power is interrupted. Dimensions: 3-5/84"W x 1"H x 1-9/16"D. Warranty: 1 year.
Important Note: On some vehicles, you may need a voltmeter to locate the correct wires to connect to the SWI-PS. If you have no car audio installation experience, you should consider professional installation. The SWI-PS is compatible with most Pioneer stereos that have a steering wheel remote input, as well as Sony stereos with a wired remote input, but please call or email us to confirm compatibility with your radio.
Wiring Advisory: You'll usually have to tap into one to three wires in your vehicle at the radio location to connect this interface. If you're using a PAC OEM integration adapter to connect your new car stereo to your vehicle, then it most likely will have a prewired connector for this PAC steering wheel audio control adapter. In these cases, no additional wiring in required. PAC does provide custom wiring instructions for all confirmed compatible vehicles on their website.
