Installing an aftermarket receiver in many late model GM vehicles means losing the chime that warns the door is open, along with audible safety warnings. The Crux SOCGM-17 GM Class II Data Bus interface lets you replace the factory receiver in these vehicles and keep the door chime and all audible safety warnings.

Connect the SOCGM-17 to the wiring harness on your new car stereo, mount the module in a convenient location, and plug it into the existing factory plug. Get the great sound you want, and keep all important safety features intact. This interface does not work with GM's Premium Bose® systems or Onstar®, and it won't allow you to keep your factory steering wheel audio controls. It will work with the standard Bose system. Warranty: 1 year.

Important Note: If you do not use an interface like this when you replace your factory radio, you will disable the audible warning system in your vehicle. Crutchfield cannot provide a free wiring harness for your vehicle, and we strongly recommend that you use the recommended interface when replacing this vehicle's factory radio. Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death.

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.

Highlights:

  • lets you install an aftermarket receiver in late model GM vehicles without losing the door chime and audible safety warnings
  • will not work with factory steering wheel controls, Bose® or OnStar® systems
  • dimensions: 3-7/16"W x 1-1/16"H x 2-7/8"D
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Worked exactly like it was supposed to. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars was the antenna adapter was not included with the wiring harness, so that meant an untimely, and unwanted, trip to wally world.

I installed this unit and it works great. Our 2006 Chevy Trailblazer has OnStar but we don't use it. This unit allows the It to bypass the OnStar but allows the door chimes and vehicle alerts to operate correctly. So if you use OnStar don't install this item.

Pros: Easy to connect and it works great

Excellent

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product is as advertised. A friend and I installed this with my Pioneer head unit and everything worked wonderfully. As you already know I'm sure, if you don't have the correct wiring harness for the Chevy Cavalier (mine is a 2002) the vehicles electronics, and lights won't work. The use of this harness has assured everything works efficiently and factory. I would definitely recommend this to those who want to retain a proper working vehicle without the hassle.

Pros: Color Coded for easy installation.

Cons: None.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This interface delivered everything that it was described to do. The ease of wiring it to the radio was not even a challenge. The functions and, response really impressed me, allowing the same actions as the original equipment. I have used Crutchfield for many years and the dependency has never wavered or failed. Outstanding products. If someone want to replace or repair electronics in their car, I truly advise them to contact Crutchfield for information, and items that are cost friendly, easy to install, with total satisfaction. Awesome

Pros: Easy to follow instructions and guides. Color coded wiring to match the original equipment wiring, which makes it almost impossible to connect anything incorrectly. The interface matches the the vehicle connections perfectly.

Cons: Could not find any!

Amazingly simple!

Written By Anonomous, Minnesota on Thursday, March 26, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was pleasantly surprised to find out how easy this harness was to use. All the wire colors matched up identically to the harness on my JVC stereo. Wires were pre-stripped, and easy to identify. My only complaint is that the chime is not very loud - but this may just be because I did not mount it within direct ear-shot. I left it in the space behind the stereo.

Pros: Ease of install - worth the price!

Cons: Chime could be a little louder

Total junk if you have a GMC Canyon don't buy this , tech support is great but this is not compatible to my truck the first one I purchased would not work properly my dash lights would come on and if I turned truck off and took the key out and opened my door the radio would stay on , had to disconnect battery to turn off radio, not fun. Round 2 - called tech support they replaced the unit figured the crux box was the issue sent a new one , I RR the boxes and this one,same result ,not happy

Pros: None

Cons: Not compatible to my vehicle, if you're looking at this product, call tech support and ask questions before you buy

easy install, just plug and go. attached to back of cavity. No problems. The version that I tossed out with the old Sony unit that was in my SUV when I bought it was just an open circuit board wrapped in electrical tape! It had also shorted out, which gave me the opportunity to replace it with a Bluetooth enabled unit with iPod controls.

Pros: works as promised.

Cons: none.

Written By Ryan, Southern Oregon on Saturday, June 21, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this product on a 2007 Chevy 2500hd Classic. Works well, the chime is loud enough for my taste. Maybe a little quieter than factory. Easy to install and easy to find a place to put it. On my truck I put it right behind the instrument cluster to the right side. Straight forward installation and I would highly recommend this product for any Chevy aftermarket stereo installation. Retained accessory power works great too.

Pros: Easy to install, enough harness length to put it in a good spot and loud enough for me. Works just as advertised.

Cons: Amp remote on wire is included in harness. No factory amp in my truck so I had to cut that wire and splice it to my head unit. No big deal though.

Pros: Crutchfield customer service and tech advisors.

Cons: Didn't work. However, it may very well be my trucks fault. Never heard it ding or anything. At least the GMRC-01 dinged.

Had to install this module so the vehicles alert system would still work. No mater where I put the speaker it is so quite I cannot hear it over the vehicle running. It is very quite... If there is another option that could be swapped in to make the sounds go through the speakers like the factory stereo did that would be more desirable.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Cant hear it!

It does work and that matters a lot but When I installed this in my trailblazer, The wires were not long enough to allow good placement so it is inside the dash and it is hard to hear sometimes. I wish I would have bought a better one.

Pros: It allowed me to install my new Alpine!

Cons: Short wires and its not very loud.

Does exactly what it says it does

Written By Brian B, Durham, NC on Friday, March 28, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is pretty easy to install; not really any more difficult to connect than a plain wiring harness. You basically connect it the same way. There's only two things I would change about this. I would make it a little smaller so it's easier to fit behind the receiver, and I would make it louder. The latter issue being more of an issue the the former, but it's still better than no sound at all.

Pros: Easy to install; no different than connecting any other wiring harness

Cons: A little difficult to get to fit behind the receiver; not all that loud

Exactly replaces the key warning system in my Chevy Silverado

Written By Travers, Newport News, VA on Monday, March 17, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The integration adaptor exactly replaces the key warning system of the 2004 Chevy truck. There is no difficulty with wiring or placement. Just snap a 6 wire harness into the small adaptor box and strap it to the new radio with 2 plastic slip ties. Takes 2 minutes.

Pros: Easy to install and an exact replacement for the OEM key warning system. Crutchfield sells it for 1/2 price. Check the price at other retailers and you will agree.

Cons: None!

This product made the install very easy and fast. I tucked it up behind the stereo so the chimes weren't as loud after reading other reviews about how loud it was. Perfect volume level, just enough to hear it. Having not to run the red power wire back to the fuse box or splice it in somewhere else makes it easy to install the radio.

Pros: Easy install, keeps warning chimes, red power wire for radio

I bought this for my radio install in an '05 Avalanche, said it would keep the chimes and it did great price too.

Pros: Easy install, wires clearly labeled.

Cons: None.

Overpriced

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a necessary item to retain warning chimes, and the manufacturer knows it, therefore keeps the price high and makes big profits.

Pros: Easy enough to install

Cons: Doesn't play though speakers so it's much quieter than the stock unit. Can barely hear if stereo is playing. Door chimes quit after a few seconds, factory unit kept on until you shut the door. You can't really call this a direct replacement for stock unit.

Could not make it easier

This product does what it claims to do - it makes my Silverado play door chimes, seat belt warnings, etc., with an aftermarket receiver. It was easy to install and fit right behind my dash easily.

Pros: Easy to install, works great

Nice

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This interface works as it should in my 2004 GMC Yukon SLE. Make sure you mount it to something secure. At first I had it velcroed to the AC duct in my dash and it was buzzing as it chimed. I readjusted it and it sounds fine. Sounds very similar to the factory door chime.

Pros: Works as it should

Cons: The fact that I need one at all is annoying. Thanks GM!

Amazing!

GM adapter

Written By Chad, Columbus, OH on Monday, September 23, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Unfortunately with a lot of GM cars this is a needed part. First I think this is crazy to pay this much for an adapter to be able to upgrade a stereo but a big thank you to Crutchfield for having it half off if bought with a stereo. That said, this item installs easily and without issue.

Pros: Easy install

Cons: Price and it being a must have.

Easy to use

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy enough to wire up. good instructions , Makes adding an aftermarket unit to a new vehicle just as easy as it was in the 80's while keeping all the functions working as they should .

Pros: Keeps the door chime chiming when it should, keeps the stereo on after key is removed until the, door is opened just like with stock unit did

Cons: Chime seems quieter than stock , may be the location where i placed the unit

CRUX SOCGM-17 Adaptor Works Great

Written By mbratch, Webster NY on Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I own a 2004 Chevy Classic (Malibu). The CRUX SOCGM-17 integration adaptor installed very easily. I just attached the wires as I would on a normal adapter. All of the wires are properly color coded for the connection. The chimes on the adapter all work and at a volume perhaps slightly software than the factory chimes, but quite audible. The chime box has mounting holes for screws but there were a couple of "pockets" of space behind the stereo where I was able to just set it without having to mount it. Installation was very smooth and quick.

Pros: Very easy to adapt and install. Chimes work as desired and expected.

Cons: (None come to mind)

2003 Avalanche...

Written By Kevin, Attleboro,MA on Saturday, August 31, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great. I have all my chimes and was very surprised at the sound considering the factory chime comes through the speakers. Very simple to install.

Pros: Easy to install. Doesn't sound cheap.

Cons: None so far.
