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.
Perfectly fit as expected
Allen, New Bern, NC
Perfectly fit as expected
Pros: Worked great
E Z hook up. I made the connection in my shop with the radio and the installed it in my truck.
Wish everyone made install as easy as Crutchfield
Pros: Easy installation
Perfect matchup to vehicle connector. Soldered to radio leads as per directions and excellent first powerup.
Pros: Lets you do most of the wiring on the workbench with soldering and heat shrink. Keeps the factory key, door, and seatbelt audio.
So YES you can install your radio with the simple wiring units sold elsewhere.... and yes you can go buy the super expensive ones I have seen..... But why.. this is a perfect little add-on to keep you factory system notifications working. and it sounds much bettter as I set it in the dash some to make it comfortable and not overpowering.
Pros: Ease of use
This thing worked good from 02/2016 to 06/2016. Then when the weather started getting hot, the thing started having erratic behavior. Lol. I had to take my dash apart to unplug it because it would stay on after I turned the key off. When I came back to get in the truck, it was still making a gurgling noise. Is it defective? Well mine seems to be. Hopefully Crutchfield will send me a new one or something else.
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Does not last long.
Super easy to install, works fantastic!
Pros: Plug and play, enough said!
Installation was simple and everything works as it should.
Works just as advertised
Pros: Does the job
Cons: Could have a better designed connection
Works amazing and customer service was great!
Pros: You get to keep your chimes and emergency alerts
I thought that this device would allow the warning charms to sound through the stereo speakers like it does on the factory unit, but this has a small speaker on it that sounds the chimes and it sounds like it is a pretty chinsy speaker. Other than that it works great and was an easy straight forward install. The wiring matches color for color with the factory harness which makes it very easy to complete.
Pros: Easy install, harness colors match almost perfectly making it that much easier.
Cons: Speaker quality for the chimes is pretty sad, sounds like a poorly put together set up from the 80's. Otherwhise a great unit
Very very easy to wire and super fast shipment. Definitely be using these guys for all my stereo needs!!
Easy install and works great
Pros: Easy install
This interface worked perfect. Retained the chimes, no anti-theft system issues.
Pros: Recommended with purchase, retained the factory chimes, easy to install, not expensive.
Sweet kit. Easy instructions. I did have to buy additional wire crip connectors. It would have been sweet if this would have popped up as an optional accessory at the time I bought the adapter. Crutchfield could have made more $ and saved me time. but all good. just a suggestion
Pros: Easy install
Really easy to hook-up. Nice wiring diagram.
Pros: Ease of wiring, good tech support.
Cons: Didn't come with original order but they fixed it fast.
Easy installation snap in go
Product started working great as soon as installed! Customer is very happy with install. They wanted to go with a cheap harness but after explaining the purpose of the interface to them, they chose it instead and saw the benefits of their choice immediately.
Pros: Does its job as described
Cons: Beware tight areas behind the receiver. Between the interface, stereo mounting depth, and wiring harness size, it may be a very tight fit.
This made the installation into this truck so much easier... perfect fit... and only took 25 minutes to install
Wired in easily and worked as expected. This unit retained the factory key and warning chimes.
Pros: Easily installed and sounds factory.
Easy to read instructions
Pros: No unneeded wires
Cons: Should tell you to mount the speaker where it could be heard
I turned it upside down under the dash to muffle it more.
This wiring adapter made a quick and clean installation of the new system in the car. I soldered and shrink tubed the wires and it looks and works great!
Made wiring up the radio a snap and kept all of my factory features that normally would have had to be bypassed.
Worked great for the first 3 months I had it. However; recently, the door chime box attached to the harness blew its fuse and shut my entire vehicles accessory circuit down. I clipped that thing off and gave it a look, no way to fix it. I'm just using the adapter plug-in now without any warning noises (which I actually prefer). I don't plan on replacing it because my radio has very noticeably lower distortion at high volumes.
Pros: The connector to the factory plug is great
Cons: The chime box is a piece of garbage
Works great. Easy installation.
Well it works alot of the times but sometimes it won't even come on. No door chimes and radio dosent come on. I remove the stereo fuse and put it back in and start the car and it works. It's good when it works. But a pain when it dosent
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Sometimes dosent come on
Worked great no problems. Functions correctly in my 2006 GMC
Pros: Easy to install
Perfect match up!
I am so glad that I consulted the Crutchfield tech for information on the interface. I was prepared to purchase the stereo and installation kit somewhere else before I talked to him. He was not trying to sell me anything, just honest advice and information. This actually made my decision for me and will definitely make me a return customer.
Pros: As advertised. This interface keeps all of the factory settings working properly. I almost went without it in an effort to save a few dollars. I am so glad that I didn't.
Cons: Lots of wires to connect but if you take your time, it is no big deal.
Easy to figure out instructions. This made the installation simple.
Pros: Easy to use.
Cons: Bulky, I had to find a place for it when installing the new radio. No Biggie.
Does what it is meant to do!
Worked good for a few weeks and then it started going bonkers. The chime comes on while you are driving for no reason and will not shut off ever. The only way to make it stop is to reach in the dash and pull the harness and then replug it in. If the truck sits for a day the battery drains and the truck wont start.
Pros: Cheap and easy to install
Cons: Didn't hold upCrutchfield response on February 23, 2016 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
This replaced my old door tones. My told tones were not working so now they are back loud and clear.
The install was very easy. color codes match the factory exactly, just match and crimp, works well.
Pros: Wire colors match exactly for crimping, Just remember to do the blue/white remote wire ... it was needed for my Impala to produce any sound at all.
Cons: the chime is probably a bit too quiet..which actually is a plus for me, but not the person I installed it for.
Didn't need anything more elaborate on my wife's base Trailblazer.
Pros: Does everything it needs to do. Easy to install.
The interface cable was easy to terminated to the stereo wiring.
very easy to use
I used this wiring harness in two different car receivers. I had it installed by a car stereo shop both times. The ignition wire was faulty, and my radios would often not turn off when I exited the car. The chime module was also a big problem with this harness. It occasionally caused my headlights to turn off when driving, and my parking lights to come instead. This is a big safety hazard and I recommend everyone to spend their money elsewhere. I bought the Axxess GMOS-01 02-Up Onstar Harness Adapter with Chime on a different online retailer's website instead, sadly it's not on Crutchfield. I had this wiring harness installed in my last car (and now this car) and have had zero problems with it. I contacted CRUX looking for a replacement radio harness, because it is under a one year warranty. It has been two months and they still haven't gotten back to me. This kind of customer service is ridiculous. I hope that if you buy this product that you won't have the same problems I did, because CRUX won't help you with them.
Cons:Crutchfield response on February 22, 2016 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, especially a situation like this, please contact our customer service or tech support teams right away. They can help you solve the problem and get the stereo installed and working. We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Someone hacked into my 2003 Trailblazer and did a sloppy stereo install and this made the chimes work again, once I cleaned up the mess.
Pros: Makes the chimes work again
This was an exact fit as expected. The chimes sound just like the factory chimes. This was essential to installing the replacement radio. The local big box store offered a similar unit at twice the price.
Pros: easy installation
It works. The plug that fit into the back of my pioneer was supplied, but had to be spliced, and there were no instructions to ensure I was doing it right. Yes, it is straightforward, but I did buy with the expectation there would be clear instructions on how to do it.
Cons: Instructions not helpful at all
Works as advertised and significantly cheaper than other stores
Pros: easy to install
Does what its supposed to. Nice to not have to cut factory harness
Easy and worked great. Nice soft bell/ding tone.
Worked great in my 2002 Chevy Cavalier. No issues.
This was hooked up easily enough, but it is very large for having to be installed in such a tiny space. Also, the door chimes continue to sound long after the key has been removed from the ignition.
Pros: Easy to connect.
Cons: Too big and chimes seem to be erratic.
Easiest install ive ever done and works perfectly. No extra acc lines its all there in the harness. 03 trailblazer was gtg in 45min start to finish.
Pros: Everything plus excellent service if you have questions about anything at all!
Every thing worked just as the instructions say
Pros: Very easy to install
unit worked well with 2004 Avalanche. plug for unit had a loose power wire that drove me crazy till I found it and repaired it.
Pros: worked well with Avalanche
Cons: loose wire on plug
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.
Pros: Works like a charm
Cons: No antenna adapter
it works and it is simple to in stall
Pros: it works
Cons: none here it works
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
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.
I received it rather quickly and everything was correct within the shipment. Couldn't be happier!
This item was perfect. All of the wires are long enough to make great connections with. The chime is loud enough to hear with my stereo's volume up. My package came was delivered on time.
Pros: Good quality. Good price.
Cons: No cons
Colors match up perfectly! All you need is maybe 30 minutes, butt splices, crimps, strippers and you will be ready to install your new radio!
Pros: Ease of install and matching color to color!
Cons: no problems here!
I searched everywhere for this product and found it here and had It in no time . I drive a 2003 chevy avalanche and could not find this part anywhere else once it came in I not only got the part but a wiring diagram that came in much needed use and even a magazine that I plan on buying stuff from in the future ... bottom line this company had the products you need no matter what!
Easy to connect with the color coded wires and overall a good product.
Pros: Color coded wiring was easy to understand.
Cons: Chime could be a little louder, dings longer than it needs to, had to cut part of the plastic insert in the car in order to fit everything.
Worked exactly as stated
Cons: It's a little quoted and sounds different
Great product great price. Fit great in my trailblazer.
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!
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
Cutchfield set me up with this for my stereo replacement.
Pros: Woks like it should not real loud
Had no issues with connections and worked as expected.
Pretty easy. And all the chimes work
Pros: Nothing extra to wire with the chime box
Cons: a lot of extra wiring. Make sure you have the dash space
I bought this wire harness to put a new radio into a 2002 Malibu. It works just fine and the crutchfield team was really helpful.
Cons: Rather expensive for a few wires. The box is quiet. Requires you to do some splicing.
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
Cons: Not compatible to my vehicle, if you're looking at this product, call tech support and ask questions before you buy
Asked the Crutchfield Sales associate for the least expensive solution but good product in stock. He recommended this product and it works just FINE. No issues, No Problems...Fit The Bill
Pros: Easy Installation
Easy to install and easy to adapt to radio.
Everything worked like it says
Perfect for the installation of the aftermarket stereo I HAD to install in my daughters car. Very easy instructions to understand.
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Finding a place to secure under dash
Easy to use, plug and play. It could be a bit louder though. The box is inside the dash and is a bit muffled.
Great product but, three of the wires were out of place and had to be move in order for it to work.
Pros: Great connections
Cons: Three of the wire in the harness where out of place for my application.
Door chimes work as before, easy as pie to install
Pros: easy, relatively inexpensive
The installation was a breeze and the customer service lady was professional and she was able to help me, She knew enough about the installation to get me thru some questions I had.
Pros: color to color make up and almost everything else just plugged in to each other.
Cons: some of the colors of the stereo harness were had to determine the colors.
All the wires matched up Perfectly. the color code was spot on and the interface unit works perfectly. Installed this unit in an 06 Chevy Trailblazer with a Kenwood KDBT558U radio.
Pros: Matched up perfectly
excellent harness assembly works perfect with my 2003 Chevy Malibu
Pros: excellent quality... perfect length and design. everything snaps together perfect and the customer service support with any questions I had was nothing less than outstanding!!!
Simple to install. Works as advertised. What more do you need?
Pros: Easy to install
Worked out perfectly for my 07 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
Pros: Right fit
Cons: Nothing wrong with it
Installed in my 2004 Oldsmobile Alero with a new stereo unit. All the chimes still audible thanks to this and it was fairly easy for me to install. One call to Crutchfield (Just a couple minutes total, first and only person that answered me was extremely helpful and had my problem figured out in about a minute)
Pros: Easy to follow wiring, EXTREMELY helpful people at Crutchfield for troubleshooting
Pros: ease of use
really easy to install, works great and does everything its supposed to
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.
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.
Easy to install. Adds a lot of wires making it hard to fit in console
Pros: Loud and easy to hook up
Cons: Adds lots of wires to hide
Works great, easy to install!
The first unit didn't work. Crutchfield sent a replacement. Didn't work either. Crutchfield then sent me an Axxess GMRC-01 for the same price. Come to find out, there was a hinky little problem with my factory harness with one of the pins being in the wrong location.
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.
Worked as advertised - easy installation too.
Pros: works like factory
This made the install work great. I don't have a problem with how loud it is like other reviews.
Pros: Easy to install.
Easy harness to hook up.
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!Crutchfield response on April 9, 2014 Our tech support team contacted the customer to troubleshoot the situation and offer a different adapter.
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.
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
Worked for me. Soldered same color to color and plugged it in.
Made instal a snap and retained all factory chimes
Pros: Very easy instal
very simple install just match the colors and done. it is a little on the quiet side but I can get past that because I like to turn up my music with my door open so that dinging sound would be really annoying if it was any louder.
Pros: Simple install.
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.
They product worked great and matched the CD Receiver that I ordered.
Made hook up simple. Has great instructions. Makes wiring neat and simple.
This is a great product to help with the door chimes and other factory chimes. I was easy installation and worked well.
this item just makes it so much easier to replace General Motors radios you are able to wire everything pretty much and your house or shop you don't have to wire it under the dash it's all taken care of before hand and you just plug in play definitely recommended this item if you have A General Motors or Chevy vehicle.
Pros: Everything about it makes the job easier!
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
Cons: that you need to have this, bad design of wiring harness from auto maker
does what it is supposed to
Pros: it works
Very easy to use. Wiring was a breeze.
Pros: Able to hear warnings through it.
Cons: could be louder
Would not install the radio without it. Allows me to keep the door chimes and other factory chimes.
Pros: Easy to wire in.
It's unfortunate that Chevy made this adapter necessary. Nothing Crutchfield can do about that though. The install was stupid easy and it's working like a charm. The alarm sounds are slightly softer than factory, but I prefer it. The Crutchfield adviser was very helpful and knowledgeable.
Pros: Works Alarm tones are easily audible but soft and not shrieking
Cons: Only that it's a requirement
Nice and easy to install in my Trailblazer. Keeps the chimes working and paired nicely with the factory harness and the harness from my Pioneer head unit.
Pros: cheap and simple
This adapter was easy to setup and install in my 05 Chevy Colorado. I did all the wiring matchups previous to going and installing and the actual installation only took about 20 minutes in 25 degree weather. The unit did exactly what it was supposed to and the system is working flawlessly
Pros: Easy setup and installation Replaces the factory bus and all systems working on the truck Though low, the chimes are easily audible and not intrusive at all
Cons: none I can think of
Excellent perfect fit
Pros: A great replacement for original equipment
Great product! Adapter was very easy to wire to factory harness. Wires were labeled with easy-to-find color coating. It's a must buy!
Pros: Fits 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer No On-Star, No Bose. Easy to connect, and chime sounds are easily heard from factory connection.
Cons: Great Product with no cons.
Over priced and too quiet, but it does what it should..
I bought my wife a car stereo two years ago for Christmas. I had a heck of a time finding the right connectors needed because GM likes to run everything through the stereo. Her birthday was earlier this month and I needed to install that stereo. Crutchfield got me set up right! The adapter was easy to wire up to the stereo harness and it works like a charm! My wife is very happy and so am I. The quality is good, and the chime sounds just like the factory one.
Pros: Good price, easy to install, good quality
Painless to install.
Pros: Ease of installation
Cons: Price a little high I thought
Easy to install, but the chime isn't loud enough
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Chime needs to be louder / better quality
so far so good, I took it to an installer. better than splicing wires and was able to keep my state of the art door chime : ).
Pros: x on the box? : )
Installation with this harness was quick and spot on! Easy to solder the wiring to the harness from the stereo I bought.
Pros: Color coded wiring and instructions easy to do!
It makes integrating your aftermarket stereo into you're vehicle seem as though it's an oem stereo. I retained all factory warnings and chimes with ease.
Pros: Easy too attach/install
Easily hooks up from a new aftermarket radio into a Chevrolet wiring harness. It keeps the chimes working that are normally controlled through the factory radio.
Pros: Easy hook-up
Cons: The fact that I need it in the first place.
Wiring harness was very easy to use. Color coding was very similar to the stock Chevy wiring harness.
Pros: EZ to use
Worked great eazy to install
Pros: Easy to install sounds like factory chime
Wires matched right up, worked like a charm
Pros: Everything about it
was helpful to install my new head unit in my chevy silverado 2500 still lets me here my warning bells
Easy to install and does the job
Pros: Easy to install and does the job
Well worth it. Would recommend
Pros: Easy Install
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.
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.
Great product. Made connecting a non-factory radio a breeze. Highly recommend.
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
Very easy to install. Provides vehicle chimes as advertised.
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!
Helped immensely with he install.
Pros: Chicks dig me now!
Cons: I should have done it sooner and I would not have had to take my sister to prom.
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.
Was very easy to install
Pros: All wires matched up
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
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)
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.
WOW did this make the install easy
It goes ding when it is supposed to.
I replaced my factory GMC (without Onstar) double din with a IVE-W535HD. Wanted to keep my chimes for safety reasons. I have used many wiring harnesses over the years and was a bit skeptical looking at it online. Out the box, it looked like it was constructed well. Everything was soldered and shrink wrapped. The wires going to the speaker box seemed a bit short and I was afraid that the chime would be too faint installed behind the stereo and dash. I figured I could extend the wires and place the speaker box elsewhere if I had to. I installed the harness as normal and was able to point the speaker box toward the dash where light was coming through. NO PROBLEMS AT ALL! I can barely tell the difference and I have owned the truck for 7 years. I highly recommend this product. Having the chimes after an after market install is a huge safety feature!
Pros: Easy to install.
super easy to install, must have this item or no warranty through crutchfield. gives all the factory chimes
Pros: ease of install, cheaper price than any audio store locally
I used this item to install my new Sony Stereo in my Chevrolet Colorado. All was wired as directed and when I plugged it in to my harness and tried the chimes, FOOF and a bunch of smoke came out of the box. Crutchfield replaced it except I paid about more and got the metra gmrc 01. I am just glad it did not take out my trucks computer. Just F.Y. I, The Metra worked Great.
Pros: If it had not blown up, I would have most likely had no problem with it.
Cons: It blew up.
Got it in the mail and it did not work had to return, don't buy for a Cadillac Seville with onstar
Cons: Did not work for my vehicle
recommended by crutchfield advisor, simple self installation, performs perfectly, great product!
I got this when I ordered my stereo from Crutchfield. I put this in an 09 Trailblazer. The instructions that came with it were easy to follow, and I had no problem hooking it up. When everything was installed, my chimes were still working though they will be coming through his box. Sitting in the vehicle, when I turn off the ignition and take out the key, the radio still runs til I open the door, just like the old one did.
the warning chimes (the reason this thing is installed) are weak ,
Pros: weak sound
Cons: gotta have it
Great item. It has done exactly what it is supposed to do without a problem
Pros: Loud enough and easy too install
Cons: None at this time
It easy to install (the installation instruction are easy to follow), and with it is possible to keep the Factory functions, it work great.
It does the job it was intended for. Plugs in easily and good wiring color codes.
Pros: easy peasy
Great accessory for adapting an aftermarket head unit. Works as advertised.
Pros: Works great
Worked as promised. Just plugged it in and I had all the features I did with the stock radio installed.
Pros: Easy as 1, 2, 3.
I installed this into an 2008 Chevy Trail blazer w/o Bose/Onstar. It installed very nicely and works just like the stock chime just a little quieter.
Pros: Retains Factory warning chimes, Compact enough to fit behind radio, and price is great.
All of the adapters, along with Crutchfield's instructions and excellent customer service, make for a very easy yet custom installation.
Works well, plug and play installation. The chimes could definition be louder, though.
Quick install works great also
Pros: Plug it in it works
Very good product. Worked out perfect for me. Very good instructions and easy to follow. I chose to solder all wires. That takes some time to do but was worth it to me. After installed everything worked as expected. ..RonH
Pros: Great product, Easy to install, Reasonable price
Cons: Nothing negitive to say. It simply works very well
Love the way it brings my door chime and keeps the Pioneer deck powered until the door is opened. Needed for aftermarket CD decks. Buy it!
Pros: Factory components retention
Fantastic product easy to install, And you cant tell its not the factory chime. Saves all factory warning chimes. All around great AAA+++
Cons: Easy Install, Fast and simple, Compact fits anywhere.
Easy to install, just sucks to have to pay for a bell
This adapter does exactly as advertised: provides the harness for plugging into an aftermarket receiver while retaining the warming chimes.
Pros: - Wiring harness makes receiver installation easy - Small enough to tuck inside the dashboard near the receiver
A good way to preserve the factory chime in your non-onstar GM vehicle. The install was straight forward & it worked just as it was supposed to.
Pros: Not too bulky to tuck in the dash cavity. The cost was less than that of other options.
Cons: The chime actually comes out of a speaker in the interface itself; not through the factory speakers. When tucked in the dash it is audible, but a little muffled.
It works great no problems at all
Quick shipping easy install
it is all about matching up which crutchfield representives make it happen like i felt THEY GUIDED ME TO GET THE JOB DONE 100% THANKS FELLORS
Pros: FANTASTIC MATCH
Cons: FANTASTIC MATCH
