You'll only be able to retain your steering wheel audio controls with a compatible car stereo made by Alpine, Clarion, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer, or Sony. No other brands are currently compatible. Check the Details tab to see if steering wheel audio controls are retained in your vehicle.
Wire in a new radio
Crux's SWRBM-57 interface ensures that you can keep the steering wheel audio controls and the factory analog amplifier in your vehicle when you replace the factory radio. Connect this interface to the wires on your new stereo's wiring harness, and you've covered the power, ground, and factory speaker connections for your new stereo.
The SWRBM-57 interface also offers the parking brake, reverse, and Vehicle Speed Sensor (V.S.S.) outputs that you'll need if you're installing a navigation receiver. Note: This adapter will not work with the digital amp used in some systems. See Details for a list of compatible car stereos.
