Fiat Radio Replacement Interface:
The CRUX SWRFT-53 is a radio replacement interface for select 2012-up Fiat
vehicles. It facilitates the integration of an aftermarket radio to enable
retention of factory features when replacing a factory installed radio in select
Fiat cars. This interface is also pre-programmed for retention of
steering wheel controls.
Compatibility: The CRUX SWRFT-53 is supported by the
following 2012-up Fiat vehicles.
Note: Please consult Crutchfield's
Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible and what additional
installation accessories will be needed.
Steering Wheel Control Retention: The CRUX SWRFT-53 also
features a steering wheel control output for Alpine, Clarion, JVC, Kenwood,
Pioneer, and Sony aftermarket head units. The steering wheel control output
consists of a right-angle 3.5mm connector and a light blue/yellow wire (use the
connection that your aftermarket head unit is fitted with). The SWRFT-53
interface module will work with any of the listed aftermarket head units, by
setting its three dip-switches (see owner's manual for appropriate setting).
Note: The steering wheel control harness features two 4-pin
connectors, two 3.5mm connectors (labeled Pioneer/Sony and Alpine/Clarion),
and one blue/yellow wire (labeled Kenwood/JVC). You will only plug in one of
the 4-pin connectors to the interface module and one of the 3.5mm connectors
or blue/yellow wire into your aftermarket head unit you are installing.
Navigation Outputs: The CRUX SWRFT-53
radio replacement interface module provides a VSS (vehicle speed sense)
and a Reverse Gear output to make installing an aftermarket Navigation radio
simpler and less time consuming.
Amp Turn-On: The CRUX SWRFT-53 provides an amplifier turn-on
lead for your vehicle's factory amplifiers (if equipped).
Wiring Harness: The included wiring harness features a
12-pin connector which plugs into your vehicle's factory radio harness, plus a
12-pin connector which plugs into the SWRFT-53 interface module. The wiring
harness also provides the following bare-wire leads which will need to be
hardwired to your aftermarket head unit's wiring harness.
