PAC OS2C-CTS Wiring Interface

Overview

Our take on the PAC OS2C-CTS Wiring Interface

PAC's OS-2C-CTS interface lets you replace the radio in 2003-up Cadillac CTS and SRX models while maintaining operation of the OnStar® system, warning chimes, and rear parking assist chimes. The OS-2C-CTS will work with standard GM or Bose amplified audio systems. Warranty: 1 year.

PAC's OS-2C-CTS interface lets you replace the radio in 2003-up Cadillac CTS and SRX models while maintaining operation of the OnStar® system, warning chimes, and rear parking assist chimes. The OS-2C-CTS will work with standard GM or Bose amplified audio systems. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: This interface will not work with 2004-06 SRX models with Cadillac navigation radios. You'll lose the factory XM receiver and the ability to fade from front to rear speakers when you install an aftermarket stereo. Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this model is compatible with your vehicle.

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

OK, here is the down and dirty on this adapter. It's a great product, works well with my car. However, the instruction manual has TINY writing where it comes to whichg wires go where on each car - just tiny! Good thing the give the online version. Anywho, the wires from your harness plug directly into this units secondary harness, after you look up your car's wiring in the manual. It's pretty simple but a novice (like me) has to take their time on this. That said I did it per the book (and also watched it online) and it was a 1st time go - no issues. So yes I say get it!!

Pros: Easy to connect and assemble.

Cons: VERY BULKY UNIT, and much more so when you coulpe this with several other modules like the steering wheel control module, the dinger and so on.. Not to mentione all the cables like RCA, back up cable, speakers blah blah (it's a lot of junk back there). But I made it fit!! Also, the manual has tiny very print in the appendex area - which is the most important part of this operation

Features

Overview: The PAC OS-2C-CTS Radio Replacement Interface Module allows the installation of an aftermarket radio into select Cadillac CTS and SRX vehicles equipped with OnStar and a factory amplified audio system.

Note: You may use this interface even if the vehicle does not have OnStar, but does have the factory amplified audio system.

Vehicle Compatibility: The PAC OS-2C-CTS Radio Replacement Interface Module supports the following vehicles.

Make Model Year Restrictions
Cadillac CTS 2003-2007 All models
SRX 2004-2006 Only vehicles without factory installed navigation radios

Note: The OS-2C-CTS does not retain the factory XM receiver, you will lose this option when the factory radio is replaced with an aftermarket headunit. Due to the design of the factory amplified system, there is currently no way of fading from the front to rear with an aftermarket radio.

OnStar Compatible: The PAC interface module will maintain operation of the OnStar and factory amplified audio system. OnStar audio will play through the front speakers when active. Your vehicle's OnStar volume will not be adjustable (preset at medium level).

Warning Chimes: The PAC OS-2C-CTS also retains all warning chimes and vehicle rear parking assist chimes.

Steering Wheel Control Compatible (optional): The PAC OS-2C-CTS is compatible with PAC's Steering Wheel Radio Control Interface (541SWIRC, sold separately) for aftermarket radios.
