Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Overview: The CHTO-02 interface is designed to allow you to
replace the OEM radio with an aftermarket unit and retain the use of the OEM
amplified audio system in select 2004-2008 Chrysler/Dodge vehicles that feature
a factory amplifier. The CHTO-02 also keeps the Retained Accessory Power
convenience features if the vehicle is so equipped. In addition to these features,
the CHTO-02 has the required outputs (Mute, Parking Brake, VSS and Reverse) for
the installation of an aftermarket navigation radio.
Compatibility: The CHTO-02 is compatible with the following
Chrysler/Dodge vehicles equipped with a factory installed Infinity, Boston
Acoustic or Kicker amplifier.
- Chrysler: 2004-2008 Pacifica
- Dodge: 2004-05 Ram (no fading control
if vehicle is equipped with UConnect Hands-Free System)
Retained Accessory Power: If your vehicle has the Retained
Accessory Power (R.A.P.) function, which supplies power to the radio after the
ignition is turned off, until one of the front doors is opened, this function is
retained by the CHTO-02 harness.
OEM Steering Wheel Control Compatible (optional): The
CHTO-02 features a right-angle 3.5mm connector that lets you keep your GM
vehicle's OEM steering wheel controls via the optional Axxess Steering Wheel
Control Interface (120ASWC1,
sold separately). The GM vehicle must have factory steering wheel controls to
retain access to the factory customization menu, once the factory radio is
replaced with an aftermarket head unit.
