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.
Product Overview: The SWI-ECL2 allows you to retain the use
of your steering wheel and rear seat radio controls when replacing the factory
head unit with a compatible Eclipse receiver. The SWI-ECL2 also retains the use
of heater control buttons on GM vehicles.
Vehicle Compatibility: The SWI-ECL2 is compatible with most
of the following vehicles from 1986 to current:
Note: Go to Crutchfield's Outfit
My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible with the
SWIECL2 steering wheel radio control interface.
Known incompatible vehicles:
- BMW: All BMWs with factory-activated
cell phones and All with 5-volt SWC data wire at the steering
- Toyota: 1998-2003 Sienna vans
- Volvo: All vehicles
Head Unit Compatibility: The interface is compatible with
any aftermarket steering remote ready Eclipse radio that has wired remote input
Easily Programmable: The buttons on your steering wheel may
be assigned to any of the following five Eclipse functions: volume up, volume
down, mode, track up, and track down.
Non-volatile memory: This feature keeps all programming in
memory even if the vehicle battery is disconnected.
Great for Convertibles: The SWI-ECL2 sends commands to
compatible head units via wires, so bright sunlight will not affect operation,
like it does with infrared based interfaces. Unlike the SWI-X, the SWI-ECL2 is
not affected by bright sunlight
Resistor Kit: Some vehicles have a separate wire for each
of the steering wheel buttons. Use the resistor kit for steering wheel push
buttons that do not already have a resistor network connected to them. The
resistor kit includes the following resistors:
- 47 Ohms (yellow,violet, black)
- 100 Ohms (brown, black, brown, gold)
- 150 Ohms (brown, green, brown)
- 560 Ohms (green, blue, brown)
- 1000 Ohms (brown, black, red)
- 1500 Ohms (brown, green, red)
- 3900 Ohms (orange, white, red)
- 5100 Ohms (green, brown, red)
