Product Research

Features

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 Ram

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 Chrysler/Dodge vehicle's OEM steering wheel controls via the optional Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface (120ASWC1, sold separately). The Chrysler/Dodge 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.
