Axxess LC-CHRC-01

You want to replace your factory radio, but you'll lose the warning chimes that help you park. There's a remedy for this: the Axxess LC-CHRC-01 wiring interface retains your Ram truck's parking assist warning chimes, provides 12-volt accessory power, and keeps your aux in jack, factory backup camera, and the Retained Accessory Power (RAP) feature.

Wire up the LC-CHRC-01 to your aftermarket radio, mount the module, and plug it into the existing factory plug. Get the great sound you want, and keep your factory features intact.

The LC-CHRC-01 includes a prewired harness for Axxess' ASWC-1 steering wheel control interface (sold separately), which allows you to keep your steering wheel controls with most receivers. The interface also provides the outputs you'll need to connect a NAV receiver, including parking brake and reverse. The interface works with non-amplified systems or when bypassing an amplified system. Warranty: 1 year.

Features

Radio Replacement Interface Module: The Axxess LC-CHRC-01 interface is designed to allow you to replace the factory radio of select Ram trucks with an aftermarket head unit, while retaining many factory features that are normally lost when the factory radio is removed.

Vehicle Compatibility: The Axxess LC-CHRC-01 is compatible with the following 2013-up Ram trucks (as of 6/20/2017).

Make Model Year
Ram 1500/2500/3500 (small screen option) 2013-up
Chassis Cab 3500/4500/5500 (small screen only) 2013-up

Amplified & Non-Amplified Systems: The Axxess LC-CHRC-01 can be used in vehicles with no factory amplifier, or in vehicles when bypassing the factory amplifier.

Retained Factory Features: The Axxess LC-CHRC-01 retains the following factory features.

  • +12V/10A Accessory Output: In these vehicles, there is no 12-volt accessory wire in the factory harness, which requires the installer to run an accessory wire to the fuse box or underneath the steering column when installing an aftermarket radio. The LC-CHRC-01 is designed to provide a 12V/10A switched accessory output (red wire).
  • Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.): The ignition power source of these vehicles keeps the radio on until one of the doors is opened. This feature is called the R.A.P. (retained accessory power). The LC-CHRC-01 is designed to retain this feature.
  • Park Assist Chimes: The LC-CHRC-01 retains your vehicle's factory park assist chimes (if equipped) through an onboard speaker in the interface module.
  • Aux Input: The LC-CHRC-01 retains your vehicle's factory aux input through its stereo RCA jacks and your aftermarket radio's rear-panel Aux input. You aftermarket radio may require a stereo minijack to RCA adapter (sold separately).
  • Backup Camera:  The LC-CHRC-01 retains your vehicle's factory backup camera through its composite video jack and your aftermarket radio's camera input.

Optional Steering Wheel Control Adapter: The LC-CHRC-01 features a right-angle 3.5mm connector that lets you keep your vehicle's factory steering wheel controls via the optional Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface (120ASWC1, sold separately), when installing an aftermarket head unit with a steering wheel control input.

Navigation Outputs: In addition, the LC-CHRC-01 provides navigation outputs (VSS, Parking Brake, and Reverse) to help ease the installation process of an aftermarket navigation radio.

It was recommended for a new stereo install in my RAM 1500. Using a wiring interface is easier than splicing all of the wires in the dash. It also allows the system swap to be reversed easily. [ David  Mar 07, 2018 ]

upgrading to a touch screen and need the part for my Pioneer radio [ John  Jun 18, 2017 ]

This is the most important part of the installation kit to allow the new radio to match up to the factory wiring harness. It keeps the wiring neat, prevents shorts, and keeps you from having to cut the factory wiring harness and causing some other unintended issues. [ James  Mar 13, 2017 ]

Q
I purchased this wiring harness for my 2015 RAM 1500 truck and the usb connection is not the same as the cable on my truck which is a male usb B type plug. The factory radio part # P68245816AC. I'm assuming that the factory usb cable is running from the fold down seat console usb port. What do I need to get the console usb port connected to my new radio (Kenwood DDX373BT)?
