About the Metra LC-GMRC-LAN-03 Wiring Interface

Problem: Installing an aftermarket receiver in many late model GM vehicles means losing the chime that warns the door is open, along with other audible safety warnings. You want to retain the chime and warnings, but you don't want to keep the factory amp or OnStar®.

Problem: Installing an aftermarket receiver in many late model GM vehicles means losing the chime that warns the door is open, along with other audible safety warnings. You want to retain the chime and warnings, but you don't want to keep the factory amp or OnStar®.

 Solution: Metra's LC-GMRC-LAN-03 GM Data Bus Interface lets you replace the factory receiver in these vehicles and keep all audible safety warnings, without having to spend the extra cash for an adapter that retains features that you aren't going to use.

Wire up the LC-GMRC-LAN-03 to your aftermarket radio, mount the module in a location where the chime can be heard, and plug it into the existing factory plug. Get the great sound you want, and keep all important safety features intact. Warranty: 1 year.

Important Note: This LC-GMRC-LAN-03 interface allows you to keep your factory door chime (needed to keep audible safety warnings functioning) while providing a switched 12-volt power source for your new radio. If you do not use a compatible adapter when you replace your factory radio, you will disable the audible warning system in your vehicle. Crutchfield cannot provide a free wiring harness for your vehicle, and we strongly recommend that you use this interface when replacing this vehicle's factory radio. Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death.

Features

Vehicle Compatibility: The Axxess Integrate LC-GMRC-LAN-03 is designed for use in select 2006-2012 GM vehicles with non-amplified factory systems (or when replacing the factory amplified system) and without OnStar.

Make Model Year
Chevy Cobalt 2007-2010
HHR 2006-2011
Malibu 2008-2012
Pontiac G5 2007-2009
G6 2009*
G6 2010
Solstice 2006-2009
Saturn Aura 2007-2009
Sky 2007-2009

*The 5th digit of the 2009 G6's VIN must be a J, K, or L.

Retained Features: The LC-GMRC-LAN-03 provides +12V/3A accessory output, retains warning chimes, and retains R.A.P. (retained accessory power).

  • +12V Accessory Output: In many GM 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-GMRC-LAN-01 is designed to provide a 12V/3A switched accessory output (red wire).
  • Warning Chimes: The LC-GMRC-LAN-01 retains factory warning chimes through the use of an on-board speaker.
  • Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.): The ignition power source of most GM 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-GMRC-LAN-01 is designed to retain this feature.

Wiring Harnesses: The main interface wiring harness has a white 4-pin female connector on one end and a black 14-pin male connector (9-pins present) on the other end. The 4-pin connector plugs into the LC-GMRC-LAN-03 and the 14-pin connector interfaces with the existing factory plug. The harness also includes 9 bare wires that will need to be hardwired to your new aftermarket radio's harness. There is an second wiring harness (rear speaker harness) with a 16-pin male connector (6-pins present) on one end and six bare wires on other end. The 16-pin connector plugs into your vehicle's factory radio plug, while the bare wires hard wire to your new radio.

The product is needed to install an aftermarket radio in my vehicle. Most I've seen go for $80+. I trust crutchfield, as the company has been well known for many years. If I seen this price through another, I'd turn and run as fast as I could. I'm just hoping it comes with the actual wire harness to splice into the head unit. Lol [ Jason  Feb 15, 2019 ]

For some reason Chevrolet decided it was a good idea to have important audible alarms be announced via a speaker that will literally fry itself by design (07 Chevy Cobalt, when it rains, water leaks through window seals, shorting out front door speakers). [ Ryan  Feb 21, 2018 ]

I decided to purchase this harness because even though I have On-Star I didn't care about using it and I don't have steering wheel controls and this harness allows me to retain my radio and warning lights without paying for the accessories that I don't use anyway.

Installing a new head unit in my mothers HHR. Got a cheap harness elsewhere but did not use it as it did not allow her to keep the warning buzzers/chimes that play through the stereo system. I wanted this harness as i feel losing all of your warning chimes is a safety issue that i don't want in my mothers car. [ David  Apr 27, 2017 ]

Q
Would i have to re wire a power source to make my new radio work?
[ kenard  Dec 26, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
No, this is a plug and play design. The only wires you need to solder will be the ones from the new deck harness, to this harness.
[ John  Dec 29, 2017 ]
A
The wire should go where the power source was wired originally. Referring to the crutch field memo/instructions that should come with the order if i'm not mistaken, but if not call crutch field's excellent experienced customer service. They will definitely know the answer!
[ Alex  Dec 26, 2017 ]

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.
