About the PAC SWI-ECL2

You want to install an Eclipse stereo in your vehicle, but you hate to give up the convenience of your factory steering wheel radio controls. No problem. PAC's SWI-ECL2 interface allows you to use the steering wheel controls in a wide variety of vehicles to command select Eclipse radios.

Installation Note: Some newer vehicles require a special interface for this installation. Click here or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to see if you need an interface to install this steering wheel control adapter in your vehicle.

You want to install an Eclipse stereo in your vehicle, but you hate to give up the convenience of your factory steering wheel radio controls. No problem. PAC's SWI-ECL2 interface allows you to use the steering wheel controls in a wide variety of vehicles to command select Eclipse radios.

Installation is straightforward — just connect a few wires, only 3 wires in many cars. The direct connection to the stereo means there's no need for an infrared emitter, allowing the SWI-ECL to function even in bright sunlight. Step-by-step LED confirmation makes programming easy. Once connected, the SWI-ECL's failsafe memory will learn up to 5 stereo functions, retaining them even if battery power is interrupted. Warranty: 1 year.

Important Note: Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this model is compatible with your vehicle. On some vehicles, you may need a voltmeter to locate the correct wires to connect to the SWI-ECL2. If you have no car audio installation experience, you should consider professional installation. The SWI-ECL2 is compatible with most 2005-up Eclipse stereos that are steering remote-ready, but please call or e-mail us to confirm compatibility with your radio.

Product Research

Features

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:

Acura Dodge Isuzu Mercury Pontiac
Audi Ford Jaguar Mini Cooper Plymouth
BMW GMC Kia Mitsubishi Saab
Buick Honda Land Rover Mercury Saturn
Cadillac Hummer Lexus Nissan Suzuki
Chevrolet Hyundai Lincoln Oldsmobile Toyota/Scion
Chrysler Infinity Mazda Harley Davidson Volkswagen

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 column
  • 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 leads.

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)
