About the Crux CS-CR41 Wiring Interface

Install a new radio and keep your factory features

The Crux CS-CR41 interface allows you to install an aftermarket radio in select 2005-17 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Mitsubishi, and Volkswagen vehicles, with or without a factory amplifier. If you're installing a compatible Alpine, Boss, Blaupunkt, Clarion, Dual, Jensen, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer, Sony or Soundstream car stereo, you'll retain the use of your steering wheel audio controls (does not retain Uconnect, including phone and voice recognition steering wheel controls). The interface also offers the reverse and Vehicle Speed Sensor (V.S.S.) outputs that you'll need if you're installing a navigation receiver.

You'll only be able to retain your steering wheel audio controls with a compatible car stereo made by Alpine, Boss, Blaupunkt, Clarion, Dual, Jensen, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer, Sony or Soundstream. No other brands are currently compatible.

Notes:

  • The CS-CR41 includes two wiring harnesses for older and newer model vehicles. Only one of the wiring harnesses will be used for your particular vehicle.
  • The CRUX CS-CR41 does not retain Uconnect.

Amplified or Non-Amplified Systems: The CRUX CS-CR41 can be used in Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Mitsubishi, and Volkswagen vehicles with or without a factory amplified system. It does not support front and rear fading in vehicles with a factory amplified system.

Steering Wheel Control Retention: The CRUX CS-CR41 also features a steering wheel control output for Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood, JVC , Jensen, Dual/Axxera, Boss and other aftermarket head units. The steering wheel control output consists of a right-angle 3.5mm connector and a light blue/yellow wire (use the connection that your aftermarket head unit is fitted with). The Crux interface module will work with any of the listed aftermarket head units, by setting its three dip-switches (see owner's manual for appropriate setting).

Note: There are two steering wheel control harnesses; you will only use one based on the brand of your aftermarket stereo. Both feature a 4-pin connector which plugs into the interface module. One of the SWC harnesses is equipped with a 3.5mm connector and one blue/yellow wire (for Alpine/Clarion/JVC/Kenwood/Jensen/Dual/Boss), while the other is only equipped with a 3.5mm connector (for Pioneer/Sony).

Navigation Outputs: The CRUX CS-CR41 provides a Reverse Trigger wire and VSS (Vehicle Speed Sense) wire for simplifying the installation of an aftermarket navigation receiver.

Note: The CRUX CS-CR41 does not offer a Parking brake output wire.

Q
What is the micro usb port for on the module?
[ McClane  Jan 11, 2023 ]
1 answer
A
This port is useful for updating the firmware if you need to in the future, McClane. This is a great reason to choose Crux and to make sure you have a radio that is working well into the future!

Q
Is this compatible with the Pioneer DMH-130BT head unit?
[ Phillip  Apr 14, 2022 ]
1 answer
A
This Crux interface will work with that Pioneer radio to help install it and will also retain steering wheel radio controls! Other parts may be needed to help install that Pioneer receiver. We have advisors that can be reached by calling 1-800-324-9695 who can give a personal recommendation on all the gear needed to install it

Q
When I bought this last year for my 2015 Jeep Unlimited, the flash it came with did not allow me to remove the doors. The radio will not turn off. I can't figure out how to load a new flash. How can I get this fixed?
