About the Crux SWRHK-65S Wiring Interface

Keep your factory options

Crux's SWRHK-65S interface ensures that you can keep the factory steering wheel controls in select 2009-14 Hyundai or Kia models when installing an aftermarket radio. Connect this interface to the wires on your new stereo's wiring harness, and you've covered the power, ground, and factory speaker connections for your new stereo. You'll retain the use of your factory amplifier, if present. The interface also retains the auxiliary input in your Hyundai and Kia models, if your new car stereo has a rear aux input.

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

There are two steering wheel control harnesses included which will provide either a 3.5mm connector or light blue/yellow wire for your aftermarket radio. Only one will be used based on your type of aftermarket radio. There are also dip switches that will need to be set for your type of aftermarket radio.

Note: Please see the included instructions for which SWC harness and which dip settings to use for your brand of aftermarket head unit and type of vehicle.

Factory Aux Input Retention: The SWRHK-65S interface module will retain your vehicle's factory aux input through its stereo RCA jacks. Your aftermarket head unit will need to have a rear Aux input.

Q
Will this connect a Planet Audio P9640B aftermarket sterio to my 2012 Kia Forte factory stereo wiring set up?
[ Rain  Nov 04, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
If you have a compatible factory trim package, the Crux may be a recommended integration harness for you vehicle, sure. You'll need to connect the leads of the Crux to the leads of the aftermarket stereo's harness (packaged with the stereo). For additional assistance and personalized recommendations, feel free to contact us directly by phone or through our online chat service: https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx

Q
Is the factory USB retained for Kia Rio (2011)?
[ Jay  May 15, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
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.
[ Kenny  May 15, 2017 ]  Staff
Q
Are you able to use the factory microphone if using this interface?
[ Bennett  Sep 11, 2016 ]
2 answers
A
Sorry, no. Very few integration harnesses allow you to retain a factory Bluetooth microphone. The CRUX SWRHK-65S isn't one of them. I hope that helps. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5
[ Ryan  Sep 17, 2016 ]  Staff
A
No it doesn't work unfortunately. Also the Kenwood stereo I bought has a bad microphone. last the crutchfield interface only allows you to use half of your steering wheel functions.
