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.

Retains Factory Amps: The CRUX SWRHK-65S interface will retain your vehicle's factory amplifier and fade control (when applicable).

Steering Wheel Control Retention: The CRUX SWRHK-65S comes pre-programmed to retain the factory steering wheel controls in your vehicle. The SWC harness consists of a right-angle 3.5mm connector and blue/yellow wire; you'll only use the connection type your aftermarket radio is equipped with. There is also steering wheel control (SWC) adapter for aftermarket radios with a 3-wire steering wheel control input. The SWRHK-65S will work with any of the listed aftermarket radio brands that feature a steering wheel control input using the appropriate harness, connector, and dip-switch settings (see owner's manual for appropriate settings).

  • 3.5mm Connector: Alpine, Clarion, Dual, Jensen, Pioneer, and Sony
  • Blue/Yellow Wire: Kenwood and JVC
  • 3-Wire Adapter: Other aftermarket radios (like Boss) with SWC Key 1, SWC Key 2, and SWC Ground wires
  • Green Wire (LIN-Bus): Not Used (tape off).

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.

Antenna Adapter: The SWRHK-65S provides a motorola to 2-wire antenna adapter to retain your vehicle's factory antenna.

Q
Will this cause any issues when connecting an aftermarket 4 ohm head unit to the factory amp (I believe to be a 2ohm amp) which then goes out to 8 2ohm speakers? The car is a 2010 Kia Soul ! I am worried about screwing up the stereo.

The head won't be affected but the sound will. I did it and I got very low volume. The sound quality will be really bad. I guess it'll depend of the brand of your system. That happened to my JBL system on my Tundra.

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.

Q
Will this work with a 2010 Hyundai Genesis Sedan without Navigation?
[ Shawn  Oct 01, 2021 ]

No, not the sedan. Check the literature. You can download a pdf on the item page at crutchfield. It says the coupe 2010 YES, but the sedan NO.

Q
will this work with a BossBV755BLC? it is a suggested product that I added to my cart
[ Filthbert R  May 04, 2021 ]

It should as we program our web site to consider both the radio and the vehicle its being installed into before recommending installation parts. We also have advisors that can be reached by calling 1-800-324-9695 who will be happy to double check the compatibility of them.
[ Paul  May 22, 2021 ]  Staff
Q
I have an AVIC-W8400NEX that I will be installing in my 2011 Kia Soul. I have a subwoofer and stereo controls. Which mounting bezel is needed and how do I connect the stereo to the factory wiring harness? Thank you
[ Khallida  Mar 22, 2021 ]

We carry this gear as well as a couple other parts that can be used with the right radio to keep other existing abilities working in your Kia but the one thing we don't have is a mounting kit that will give us the space in the dash to fit this radio body and the wiring parts/plugs. If you would like to get the list of all the vehicle specific parts, I recommend contacting an advisor by calling 1-800-324-9695 to get a personalized list for your specific Kia.

Q
Will this work with pioneer avh-4200nex?
[ Alec  Aug 19, 2019 ]

It will depend on the exact year, make and model of the vehicle you are installing it in but yes, it should be compatible with that Pioneer.
[ Cosmo  Sep 11, 2019 ]  Staff
A
yes , it worked great for me
[ Cynthia  Sep 10, 2019 ]
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
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.
