About the Crux SWRTY-61J Wiring Interface
Keep those factory options
You'll only be able to retain your steering wheel audio controls with a compatible car stereo made by Alpine, Clarion, Jensen, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer, or Sony. No other brands are currently compatible. Check the Details tab to see if steering wheel audio controls are retained in your vehicle.
Keep those factory options
Crux's SWRTY-61J interface ensures that you can keep the factory steering wheel controls and the factory JBL amplifier in your Toyota or Lexus when you install an aftermarket radio. Another plus — your Toyota's auxiliary input will still work with your new car stereo.

More details on the Crux SWRTY-61J Wiring Interface
Radio Replacement Interface for Toyota/Lexus/Scion: The CRUX SWRTY-61J is a radio replacement interface for select 2003-2011 Toyota, Lexus, & Scion vehicles with factory JBL amplifiers. It facilitates the integration of select aftermarket radios to enable retention of certain factory features when replacing a factory-installed radio. This enhanced interface retains the factory JBL amplifier, aux input, backup camera, and steering wheel controls.
Vehicle Compatibility: The CRUX SWRTY-61J is supported by the following 2003-2016 Toyota, Lexus and Scion vehicles; with factory JBL amplified systems (as of 2/15/20148).
Note: The CRUX SWRTY-61J comes with two wiring harnesses; only one will be used based on your make, model, year of vehicle.
Factory JBL Amplifier: The CRUX SWRTY-61J retains your vehicle's factory JBL amplifier system (fading capability will be lost). There is a variable audio gain adjustment to match the levels of the aftermarket radio and factory amplifier.
Steering Wheel Control Compatible: The CRUX SWRTY-61J features a steering wheel control output for compatible aftermarket head units - including Pioneer, Sony, Jensen, Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood, JVC, and Blaupunkt. 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 SWRTY-61J 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: The steering wheel control interface features two 4-pin connectors (labeled - "Pioneer/Sony" and "Alpine/Clarion/Kenwood/JVC"). You will only plug in one of these connectors to the interface module, based on the type aftermarket head unit you are installing.
Auxiliary Input Retention: For select vehicles, you get to keep the factory auxiliary (3.5mm) input. The included harness contains male stereo RCA connectors which plug into your aftermarket head unit's rear-panel Aux input. If your aftermarket head unit contains a 3.5mm Aux input, then you will need a female stereo RCA to male stereo minijack adapter cable (sold separately).
Backup Camera Retained: The CRUX SWRTY-61J will retain your vehicle's factory backup camera through your new aftermarket head unit's composite video backup camera input.
Wiring Harness: The included harness features the following wires which will need to be hardwired (solder or crimped) to your aftermarket head unit's wiring harness.
|Red||+12 Volt Accessory|
|Yellow||+12 Volt Constant|
|Red Black||VSS (Vehicle Speed Sense)|
