When you're a serious truck fanatic, you're not satisfied until you've got every accessory under the sun mounted in, on, or underneath your ride. And while having lots of ways to play with your toy is nice, it can be a hassle to keep track of all the different controllers for your 12-volt extras. Alpine's KAC-001 Truck Accessory Controller saves the day by allowing you to integrate command of up to 8 different accessories through the touchscreen display of your compatible Alpine Restyle car stereo.

Alpine KAC-100 Truck Accessory Controller

The Alpine KAC-001 Truck Accessory Controller lets you control up to eight different 12-volt accessories through your compatible Alpine stereo's touchscreen; here are just a few examples.

Works with many handy add-ons

Whether your accessories are for work, play, or a bit of both, the KAC-001 makes it easy to operate them from the driver's seat. This convenient controller offers fingertip command of myriad devices, including (but not limited to):

  • Winches
  • Motorized tonneau (bed) covers
  • Powered side steps
  • Air suspensions
  • Powered truck toolbox locks
  • LED lighting 
  • Headlights
  • Interior lights

Alpine even offers selectable on/off, continuous, or pulsed outputs for each device to give you optimum control and compatibility for your truck's extras. You can operate your devices safely and reduce the likelihood of potentially dangerous over- or under-powering.

Customized control

Once you've connected the KAC-001 between your devices and your Alpine stereo, you'll be able to pull up an accessory control screen through the stereo's menu display. You can then use easy-to-identify and customizable icons for each input, and label them as you see fit. You'll be showing off your truck's newest attractions in no time. Metal construction ensures the KAC-001 will withstand long-term use.

8-Channel Output Harness: The Alpine KAC-001 Truck Accessory Controller features eight individual (-) 250mA accessory outputs that are available to control eight relay-connected accessories. The accessories can be configured as Pulsed, Latched or Momentary Outputs.

Power & Ground Harness: The controller's 3-pin power & ground harness features a +12V battery lead (yellow), a +12V ignition lead (red), and a ground lead (black) which will need to be hardwired in the vehicle.

Q
How long is the 8 channel output harness? Will it reach my relay bank (near the battery in the engine area)
[ Gabriel  Feb 21, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
Maybe 1ft to 1.5ft long. You are going to need to run extra wire from each lead to each relay.
[ David  Feb 21, 2019 ]
A
Unfortunately it's probably not long enough to reach that far. It might be six feet at most. I had to run an extension from inside to get to my relay bank. One important thing to be aware of is that the Accessory Controller works using a negative ground signal, not a positive. I had to have a separate relay bank to convert the negative signal to a positive one since that's what my accessory relay bank was expecting to trigger the accessories.
[ tcowden  Feb 21, 2019 ]
Q
I purchased a alpine ILX-107 which is compatible with this controller. I talked to Charles from tech support and he says this controller will not work with my 2006 Ford e250. He said my truck is not compatible with the I-data link. And without the Idata link I cannot use this controller. I want to use this controller to controller accessories like a light bar, emerging strobe light, fog lights and other accessories. Why can't I use this controller it has nothing to do with the idata link does it? I am really confused.

Doug, I see no reason that this shouldn't work for you. If it works with your alpine unit it should work. All it is doing is sending a single to a relay which is supplying the power to what eve you want to power up .As far as I know it should work. Good luck. Lon
[ lon  Jul 22, 2018 ]

It does rely on the iDatalink ADR-MRR module to work. Yes, it has the relay ports to trigger the accessories, but won't know what to do with them without the iDatalink module My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101

Will this work on the ine-960 hdmi?

I am not 100%, however I cant see why not. Alpine is amazing and all thier accessories work very well and work very well together. I know that doesnt give you a definitive yes/no - i have the x209 and it works flawlessly (and its super bad a$$).
[ IVY  Jun 03, 2018 ]
Q
Will this work with the x009u?
[ titus  May 08, 2017 ]

This will depend largely on your vehicle. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation.
[ Kenny  May 08, 2017 ]  Staff
Q
Has this been verified to work with the Alpine i109-WRA yet? I am excited to purchase both. However I am not willing to make the investment until I know they work together.
[ Joshua  Jan 09, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
I'm afraid the Alpine KAC-001 Truck Accessory Controller would not work with the i109-WRA receiver. The KAC-001 would only work with the following Alpine touchscreen models: INE-W967HD, X108U, X110-SLV, X110-SRA, X109-WRA and the X109D. If you have further questions, feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
[ Larry  Jan 18, 2017 ]  Staff
Q
Can this be added to i109-WRA ?
[ Mohammed  Aug 31, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
As far as we can tell, the Alpine KAC-001 *should* work with the Alpine i109-WRA Restyle receiver. However, Alpine doesn't list the i109-WRA as a compatible model for the KAC-001 controller. We are trying to verify that for 100% certainty for you though, and will respond back with more info as soon as we have it. Thanks! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=159

Q
Is the unit environmentally sealed?
[ Travis  Mar 04, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
The Alpine KAC-001 Truck Accessory Controller was manufactured and designed to go into your vehicle's dash and integrate command of up to 8 different accessories through the touchscreen display of your compatible Alpine Restyle car stereo. There aren't any environmental specifications listed in the Owner's Manual, but if you'd like to find out more information about that your best bet would be to contact Alpine directly at 800-257-4631. I hope that helps. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=159
