Overview

Our take on the Metra XSVI-6502-NAV Wiring Interface

Installing an aftermarket receiver in some late model Chrysler vehicles requires a switched accessory power supply. This Metra XSVI-6502-NAV interface supplies the necessary accessory power lead, plus the other wires you'll need to hook up a new car stereo. The interface also contains the parking brake wire, VSS wire, and other wires that you'll need to hook up a navigation receiver. Warranty: 1 year.

Features

Overview: The Axxess XSVI-6502-NAV replacement OEM radio interface allows you to install an aftermarket radio in select Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Mitsubishi vehicles. In these vehicles, there are no 12-volt accessory wires in the factory harness, which requires the installer to run an accessory wire to the fuse box or underneath the steering column when installing an aftermarket radio. The XSVI-6502-NAV is designed to provide a 12-volt, 10-amp switched accessory output (red wire), along with a dimmer wire (orange/white wire).

Note: Please consult the Crutchfield Car Selector to see if your vehicle and aftermarket headunit is compatible.

Navigation Ready: The XSVI-6502-NAV provides essential wires required for aftermarket radios that have navigation. VSS (Vehicle Speed Sense), Reverse, and Parking Brake wires are provided. This helps to cut down the installation time, since the installer does not have to look for these wires in the vehicle.

Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.): The Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.) function supplies power to the radio after the ignition is shut off until one of the front doors are opened. This function is retained by the XSVI-6502-NAV interface.

OEM Steering Wheel Control Compatible (optional): The XSVI-6502-NAV interface features a right-angle 3.5mm connector that lets you keep your vehicle's OEM steering wheel controls via the optional Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface (120ASWC1, sold separately).

Note: The Axxess ASWC steering wheel control interface supports the following aftermarket headunit manufactures - Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Kenwood, Eclipse, JVC, Clarion, Dual, Jensen, Visteon, and Valor. The aftermarket headunit must have a SWC (Steering Wheel Control) 3.5mm input.

Vehicle Compatibility: The XSVI-6502-NAV replacement OEM radio interface module is compatible with the following Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Mitsubishi vehicles.

Note: The XSVI-6502-NAV interface is designed to be used in Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Mitsubishi vehicles without a factory amplified sound system or when replacing the entire factory amplifier system. The XSVI-6502-NAV does not retain your vehicle's factory amplifiers.
