No issues. Worked as designed
Works perfectly on my 2002 Lexus ES300
Could not find a harness to connect to my 2009 Lexus GX470 with non-navigation, non JBL factory unit. The harness manufacturer (Metra) told me "sorry we don't make a harness for your 470". I asked CRUTCHFIELD just in case and Otis responded "Looked into it for you and the TYTO-01 will 100% work with that Lexus" He was correct. He also recommended I try the Posi-connectors. CORRECT AGAIN! Install went great and I actually enjoyed it. Modernized our GX with Bluetooth, Backup Camera, etc and we LOVE it! Thank you again CRUTCHFIELD!
Pros: Made installation clean and simple.
Perfect fit. Exactly what I needed.
Pros: Perfect fit for my factory harness.
Perfect Worked great the 1st time.
Doesn't work well horrible installation instructions for my application and the end result is bad sound after installation. Do yourself a favor and just bypass the amp you'll be much happier.
Pros: None really
Cons: Horrible instructions horrible sound quality just an all around bad product.Crutchfield response on 8/7/2017 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to Kenneth to help him further. We'll either help him get the interface working the way it should, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.
Like others who have struggled with this interface, I also had difficulties in several areas. First of all, the instructions that came with the first interface kit that I received were vague. What was worse, the wrong cable harnesses were included in the interface kit; they didn't fit the Axxess interface unit, or match with anything else! I returned this kit after contacting Crutchfield Tech Support (great bunch of guys!), and received a replacement interface the next day. The replacement kit had the correct cable harnesses, and even better instructions, though one wire in the 20-pin interface to the vehicle is unused, and is not mentioned in the instructions. The replacement kit enabled me to finish my installation, and all is well at this point. I cannot give the supplier of this interface kit anything more than 3 stars for the simple reason that the supplier seems to lack quality control. I'm not the first customer to have received the wrong wiring harnesses and/or poor instructions. This supplier needs to rise to Crutchfield's standards.
Pros: Works as claimed, after problems are worked out.
Cons: Poor quality control: kit was sent with wrong wiring harnesses and older, less complete instructions. Crutchfield Tech Support replaced the faulty kit within a day.
This harness did the trick! I followed instructions for connecting it to my Lexus stereo wires, and it worked great!
Pros: The instructions were clear
Easy to install and absolutely necessary for my truck with the jbl stereo system.
Pros: Easy, color coded wiring
Cons: Need to have basic wiring skills
Worked. No problems. Directions were clear and easy.
Beautiful! Instructions were very easy to follow and simple to connect the wires with good connectors.
Pros: Makes connecting the new unit to the Toyota JBL system very easy.
Cons: There is one wire the instructions do not tell you what to do with it. It would be helpful if they were a little more detailed as to what the wires are for.
It does what its suppose to do. If connected correctly it will definitely work.
Simple and Clear. I had no idea how much was going to be required so I'll be very explicit with what it took to install in my 2002 IS300. With your new head unit, it will come with a plug that goes into your new head unit and has blank wires coming out. The manual for this product tells you exactly how to wire the wires from this product to your new head units blank wires. The wires from this product are pre-spliced, and the colors matched exactly my Sony head units blank wires, so all you need to do is match the colors with the wires from your head unit, splice the wires from your head unit, and use bell caps to connect the wires (you must buy these, or use solder and heat shrink, bell caps are much easier, look them up online if you dont know how to use them). Some wire are not used depending on your vehicle, use head shrink to seal them off so nothing shorts. Once all your wires are connected, get your unit and new trim in place, and plug everything in, and test your unit to make sure it works. Before you do anything in your car disconnect the battery. My IS300 stock unit had two antenna wires, the one that wasnt used with my new unit I just taped up. This product is easy to use and if you have any background working on cars or any bit of mechanical inclination you should be able to handle it. ONE WIRE IS NOT MENTIONED IN THE INSTRUCTIONS. Black with white stripe, I just sealed it off with heat shrink.
Pros: Clear instrutions, easy color code matching, makes head unit install super easy.
Cons: One wire is not mentioned in the instructions, just tape it up its not used.
Easy connection between car module and Pioneer AVH-4200NEX system. I have a 2008 Lexus RX350 stock radio/CD system that I was upgrading and there are three wiring bundles that provide connections to the stock radio. The Axxess wiring interface was great for connecting the new radio. However, there was instruction to connect a resistor between wires to support climate control system. The instructions for doing this required some detective work. Ideally, the interface kit would have provided a good method of connecting to the other wire bundle from the car. I cut the interface out of the old radio and soldered the resistor to this so that I did not have to modify the bundle from the car. Everything works great!
Pros: Primary connections between new system and car wiring bundle are easy and documentation is good.
Cons: Installation of resistor to support climate controls not as intuitive and no easy connection to existing car wire bundle.
This worked perfectly for my 2002 Lexus IS300. If you have a 2001 though there is a couple extra steps but 2002 to 2005 is pretty self explanatory
Pros: Color match wiring (most)
Cons: None so far
Easy to install. Good instructions.
Used this to interface between a new pioneer radio and my Lexus RX330. With a few phone call to Tech support I was able to make all the correct wiring connections. Hopefully it will continue to work after a few months
Pros: Easy to wire up / documentation.
Great product. Wires up easliy.
Pros: Easy to wire and works perfectly.
I have had nothing but trouble with this product. It worked well at first, but within 3 months speakers started dropping out. Checked all my wiring and found when i moved the box the speakers would cut in and out. Called Crutchfield about my problem and they sent me another one. I wired the new one in and the same thing. Worked great for a couple months and now speakers are dropping out and its getting worse. I'll be looking for a better product to replace this.
Pros: Easy to wire up
Cons: Sounds awful
What I have to say about this, was that due to my inexperience I ordered the wrong harness. I called the tech department and they help me figure it out. They were great in aiding me to get a new one. Great service!!!
The adapter was not exactly what I envisioned ... I thought it had plugs on both ends ... but, with a little help from Crutchfield support (fast and knowledgeable) everything went together the first try without a hitch.
Pros: Easy to assemble
Cons: Required help matching radio wires to adapter wires ... written instructions did not synch with info provided with radio
Necessary for modern CAN BUS wiring systems. I was not aware that my '06 Tundra has a factory amplifier! So I did not have that wired between my new Blaupunkt New Jersey head unit and this wiring interface initially. But a call to Crutchfield fixed that issue. This has the ability to adjust bass volume between head unit and the amplifier, a neat feature. That means you can adjust the "mid" volume level using the adjusting screw on this unit. Everything is well labeled, although some of the wires that were not used did not match the color descriptions in the instructions. All the wires that were used were all color coordinated between the head unit and this unit.
Pros: works as advertised, simple color matching installation
Cons: just had to make sure all the wires necessary for operation were connected (ie the amplifier wires for the amplifier I didn't realize I had!)
This was easy to use and made it very easy to install the radio.
Pros: Great and easy to use. Color coded and just easy
Does the magic and it all works perfectly
Used on 2005 Toyota 4Runner with a JVC unit. Seemed a bit daunting at first having to connect so many wires, but color coding made it a breeze. Make sure to order the posi-connectors that pop-up as a suggested purchase - they were a lifesaver. Crutchfield support will get you through the tough spots.
Easy to install, instructions were easy to understand. Wiring interface was able to interface the new head unit with my 2004 Tundra.
Easy to install
First off Crutchfield is always on top of their game ! Great people and fast shipping . Product was simple and easy to install and great price , thank you .
Pros: Easy install
Not quite sure whether this is the correct harness for my 2002 Lexus es300 but it was what was recommended to go along with that vehicle (no premium sound or nav). The wires certainly don't match up with the speaker wires on my radio.
Cons: Bad instructions and mismatched wire codesCrutchfield response on 10/26/2016 Jeff contacted out tech support team, and we sent him a different harness for his Lexus. If you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our tech support team right away. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
I usually don't write reviews, but the headache this product caused me made we write this one. Do not buy these products. Much better to cut speaker wires coming out of JBL amp and tap into those.
Pros: None. I cannot recommend this device at all.
Cons: Poor sound quality.. Front speakers periodically cut out due to this interface. Bad connector on this device. Could never find it or a loose wire. With JBL amp, cut the speaker wires coming out of amp and connect to your head unit or an amp . I used head unit amp and it sound twice better than the JBL amp in combination with this interface. Also, you have to leave the JBL amp in place with factory connectors plugged in, otherwise steering wheel controls will not work with adapter.
Great harness which makes installation simple. Install complete in about a hour.
Pros: Easy install.
Cons: Requires gain adjustment prior to finishing install.
New radio was a Christmas present from my daughter. Her son has researched and gone to many stereo stores, etc trying to find the right cables etc so he could enstall radio/cd player!!! Finally he found your website!!! And, guess what? He got the unit installed yesterday!!! Thanks s much!!!
The piece of gear is defective. The speakers cut in/out. All connections were verified and were tight. If Crutchfield has any recommendation for an alternate device, please advise.
Cons: The piece of gear is defective. The speakers cut in/out. All connections were verified and were tight. If Crutchfield has any recommendation for an alternate device, please advise.Crutchfield response on 6/28/2016 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Was simple to assemble, there is one wire on 20pin connector "black with white stripe" that instructions don't even mention, and if your car is equipped with factory GPS it will not work after installing of this
Pros: You can use factory amp
Cons: Dose not tell you GPS won't work ,and no explanation of extra wireCrutchfield response on 5/24/2016 If you purchased this product from Crutchfield, feel free to contact our Tech Support team. They can walk you through the installation. Our toll-free Tech Support number is printed on your invoice, and is also available under the "My Orders" tab in the "My Account" section of our website.
I finally got around to complete the install in my truck. This unit doesn't work properly. I had a completely stock (everything) truck. Stock wiring (bought the truck brand new) stock 6 disc in-dash JBL stereo with the stock JBL amp and subwoofer. When I went to an aftermarket media player (because my stock stereo didn't have Bluetooth or a spot to plug in a MP3 device)... It all went haywire when I hooked this little box up to my factory harness. The first one I plugged in would only play sound out one side of the speakers, but if I shook it (it rattles when you shake it (normal I guess) it would intermittently play out all the speakers. So I called Crutchfield and they sent me out another one immediately and I had the same issue. All my wiring was soldered and heat shrink, so I cut it all back out and redid it (for fun) just in case. I ended up swapping the positive and negative speaker wire inputs on one channel only (input side to this unit) and it started playing out all speakers. It sounds terrible, I can't use the balance or fader (because of swapping the wire polarity) and it makes a loud hiss when I first turn on the stereo and a crackle noise on the RF speaker when I hit a bump. So I wrapped the unit in foam and zip tied it to the large wire harness behind the OE stereo. Still nothing but problems. Put stock JBL stereo back in and NO issues at all. I Read the instructions 10+ times. It was installed correctly, just doesn't work!
Pros: Loud hiss noise from speakers so you know exactly when you turn your stereo on. Crackling noise from speakers lets you know when you hit a bump.
Cons: Spent hours of pure enjoyment just to put the stock stereo back in.
Works as advertised and way less wiring headache than the bypass harness.
Pros: Easy to install. Works.
Cons: None that I can think of.
This went in with 0 issues! There was no drama, no futzing around trying to find something not working properly. I took my time to make sure the wiring connections were correct. I did the firmware update before installing anything. (Always update firmware first on modern electronics!) I putzed with the potentiometer to get the gain set so there was no over-driving (distortion) for a few minutes. The biggest issue was positioning it in the dash where it was out of the way and still left plenty of wiring harness to easily connect the radio & that was not that hard.
Pros: Easy to use. Worked perfectly on the first try.
Overall the unit does turn on the existing JBL amp, however, it is very slow to respond to fader commands, and produces a "hiss" on the front speakers when I have the fader turned all to the back. I can only hope a firmware update would help with this.
Pros: Fit the existing harness Turns on the JBL amp
Cons: Slow to respond Causes extra noise
the cable connected perfectly. everything works as stated by techication
Easy to follow instructions
Pros: Easy to follow instruction
Works better than advertised. The Crutchfield page said that I'd lose the sound from the navigation system. Turns out they were wrong, the nav system speaks like a champ. The only thing I lost was some confirmation beeps when pressing buttons. Very pleased with the system, and with the information from Cruchfield's site about what parts are needed.
Good for a week & then started having popping & other distortions. Sounded like bad speaker but not the case.
Pros: Good sound when first installed.
Cons: Didn't last long. Three weeks.Crutchfield response on 3/21/2016 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, especially a situation like this, please contact our Customer Support team. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.
Easy to setup and install, worked like a champ.
Pros: Easy setup Good instructions Worked exactly and described
Cons: Can be hard to find space in tight dash
The real brain of the replacement job. This made life so easy with my aftermarket install.
Great kits! I have bought two different types of Axxess kits. They are easy to hook up when you figure out where all the wires goes. The instructions are vague. I had to contact Crutchfield for more info. Axxess website is not much help on wiring issues. But if you need a kit to get a aftermarket head unit in your vechicle, then Axxess is the way to go!!
Pros: easy to install, once you figure it out.
Cons: Instructions need to be more informative.
Easy to install by just matching up the colors. Very Easy.
Cons: Little pricey, but Crutchfield gave me a discount.
Instructions were very clear and product has worked fine from the first install.
Pros: Clear instructions, quality build
This adapter loom is quite easy to wire into the new or replacement radio CD player's wiring. I soldered all connectors and used shrink tubing to assure trouble free installation. That way I could jump start the installation process by doing the wiring the night before installing the new radio/CD/Media player. A real time saver and it assures reliability.
Pros: Easy, quick, efficient, and secure. Well marked wires made connecting to the new radio simple and straight forward.
Cons: None that I could think of other than the factory radio/CD/tape player has separate Am and FM antenna connectors.
Great product! Works well and haven't had any problems. Had to call technical support to make sure it would fit before installing, and their agents were extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend in a 4th gen 4Runner.
Pros: Easy install Works 100%
Pros: Works great
This worked perfectly.
After much research on the Internet, I decided on this product. It was installed into a 2009 Tacoma with JBL stereo. The head unit was replaced with a Sony aftermarket. No issues with install. Easy instructions. Turned the key and all speakers including factory amp worked. I highly recommend purchasing this product if you're interested in maintaining the factory amp. Quick shipping.
I used this to upgrade my stock 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser with JBL head unit with a Kenwood ddx9902s DVD player. The Axxess TYTO-01, comes with easy to follow instructions, and recognized the car and Kenwood head unit easily. No issues on install what so ever. There is a adjustment so you can adjust the volume level out. I just left it at the position the Axxess TYTO-01 came with and it works just fine. My only complaint is now I realize how crappy the stock speakers are .. I'll be upgrading the speakers soon through Crutchfield.
Pros: Easy Install, No messing with flashing or fighting to get the unit to recognize car or head unit.
Cons: Would be nice if it came directly connected to a stock Toyota wiring harness .. less soldering that way.
Had to call Customer Support to verify a couple of wires that weren't addressed in the instructions, but otherwise it worked great!
Pros: Ease of installation, price
Cons: None, kit worked great
The Axxess TYTO-01, was easy to hook up and works well.
Pros: Easy to hook up. Plug and play.
Cons: No Cons.
Made installation seamless. Sounds better than factory sound.
Pros: Worked great with our upgraded JBL sound system.
Installation and wiring were easy and straight forward. For our installation the the factory amp and speakers were found to be poor quality. Crutchfield was great at allowing return of a lot of the components. We wound up purchasing different speakers and a 5 Chanel amp to power the system.
This was a an easy accessory to attach. Crutchfield has a good thing going.
Pros: Everything was great
Part was defective in wiring harness. Returned with no problem.
Pros: Easy wiring and integration.
Cons: Unit I received was defective. Returned with no problem.
Super simple to wire into my stereo harness. And the ability to control the power from the amp right on this remote is awesome. I only wish there was a way to adjust the power from the amp after installation other than having to take the headset back out to get to the remote.
Pros: Amazing sound Simple to wire Great control over power of amp
Cons: No way to adjust amp power after installation
Wires color coded perfect for an easy installation.. I did all the connections before taking apart the car.. Was simple once the old radio was removed just needed to plug everything together no playing around with wires inside the dash! Make sure you check the volume dial is turned up.. took me a day to realize why the volume was low and distorted when the radio was at max.. Once I turned that little blue dial all was well again... o and make sure the plugs are completely clipped in. otherwise every bounce you'll lose sound.. I needed to wire tie one of the plugs in place..
Cons: one of the plugs needed help staying in. the clip on the harness would keep the plug in.. Used a wire tie and no problems since..
Sounds great! Installed in a 2010 Highlander with JBL Sound System.
Pros: Makes the JBL speakers sound great with factory amp.
Easy install and directions. Great product for an odd ball truck. Recommend it.
This interface (unlike the PAC SWI-RC, which I installed at the same time) has clear instructions and is easy to wire and install. Wires are conveniently pre-stripped. Some wires from the aftermarket radio connect to different sides which makes for slightly more of a rat's nest than it strictly needs to be. But on the whole a good product.
Great price for a phenomenal wiring harness.
Pros: Great price Awesome instructions Good color coding Simple to figure out
Cons: doesnt come with connectors.
This product came with very clear, easy-to-understand documentation, and was very install to install.
Pros: Great documentation, easy to install
When I got it and started reading the instructions I was a little overwhelmed at first. I had also bought the steering wheel control kit as well so it felt like I had a mess of wires. After I sat down with my head unit (Kenwood DNX 692) and laid everything out I did a dry run and felt much more at ease. I decided to go with a soldering iron and and heat shrink to cover the soldered pieces. A little tedious but it turned out great. Everything went together and works great
Pros: Colors are well matched to standard colors, instructions are fairly clear, plenty of slack on wires
Cons: Could use some double-sided tape to mount in dash
Works like a charm in my 04 Tundra with the JVC sound system
Pretty straight forward and worked without a hitch.
Cons: Be ready to splice
The instructions tell me to tape off the light-green wire on the adapter, as it will not be used. On the stereo is a light-green wire to be connected to the parking brake wire sensor. I called tech support and was told to connect it to the light-green wire on the adapter, which I did; unfortunately, this didn't allow me to use the features when the emergency brakes are engaged. I called again as was told by support that the wire was supposed to be connected to the red (with white stripe) wire located above the pivot of my pedal emergency brake. Other than this issue, the install was flawless.
Cons: Confusion with light-green wires between stereo and adapter, which are not supposed to be connected
Instructions good, connections worked as necessary - only complaint is that the pieces to crimp the wires together are not included in this kit - why not?! Was hoping for a complete installation without a trip to the hardware store.....
Pros: instructions good, connections worked
Cons: no pieces to connect the wires in the kit?! This needs to be changed or something noted during the order process that these must be purchased separately.
2007 Lexus RX400h there are eight speakers driven by the factory amp (which is a pioneer type D amp) over six outputs. From the TYTO-1 there are four speaker connections from your new headunit to the amp, FL, FR, RL and RR. This is what I expected the TYTO-1 to sort out, the four input to six output issue.... but it did it backwards. Let me explain, from the amp there are six outputs, two outputs drive the left and right 3/4" tweeters and 3" midrange speakers (which are wired in serial), two outputs drive the front door left and right 6x9" woofers and two outputs drive the back door left and right 6.5" speakers. This actually makes for a pretty good setup if it works properly as you have your front six speakers setup up to create a better sound balance. With the factory headunit, I imagine this is what is happening. However, this ability to balance the channels is lost with a new headunit and the TYTO. Instead, because the headunit and the TYTO only allow for four outputs, the Axxess actually controls and rear door speakers and the front door woofers as if they are both rear door speakers!! I realize that without a headunit with a minimum of six speaker outputs, true control of all three channels on the amp is impossible, but i assumed that at the very least the TYTO would be smart enough to pair my front speakers together and not split them apart to be paired with the rears!! Not a smart setup. Btw, always solder your wires.
Pros: Easy setup, instructions were great except for a typo that said 20-pin harness instead of 14-pin harness.
Cons: Pairs front woofers with rear speakers.
Everything lined up the way it should
Pros: Made life simple
For a first time stereo installer, this was easy to use and was one of the more straightforward parts of the whole process.
Pros: Good instructions
Cons: Small wires
Missing description for 1 wire, otherwise, a great kit. Works great, no issues at all.
Easy to install the one i got for my 05 toyota tundra had a illumination wire one review said theirs didn't have one. Wire it plug it play it
Pros: easy to install
Easy to follow instructions. Pictures were clear and instructions referenced diagrams that made understanding much easier. My radio had two plugs, and the adapter harness only referenced and utilized one.
Pros: Color matched and easy tip follow instructions.
Cons: One wire not used or referenced. Sounds pot adjustment a pain.
Easy to install. Just match colored wires with your stereo. Check out YouTube for advice. The connector to the car's harness was a bit of work to connect, but finally got it. Makes the whole install easier. Don't pay full price.
Simple install. Gave it 4 stars b/c it did not supply a Illumination wire, but called Crutchfield and tech was able to give me the color code to the factory harness that i could tap in to.
Pros: simple install
Cons: lack of illumination
Could no have been easier. Plug and play
Pros: Easy install. Work great
Cons: Instructions aren't great but then again there's no much to installing
Pretty good part, very easy installation since it comes with RCA connector. I did not even have to worry about ripping/soldering cable. just plug & play.
Pros: Easy to install, well-labeled on individual wire.
Cons: If it came with written instruction paper, it should be perfect!
This was a big help in the installation.
This little dude made it all come together.
Pros: It was easy to install. It had a power adjustment.
Cons: It was expensive but Crutchfield cut it in half
Great product that allowed easy connection from existing factory wiring to my new Sony unit. Great instructions, easy installation, and immediate success.
Pros: Quick and easy install Easy to follow instructions
Works well with my '05 Tundra, only problem is that the volume adjustment screw was turned all the way down, When first installing check the screw.
Pros: Works well and allows my factory amp to work with my new stereo
Cons: No markings on volume screw
Great product, makes installation seamless and eliminates having to cut your factory harness.
Pros: Product is as advertised. At the discounted price this product is worth the money.
Cons: Does not offer enough channels to handle all speakers in my vehicle (Lexus RX) when you adjust the settings for sound from front to rear and left to right certain adjustments do not play sound where it should be. I have checked my installation of connecting the wires multiple times so its not an installation error.
I am very pleased with the quality of this product. The only thing I could do better would be to replace the factory speaker system, which is not worth the hassle. I am thinking of usign this in another one of my Toyota vehicles.
Pros: Ease of installation, clear concise instructions.
Cons: None that I can recall.
Product works as described once pin was reinstalled in car side connector. Was able to find this same product for less than 50$ on amazon so maybe you should try price matching too some extent and I would def purchase more from y'all.
Cons: Pin in harness had to be reinstalled and product was overpriced.
Overview: The TYTO-01 interface is designed to allow you to replace the OEM radio with an aftermarket head unit in select 2001 and later Toyota and Lexus vehicles and retain the use of the JBL and JBL Synthesis amplified audio systems. Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.
Connections: The TYTO-01 interface module includes a 14-pin to 20-pin Toyota/Lexus harness which plugs into the TYTO-01 interface module and your vehicle's factory radio harness. This same harness also has 12-volt constant (yellow), 12-volt accessory (red), ground (black), and illumination (orange) leads that tie into your aftermarket head unit's harness. The interface also includes a 16-pin harness which plugs into the TYTO-01 interface module and is wired to the remote turn-on and speaker level outputs of the aftermarket head unit.

The other choice to replace my radio in my 2006 Tundra was a harness with 17 feet of cable...I didn't really want to rewire 17 feet of cable in my truck to replace a radio....this harness looks like I can keep the existing wiring in the truck and simply plug into it at the dash. I'm hoping it works well, and I don't have to consequently order the other more complicated looking harness. Fingers crossed! [ chris Jan 05, 2017 ]

Ugh! I can't even tell you the time I spent messing with this thing on my Toyota. Crutchfield did send me another one just to see if it was me or the unit. I gave up. This module that's supposed to hook up to you factory speakers and amp is terrible. I'm not the only one who has had issues. [ Brent Aug 17, 2017 ]

I asked the manufacturer and this was their reply: The Black/White is a ground wire, but only ground it if you're getting ground noise from your system. Grounding it before hand may induce noise. So basically, leave it disconnected and if everything works you're good. If you have noise you can try grounding it. [ AlexK May 10, 2016 ]
