Metra CHTO-01 Interface
Allows you to install a new stereo in 2005-up Chrysler-built vehicles with premium audio
Our take on the Metra CHTO-01 Interface by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
The Metra amplifier turn-on interface lets you install a high-powered aftermarket receiver into select 2005-up Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep vehicles without bypassing the premium factory system. The interface provides an amplifier turn-on signal and a 12-volt accessory power interface for the factory amp. Warranty: 1 year.
Note: Your new stereo must have two sets of preamp outputs to work with this interface (see Hands-on Research). If you haven't already, please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this adapter is compatible with your vehicle.
Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Metra CHTO-01 Interface Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The CHTO-01 interface is designed to be used in select Chrysler vehicles that have factory amplifiers; including Alpine, Boston Acoustics, and Infinity systems. Please see "Outfit My Car" for compatible applications. The interface allows you to install an aftermarket receiver in a compatible vehicle without bypassing the factory amp or replacing the factory speakers.
Note: The aftermarket radio must have two pairs of preamp outputs in order to properly interface with the CHTO-01. If it doesn't you will need to connect the receiver to a line output converter.
Retained Accessory Power: If your vehicle has the Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.) function, which supplies power to the radio after the ignition is shut off until one of the front doors is opened, this function is retained by the CHTO-01 harness.
