Axxess XSVI-6522-NAV

Axxess' XSVI-6522-NAV interface ensures that you can keep the non-amplified factory speaker system in your 2007-up Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Mitsubishi vehicle when you replace the factory radio. Connect the wires from this interface to the wires on the new stereo's wiring harness, and your power, ground, and factory speaker connections are covered. If your vehicle has steering wheel audio controls and your new car stereo works with a steering wheel adapter, you can plug the Axxess ASWC-1 steering wheel control interface (sold separately) into this interface's pre-wired harness. That way, you can keep those handy factory controls working with your new radio.

The XSVI-6522-NAV wiring interface retains your Audible Blind Spot Detection system. It also offers the parking brake, reverse, mute, and Vehicle Speed Sensor (V.S.S.) outputs that you'll need if you're installing a navigation receiver. If you like your radio to keep playing after your vehicle is turned off, this interface also supports Retained Accessory Power (RAP) which keeps the music going until the door is opened.

Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this model is compatible with your vehicle.

Note: The XSVI-6522-NAV interface is designed to be used in these select vehicles without a factory amplified sound system or when replacing the entire factory amplifier system. The XSVI-6522-NAV does not retain your vehicle's factory amplifiers.

Product Features: The XSVI-6522-NAV retains your vehicle's factory R.A.P. (Retained Accessory Power) and provides accessory/illumination outputs, plus navigation outputs (parking brake/reverse/VSS) for aftermarket navigation head unit installation. In addition, the radio replacement interface supports your factory steering wheel controls via an optional interface module (sold separately). It even retains your vehicle's factory audible blind spot detection system.

  • Accessory + Illumination Outputs: There is no 12-volt accessory wire 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-6522-NAV is designed to provide a 12-volt, 10-amp switched accessory output (red wire), along with a illumination output (orange/white wire) to make installation simpler.
  • Navigation Outputs: The XSVI-6522-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-6522-NAV interface.
  • OEM Steering Wheel Control Compatible (optional): The XSVI-6522-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).
  • Blind Spot Detection: The XSVI-6522-NAV will retain your vehicle's factory audible blind spot detection system (if vehicle equipped).

Color Codes: Wiring up the XSVI-6522-NAV is like wiring up any other wire harness that would attach to an aftermarket radio's harness. The Metra/EIA wire code can be found on the back of the interface's package that will aid you in the wiring of your aftermarket radio The XSVI-6522-NAV interface contains the following wire leads.

A
I hate that manufacturers make it so hard to swap the factory head unit. I lived with the factory system and bluetooth adapters for 7 years because I wasn't sure an aftermarket system would work without this expensive adapter. Crutchfield softened the blow by discounting the adapter when purchased in a bundle. I don't have a factory amp, sub, or steering wheel controls. Essentially this saved me running power to the TPM or battery under the hood. [ Bryan  Feb 04, 2016 ]

Proper kit for vehicle. [ Samuel  Jan 17, 2016 ]

Q
What is that black box for?
[ Rich  May 11, 2016 ]
4 answers
A
The black box is the "interface". It helps keep the can bus system communication. Which is the communication between all of your modules (ie: ecm, bcm, and any other module your vehicle may have) The black box keeps retained accessory power, when the key turns off the radio stays on. It's important, if you enjoy the creature comforts you newer vehicle provides. If you don't care about those things, then.....there's way around it I suppose.
[ kelli  May 12, 2016 ]
A
I think it is used to keep the power on to the Radio similar to the stock stereo once the ignition has been turned off. I do know that it will automatically configure to the car once the ignition has been switched on for the first time. I installed one into my 2012 Ram, and one into my 2015 Ram (2015 Ram took a different part number), and both worked perfect. You could also try calling the Axxess Tech support. Im sure they could give you a definite answer.
[ DOUGLASS J  May 11, 2016 ]
A
The black box is the interface. After you wire everything up. The 12 point plugs into the box to allow you to keep your factory setting.
[ Jimmey  May 11, 2016 ]
A
That's the interface box the harness just plugs in, nothing to putting it in.
[ CAMERON  May 11, 2016 ]
Q
what is the 3.5mm plug coming off the harness used for? my pioneer stereo has one 3.5mm input but it is used for the bluetooth mic
[ kzink89  Dec 10, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
I'm not 100% sure, but I believe it may be there to connect to the universal steering wheel control interface, so you can still use the volume and stuff on the steering wheel.
[ Jesse  Dec 10, 2015 ]
Q
Where do you connect the red wire at on the back of a radio into this harness?
[ Scott  Nov 19, 2015 ]
3 answers
A
Depending on your vehicle the red wire is either 12V constant or the ignition wire. With that in mind you would connect your wire to either yellow for 12v or red for ignition.
[ ZackM  Mar 03, 2016 ]
A
I took everything to a local installing and they hooked up everything. Sorry I don't know the answer
[ Wolfgang  Nov 20, 2015 ]
A
This should connect to the red wire to the aftermarket stereo.
[ DOUGLASS J  Nov 20, 2015 ]
