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.

Cons: 2 connectors are the same size and one of them is not used when you don't have steering wheel controls. The instructions could be a little more clear on which plug not to use.

Wish there was a more basic wiring harness for Jeep Wranglers that don't have an Infinity Sound System or steering controls. I still used this harness since I couldn't find other......with quite bit of wires leftover.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Nearly Nonexistent instructions as mentioned in other reviews. Thank goodness for online videos! 2 bundles of wires with same connector... one with SWC tag. If you're a novice like me, SWC means Steering Wheel Control. I don't have that, but if you do, I assume you'd use that bundle and tuck the other out of the way. Either way, the item does what it's supposed to once you get through the lack of instructions.

Pros: Easy interface

Cons: Minimal instructions

Made install easy

Crutchfield customer from Raleigh, NC on 2/3/2017

2009 Jeep Wrangler

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This made the install much easier. I wired it except for the one antenna wire on the bench and then plugged in two connectors and was done. Like one of the other reviews pointed out the directions about the black box could've been better. I kinda figured it out the the SWC labeled wires were steering wheel controls and plugged the other plug into the black box. I didn't knock a star off just for that

Pros: Made wiring on the bench possible. In my case blue to blue, black to black, grey to grey couldn't have been easier

Cons:

The instructions that come with this need some work. The wiring is strait forward but there's no explanation for the black box that is included. I wasted way too much time trying to get my new deck to work because I didn't know where to hook the box up.

Pros: Matched factory plug. Color coding matched the deck wiring.

Cons: Poor instructions.

Metra XSVI-6522-NAV Interface

Crutchfield customer from Newton, KS on 1/26/2017

2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Giving it three stars because it did make the connection of the radio wires to the factory plug quick and easy but I would give it 2 stars for completing the wiring and working. You need 12v acc to turn the radio on and this kit is supposed to supply that with the interface. It did not and when I called tech support they assumed it was a bad interface so they sent me another one and it did not work. So I had to find a 12v acc source on my own and hook up a separate wire. Then it all worked (radio). I was very disappointed when they had to send me another harness and then they sent it regular ground, I had everything apart and this was on a Wednesday and so I did not receive the replacement until Monday, I feel they could have at least sent it next day since it was on them and no fault of mine. Plus when the second one did not work they didn't even offer to replace or refund me my money, I had to pay for this harness since it has the interface that I was supposed to have to be a simple plug and play. This was on my 2007 Jeep JK.

Pros: Quick and clean way to connect wires

Cons: Interface did not work

Very complete harness, but instructions could be better.

Rick C from Bremerton, Wa on 6/30/2016

2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a pretty big harness which is difficult to stuff into the dash. I've used other harnesses on other vehicle installs that didn't seem so bulky. The plus side of this is that the harness is very complete and covers virtually all functions of the newer aftermarket stereos (including NAV). The instructions do not clearly address the little black box, but it must be connected for the harness to work - even thought it doesn't seem obvious that the wires going to it are necessary. It is also important to turn the key on for 30 seconds and then turn it off. This apparently initializes the little black box. The instructions mention this but almost as a footnote rather than YOU MUST DO THIS. Also, the little black can apparently be updated via USB but there are no instructions on how to do it or why you would need to do it.

Pros: Very complete - covers all functions of newer aftermarket stereos (including Navigation)

Cons: Lacking instructions regarding the mystery black box.

This wiring harness worked flawlessly. It was a breeze to wire up and install, just like every other product I've purchased from Crutchfield. Even better yet was the fact that when I had a question about the wiring their customer service people didn't hesitate to answer my questions and knew about my new radio unit.

Pros: Customer service, wires were color coated and easy to match up.

Cons: There really wasn't any.

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The product works great once installed. Installation was a little confusing as there are two black plugs that are the same. The instructions aren't clear as to which plug goes into the unit. Clear instructions were not included with the product or with the instructions provided by Crutchfield. The solution wasn't too difficult. It didn't work with one of the plugs, so I tried the other and it powered on. Instructions for connecting individual wires were complete and easy to follow.

Pros: Incomplete instructions

Cons: Easy integration Works great

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Not a whole lot to say other than this device allows me to use my Clarion head unit in my Chrysler vehicle. This device has a lot of wiring with it but half the wiring I didn't need due to my head unit not being a navigation receiver. Also if you don't have steering wheel control, again some wiring won't be used. I just thought I'd share that info since all that wiring could be a bit overwhelming for some people. Took me a few minutes to figure out but after that no problems.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have a 2012 Jeep Wrangler. This wiring harness did not work perfectly; it required some modification to work on my Jeep. Specifically, the Jeep does not have a dedicated power Red line; the power is somehow ran through the other wires. The harness, however, has a power line so we needed to somehow send power to the harness. We ended up running the power from the cigarette lighter. Was not too difficult but definitely should not have been necessary.

Pros:

Cons: See above.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Perfect fit between my JVC KD-X320BTS aftermarket head unit and my 2010 Jeep Patriot. There are alternate connectors for cars with navigation or rear back-up cameras which I did not require. I mated the head unit to the harness in my house in about 20 minutes and then took literally 1 second to connect to the cars harness and it worked instantly. The harness comes with a wired microphone to hook up behind the head unit to use in conjunction with Bluetooth enabled phones which the head unit did not come with. Very simple and easy.

Pros: Color coded and matches up to the head unit. Comes with all required wiring for vehicles model OEM upgrades.

Works fine, but there was some guessing. There was nothing in the instructions about the AXXESS box. I had never seen one before. I had to Google it to even find out what it did, and there were several different options to plug into it.

Pros: Works good

Cons: No detailed instructions

An absolue MUST unless you enjoy figuring our wireing diagrams and cutting and soldering wires. Probably cuts a bout 2 hours off an install. Would not even attempt an install w/o these.

Pros: A must have. Saves time and your temper.

Cons: instrustions could be a little more helpful for the "extra" wires etc that you many not be used to seeing

This made what could be a nightmare, very easy. After getting it wired to the head unit's wiring harness, it was plug and play !!

Pros: Easy to use, no surgery on the car's wiring,

Cons: Instructions could be a little better, especially when used with the steering wheel control adapter, it required calling tech support to be sure

Stereo Won't Turn Off

KB from Tennessee on 8/4/2015

2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This unit was easy to figure out and install, but I am having some issues with it. In my 2010 Wrangler Unlimited, the factory radio turned of either 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off, or when one of the front doors is opened. That's true for this as well, EXCEPT when my Clarion stereo is in Tuner mode. In CD, Aux, BT, or any other mode, it behaves normally, but when in Tuner mode, the radio stays on for as long as 30 minutes with no key in the ignition and the doors open. I have laready replaced the Clarion head utit, so I'm fairly sure it;s not that. Very frustrating.

Pros: Works very well to make installation easy.

Cons: Mentioned above, head unit will not turn off in Tuner mode.

This worked fine for me, a touch complicated, but re-reading the instructions slowly it came together with no problems but one, the antenna adapter was for a foreign car listed as volkswagon, my car is a 2009 avenger. I called Crutchfield they sent a replacement but that was wrong too. Also for a European car.

Pros: Good harness

Cons: Separate box for ignition and the antenna adapter was wrong 2 times.

It is a great product for hooking up my Alpine headunit to my Dodge Ram factory harness. Some of the items that came with the harness, were not very clear in the instructions as to what they were and what they need to be hooked up to. Luckily I figured it out on my own.

KenW from Denver on 7/13/2015

2013 Jeep Compass

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The only issue is that the only instructions are the wiring diagram. Nothing regarding the interface module that comes with it, no mention that one of the connectors is for the steering wheel control. I had issues when I first installed the radio because it wouldn't work. I thought the interface module was related to the navigation function which was not used by me. Then there were two identical connectors that might fit. Called tech support (and they were *very* helpful) to find out which connector to use. Turns out the one is labeled SWC which, in retrospect, means Steering Wheel Control (but there's nothing in the documentation with the kit the ever mentions that capability so I didn't make the connection (so to speak) until the TS guy mentioned it. Plugged in the right connector, radio started working, no issues after that. I appreciate the versatility present in the kit, just wish it was documented better

Pros: Great wiring diagram

Cons: insufficient documentation if you've never installed a radio before.

Not compatible with 2015 Jeep Patriot

Amber from Washington on 7/7/2015

2015 Jeep Patriot

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I only give this 1 star because this product does not work with the 2015 Jeep Patriot - the Axxess box works on pre-2015 models to route power to the receiver in lieu of the CANbus, which retains RAP. After speaking with both Crutchfield and Metra customer support, they have not yet tested this product on 2015 models and could not get the unit working. I ended up finding an alternate way to route power to my receiver, while still keeping RAP.

Pros: Works great with pre-2015!

Cons: Does not work with 2015 models (Jeep Patriot) Instructions are not clear

Pros: Works as expected.

Cons: The instructions are not clear. Had to dig through the Internet and online videos to get info on the functionality of it. The Internet didn't have clear information about my cars connections. Seems that if you have a high end system in your car to begin with there's plenty of info but not much if you have a low end oem system. Seems odd since thats why I wanted to upgrade. Once I figured it out, it all made sense. Please work on the instructions.

Seems to work well in my application. It is nice to retain the radio on after the car is shut off feature. Please note that the instructions are not all that great. At least in the case of my Dodge, even though I have not audio amp or retractable antenna, I still needed to connect the remote power control wire due to an antenna amplifier that was in line to the factory antenna. Many thanks to Crutchfield technical support for pointing this out.

Pros: Works well for connecting aftermarket radio to Dodge.

Cons: The instructions are not very clear at all.

There isn't a lot to say about a wiring harness typically. The harness does work provided you do a little improvising. The instructions say to use the provided "black box (my works)" if you're hooking up a sold-separately module to retain steering wheel controls I believe. What it doesn't mention is you need to plug it in either way or the radio won't function properly.

Pros: Reasonable in cost

Cons: Missing an important bit of instruction

Axxess XSVI-6522-NAV Wiring Interface, works but not the easiest

SeanF from Illinois on 5/17/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It eventually works, which is why I couldn't give it only three stars for the added difficulty of a rather messy universal harness. I suppose you could say on a positive note that this one harness covers multiple possibilities of OEM systems, some with Nav components. The end result is that yes, it does what it's supposed to but it is not an intuitive install. You'll have a difficult time with clean wire bundling and will have a bit of a bird's nest to stuff back behind your head unit. You may have to put in a quick call to Crutchfield technical support who for me did a much, much better job explaining what goes where and what will hang off the harness un-used than the poor documentation that comes in the package.

Pros:

Cons:

Absolutely essential to a successful installation of a radio in a modern Dodge vehicle. I love that it picked up the pieces that removing the factory radio took out like the radio plays for a minute after the vehicle is turned off and the key removed till a door is opened.

I am by all accounts a novice when I comes to installing anything in a car, but using this wiring harness was really simple. Buy a pair of wire strippers, crimp connectors, and some zip ties and you'll be go to go. If you're not wiring a Nav unit then there will be a few wires you won't be using. Don't forget to connect the blue "power amp" wire to the "power antenna" wire from your aftermarket headunit or your radio reception will nonexistent. Plug the wires into the black box after making your connections, put it all back together, and enjoy.

Pros: Simple to install

Cons: Instructions could be clearer for beginners

Great adapter for connecting radio/receiver to vehicle harness system. Worked very well, once I figured out which one of the two 12-pin connectors needed to be connected to its "black box". A bit pricey, but works well - auto functions are all intact.

Pros: great fit, all vehicle functionality intact.

Cons: A bit expensive. Need instructions for after the wire connections are made, and a diagram showing 12-pin connections would be very useful. Improve directions and you'll probably see a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews.

Features

Vehicle Compatibility: The XSVI-6522-NAV radio replacement interface module allows you to replace the factory radio in select 2001-up Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Mitsubishi, and Volkswagen vehicles (non-amplified factory system or when replacing amplified system) with an aftermarket head unit.

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.

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 ]

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 ]

This should connect to the red wire to the aftermarket stereo.
