Features

Vehicle Compatibility: The Axxess XSVI-5524-NAV replacement radio interface allows you to install an aftermarket radio in select 2011-up Ford vehicles. The XSVI-5524-NAV interface is designed to be used in vehicles without a factory amplified sound system or when replacing the entire factory amplifier system. The XSVI-5524-NAV does not retain the factory THX/Sony amplified sound system or Ford Sync.

Make Model Year
Ford Fiesta 2011-up
Focus (w/o MyTouch) 2012-up
Fusion (w/ 4.2" screen) 2011-up
F-150 (w/ 4.2" screen) 2011-up
Explorer (w/ 4.2" screen) 2011-up

12V/10A Accessory Output:  In these vehicles, 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-5524-NAV is designed to provide a 12-volt/10-amp switched accessory output (red wire), along with an illumination wire (orange/white wire).

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-5524-NAV interface.

Navigation Ready: The XSVI-5524-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.

Optional Steering Wheel Control Interface: The included wiring harness 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).

Color Codes: Wiring up the XSVI-5524-NAV is like wiring up any other wire harness that would attach to an aftermarket radio's harness. The Metra/EIA wire codes can be found in the Installation Instructions that will aid you in the wiring of your aftermarket radio. The XSVI-5524-NAV interface contains the following wire leads.

For additional details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle.

Q
I keep seeing your only response as to call the advisor team with no answers. These questions are very straightforward so can you please just save a lot of people's time and answer: will one lose all functionality of the Microsoft Sync features, car features or some features (if so which ones) as well as use of the upper screen display? I think most are hung up on that to buy ANYTHING after market. Maybe in the description of these items since the site is capable of only showing us which parts fit our cars, it would be helpful to include this information there.

With this harness specifically, Ford SYNC is not retained at all. Depending on the specific year, model and trim package of your Ford vehicle, we may have other options for retaining the SYNC system and other factory options as well. If you do not want to call, you can chat online with one of our advisors to see what's available: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Chat.aspx You can also use the "Outfit My Car" application on our website here: http://www.crutchfield.com/car/carselector.aspx?lp=%2fCar%2foutfitmycar%2fcar.aspx With your vehicle information entered onto the website, you can see all of the models we recommend to fit your application. When you add a selected stereo to your online shopping cart, you will be prompted to select a "Package Code" of installation accessories for your vehicle. Each package code will have a checklist of factory features that will be retained or lost when you select that specific package. I hope that helps!
