You'll need to set the time and date display before removing the factory radio; you can't make adjustments once that radio has been removed.

Features

Radio Replacement Interface: The CRUX SWRFD-60E is a radio replacement for select 2011-up Ford vehicles with a factory 4" screen. It facilitates the integration of an aftermarket radio to enable retention of factory features when replacing a factory installed radio in select Ford vehicles. This interface is pre-programmed for retention of Steering Wheel Controls; including Phone Answer/End functions. It also retains the vehicle's factory 4" screen, Aux input, and Voice command features.

Vehicle Compatibility: The CRUX SWRFD-60E is compatible with the following 2011-up Ford vehicles with a factory 4" screen. The CRUX radio replacement interface works on vehicles with or without SYNC. However, the SWRFD-60E does not retain the factory SYNC system.

Make Model Year
Ford Edge 2011-2014
Escape 2013-up
Explorer 2011-2015
F-150 2013-2014
Fiesta 2014-up
Focus 2012-2014
Transit 2015-up
Transit Connect 2014-2018

Factory 4" Screen Retention: The CRUX SWRFD-60E radio replacement interface will retain your Ford vehicle's factory 4" LCD screen. You will need to set the Date & Time of the display prior to removal of the factory radio. Once the factory radio is removed, you can no longer make adjustments to Date & Time.

Retains Factory Aux Input: In vehicles without SYNC, the SWRFD-60E can retain the factory Aux input. Your aftermarket head unit must be equipped with a rear-panel Aux input. If your aftermarket receiver doesn't have a stereo RCA rear-panel Aux input, but instead a 3.5mm rear-panel Aux input, you'll need a female stereo to RCA adapter (sold separately).

Retained Voice Commands & Phone Functions: On vehicles equipped with SYNC, the CRUX SWRFD-60E will retain the factory voice command functions that can be activated from the factory steering wheel controls. The SWRFD-60E also retains the Phone Answer/End functions of the steering wheel controls on all compatible vehicles.

Pre-Programmed Steering Wheel Controls: The SWRFD-60E includes a pre-programmed steering wheel control (SWC) module and harness that allows you to retain your vehicle's factory steering wheel controls. The harness consists of a right-angle 3.5mm connector and a blue/yellow wire (only one connection type will be used based on your brand of aftermarket radio). There is also SWC adapter for aftermarket radios with a 3-wire steering wheel control input. The SWRFD-60E will work with any of the listed aftermarket radio brands that feature a steering wheel control input using the appropriate connector and dip-switch settings (see owner's manual for appropriate settings).

  • 3.5mm Connector: Alpine, Clarion, Pioneer, Sony, Jensen, Older JVC
  • Blue/Yellow Wire: Kenwood, Newer JVC
  • 3-Wire Adapter: Other aftermarket radios (like Boss) with SWC Key 1, SWC Key 2, and SWC Ground wires

Navigation Outputs: The CRUX SWRFD-60E radio replacement interface module provides a VSS (vehicle speed sense) and a Reverse Gear output to make installing an aftermarket navigation radio simpler and less time consuming.

Q
Hi, will the reverse beep retain with this kit?

A
You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.
