About the Crux SOCGM-17B Wiring Interface

Add a new radio

Installing a new car stereo can often mean losing your GM vehicle's factory warning chimes and bypassing your Bose system. Crux's SOCGM-17B wiring interface solves this problem, allowing you to install a new receiver while retaining the safety chimes and the standard Bose amplifier. The interface does not support the Y-91 digital Bose systems found in the Escalade and Hummer, and does not retain OnStar or steering wheel audio controls. 

Product highlights:

  • connect a new car stereo in select 2000-up GM Class II vehicles
  • retain safety warning chimes
  • retains factory Bose system
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
  • MFR # SOCGM-17B

Q
Does this work with steering wheel controls as well as the Bose system?
[ TSPEED2000  Dec 25, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
[ Kenny  Dec 26, 2015 ]  Staff
Q
How is this installed? There seems to be a lot of extra wires. How does this harness fit-up to the Pioneer radio connector in the back of the radio? I got instructions for installing a radio into the dash but nothing for this wiring interface.

Q
is this the same thing as a harness?
[ Tyler  Jul 19, 2015 ]
2 answers
A
That's it, there is a wire that calls to be soldered in, I used an inline splitter and it seems to be working so far.
[ STUART  Jul 20, 2015 ]
A
Yes it is a harness. It is a harness designed specifically to work with your car/truck to not only connect your new stereo to your factory wiring but to keep the factory door chimes etc. The black box you see provides the source for the new chime.
