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

After wasting money and time on the streets looking for this Harness, it only took me 10 minutes with a conversation with an expert on Crutchfield, I was able to get exactly what I need. The instructions were clear and the installation was fast. I was worried about not being able to connect the factory Bose Amplifier, but this harness worked exactly has advertised. No engine noise, very clean sound.

Worked like a champ on my 2003 Yukon

Fred from Texas on 11/25/2016

2003 GMC Yukon

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

I got this to install a Pioneer deck in my 2003 GMC Yukon with Bose stereo, but no steering wheel controls or On-Star. I had to call in regarding the hook up of one wire and the guy who answered the phone was great. Watched a video to help figure out how to run the mic cable invisibly and and figure out placement of the chime unit. Took me about 3 hours with crimping the wires together and modified inside dash slightly to fit the unit, but wiring worked like a champ. Don't forget to plug in you mic before you install and also remove any CD's from your previous unit before uninstalling! Wiring kit worked like a champ. Very happy!

Pros: Reasonably clear instructions. Easy to use. Plugged right into my stock wiring harness.

Cons: None

A must have for today's increasingly complicated car stereo systems

tony from Perkasie, PA on 5/16/2016

2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

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

Doesn't get any easier. This interface made the radio installation a breeze. No quesswork, no hunting down wires, this was completely plug and play which is awesome considering the complexity of today's car stereos being tied into other vehicle functions. I was so impressed with the ease of installation that I purchased a second radio from crutchfield with it's accompanying installation gear for a second car of mine that also has a complicated stereo system and it went just as smooth. I highly recommend these interfaces.

Pros: Super simple to wire up. All the directions are easy to follow. Truly plug and play. No guesswork, and no having to hunt down wires.

Cons: None. If you are already going to use a wiring adapter to hook your radio up, it behooves you to get the complete interfaces that accompany your vehicle.

Not only did this work exactly the way it was intended but it's cheaper then anywhere else you can find it! I have a 03 Silverado with A Bose system and everything is in working order. I have my truck alarms and a very nice sound system.

Pros: When installing a double din you need all the room you can get and with this nice adapter. It allows you to maneuver the wires easier for installation.

Cons: None

I was really hesitant on installing my own stereo. I just took my son to a local Stereo shop and for him setup with a new system, after feeling like we got fleeced there I turned to Crutchfield for my truck. Once I had it installed, thought I didn't everything right, but had some issues with the sound. Within a few minutes the gentleman at Crutchfield had the detail of my truck & stereo and solved the problem. Truly professional staff that know the products they sell. A+++ in my book, and fully recommend to anyone looking for any type of stereo components.

Pros: Staff is knowledgeable & professional Fast shipping Reasonable and competitive prices

Cons: None

These fits my 2004 Silverado with Bose system. I've bought 3 different wiring harness for my truck and every time I got the wrong one so finally I checked Crutchfield and they were very helpful to insure me that I was buying the right one. This works great and easy to install.

Pros: Fast shipping,easy to install,fits perfectly in my truck and great customer service help if you need it

Cons: There no cons with the product but it would be nice if there was a way that Crutchfield could deliver personally and install it on site would be awesome lol

What nobody tells you even if you have a non-Bose car you still have a amp and if you are adding a amp you need to run wire to every speaker. That is a chore so if you are adding a amp to your car be prepared to run your own wires to every speaker

Pros: Good quality

Cons: Crutchfield does not explain this in the least so beware

This helps simplify the installation immensely. My wife's Avalanche has the Bose system and without this kit I would never have gotten the new radio installed right. Big thanks for this. Took about 20 minutes to connect everything and about the same to install the radio.

The unit works well but the instructions a missing a key step to make it work. The power antenna wire has to be hooked up even if you don't have a power antenna to make the Bose system in the truck work. This is missing in the instructions and I ended up installing 3 times before Cruchfield support said of yeah you need to hook that blue wire up that was never used before or in the instructions.

Pros: Works once you figure it out.

Cons: Bad instructions.

This thing does it's job, which is a simple job. Replaced an aftermarket Pioneer head in my 04 Silverado which was making no sound. It turns out the head was fine, but the existing box that was doing the job of this product, the Axxess GMOS-01, was intermittant....so, stay away from that product. The door chime works, and it seems to have the proper gain staging to the Bose amp.

Pros: Works

This part is exactly what I needed to finish installing the new head unit in my 2004 Chevy Tahoe. I wish I would have know about it in the beginning because I had purchased other wiring harnesses and wasted my money. It is very easy to wire this harness and it works flawless. I will continue to purchase thru Crutchfield for anything that I need for electronics in my vehicle.

Pros: Exact color code for proper wiring.

Makes installation a breeze. All you have to do is splice the wires on this unit to matching wires on the receiver (white to white, blue to blue, etc.) and plug it into the vehicle socket. I used this for a Sony WX-GT90BT in a 2005 Tahoe.

Pros: Does what it's supposed to.

This harness works as intended. I get great sound and even though i lost my steering wheel controls, the remote more than makes up for it.

Pros: Integrates factory amplifier, warning chimes, and reserved accessory power.

Cons: No onstar capability( if you use it), and loss of steering wheel controls (remote in most aftermarket systems makes up for this).

Features

Radio Replacement Interface: The CRUX SOCGM-17B radio replacement interface retains select factory features in General Motors Class II vehicles when replacing your factory radio with an aftermarket head unit. The CRUX SOCGM-17B retains the following factory feature set.

  • 12 Volt Accessory output (3A max)
  • RAP (Retained Accessory Power) - keeps the radio powered after the key is off, until the driver door is opened or the OEM timer ends; whichever happens first
  • Illumination Output (250mA max)
  • Retains safety & warning chimes (non-adjustable)
Note: This interface does not support steering wheel control or OnStar.

Q
Does this work with steering wheel controls as well as the Bose system?
[ TSPEED2000  Dec 25, 2015 ]

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.

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.
