Would Not Power On

Alex from Rochester Hills, MI on 5/21/2019

2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

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

This product would not ever function for me. Crutchfield tech support and PAC both assisted me to a great degree. Neither unit would power on when wired based on the instructions provided by the PAC website for use with their C2R-GM11B, by using a different accessory power point, or by wiring directly off the vehicle battery. I am currently awaiting an alternative product to arrive for me to trial. I would stay far away from these units as I believe that PAC has some manufacturing woes with their suppliers.

Awful product; more frustrating than it's worth.

Crutchfield customer from Denver, CO on 4/23/2019

2000 Chevrolet Camaro

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

The product really doesn't work. Their application doesn't do a very good job being specific enough for the aftermarket stereo. The wiring colors that are said to exist on the app don't line up with the car factory harness or the aftermarket radio harness. Their website doesn't support this model number anymore. The android application doesn't have all the available stereo options (at least for GM) either. Frustrating to use; hard to wire with useless instructions.

Pros: None

Cons: -The app doesn't account for all stereo options for a specific make and model. -The app's wiring diagram doesn't match the aftermarket stereo or car. -Not nearly as intuitive as the description sounds -Only supported on the app, not their website.

Save your money. Dont buy it for a Dodge

ALAN from Commerce City, CO on 1/14/2019

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

Not worth it. Customer support from PAC is less than helpful. Was trying to put this in. 99 Dodge Durango. They could not tell me where the wiring harness was that the instructions referred to. The factory system has 2 wires for the steering wheel controls which this system does not use. I even looked at the Dakota which had completely different instructions but Chrysler used the same radio and controls in the Durango as they use in the Dakota.

Pros:

Cons: Really bad customer support

The first one received seemed to be dead. I notified Crutchfield and they got me set up right away to return that unit and have a replacement sent right away. This was my first return ever and the guys at Crutchfield made it so easy. I have used PAC Steering Wheel Controllers before and know these are great products. I have no doubt this was just a fluke. That's why I am giving 5 stars. Thanks Crutchfield for your help.

Crutchfield customer from Mesa, AZ on 9/9/2018

2004 Acura MDX

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

Online Instructions are virtually useless, indicate connectors that don't exist, mixes up numbering system of ones that do. Suggests making connections in *overhead console* and *under passenger seat* (what???). Waste of time and money... now it's buried back in the dash behind radio -- requiring too much time and effort to retrieve and send in for refund.

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

I really wanted to maintain my steering wheel controls. I ordered this with wiring harness for my stereo and added the pre-wired at factory by Crutchfield. Most connections were poor at best. I ended up re doing half the splices, also the instructions were vague, they did not support my truck or new radio. Overall a very poor experience, except for the tech support people on the phone, Wes was very friendly and helpful. If the instructions were clearer I never would have needed to call them.

Once again a homerun for the Crutchfield team. i downloaded the app to install this unit and was a little confused. i called crutchfield and they had me straightened out within 2 minutes. It was as simple as splicing 1 wire from my factory harness and hook up a few extra wires with my deck and boom done. So glad i paid a couple dollars more for this versus skipping it.

Pros: easy install with the help of Crutchfield

Cons: App makes it confusing just call support team at Crutchfield

Controls sound and channel through the stock system. I had to purchase an extra harness and Insert a wire to make it plug and play (I have a thing against cutting into stock wiring). When you are finished with it there is alot of wireing and will need ample room behind the radio to fit everything neatly.

Pros: Works well to translate information to the stock system.

Cons: A LOT of wireing will be left over and can make it difficult to fit everything in place. A unit designed for individual application would be much better.

Not a heck of a lot to say.... it works exactly as it's supposed to. We bought the controller along with a head unit and paid for the presiding service. Hook up was a breeze and functions perfectly with the new head unit.

Instructions were easy to follow and it wired up to the adapter perfectly. Some of the controls are not mapped yet (2008 Tahoe) and I have not looked into adding them manually. Volume up and down work, source works and next previous works. The play/pause button does not respond neither does the mute button.

Pros: Most buttons work. Easy to wire up.

Cons: Not all buttons are mapped (2008 Tahoe)

Great tool for retaining steering wheel controls

Lelend from Hiram, GA on 1/21/2018

2008 Dodge Grand Caravan

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

Wired it up and it worked perfectly to retain the steering wheel controls for my wife's van. The phone app was slick. once wired up it took less than 10 min to download the app and set the DIP pin configuration. There is ONE ADDITIONAL step we had to do. My wife's van did not come with hands free originally, so there was no steering wheel microphone. The steering wheel controls uses a 3.5mm audio jack as the input for the steering wheel controls. In order to use the hands free function of the new stereo we bought, we had to get a 3.5mm dual stereo headphone jack. It was the same kind used to allow two sets of ear buds out of one audio jack. Plugged in the steering wheel controls into one side and the hands free mic into the other. Good to go.

Pros: works like a charm

Cons: some wires not needed due to not all options used.

Chris from Corvallis, OR on 1/4/2018

Wonderful idea and it usually works to retain my steering wheel controls. Every once in a while though if I hit "volume down" on my steering wheel controls the volume on my deck doesn't go down one notch, but it'll go all the way down to 0. Then if I try to increase the volume it automatically goes up to 15. I'm not sure if that's an issue with these controls or my deck, but it's quite frustrating. Also a little big to fit behind an aftermarket deck in a BMW E46.

Pros: Retails controls

Cons: Bugs out 25% of the time

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Easy to add to the RP3-GM13 wiring interface. We followed the instructions on the pac-audio site and used the apps install process. The Sony head unit was powered but the steering wheel controls were not being recognized by the SWI-CP2. We then attempted the manual process and set the dip switches per the website instructions. This failed as well. It was Saturday and we called pac-audio technical support. Mike was helpful and answered our call even though they only supported dealers on Saturday. The interface appeared to register the steering wheel controls except for volume down and scan. It took another call to pac-audio, but this next technician refused to help as we were not dealers. I then call Shane from Crutchfield and he sorted it out with pac-audio. The bad news was I had to rewire the RP3-GM13 and SWI-CP2 interface wiring (power, ground, data) and set the dip switches once again. The good news was the unit now works as expected although I wasted about an hour of my install time on poorly written instructions.

Pros: Initial instructions for configuring vehicle seem intuitive Crutchfield support (Shane)

Cons: Initial instructions did not work for our vehicle PAC Audio support PAC app process

While this did end up working for the most part, getting it to work was a bit of a pain. The dipswitch setting wouldn't work for my 1999 Lesabre. I had to work with tech support and use the manual programming. I did lose my temp controls on the wheel but thats ok as i programmed them to answer and do voice dial instead.

Pros: Retained most of my steering wheel functions

It works........but man it was a process. Do not....I repeat.....DO NOT waste your time downloading the PAC app to get your vehicle specific dip switch information. The hole process made me feel like a dip-switch.....pun intended. Just call the Crutchfield tech-line and have them tell you how to hook it up. The app gave me the wrong dip witches and the wrong wiring. After fiddling around re-reading the instructions and re-entering my information into the app for what felt like an eternity I called the Crutchfield tech-line. Within 2 minutes I had the correct information. Thanks Crutchfield

No luck getting it to work and It appears it may be half fried for it only responds now when first plugged in. Going to try a new interface because that part is half fried for some reason so maybe thats why this one wont respond anymore. Never got it to start working though when it did respond.

Just to be clear, your OEM steering wheel controls will always work better than anything aftermarket, but once you figure out the right dipswitch setup, it's a pretty seamless plug and play install. It works, can't complain.

Pros: easy install

Cons: takes navigating the website and its terminology to ensure you have the correct switch setup.

My poor review is not for the PACswi cp2. I have been through 3 FULL DAYS of messing around with this trying to get it to work. It will work the stereo controls, but I lost every other button on the wheel. No HVAC or any other functions. I had to cut my wiring harness in the car, splice the wire into it, install/ reinstall three times, call tech support probably 10 times, only to find Crutchfield sold me the wrong part. The PAC audio support says this isn't supposed to work any other thing but the stereo. I asked Crutchfield if they had something that worked, they told me no. This is the only reason I bought from Crutchfield, to keep the steering wheel controls. One of the days I waited half a day for a return call that never came. I called and asked why. Andy told me he personally will have someone call me. After a couple hours a sitting, no call. The day before, Support almost had me cut and splice the wrong wire. This unit will keep your stereo controls, but you will lose everything else. PAC-audio said in order to keep the other controls, you need the CP5. No way to even explain what I've been through the past 3 days. Crutchfield has gotten me sick. I need to go lay down.

Pros: Works the stereo good

Cons: Keeps the stereo controls, but you lose everything else.

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

This steering wheel control adapter was quite a bear to get setup. Initially, I tried manually programming the module via the dip switches and everything that the manual and the PC app suggest to be the easiest route. However, after wiring in and getting everything all powered up, i figured I'd try and change the functions of some of the buttons in my steering wheel and from then on, it was a mess. I couldn't change then back and the module would not go back to the factory settings no matter how many times I did what the manual stated to do. I ended up turning all the dip switches off and programming it by plugging it into my laptop using the app. Since then, I've had no issues, but I feel as if the manual fellas you how to manually program, it should actually work... very displeased.

Pros: Step-by-step wiring instructions on PC app Dip switches easy to setup PC programming very simple

Cons: Manual programming is terrible if you wish to try and change button functions and then try to change them back Factory reset does not work the way the manual states

Crutchfield response on 5/22/2017
Sorry for the frustration, Patrick. But because of your review, our Vehicle Integration Buyer, Darren, contacted PAC directly about your review. They then updated the manual and corrected the reset procedure. We then updated this information on our web site. So, we thank you for your help in getting this right. To reset the SWI-CP2 do the following: Press and hold the programming button on the side of the SWI-CP2 interface until the LED illuminates green. After this release the button and wait 7 seconds and the LED will flash 3 times indicating the SWI-CP2 is reset. This will reset any button re-assignments and set the button functions back to the default settings for the configured car/radio combination.

Product Research

Features

Steering Wheel Control Interface: PAC's ControlPRO SWI-CP2 retains the built-in steering wheel controls in select vehicles when replacing the factory radio with an aftermarket radio. It also allows the retention of rear seat controls (RSC) and retained accessory power (RAP) in select vehicles. The SWI-CP2 is compatible with many of today's most popular vehicles, even with more complex electronic systems including CAN bus, GMLAN, and Class II systems. The simple to use interface module can be configured in multiple ways - via dip switches, direct from a USB connected PC, or a button learning procedure. Wiring and vehicle configuration dip switch settings are provided through the ControlPRO APP - available for PC, and Android and iOS devices.

Vehicle Compatibility: The PAC SWI-CP2 steering wheel control interface is compatible in vehicles equipped with CAN Bus, GMLAN, Class II, LIN Bus, I-Bus, and Analog or Serial Data SWC. Compatible vehicle makes include Acura, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Harley Davidson, Honda, Hummer, Hyundai, Infiniti, Isuzu, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercedes, Mercury, Mini, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Porsche, Ram, Saab, Saturn, Scion, Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Volvo.

Note: Click here for complete list of compatible vehicles.

Programming & Configuration: The PAC SWI-CP2 steering wheel control interface offers 3 programming & configuration methods.

  • Manual Configuration Mode: With this method, the SWI-CP2 uses a pre-determined dipswitch configuration to assign the vehicle and SWC button functionality. The dipswitches on the side of the interface must be manually set to the proper configuration by the user. These vehicle specific dipswitch settings can be found by downloading PAC's ControlPRO application onto your Windows PC (7-up), Android smartphone/tablet (OS 4.0.3+), or Apple iPod touch/iPhone/iPad (iOS 7.0+).
  • App Mode: With this method, the SWI-CP2 can be connected to a Windows PC in which PAC's ControlPRO application assigns the vehicle and SWC button functionality. The dipswitches on the side of the interface must all be set to down/on which is the default position. When using this method, it is not required to manually program the SWC buttons when programming via App mode.
  • Manual Programming Mode: With this method the SWC values must be manually programmed into the SWI-CP2 by using the programming button. The vehicle dipswitches on the side of the interface must all be set to the up (off) position. The radio dipswitches must be set to the proper radio configuration (see Instructions). This mode is only compatible in vehicles with both analog SWC and a discrete 12v Accessory wire; vehicles with CAN-Bus buttons cannot be manually programmed.

Two-Function Assignment: The PAC ControlPRO SWI-CP2 allows you to program two radio functions to each SWC button on  your steering wheel by using short press/long press dual command functionality.

Retained Accessory Power (RAP): In vehicles equipped with retained accessory power (RAP), the accessory output and the red LED will remain active & keep the radio on for 10 minutes unless the driver side door is opened. In vehicles that do not support RAP, the LED and accessory output will shut off when the key is switched or removed from the ignition.

Wire Code Chart: Crutchfield recommends that all wiring connections be soldered to ensure a sturdy and reliable connection.

Q
Will this work to connect a wired marine remote to a automotive head unit?
[ jaycee  Aug 16, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
It will not. Sadly, I've never found an interface for that and have had to recommend customers replace the remotes with the the new radio they get for their boat. We have advisors that can make sure you get a new radio that works with wired remotes so this can be done. You can call 1-800-324-9695 to get this personal recommendation.

Q
Is it compatible with OEM premium audio amplifier on 2008 Ram?
[ Chris  Sep 04, 2017 ]

A
The PAC SWI-CP2 is compatible with the factory steering wheel radio controls in your truck. As Steven mentioned; the adapter does not interface with the stock amplifier; just the factory steering wheel controls and the compatible aftermarket stereo. For additional assistance and personalized recommendations, feel free to contact us directly: https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx
[ Ryan  Sep 06, 2017 ]  Staff
A
It shouldn't interfere with the stock amp. All this unit does is interface your stock steering wheel audio controls so they work with your aftermarket stereo head unit. If you are installing a new head unit, what's when you'll want to make sure you order the wiring harness adapter that will retain use of the stock amp.

Thanks for your question. Crutchfield does not carry that brand of receiver. 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 more 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.
