Is this product compatible with the head unit? " Ensure that the new head unit is capable of being operated with a remote control, and that it responds to the remote control provided with it. " The head unit must accept a remote control with the common carrier frequency range of 38 3 40Khz in order to work with the SWI-X.
Note: Certain head units will not work with the SWI-X. See Appendix B - Known Incompatible Aftermarket Head Units (page 5) . C.
Prepare for the installation. " If possible, install the SWI-X while you are installing the new head unit. Keep in mind you may need to plug in the factory stereo to locate certain wires; therefore do not complete the head unit installation until the SWI-X is working properly.
" Plan a general installation location for both the SWI-X LED and ... more. less.
the control body. Keep in mind that the supplied wire harness is two feet long , and the IR harness is four feet long . " Use a multimeter or approved measuring device for checking vehicle circuits.<br><br> Wiring Connections Step 1. Connect the BLACK wire to ground (-). VeriGcation: Wire or location registers a constant (-) when probed.<br><br> Step 2. Connect the RED wire to switched +12V.

Notes No power / won 9t go into programming mode: " Check Red wire connection and fuse. Make sure INTERFACE is connected to switched 12V+.<br><br> " Make sure vehicle ignition is on. Won 9t program radio commands: " Make sure version number and IR Extended mode setting are programmed before attempting to program radio commands. The right LED of the INTERFACE will Qash the programmed version number when power is applied.<br><br> Steering wheel controls won 9t operate new head unit " Make sure you have programmed the correct version number and IR Extended mode setting. " Make sure you 9ve followed the programming instructions precisely, noting each exception and time sequence. Repeat if neces- sary.<br><br> " Place the INTERFACE emitter within range of the new head unit. To replace a broken IR emitter: " Replace with standard IR emitter (i.e. Radio Shack part number 276-143).<br><br> Long lead of IR emitter goes to INTERFACE 9s emitter Red wire and short lead goes to INTERFACE 9s black wire) The INTERFACE controls the stereo immediately without pressing any buttons on the steering wheel: " During programming, press the buttons on the steering wheel Prmly until the left LED turns off. Releasing the button too earl y will cause the INTERFACE to send out a signal even when no buttons are pressed. During programming, the right LED turns off and goes to the left LED without pressing a button on the wireless remote: " Turn off Quorescent droplights or shop lights during programming.<br><br> " Make sure the INTERFACE 9s IR LED is not in direct sunlight. The INTERFACE controls the radio whenever the steering wheel is turned (mostly late 80 9s early 90 9s Honda/Acura). " Program the INTERFACE for version #11.<br><br> When pressing and holding down the volume button on the steering wheel, the volume or track on the radio only goes up or down by one or is very slow. May also relate to other functions. " Depending on some vehicles, some stereos may not respond very well.<br><br> Try programming the interface for 8Extended IR Mode 9. This may or may not help in response from the stereo. For mostly GM vehicles, when going into radio programming the left LED turns off and goes to the right LED without press- ing the steering wheel buttons.<br><br> " If the SWC wire in the vehicle 9s steering wheel column is cut in half, do not cut the brown loop wire on the interface.
