This subject is a little complicated, but the basic answer is that, no, you can't connect steering wheel audio controls to an aftermarket radio without an adapter.

Will aftermarket radio work with factory backup camera?

Unfortunately, adding an aftermarket stereo will often mean that the factory backup camera no longer works without an adapter harness. ... Without an adapter, most factory backup camera systems cannot be used with many aftermarket head units.

Do you need a wiring harness for an aftermarket radio?

A DIN cage or mounting bracket may be necessary to secure the stereo to your dash. You should also purchase a wiring harness adapter so that you can plug your new stereo into your car's electrical system.

What is KEY1?

KEY1, KEY2 and GND are the control lines for old style Steering Wheel Controls (SWC). The old style SWC are analogue and appear in very old cars. Cars are no longer made with that system fitted. But, the KEY1 KEY2 analogue has become a standard for manufacturers to use when making connections to an Android Headunit.

Can we install steering mounted controls?

Although you can do the changes, but from outside we don't suggest any modifications. Because tampering the steering wheel of the car would lead to mishaps some times. Also while installing the controls on the steering will hamper the wire connections and that too can also affect other electrical parts of the car.

What is an ISO connector?

An ISO connector is the plug that connects an audio device to a car. It consists of two side-by-side, eight-pin connectors that control the power, remote if applicable, ground and all of the speakers within the automobile. Without this component, the audio device wouldn't work.

Do all aftermarket radios have the same plug?
