To replace GM Equinox/Torrent Radio and maintain all safety features an interface is required!
The RP3-GM12 Version 1.1.73
Chime and Data-BUS Integration Interface will allow you to replace the factory radio with an aftermarket radio in select 2005-06 Equinox and 2006 Torrent without OnStar® or when OnStar is not serviced or unwanted.
The RP3-GM12 (formerly C2R-GM24B) interface replicates all factory warning chimes, audible turn signal indicators and provides a data bus generated 12V Accessory output that acts just as GM’s R.A.P. (Retained Accessory Power) system did prior to radio removal. R.A.P. keeps the radio powered after the key is off, until the driver door is opened or a 10 minute timer ends, whichever comes first
» Enables aftermarket radio installation without having to retain the factory radio
» Supplies the appropriate warning tone for: door ajar, seat belt, low oil pressure, hi-temp, low fuel, etc.
» Safe & Sound Class II circuitry will not disable vehicle data bus even if interface loses power
» High current 10A accessory output. No more searching for switched +12v in fuse box or kick panel
» New radio will operate with the vehicle RAP (Retained Accessory Power) system--- stays on for approx. 10 minutes or until a door is opened.
