AFDI-5V is an accessory for the following products: XSVI-5520-NAV Non-amplified, non - onstar interface harness that retains accessory power and provides navigation output wires.
OEM Ford radios send only 5 V to the stereo amplifier to turn them on, a signal separate from the amp's 12 V supply current. Problem is, the aftermarket radio has 12 V on that line, far more than is necessary. It won't hurt anything, but it often causes an audible "pop" when the radio is turned on. This simple harness drops the 12 V from the radio to 5 V, quieting the "pop". Just connect one wire to the 12 V radio sense line, one to ground, and the last to the amp's sense line.
