Allows you to use the factory dash controls to operate Alpine, Kenwood, JVC, or Clarion head units that are equipped with an input for a "steering wheel adapter". The DCI provides all the functions* of the original Honda controls plus additional functions and features not available with the stock setup or any other "steering wheel adapter". Because after-market head units don't all use the same command sets there are some slight differences in how they operate with the DCI, so you may want to review the DCI instructions in the "Manuals & Help" tab.
Wiring Harness Options: - Choose only one
- Plug-n-Play Adapter Harness* ($25) - Install your new head unit and DCI with no wire splicing! (Alpine, Kenwood, and JVC only, see harness product page for details). For Kenwood and JVC see pics to verify "new" or "old" head unit connector. JVC KD-X560BT is not compatible.
- Alpine 445A Bridge Harness ($35) - Same as above but provides Bridge Mode operation when using an Alpine HU and KTP-445A amplifier. Works in Bridge Mode ONLY and MUST be used with the 445A.
- DCI-S2000 Adapter Harness ($15) - Plugs directly into the S2000 stereo harness and the DCI, you will have to splice the head unit wires to this harness (8 wires, 12 if you have rear speakers)
- No Adapter Harness - You will have to splice all wires between the DCI harness, S2000 stereo harness, and the head unit (14 wires, 18 if you have rear speakers)
- SCV Wiring Kit ($3.50) - Requires running the supplied wire from the DCI to behind the passenger dash. No special tools needed, see feature details below

Features of the Wired DCI
- Small adapter unit - about 1.5" x 2"
- Provides 9 control functions using the 5 stock dash switches. See function charts in the instruction manual.
- No complicated programming required - just set your head unit brand on the dip switches and it's ready to operate.
- Auto-repeat function built-in - press and hold VOLUME UP, and the volume will increase rapidly as the command is repeated. Auto-repeat works on other functions too, meaning features like 'track fast-forward' will work if you press and hold the NEXT TRACK button combo, just like they do with the factory remote control.
- Optional Speed Controlled Volume function (SCV) - (requires SCV Wiring Kit) An exclusive Modifry Products feature enabled by connecting one additional wire to the S2000's speedometer circuit. The DCI will then automatically raise and lower the volume based on vehicle speed. No more fiddling with the volume control when background and wind noise increase as you speed up. Details here
- * Note on the Mute Function - unlike other steering wheel adapters, the DCI works with the S2000 Mute button, activating the head unit's built-in mute function. However, most modern head units will only lower the volume because they don't have the capability to pause playback. Pause will only work if your head unit has a dedicated "Interrupt" or "ATT" wire.
Alpine iLX-W650 customers – Our PnP harness works with some minor mods - use the free-hanging yellow/blue wire for the parking brake connection. Cut the PnP pink wire and connect the head unit side to the reverse lights to trigger the backup camera.
