    Most major brand double dins will have remote control input. You will need a PAC SWI module. If you bought a cheapy like a valor. youre probably SOL>

    Yes, but not on all models and/or manufactures of head units.

    In general, if the head unit has a jack/plug on the back for a remote, the PAC modual will probably work, you just need to buy the right one.

    Since that headunit has an infrared remote; you might be able to use the PAC SWI-X. It basically splices into the steering wheel controls, then a little IR transmitter, which you have to mount somewhere so it can "see" the headunit, will replicate the remote control signals to do the desired commands.
