Default SIRSWB Install on Freightliner Sprinter Cargo Van

While installing the SIRSWB into a Frieghtliner Sprinter, we found a different type of antenna jack on the radio, wondering if anyone knows if an adapter is available for this, and where it could be purchased?

That's a European antenna socket (known as an ISO antenna socket).

Get an antenna adaptor for a VW or a Ford Focus, that should work just fine. These can be gotten at:

1)Crutchfield
2)Best Buy
3)Circuit City

EDIT: I've seen them at Wal-Mart as well.


Out of curiosity, does the stereo in that vehicle give any clue as to who made it?

I'm thinking Becker since it's a German-built vehicle, but I'd love to know for sure..

By the way, the standard antenna socket is known as a Motorola socket or a JASO socket.

ISO socket and JASO socket are terms not often used in this country because so few vehicles on the road here in the USA use the ISO socket.

does this look like the right connector, at least for 1 end, I will end up needing a connector on each end

Picture doesn't show

But you can use Crutchfield's Volkswagen Antenna Adapter
Motorola male to OEM antenna female, part # 097DiN2 which is $3 and
also Volkswagen Antenna Adapter
OEM radio male to Motorola antenna female part # 097DiN3 which is $5

You can search for these part numbers on their site -- these showed up when I entered a 2000 Ford Focus Sedan. They're what you need.

They also sell a Euro antenna adapter--I've no idea what that's for but it's not what you want.

Also if you have a Walmart nearby they have a universal adapter that has a bunch of different connectors on it, and its only $8 for both ends!
