Overview Details Accessories

Keep your steering wheel audio controls

The ASWC-1 adapter from Axxess allows you to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to almost any brand of aftermarket stereo, including Alpine, Clarion, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer, Sony, and more. (Note: your new stereo must have a 3.5mm steering wheel control or wired remote control input.)

Installation is a straightforward process. You usually have to connect a few wires to your factory wiring. In most cases, the adapter automatically recognizes the vehicle it's been connected to. If not, you can manually program the adapter for your vehicle by following a step-by-step process with LED confirmation. Once connected, the adapter's memory retains its programming even if battery power is interrupted. A USB slot allows you keep the ASWC-1 current when updates become available.

Installation Note: This adapter will not retain your vehicle's factory Bluetooth functionality. Please identify your vehicle or call an Advisor at 1-800-297-9469 to see if the ASWC-1 adapter is compatible with your vehicle.

Wiring Advisory: You'll usually have to tap or splice into one to three wires in your vehicle at the radio location to connect this interface. If you're using a Metra Axxess OEM integration adapter to connect your new car stereo to your vehicle, then it most likely will have a prewired connector for this Axxess ASWC-1 adapter. In these cases, no additional wiring in required. Axxess does provide custom wiring instructions for all confirmed compatible vehicles on their website.

At first I was intimidated October-07-15
Reviewer: Bob from Texas  
.. But then I followed the instructions.   The gizmo auto-sensed the car and works perfectly.

No Pain Interface for Steering Wheel Controls of R September-29-15
Reviewer: Marc B from Virginia  
Program, Install, and the interface does the rest when interfacing with major stereo manufacturers (JVC, Kenwood, Bose, etc.)

So glad to still be able to use my steering wheel controls!

Ease to install September-29-15
Reviewer: luis from California  
It was pretty straight forward to install. It works great and would buy it again.

Poor support from Axxess September-29-15
Reviewer: ScottR from Kenosha, WI  
Axxess fails to mention that when used on a 2005 Buick LaCrosse that the temp controls on the steering wheel are lost as in they do not control the temp anymore. I wrote to them but that was their reply. The mute button also fails to work. It would be nice if they told people the limitations of their adapter up front before investing the money and time to install it.
