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.

Works as advertised July-26-15
Reviewer: Wrekreation from Virginia  
I bought this months after buying the radio.  I realized I wanted my steering wheel controls back.   The instructions were so so and I began to worry.   A single phone call to Crutchfield and I knew exactly what to do.   It works well, all the funtionality is there.

Good item to retain factory steering controls July-16-15
Reviewer: Kev4u from New York  
Works well once installed. I found instructions a bit confusing, but Crutchfield Tech help made it work and easy to install.

Very simple for Mazda3 July-14-15
Reviewer: Clint from Massachusetts  
Once Devin in Tech Support diplomatically advised me to RTFM, I got it properly wired. The controller auto detected my '06 Mazda3 and JVC receiver. All the SW controls - MODE, CH, VOL, and MUTE work as expected. For internet radio, MUTE pauses the stream. It's nice to be able to listen to Pandora and TuneIn via Bluetooth on Android and skip tracks from SWC.

easy install July-12-15
Reviewer: Cal from Minnesota  
This SWC system is great!  It is the third brand I have installed and by far the easiest.  The self learning feature is great and saves allot of time and effort to get it up and running.
