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.

So easy once you figure out the initial step June-24-15
Reviewer: Anonymous from New Hampshire  
Based on a video I watched from Crutchfield, I thought this unit was going to AutoDetect as soon as I flipped the key. unfortunately it did not. with very vague instructions, I called Crutchfield support and they were great.  I had press the reset button and as soon as I did, it programmed itself in less than 15 seconds. Would have been a lot faster if the instructions had more details.

2006 Nissan Pathfinder with Jensen VX7020 Nav June-22-15
Reviewer: c from Hawaii  
Bought the Path for my son to drive while in college.  Installed a double din with nav to help him get around.  Never gave much thought about the steering controls when I installed the deck but since I was on Crutchfield ordering stuff for my other truck anyway, I figured I'd check it out.  Found this one and with hundreds of stellar reviews how can I go wrong right?  Well, since I'm a caveman I read directions but don't really read directions, you know?  Had some wiring issues  so I called Crutchfield for some help.  Don't have the guys name but I think he was a Crutchfield imposter.  I could tell he was tired of listening to dumb questions asked by dumb people like me and that being on the phone was the last thing in the world he wanted to be doing.  Anyway, I wasn't calling to make friends, just needed some info which I got so it is what it is.  Now I got all the wiring done except the 3.5 plug in.  looked in the back of my deck and nothing.  checked the instructions (which you have to get online, they aren't in the kit) and of all the brands listed, Jensen is not one (no Audiovox either).  Called Crutchfield but I was out of luck, closed for the day.  So, having only a few wires not used in the harness I found the 2 that it should be.  Took a couple tries but I finally got it wired and synced.  BTW, the reset button is the other little hole next to the LED.  You need to shove a pin in there to get to it.  There's nowhere in the kit or instructions that tell you where it is.

Hooked this up to my Honda CR-V 2005 along with my Pioneer AVH-X4600BT. Works like a charm, no delay and auto detect setup took less than 10 seconds.
