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. Warranty: 1 year.

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 like factory May-01-16
Reviewer: Tony from Huntingdon, TN  
When I first installed the Axxess steering wheel control adapter with my new Pioneer stereo it didn't work and I wasn't a happy camper.  I didn't like the idea of having steering wheel controls that didn't function.  Then I pushed the reset button on the adapter and it detected my vehicle and stereo and started working fine.  The steering wheel controls now function just like they did with the factory radio.

Nice add-on for aftermarket head unit April-29-16
Reviewer: Jmofunk from Norman, OK  
I purchased this as an add-on to the aftermarket head unit I got in the same sale.  Installation was easy once I watched a couple YouTube videos (one from Crutchfield, and another from a user).  For the splicing, I recommend getting tap splices, which make installation easy for those of us without much experience in wiring.  The controls work just like they did with the factory unit!

EXCELLENT April-26-16
Reviewer: Brian from Ogden, UT  
Programmed immediately.  Hooked it up to a new Kenwood.  I had to connect the blue/yellow remote wire to the brown wire and then insert to the plug into the female end with the brown wire.  Nice to have my steering wheel controls back!

Extremely simple. Basically installed itself. April-25-16
Reviewer: TB from Bloomington, IN  
Amazingly quick and simple to install. All I had to do was connect the blue/grey wire and the ground wire. Once I plugged it into my stereo, it automatically set itself up in about 10 seconds and was ready to go. I looked at the installation diagram on their website and found which wire/pin needed to be spliced on the factory harness. Since the Metra harness I had didn't already have a steering wheel controls pin, I removed a pin/wire from a second metra harness, lined up the correct pin with the factory harness based on the instructions, and added a pin to my Metra harness. Then I was able to solder the Metra harness wire to the ASWC-1 wire without having to cut any factory wiring. Works just like I wanted with no configuration required.
