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.

Simple install and does what it's supposed to do November-24-14
Reviewer: JimH from Atlanta, GA  
The installation was very simple.  It autodetected my vehicle and head unit based on simply powering it up while holding up on the volume control.  Controls are very responsive and feel on par with the original factory configuration.


 
Only works with the volume November-22-14
Reviewer: marchiando from Illinois  
This unit only detects the volume controls on my 370Z without the Bose system.  I installed with the Pioneer AppRadio4 and it's not allowing me to do anything else.  According to the flashing LEDs it thinks it's connected to a Jensen head unit.  I have no way to figure out how to connect this to make it work.  Very frustrating unit.  Not sure how to update the firmware in this thing, since it only works with a PC - I only have Mac computers at home and mostly at work, so that's not an option.  Would like to exchange for something else, but I really don't want to take the dash apart - I've had it apart, like, 5 times now to get this thing troubleshot, but no luck.


 
Easy November-16-14
Reviewer: sweet from Valparaiso, IN  
Easy to install and wire. Currently on my radio the steering controls move the channel up or down one instead of moving thought the presets. Havent looked into if this is able to change.
