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.

A-dapter kit January-31-15
Reviewer: Patrick S. from California  
Installation was straight forward and super simple, worked great straight away, couldn't be happier!

Reviewer: Anonymous person from Illinois  
Works as advertised. Wasn't able to use stock controls until this was installed.

It works great. Docs are iffy. January-13-15
Reviewer: GeekPriest from Central PA  
In short, the thing retains steering wheel controls on my 2003 Buick LeSabre with a Kenwood mechless receiver.  

I wish they'd include some foam mounting tape and/or velcro to assist in mounting the unit, along with some wire ties and insulators to secure unneeded wires. I provided my own. Worst thing is the documentation, which requires careful reading to decipher. Just read/re-read as necessary, and all will go well.
