Keep your steering wheel audio controls

Are you looking to install an aftermarket stereo in your car, but worried about losing your handy steering wheel audio controls? This ASWC-1 interface from Axxess allows you to connect the steering wheel controls in a wide variety of vehicles 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, this interface automatically detects which vehicle it's connected to — if not, you can manually program the interface 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 lets 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.

This little box, that only took 5 connections to install, automatically allowed our Element steering wheel controls to work with our brand new JVC stereo. Great, car specific instructions on their website, too.

worked great! April-15-14

This item saved my radios functionality in my 2003 Pontiac Grand Am GT! Installation was simple. Plug it in the back if the radio and let the device find your vehicle. Once that's done.... Use it!!! It's that simple! Great product and so worth the money!!!

Finally!!! April-10-14

I finally found a SWC compatible with my Kia Optima and Parrot Asteroid Smart. I've been waiting for about a year. I originally bought the Parrot Unika but found out it was not compatible with my car. The Axxess ASWC-1 turned out to be fully compatible with my vehicle and now all my steering wheel buttons are working. Thank you to Crutchfield's tech support who sent me detailed instructions on how to open up my dash and program my unit. Note: For anyone who wants to use this SWC for their Parrot Asteroid Smart, make sure to go to the Axxess website and download the latest firmware update to this unit.
