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.

Easy adapter February-23-15
Reviewer: Anonymous person from Ewing, NJ  
Easy  and clear installation.  I didn't like the fact that I had to cut my factory harness wires.  I don't plan on having to hook up my factory harness ever again but it would've been nice if I could of had the option to do so.  Everything works as it should.

ASWC Works! February-23-15
Reviewer: GrimmK from Maryland  
Works great!  This SWCA allows me to retain factory volume and track adjustment from the steering wheel that would otherwise be lost when adding an aftermarket stereo.  Installed in a 2006 MINI Cooper S using a Pioneer Echelon 599 head unit - ASWC Solid brown wire connects to Pioneer harness steering wheel control wire, cut and splice pink poke-a-dot wire on factory harness to solid pink wire on ASWC adaptor, connect power and ground. The auto detect function worked as described!

4 of 5. Steering controls when tweaked too quickly can disrupt it. Too many volume commands changes channel. Don't overwhelm it - it works ok.

Aftermarket steering wheel control February-22-15
Reviewer: Ronnie from Seffner, FL  
When I open the package, and seen all the wires I was a little hesitant, but this was actually the easiest part of the install. It was a three wire hook up and push a button, and everything works properly!

Works fantastic once you get this running.  Provides full control of my steering wheel functions on my Hyundai Sante Fe.  Crutchfield tech support was absolutely phenomenal in getting this up and running.
