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.


Axxess ASWC-1 Steering Wheel Control Adapter Reviews

Good adapter July-19-16
Reviewer: ME from Helena, MT  
Work, but I havn't gotten it to work well yet. The up volume and up track change are glitchy and done work consistently. Additionally I lost a couple of functions after taking out the stock receiver. I am thinking some of my problems are due to programming issues (when you install it you have to program it to recognize your receiver). Overall it is better than not having use of the steering wheel controls, but I feel it could be better

Awesone adapter. July-13-16
Reviewer: Erik from Pensacola, FL  
Easy to install and allows all of the steering controls to work. Ive installed older ones and you had to program them, this one does it automatically. Awesome.

Works 100% July-13-16
Reviewer: Robert from KC  
Works just as they said it would, I did have a problem figuring out which wires to hook up to, but Crutchfield was there to help like always!

Steadily increasing volume issue. Did not complet July-12-16
Reviewer: Tyrone from Allentown, PA  
Based on previous success with another vehicle (VW Passat), I took the advice of Crutchfield and bought the steering wheel control module.  After following all the diagrams from the head unit manufacture, Crutchfield and Axxess, I was able to connect the system.  Thank goodness I did not crimp/shrink-wrap the connections, because as soon as I turned on the unit, the volume increased to the maximum.  Any attempt to lower manually (on wheel or head unit) went back up to max as soon as the down button(s) were released.  Checked out several boards (auto, axxess, and JVC/Kenwood), and it looks like there may be a wiring diagram problem.  Decided the time to investigate was not worth it.  Disconnected the adapter and successfully installed the head unit without steering wheel controls.

Wiring instructions not good enough July-10-16
Reviewer: Aaron from Kaneohe, HI  
I have used this item in the past with no problems. This time, I have not been able to install on my truck. The wiring instruction do not match the wire colors that I have available. I have been searching the Internet to no avail to find the correct diagram.
