About the Axxess ASWC-1 Steering Wheel Control Adapter

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.)

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 1-888-955-6000 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 worked great on what I was doing. I replaced my 2005 mustang non- radio control steering wheel with 2010 GT500 steering wheel with radio control. It working great with my ILX-007 radio. Thanks for recommending me to this part. Only issue is the phone button . Believe this is due to the apple car play radio.

Pros: Easy setup

Cons: To many wires on module. I only need to use 3.

Works. May not be an easy install.

Crutchfield customer from Forest Hill, MD on 7/2/2019

2010 Subaru Outback

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This device is REALLY fussy about grounding when detecting resistance based steering wheel controls. After trying vampire taps, and various grounding methods, then getting another connector to add the pins I needed to the Metra Subaru 20 pin interface, and soldering the pin leads to the wires for the Axxess device, and then trying a couple more variations on how to ground the power ground and signal ground ... it now works flawlessly. Detected my car on the first try, of the 7th installation. Crutchfield connector power negative already wired in, and the magic sauce for me was to ground the signal ground wire to the car frame and use a 3M 905 quick splice to tie those two together. The blinky lights really do tell you a lot if you pay attention.

Pros: Blinky lights are helpful. There are instructions for everything about this device. Tucked away behind my stereo I feel pretty confident that it will work reliably for a long time now. Once it figures out your car, it remembers.

Cons: Programming interface is tedious. Auto detection does not always detect, and that can be very depressing.

Somewhat annoying installation, and slow learning process. Unit had to learn steering wheel controls everytime I start the car. This would take anywhere from 15-20 minutes. Very frustrating

Pros: Able to use factory steering wheel controls

Cons: Not plug and play installation, forgets steering wheel controls everytime vehicle is turned off,has to be programmed manually

Am impressed that it can automatically learn which car and head unit it's wired into to self configure. Its button press sensitivity is low. Short Next Track button presses are interpreted as Volume Down. Longer button presses will sometimes advance the track, or sometimes advance you two or three tracks. And there's no way to manually program the device.

When I finally finished installing, it worked perfectly. The problem is that I didn't thoroughly read the instructions, and made mistakes. Enough mistakes to call it a comedy of errors. Actually embarrassing. I had to call the customer support line, they were great (and patient). I highly recommend paying the Crutchfield fee to setup the harness.

2015 Honda Civic LX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This may work well for a vehicle that has been tested for installation. I purchased this with a ready made harness so that I would be able to quickly connect everything without having to alter the factory harness. The unit will connect to the head unit however the wiring is setup on the ready harness differently. The manufacture does not have instructions for the car side to be hooked up and has not tested this kit on the 2015 Civic LX model. Even all of there instructions for this kit show a Gen 8 Honda connection under the dash. Still no response back from the manufacture directly. 9 days and counting!

Pros: Unit will connect to stereo and if you have to reprogram the small unit itself it is fairly simple to do with a PC

Cons: Not tested for my vehicle even when the Crutchfield website listed it for my model and the ready made harness did not come with anything to hook into or directions for the steering controls on vehicle side.

Works as intended, on my Ford Freestyle there was no need to program and the buttons work as fast as they did with the OEM radio. Only complaint was the vehicle specific instructions were just plain old hard to follow being in 3 columns. A traditional multi page instructions manual would be better.

Pros: Works exactly as you would expect on my Ford Freestyle.

Cons: Instructions could be more intuitive.

Needed an 1K ohm resistor

Andrew from Lilburn, GA on 5/13/2019

1998 BMW 5 Series

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I retrofitted my BMW 3 series(E36) with a steering wheel from a 5 series (E39) that has radio and cruise control buttons on it. I had to add a 1k ohm resistor between the red and pink wires on the ASWC-1 to make it would work. The steering wheel swap was really easy the buttons only needed power and gound to work. The buttons generate the commands for the I-Bus to control the factory radio, but the bus input pin on the radio is powered, by adding the resistor it allows the ASWC-1 to see the signal from the steering wheel buttons.

Pros:

Cons: Resistor info is apparently known, but not mentioned in the instructions.

Sounds good in theory. Directions aren't clear as to which adapter you are pulling which wire from. Also, it appears that there seems to be variation of wire colors. I'm a fairly smart guy and I can not for the life of me figure out how to hook this thing up. I've called support twice and they are very kind and very helpful, but there is just a disconnect and I can't figure it out. I'd return it but I dumped all of the packaging. I'm going to probably either stick it on a shelf somewhere or pay a local shop to install this thing.

2006 Ford Expedition

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I hesitate to write a review because I have not reached out for tech support yet. I got the prewired harness with this wiring included. It appears to me that the wiring was done correctly and better than I would have done. The unit has a reset hole and another with a led that flashes multiple signals to tell you certain things. The instructions lead you through the code flashes. Mine ultimately says it does not recognize the Jensen radio. There is a reset procedure but that hasn't worked yet either. I will take the dash apart soon and see what else can be done with tech support. In the mean time I can just reach a little farther and turn the knob on the radio. I wanted the steering wheel controls to work but wouldn't mess with this again and would send it back if I didn't have to take the connector out of the prewire harness

Pros:

Cons: Aggravating. Just wanted to install it and have it work. Not crazy about the instructions either. Count the lights,

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Our Subaru has steering wheel controls that you forget how nice it is to have them until you put a radio in that does not support the controls. This clever device got all but the phone controls back up and running. I have to point out that the wiring is tough for us beginners , hang in there reread the directions a few more times you will get it. At first try the controls did not work but as a friend once told me "if.its electrical and not working make sure you have good ground". Sure enough rechecked ground and all was good

Pros: Great having steering wheel controls back with new radio

Cons: Tricky to install

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This was the hardest part of the install for me and I could never get the Axxess-provided programming instructions to work. It automatically synced with my car for volume, scan, and source, but my attempts to re-program it to jump between preset stations instead of scanning never worked, even though I followed their provided instructions. Fortunately my headunit has settings that allowed me to control this so in the end I was able to make it work, but not through the Axxess adapter itself. Also, to be clear, this makes AUDIO buttons work, not Bluetooth; that is a separate module at an additional cost.

Works Great. My only issue was that even though I paid for the wiring service, there were two wires that needed to not be connected for my vehicle. When I called for help the first tech did not determine this. After receiving a replacement unit with the same problem the 2nd tech dug a little deeper and came up with the solution

2009 Nissan 370Z

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed this on a 09 370Z. I used a Sony radio. It works great for changing the radio presets and volume. I can't get it to change tracks on CarPlay or cds and presets. If I change the settings to change tracks it changes it to only change to the next station not preset. Overall I am happy with it because I would rather change presets and volume than tracks.

Pros: Let's you use steering controls again.

Cons: Have to decide if you want it to change presets or tracks not both.

Intermittent functionality, unreliable!

Samantha from Sewell, NJ on 4/21/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I'm on my second of these SWC-1s, and I will not be buying a third! The first one I had worked without issue for about 6 months. The volume up / down and answer call / end call buttons then began to work intermittently. Onto the second unit, and it worked without issue for about a week before the same intermittent functionality began. I updated my headunit and both of the SWC-1s, and that buys me about a day of all of the steering wheel controls working... The SWC-1s refuse to behave reliably. Very obnoxious. I'll be trying another company's module.

Works out of the box if you CAREFULLY follow the directions

Crutchfield customer from Canoga Park, CA on 4/18/2019

2010 Nissan 370Z

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It works. This is my first installation of a steering wheel control and the instructions are quite clear that the leads should be soldered in, which I did. I think that's probably why it worked out of the box. That being said, this was the most stressful part of the installation. Personally, I think the accompanying Metra harness should be available with steering wheel control wires so you don't have to cut into the harness. Also, my particular installation required loopbacks for the blue tooth connections at the bluetooth transmitter in the trunk. Fortunately Axxess makes the plug becuse cutting the wires in that connector would have made this a much more complex job.

Pros: Does what it says. It autodiscovered my wheel controls.

Cons: I would have liked to see more than pin information. It would have been helpful to have wire colors in addition so the pins/wires can be validated. You do have to cut the harness wires and this is not to be taken lightly. More informaiton rather than less would have reduced the stress level. I don't do this for a living.

Axxess ASWC-1 Steering Wheel Control Adapter

Eric from Minnetonka, MN on 4/15/2019

2007 Pontiac Solstice

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Lets me keep the steering wheel controls on my Pontiac Solstice GXP after installing an Alpine iLX-W650 head unit. Installing the adapter was a little tricky, as I was missing some necessary information. I had to call tech support to program the unit, the tech, Charles, was very helpful. For some cars, like my Solstice with OnStar, you have to begin the auto programming, which will fail and activate OnStar instead of the volume controls, then cancel OnStar, and hold the volume down button while restarting the auto-programming process. Once I learned this, I was able to get it working quickly. The only complaint I have is that I was not able to override one feature using the custom programming phone app. I don't use OnStar, so I wanted to re-purpose the PTT long-press, but for some reason I was not able with that specific action.

Pros: - Kept all my steering wheel controls - USB to OTG app interface is really slick

Cons: - Wasn't able to reprogram the PTT button with the android app

A Must-Have for All New Installs

Works really well with my Subaru Outback. All buttons on steering wheel are functioning, even the voice command button activates Siri on my iphone. Pleased with product. Installation was a little harder than the last time. They supply less instructions and direct you online to the instructions. I had to speak with Crutchfield staff to find the most helpful instructions.

Pros: Very functional. Crutchfield staff helpful for questions.

Cons: Wiring instructions take some time to figure out. Axxess staff take forever to get on the phone and sound irritated to talk to you.

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Crutchfield recommended this adapter for the Axxera AV6118Bi. The manual recommends the PAC SWC adapter. Maybe that's why I'm having trouble with this one. They're the same price so why not recommend the correct one in the first place? I may just give up on the steering wheel controls but then I have to admit that I wasted my money on it. I've used Crutchfield in the past with good results. This time around it's been a disaster. My dash has been apart for days and I'm no closer to making this thing work.

This did not work for me despite a lengthy conversation and walk-thru (including a hard reset) with customer service.

I emailed my technician to let her know it never connected for me, and never received a response. Its not the end of the world for me to not have steering wheel controls, but it would have been nice to receive some sort of response or an option for credit or a refund.

Does exactly what it's supposed to do. No problems at all with wiring or operation. Very expensive luxury in my opinion though. This is almost as expensive by itself as the radio you may be purchasing. It was painful paying for it, very bitter sweet, but once you're accustomed to having steering wheel controls it's hard to give them up.

Total waste of money! This adapter cost this much and is in no way a plug and play item. They mechanic (Auto Electric Specialist) that installed the system was hesitant to modify the factory harness to install this part, so it was not installed in my 2005 Nissan PathFinder. Wish I had saved the expense. When we contacted the service help line, even the tech could not clearly guide us on how to install this piece. Very disappointed with this product.

Their website has detailed instructions for installs in your specific make/model of car. The install was super easy, and it self programmed once plugged in. The hardest part is making sure you wired the harness correctly.

Had to buy a new one to add features

Clifford from Wichita, KS on 1/22/2019

2005 Pontiac Grand Prix

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This product does exactly what I expected but be forewarned that older versions do can not be upgraded to do the things the current ones can. Unfortunately Metra Axxess the only way to find out what version you have is to call Axxess and read them the serial number on the label. For examlple; I had an ASWC-1 that I purchased from Crutchfield in 2014 in my 2005 Grand Prix GXP that I wanted to reprogram to accommodate mobile phone control by re-purposing one of the never used buttons on my steering wheel. After reading the serial number to the Axxcess support technician he told me the unit was too old and could not updated to do that. While I am very satisfied that the new updated unit does what I need it to do I am disappointed that I had to purchase a new unit in the first place. Does not bode well for the future since car stereo technology is advancing so rapidly. I have a different controller in my 2008 Corvette and thus far is has been quite flexible adapting to new technology. It is a RadioPro RP5-GM11 because I knew you were going to ask.

Pros: It does what it's supposed to do.

Cons: Older units not able to keep up with technology. Not cost effective to buy a new one whenever things change.

unable to get working with Sony XAV-AX1000 and 2012 Subaru Legacy

Crutchfield customer from Reading, PA on 1/12/2019

2012 Subaru Legacy

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Like a previous reviewer with a Subaru and the Sony XAV-AX1000 I could not get the ASWC-1 to work with my 2012 Subaru Legacy. I spent hours (updating firmware, manual programming, working with Crutchfield tech support, etc.). Just would not work even though LED pattern indicated it recognized the car and also flashed code for Sony head unit. No matter what button was pushed it just continually increased the volume. Crutchfield even sent another unit, but same issues. I then learned that the Sony head unit had a custom setting to learn steering wheel controls without the need for the adapter. Needed to wire 3.5mm jack directly to steering wheel wires from wire harness and was successfully able to learn the controls directly on the Sony head unit and eliminate the need for the ASWC-1. Crutchfield tech support was good to work with and I returned original for a no hassle refund. That's why I choose Crutchfield, just a really good customer support company.

Pros:

Cons: could not get it to work for my car/head unit combination

Tom from Mohrsville, PA on 12/30/2018

2006 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Didn't work the first time I powered it up (may have been due to bumping volume knob during power up). Reset the adapter and it worked fine. Don't like that the Channel changing buttons on the steering wheel now scan thru all available stations (AM/FM frequencies or every XM station) instead of my preset stations. This may be a function of my head unit. Installation instructions could be better. Would be nice if a pin removal tool was included to remove unused pins/wires because taping all the unused wires is a pain.

Pros: Works Compact

Cons: Instructions

This is more related to the Metra harness that was used as part of the install but it would have been nice if I didn't have to solder into the cars harness for this. The Metra plug could have had a few spare pins and pig tails to make this a super clean and simply install.

Works with the basic steering wheel controls on my Toyota Prius C and Kenwood radio. It is a good thing that no programming was required because the web site instructions are very confusing. The installation sheet leaves a lot to be desired. Not much specific information. The required adapter cable works but once again the instruction sheet is marginal. However, tech support is excellent.

Pros: Worked when plugged in.

I ordered this for my 2004 Mazda 3 and the volume buttons, mute, mode and arrow buttons all work great! I'm not sure if related though but since my installation all of the cruise buttons on the right side of the steering wheel are intermittently inoperable. All connections were soldered correctly and as per the direction given. I belive this module taps into the factory CAN signal and may be interrupting signal for cruise buttons.

Pros: Good for getting volume and other radio controls working

Cons: May cause other steering wheel controls not related to radio to have issues

Beware! Very Confusing Instructions!

Martin from Folsom, CA on 12/4/2018

2006 Mazda 3

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Beware! Very confusing to wire & program. I received 3 separate sets of instructions in my purchase email from Crutchfield for my stereo and this SWC adapter. All 3 sets of directions had different steps, different wires and different "Special notes" called out for use with a Kenwood radio. This made it extremely difficult and time consuming to get it to work properly. With 4 sets of instructions and all 3 with different steps listed for installing and configuring the adapter it took me over 3 hours to wire, troubleshoot, rewire, troubleshoot, wire again, and again and again. I tried calling both Crutchfield and Axxess, but very long hold times at Crutchfield and no answer at Axxess. No way the average person could have figured this out on their own with 3 sets of instructions! My dad would have thrown the entire adapter and radio flying across the street after the first set of instructions! I have an IT Engineering background and through a process of elimination (3 hours) I was able to connect it properly and "Re-Program" the module, because it had been plugged in and wired so many different times during the process of elimination, I had to keep resetting it and re-programming it. What a nightmare! I gave it 2 stars, because it does work properly, but if anyone had told me it was going to come with 3 sets of instructions and take me 3 hours to troubleshoot, I would have "never" spent the money on it and I would have been fine with the steering wheel controls not working.

Pros: it works like it is supposed to. It controls the stereo from the steering wheel controls.

Cons: 3 sets of instructions from Crutchfield. 2 sets were directly from Axxess, but in different formats and completely different wording and instructions. Third set was a consolidated version of instructions from Crutchfield that sent me to Axxess website for the same directions Crutchfield had already emailed me in the first set of three instructions.

Crutchfield response on 12/5/2018
Martin, we're sorry we were busy when you called, but we're happy to hear you got the adapter working properly. We're always happy to help and available 7 days a week. You can see our current hours of operation (and ways to contact us) here.

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

it does work well, ONCE.. you had it figure it out, surprisingly this device took me the longest to understand and program out of all the wiring and different modules. -=Tip: Update The Device's Firmware Before Install, And Use The Same Updater Program To "Override" The Stereo Brand Before You Install, it will save you some time and headaches, trust me on that.

Pros: -Works well, as promised, simple "programing". -Overall Satisfied With The Device.

Cons: Literally comes with NO instructions, you have to go around with this "not so simple" round of steps, look on the internet, get the instructions from their website, which BTW is not very clear (at least for my CAR), took me a couple hours just to digest what the heck they mean "by this" and "by that" .. like if the instruction manual was translated by a person not familiar with the English language....

When I buy things like this I almost always scroll through the negative reviews first. Let me clear one thing up. It will definitely work. Will it program itself in 5 seconds...maybe. The auto detect resulted in mixed up and missing buttons on my Nissan. However, manual programming takes a whole 1 minute and worked flawlessly. In short, it's not as easy as they claim but it is definitely easy to work with and worth the money.

Pros: Allows the programming of all steering wheel controls.

Cons: Auto detect did not work.

2003 Dodge Ram 1500

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The directions for this item were confusing and now matter what I did I could not get it to work. It came pre-wired so I know that it wasn't something I did. It would not recognize the brand new Kenwood deck that it was wired into. I imagine if it auto-detects your deck and vehicle like it is supposed to, it would be very simple and would not require programming. Unfortunately this was not my experience. It sucks to have steering wheel controls in my vehicle but not be able to use them. I'm not a professional, but I have installed many car stereo systems over the years and consider myself fairly technologically literate. I wish I had the other reviews before I purchased it. Now I have to tear my dash back apart if I want to return it.

Pros: Easy to install / wire

Cons: would not work with my vehicle confusing directions

Crutchfield customer from State College, PA on 11/6/2018

2002 Lincoln Town Car

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Ordered the ReadyHarness and this attached right to it. Once I fixed my mistake, the ASWC-1 did the automatic discovery and setup. Everything on the steering wheel worked. I haven't tried the dual command key setup. Hope to put MUTE on one of the steering wheel buttons, maybe long press on volume down? My mistake was not understanding the instructions. I thought all of the wire connections I'd need where part of the ReadyHarness ordered. There was one Gray/Red wire that I needn't to splice. The flashing codes meant something if the had a long flash or a short flash. Since they all flashed at the same rate, I didn't know if it was a long or short flash. Connected that wire and all was well. I also knew to connect the ASWC-1 to my computer (USB) and update the software before putting it in the car.

Pros: Auto connected to my Lincoln and the steering wheel buttons worked.

Cons: I ASSUMED the ReadyHarness had the connections I'd need. Instructions had a required wire that needed to be connected by me.

Worked great out of the box (I did update the firmware before I installed it by using the Axxess firmware updater tool on their website). Phone answer/hang up, vol + and -, and source select work fine from the steering wheel controls. Could not get the PTT to activate for Siri on my Apple Car Play head unit, but that is probably an issue with Nissan, as the other functions worked fine. Lack of PTT is not an issue, as my Pioneer head unit has an easy-to-reach PTT button.

Once me and the phone tech figured it out, it works great! No instructions came with how to get the little box to interface with the car.

Great product, poor support

Samuel from Mesa, AZ on 10/17/2018

2015 Nissan Versa SV

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Product works great. But install instructions and customer service needs some work. I bought a Sony stereo and installed it in my 2015 Nissan Versa note. When it was time to Install the steering wheel controls I looked up on Axxess website my vehicle and all that was available was the Bluetooth bypass configuration. Great, nevermind the digging (YouTube) I had to do to locate the Bluetooth module that was not in the instructions, but after completing that I then asked myself, how do I install the module I purchased? So I plugged in 2014, and there listed the instructions for which wires to connect, should work right? I followed the instructions and connect the appropriate wires then continue following the instructions for auto detect. Device does not detect the car. Follow troubleshooting. Still doesn't work. So I Stop and call Axxess support. They ask about which wires I connected, I receive feedback that they are the correct wires, They proceed to tell me to go through the same motions as the instructions confirming my problem that it is not auto Detecting the car. After going in circles with the support I get off the phone and realize they were not going to be of any help and end up manually programing the module. It is working fine sense then but the install was not fun and their support ended up extending the troubleshooting process instead of actually helping. Just simply unacceptable. Two stars for a working product. Minus three stars for poor instructions and support.

Pros: Allows factory steering wheel controls to work.

Cons: Not up to date with current models, poor instructions and support is not knowledgeable.

It took a while and three phone calls to tech support to understand how to program it, but it works fine!

Pros:

Cons: Instructions about programming were not clear - part about "tap the volume" was misleading and unclear - should be "when light flashes red/green, depress and hold the volume up for a little less than a second, then release and immediately re-depress and hold for a little less than a second, then release and repeat until red/green stops flashing - note - do not depress and release too fast as it will not register."

This was worth the purchase. Had the wires pre-connected so I didn't have to mess with it. Everything just plugged in with no problems.

Retains factory steering wheel controls, easy to setup

Eric from Xenia, OH on 9/17/2018

2014 Jeep Patriot

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Instructions on specifically how to connect to the car's wiring were a little sparse. They showed the pins, but neglected to really state that it was a tap of the bus connection rather than a cut and replace. This was easily found on Youtube for our vehicle. Other than that the unit worked properly. It autodetected our replacement stereo as well as the vehicle and no additional programming was necessary.

Pros: No programming required (for our vehicle) Works very well and is consistent

Cons: Wiring diagram / connection guide online could be a little more descriptive than simply showing a picture of the two wires it needs to connect to.

Works OK, except in my application, 2015 Subaru Forester, only some of the steering wheel controls actually work. Crutchfield could not help me figure out how to get the Push to talk, and on hook, off hook buttons to work, so I have to call Axxess to see if they can help. Hopefully they can, thus the three star review. I'll revise my rating if I can get the full functionality of the adapter to work.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

So far, the ASWC-1 does not work. Crutchfield doesn't supply the proper documentation specific for every car, so unfortunately in my case what I was led to believe was "plug and play" is not the case - installation required more splicing into my vehicle's OEM wires (which I had hope to avoid and I was not informed of) and it still doesn't work. Crutchfield has offered to send a replacement adaptor.

Pros: None

Cons: Difficult to install, directions are confusing and incomplete, can only update with a PC computer, does not work

Works, but painful to install

Mike from Milton, GA on 8/28/2018

2009 Nissan Xterra

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Extremely difficult to get working. However, no one provided me with the instructions specific to my car. Go to Axxess website and get that - we spent 8 hours trying to get it to work using the 120 page user manual only to find out there was a document specific to my car available for download. When I used that, it was 20 minutes of work. So frustrating. I can't believe my advisor at Crutchfield missed that since he was so knowledgeable about everything else. You should probably check your car instructions before buying - my car/receiver combo was "super easy" - 6 steps and I was done. But the instructions did show that other combinations were much more difficult to install. Connections must be perfect - the steering wheel switches use resistence to control volume up/down. If connections aren't tight, the controls won't work.

Pros: Once you get the install instructions specific to your car, easy to install The use of the steering wheel buttons makes up for the lack of tactile knobs on the head end I purchased.

Cons: The generic user manual is completely useless Extremely difficult to make work

Verified customer (What's this?)

I received a package that said "not used" with the 3.5mm Jack and no little box. The only steering wheel control that does anything is the talk button; pressing and holding it restarts the radio and triggers the OnStar "thank you, goodbye" prompt. The volume buttons and the Google mic icon are readily accessibl on the JVC unit and close by in a roadster, so I won't be taking it apart to return it.

Once we saw this review, our Tech Support guru, AJ, reached out to Shane to help him further. We'll either help him get the adapter working the way it should, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.

Works great with my 2010 Hyundai sonata and the Pioneer AVH-2440NEX. Just had to make sure to connect all the wires properly - I didn't read the directions correctly.

Easy installation and direct fit with radio harness. Cannot get the mode button to work on a 2004 4Runner. Call tech support and was told that if you cannot program it and that feature is not available for the car. The up & down scan/preset button works randomly. It will work for a day or a couple of hours and then stop working. The next day it will work for a couple of hours and the stop.

Pros: Direct fit to radio harness

Cons: Mode button does not work on 2004 4Runner. Up & down scan / preset buttons works randomly.
