Crutchfield customer from San Antonio, TX on 7/29/2020

2007 Mazda MX5

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

Works to a certain degree but not total integration. This device allows me to use the steering wheel volume, mode, and mute but not to change the songs or skip. Also for some reason the volume knob which is normally used to change selections within the menu becomes inoperable and you must use the vol button on the steering wheel to scroll through the menu. Yes the connections are correct per the axxess website and you can change inputs via the manual programming.

Pros: easy to install and works, kind of.

Cons: Can be difficult for shade tree mechanic but not impossible. Directions only website not very clear.

Easy to install and comes with great support

Crutchfield customer from Albuquerque, NM on 7/25/2020

2017 Subaru Forester

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

When I installed mine, it seemed to detect the radio fine but buttons weren't right. After triple checking my work, I called support who conceded "sometimes there Subarus want to be manually programmed." He walked my through the process on the phone, and 10 minutes later everything worked. Awesome product. I'd put off swapping my deck for a long time because I didn't want to lose functionality, super happy I did it.

Pros: All of my steering buttons work just like new.

Cons: You're left on your own connecting to the factory harness. I used Dupont wires to avoid modifying the harness. Mine wouldn't auto-program to the car so installation took longer than anticipated.

2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty

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

Overall not a bad adapter. Installation was beyond simple (for an 06 F-250 at least). Just have to hope you get a good box the first time. My first box was defective so it didn't work, but they were quick and easy to ship out a replacement. Only bad thing is it occasionally doesn't register when you use the buttons or is slow, but you'll get that with any brand.

Pros: Easy install

Cons:

Crutchfield customer from Marlton, NJ on 7/16/2020

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

This is a very good product however, I am only giving it four stars. The reason why is it interface with my Kenwood unit was less than optimal. It required a manual programming of the unit. But it's great to have the Crutchfield technical reps available on the phone. After verifying the connections we were able to manually program the unit correctly and everything worked well.

Pros:

Cons: Obviously it's an aftermarket product to work with multiple manufacturers. Consult with Crutchfield To verify its proper installation.

Easy install, 2 wires and one plug for my Buick. Volume control only works in steps, can't hold volume up rocker to increase volume like factory radio. To increase volume three steps requires three pushes of volume rocker switch on steering wheel. Not a big deal, still don't have to remove my hands from the steering wheel.

2010 Silverado to Pioneer DEX-X9500BHS. Auto-detects successfully, works perfectly. A little bulky, especially when coupled with other adapters that may be required. Another little knock is that you need to go to the website to get to the instructions, though probably because instructions differ for different OEM's.

Pros: It works!

Cons: Bulky

2012 Civic

Crutchfield customer from Chesapeake, VA on 7/9/2020

2012 Honda Civic EX

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

Didn't automatically recognize everything the first attempt but after a reset and a second attempt it was flawless! Here are two valuable pieces of information for a 2012 Civic install using this device. First you don't lose the ability to set the factory clock. On the 2012 model there is also a mechanical dial on the dash that allows the clock to be set. You only lose the ability to set the clock using the iMid controls. Second you do not lose the steering wheel phone/voice activation buttons. The grey/blue wire needs to be extended to reach the Honda factory Bluetooth unit behind the glove box. You disconnect the 32 pin factory plug to the factory Bluetooth unit and pigtail the grey/blue wire to pin 15, this will give you functionality of the phone/voice buttons.

Pros: Easy install Works well

Cons:

Ron from EDGERTON, WI on 7/6/2020

2011 Nissan Xterra

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

Worked, and auto detected my system. Please note the directions tell you which wires to connect, and on my xterra 2011 with rockford fosgate premium sound I have found that there is no ground pin in the factory harness they tell you to connect too. Had to create a chassis ground. Directions are short simple and very easily misunderstood. :)

Pros: Works as designed

Cons: The first wire they tell you to connect too, they also say they both must be grounded. So not only are you splicing into the factory wire they both must be grounded. (which I initially missed) and spent 20 minutes trying to figure out why it had not been working. :)

Would be 5 stars if the axxcess installation instructions would have been more detailed. In my case the instructions were for a different wiring harness than what my car has. So this might not be an issue for some people. Thankfully Crutchfield's support kicks butt and helped me figure it out. Thanks Mick!

Pros: Works exactly as it should.

Cons: Installation was awful. Instructions were not accurate for my vehicles wiring harness but it will work.

Christopher from SAN ANTONIO, TX on 6/28/2020

2009 Pontiac Vibe

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

Works with 2009 Pontiac Vibe GT with factory Monsoon sound system and Sony XAV-AX1000. The Sony uses the 3.5mm jack from the ASWC-1 which makes it easy to connect the two devices. I did not need to "Hold Volume Up on the steering wheel" for Programming as the instructions suggested - the ASWC-1 auto-detected my vehicle and radio. For 2009 Pontiac Vibe GT, make sure you connect the black wire of the ASWC-1 and the light blue wire (pin 10 of the vehicle factory harness) to Chassis Ground. This is in the instructions, but easy to skip over as they are included on the same step and it will not work without pin 10 wired to Chassis Ground.

Pros: Straightforward installation Auto-Detection of Sony Radio

Cons: Somewhat tricky to splice into vehicle's factory harness (not much space)

Not real crazy about this setup, still have yet to get it to work as its supposed to. When purchasing the dash kit, the wiring harness that comes with this isn't needed and creates a bit of confusion. I am still hopeful that I can get it to work.

2015 Nissan Frontier but go with iDataLink instead!!

Owen from BRACEY, VA on 6/19/2020

2015 Nissan Frontier SV

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

Did this work? Yes, once it finally got connected properly it did. However, I have so many issues with this product and Metra in general. The poor rating is for a complete lack of instructions and documentation. This is typical Metra. Half of the time their products don't seem to work and when they do you've just about pulled out your hair trying to decipher what in the, um, "world" the directions that weren't in the box are trying to say. A little background. I have installed probably 10+ stereo systems in vehicles over the years, starting in 1995. I have a degree in IT and business management. I'm not a novice, have experience, and I'm not stupid. So no directions in the box? Go to the website. Then you'll need to surf their poorly planned website and figure out which of a couple install documents fits your vehicle and product. Not ideal. Then Metra gives pin numbers on the harness and not the color of the wire. It took me forever to figure out that the harness they were showing, with the connector clip on top, was backwards. I only found this out by calling Crutchfield and having one of their techs give me the actual wire colors. Then the Posi connector wouldn't make a connection with the factory wire because I think the wire was just too small but that's on Posi. I ended up having to splice directly into the factory harness. Not happy about that. This wasn't my first bad experience with Metra. If you can, go with iDatalink

Pros: It did finally work after sooo much cussing and frustration.

Cons: Directions not actually included. Nonsensical directions. Incorrect or made-by-dummy directions. Poor website. Pin numbers instead of color codes. Can't be programmed via cpu connection and download like iDataLink. Splicing instead of harness adapters like, you guessed it, iDataLink.

Great system for my KEN wood , but had some problems on fine details. Had to get this due too 2 Crux systems not working. But please follow directions, only need four wires from unit. But the ground needs to ground to a metal surface and also the one from factory harness that it tells you. On my car was yellow.

Pros: Great system. Loaded the correct code for car and works great after I fixed the 2 grounds to a hard mount surface and that was on the stereo support bracket.

Cons: You need to follow the direction and first find them on there website and do what they say. Don't uses the stereo ground- you have to ground 2 wires ; 1 from the unit black wire and 1 off the factory harness that was a yellow. Then it will work.

It works, but the installation instructions are horrible. There's no excuse for generic instructions in the 21st century. Fortunately for AXXESS they had Crutchfield service to bail them out.

Pros: It has Crutchfield assistance.

Cons: No excuse for ambiguous instructions.

Works well eventually

Crutchfield customer from Knoxville, MD on 6/1/2020

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

I bought this in conjunction with the Metra GM Harness 70-1858 for my 02 Pontiac Grand Prix. In order to make the ASWC work I needed to jump a wire to pin 14. Unfortunately, Metra doesn't put a wire in the #14 pin slot. I had to hack the wire on the factory harness. What's the point of a harness adapter if I have to hack my harness anyways? I got the two wired together by Crutchfield (ReadyHarness). Unfortunately, Crutchfield didn't include instructions to jump around the Ready Harness. I wasted a significant amount of time figuring this out. Crutchfield should demand more from themselves and their suppliers!

Pros: Once you get it installed and programmed it works well.

Cons: Cheap design of Metra Harness used with this product on GM vehicles will cause you frustration.

Works fine, instructions not the most intuitive, extra adapter needed.

Casey from KANSAS CITY, KS on 5/31/2020

2010 Toyota Tacoma

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

The instructions were not the most intuitive, especially with an additional adapter required (Metra #8114). It all just contributed to the rats best of wires behind the reciever, but in the end, works as needed. No programming was required for my application, it just worked when plugged-in. In the end, steering wheel controls for 2010 Tacoma work with Kenwood KIV-700.

Pros: Worked fine when plugged-in, no additional programming required.

Cons: Instructions not the most intuitive. Additional adapter required.

Worked for both my 2018 Honda Civic Sport and my wife's 2013 Nissan Rogue S. I did have to tap into the factory harness for the Rogue, but it wasn't too bad.

I did end up calling tech support at Axxess and they were a big help with the manual programming. So far everything works great.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This worked great for my 2005 VW Passat with Monsoon. There were a few wires that go unused since this is a universal type of product. I was sure to block those off and bundle with heat shrink. The little black box programmed automatically and the two wires was all it needed for the steering wheel volume and track skip control. The box was *almost* too bulky along with all the aftermarket harness wires to smoosh everything into the dash, but it fit. The female 1/8" adapter was not used for my application since my Pioneer head unit had a "WR" connection.

Pros: Easy to program

Cons: black box is a little bulky

Installation was fairly easy with my Sony head unit in a 2006 Honda CR-V. One step in the instructions was a little confusing (one wire needed to spliced into on the Honda side of the connector) but a call to Justin at Crutchfield support cleared things up. My steering wheel controls now work just as expected.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I am 0 for 2 on using this product. On the current install, the volume control and skip tracks buttons work, but the phone buttons on my steering wheel do not work. There is a bluetooth plug that is required to make it work that was left out of my original shipment. Once I received the plug and installed it, it killed all the functions of the steering wheel controls, so I have been forced to just live without the phone controls, the main reason I wanted the adapter. Also, even though I paid to have the wiring harness done, there was additional wiring that had to be done for this adapter, and the connectors I needed and the instructions were not included causing delays to the install while I searched for very small posi taps, and instructions on the wiring. Frustrating as heck, but not as bad as the first time i used this item on my other car and absolutely nothing worked.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Very easy to install. Worked perfectly on my 2000 Chevy Blazer. You'll have to know how to connect the wires, either by soldering or by crimping. Part of the installation instruction was sent over by email. For the rest, you'll have to go to the manufacturer's website for more information on connecting the right wires. Once installed, the module will start programing itself when you turn the key on. Follow the instructions, and the unit will work.

Pros: Easy to install, and it works.

Cons: Instruction was kind of confusing to get to.

This came pre-crimped from Crutchfield, so it was very easy to install. My steering wheel controls work pretty well with my new radio. It took a little while to set it up, but the automatic setup worked once I realized that I first needed to navigate to the audio controls on my dash before following the setup instructions for the adapter.

Pros: Allowed me to retain steering wheel controls for things like volume, input selection, mute, ...

Cons: Setup documentation could be more complete. It took some experimenting and several resets to get it working.

Great Product

Crutchfield customer from Mentone, IN on 2/6/2020

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

After reading some reviews I was very skeptical about this product, many complained it wasn't very user friendly and instruction wasn't clear. Each package comes with a vehicle specific manual of how to run wires etc. That was the easy part and had no issue at all. As far as the first time setup using Auto Detect for your vehicle it wasn't very clear. Took me a few videos to figure out what I was doing wrong. When initially fired up It goes through a rapid flash process and is trying to detect the vehicle, for this process to work you need to press volume up button before the process times out! Other then that, the product works as intended.

Pros: Installation is very simple and manufacture gives you vehicle specific guide.

Cons: First time setup and instructions are a bit confusing

I installed this adapter in a 2002 Buick Park Ave. It gives me all the functions of the original factory radio. Really makes it nice. Most of the functions operate the same as they always did.

Pros: retains the original features to seek, change presets, change volume

Cons: Since my car has a temperature control button on the steering wheel it requires installing a couple more wires . Not a big deal you just need to know which color wires to hook up . The staff at Crutchfield was very helpful at explaining what I needed to do to make it work.

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

Wish I could give a negative 1 the product Would not connect to my device Crutchfield blamed the company the company blames Crutchfield it might work for any other vehicle but if you get the ready harness service be prepared to be on the phone and Not get any questions answered and get a piece of crap that is not hook up to your vehicle because it was wired wrong in the first place yay Tech-support was very very friendly and I guess helped as much as they could all except for somebody giving me a solution to a product for which they sell they do not have the freaking proper information on and they don't employ the people who can obviously wire a premade freaking harness so glad I threw my money Way on top of the 200 that I spent this piece of junk So glad I just dropped $1400 on a freaking stereo maybe I can give away more money next month hit me up if you'd like some free money because evidently I'm giving it away

Pros: Wish I could give some pros but I don't have any considering it still doesn't work or maybe they could give me another pro like maybe buy a 200 piece of crap

Cons: Nobody can tell you how to hook it up to Subaru when they send you a picture and obviously doesn't look like the same picture the pens don't obviously lineup and when you do follow them up is already too late but the good thing is you can call right before they close and listen to some pretentious bastard pretend to tell you what is on the car they know nothing about and try to talk down to you great customer service my butt

Crutchfield didn't provide any installation instructions for this but defer to the accessory manufacturer which then has you search their website for instructions. Very confusing and definitely not plug and play. This is requiring research to determine just exactly what is suppose to be done. That's what Crutchfield claims they provide.

ASWC-1 incompatability

Frank from Winter Garden, FL on 12/26/2019

2002 Ford Thunderbird

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

This SWC adapter works horribly on my 2002 Thunderbird with a Kenwood DNX-575S high-end system. It was recommended by Crutchfield as I bought EVERYthing with my order; faceplate, pre-wired harness, backup camera relay and this thing... Close to a $700 purchase. I've done a firmware update, tried the "self-learning" regimen several times, programmed it from the PC app and the same thing happens; after working fine for 2-3 days the programming fails and BOTH UP and DOWN volume controls increase volume and sometimes the UP volume changes stations or song played on Pandora...the mute button becomes inoperative as well... The plastic dash panels on this limited production retro Thunderbird can not be replaced and if I crack one screwing around with this component for the third time - I'm outta luck. Very disappointing... Thinking about just buying a PAC or iDatalink adatoer instead

Pros: Simple wiring

Cons: Inconsistent operation

This kit is used in 2015 Honda Accord Sport. The wire harness wire up by Crutchfield using their ready harness services. I used a local stereo shop to put in the head along with all the wires in the vehicle. The original screen resort to be big clock since the camera was routed the aftermarket head unit. The menu access on the steering wheel is flaky. The controls work on some options and not others. I called technical support. They sent out a new harness but the same issue. Along with unable to set menu option in the car. The now original big screen back sometime the back light is bright, other time. It is dark. Firmware has been updated. The install shop showed that the wiring harness doesn't support the Accord Sport Model. Still trying to find a solution

Installation instructions are terrible, research a LOT online first

Crutchfield customer from Folsom, CA on 12/16/2019

2007 Ford F-150

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

I'm guessing when installed right this thing works like a champ... sadly, the directions pointed me to an online website, I went there and the directions were more confusing than anything I've tried to follow before. They would do well to take note from Legos and write really simple and clear directions. I hooked mine up following what I believe were the directions (there were different directions a few times for the same truck model as mine) and it does NOT work right now. More poking around/research online showed me more robust instructions - but I did not find these through the same source as I was guided to through the paperwork provided with this product. I'm guessing when I have time again to pull the stereo out and undo the wiring and to re-do the wiring trying to follow the new-found directions I may be able to get this to work. So - if you are good at sourcing better directions than the manufacturer provides, this is probably a great product. If you try to do things quickly like me and just assume the first source is great - this may never work for you.

Pros: probably works great, but right now, I have no way of knowing

Cons: TERRIBLE instructions for installation - basically, they were wrong the first go around. DO NOT purchase if you are not a good installer already

Easy install once I found the correct instructions. Axxess does not have installation instructions for every model, so check their website before you buy. Of course, I didn't, and they didn't, so I had to scour the interwebs to find information. Once I read the good, the bad, and the ugly, I had to run an additional wire to the MOST ring, but after installation, programming was really easy. I don't think all the steering wheel functions work, but the most commonly used ones do. I suppose I could have called Axxess for help, but what's the fun in that?

Great, keeps all the steering wheel co trolls and work perfectly. I believe this module kept the original car microphone as well. The only issue I had with this module, and the reason I gave it 4 stars only is that the module had to be programmed to the car in order to be functional. I had to Google that in order to find out why was not initially working. This was not mentioned in the papers that came with the module.

Pros: Works great, preserve all the steering wheel control functions

Cons: Wish the module comes with better explanation about how to program it to the car.

East to use. Instructions a little vague but video on youtube is helpful. Price is good. Crutchfield as always is super helpfull. I have been doing business with them for over 20 yrs. And will continue to. Even if its a little cheaper. Their lifetime help line is a lifesaver and a big reason why i do business with them. Being able to retain my steering wheel control was a must. I have replaced my entire stereo system with products for them and wont go anywhere else. Do your self a favor and buy from them.

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

I have a 2013 Honda Civic with steering wheel controls for source, track, volume and answering/ending blue tooth cell phone calls. I used this Axxess interface to connect my new Pioneer MVH-S622BS receiver to the steering wheel controls. It worked perfectly, programming was super easy and the interface recognized the new deck almost instantly. I only had to connect power and ground and the two input wires from the steering wheel connector behind the radio. I did not connect the wires for answering cell phone calls, it is easier for me to just use the phone functions on the radio itself.

Pros: Works great and really adds value and convenience to my new system. The part is super small, easy to mount in the dash near the radio opening.

Cons: None at all.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Worked great for 2017 Nissan Sentra (with base radio). Word of warning, if you have the base nissan connector (with 2 resistive wires for SWC), make sure you read the pin instructions carefully. For example, when connecting to the factory-harness in the car for the SWC, pin 6 is dk.gn., pin 15 is pink, and pin 16 is lt.blu. It is is the mirror image pinout of the instructions that come with the unit itself. Thanks to the great tech-support that helped solve that problem, They answered right away and were very helpful - would buy again just for that!

Pros: GREAT customer service

Cons: Instructions should more clearly indicate pinout is mirror image.

Simple to wire once you have tracked down the necessary information from the manufacturers website. Auto programming did not function. Manual button assignment did not work.

In the end it works but messing with getting it set up and functioning took longer than the whole rest of the installation process combined.

Relatively easy install for the average DIY to install. Only had to splice 5 wires. Responsive customer service (via email). During initial install, my hands-free buttons (on/off hook, PTT) were mapped to the adapter, but did not function. After working with customer service and running through manual install, I realized the problem was the HU and not the adapter. The aftermarket HU did not have the ability to do remote BT handsfree functionality , only from the main screen (and no possibility of PTT while using BT). All the functionality problems I had with my steering wheel controls were the result of the HU I bought and not the ASWC-1 adapter.

Very unsatisfied

Product did not work with 2012 Nissan Titan. Tried for several hours trying to get it to work. Crutchfield tech support was no help. Axxess tech support was no help. Even he became frustrated. Would not recommend this item for a Titan of my year. Crutchfield should stop bundling this part of their recommended stereo package.

Pros: Absolutely none.

Cons: Hard to figure out wiring with bare bones instructions. Had to call too many tech supports to ultimately not get it working.

Works, but instructions are unclear

Justin from Ft Collins, CO on 10/4/2019

2013 GMC Sierra

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Used this with the door chime and On Star module for a GMC Sierra, the Axxess GMOS-LAN-01 Wiring Interface. The instructions are unclear on both parts, and how they work together. The ASWC-1 comes with a wire harness, and a smaller wire harness. The main wire harness gets discarded to use the other wire harness that comes with the GMOS-LAN-01 interface. The problem is nothing is clear on the instructions for each piece. There is a lot of guess work with these two parts to make them work together. Everything now functions as it should, but the muddy instructions are very unlike most harness experiences I've had with Crutchfield in the past.

Pros: steering wheel controls function

Cons: wiring harness unnecessary, Crutchfield directions just tell you to look up manufacturer directions. Manufacturer directions are very unclear.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I hooked it up properly and it didn't work... I called Axxess directly and verified I wired it right... the very rude guy on the phone treated me like a idiot and told me I needed to pull it out and download new updates to it to make it work... I didn't figure I needed to work for audio shop to install this??? Also all the instructions are online... can't you send a paper one?? I didn't have the means to hook it up to a computer... so I currently have a pricey part installed but no stealing wheel controls ??

Pros: ...

Cons: Instructions are all online a kinda confusing. Customer Service from Axxess was terrible. Didn't work because I need to update it?? It's what was given to me for My vehicle for My stereo I purchased!!

this product is difficult , had to splice into the car wire harness, and still don't work. for the steering wheel the only thing that works is the up on the volume button not the down, very unhappy with this. the Crutchfield team did everything they could do. very happy with them. maybe i had a bad one. don't know and tired of fooling with it. even to lazy to take out of my car, meaning take it all apart and re splice the 2 wires i cut into.

Happy with the product; however, upon install it failed to work properly. It was self programing; however, on the Steering Wheel buttons functions were reversed. Volume up and down were backwards and on the channel up and down buttons. The mode button switched between all options of the receiver. The channel up and down controlled the volume; however, it was reversed. I had to disassemble the dash and reset the unit, after speaking with Tech Support from Crutchfield. Reset unit, works GREAT!!!! Only received 4 stars due to having to dismantle dash and reset unit!

Pros: Easy install, especially with Metra Vehicle Specific Wiring Harness (totally worth price). Self Programing. Works great, as described.

Cons: Had to reset unit after install; removing entire dash kit to get to unit. Although Tech Support did assist, they seemed puzzled in how to resolve the issue and vague. I ended up taking everything back out and resetting entire unit. That worked, however, took extra time.
