Universal RF Steering Wheel Control Interface: The Axxess RFASWC is designed to add steering wheel controls to vehicles that
do not have integrated factory steering wheel controls when used with an
aftermarket radio with a steering wheel control input. The RFASWC consists of a
RF steering wheel control interface module, RF keypad remote, mounting bracket,
and wiring harness. The Axxess RFASWC is able to give you, the driver, the
ability to control your aftermarket radio without taking your eyes off the road.
Compatibility: The Axxess RFASWC steering wheel control interface is
universal and can be used in most any vehicle without factory steering wheel
controls present. The RFASWC supports the following aftermarket head unit
manufactures; Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Kenwood, Eclipse, JVC, Clarion, Dual,
Jensen, Visteon, and Valor. The aftermarket head unit must have a SWC (Steering
Wheel Control) 3.5mm input or steering wheel remote control input wire
Note: Not compatible with Rosen, CarShow, or Parrot
receivers. Please consult the
Crutchfield Car Selector to see if your vehicle and aftermarket head
unit is compatible.
RF SWC Interface Module: The included RF steering wheel control module
features a built-in RF receiver and connects to your aftermarket head unit with
steering wheel control capability. The interface module connects to the SWC
3.5mm input or SWC input wire (blue/yellow) of your aftermarket head unit. The
interface module receives RF wireless commands from the RFASWC's remote keypad
and then relays the same commands to your aftermarket head unit via its SWC
Note: The RF SWC interface module's harness must also be
hardwired to your
vehicle's 12-volt accessory and ground. The interface module is designed to
be hidden behind your aftermarket radio.
RF Keypad Remote w/ Mounting Bracket: The included RF keypad remote
features a built-in RF transmitter that sends wireless control commands to the
RFASWC's interface module and your connected aftermarket head unit with SWC
capabilities. The RF keypad remote includes a mounting bracket and rubber strap
which attaches to your vehicle's steering wheel. The keypad remote features six
buttons that are pre-programmed with standard commands; like Volume up/down, Seek previous/next,
Source, and Answer/End (for aftermarket Bluetooth head units). In addition, you will be able to re-program these buttons (up to 18
commands to choose from).
Note: The mounting bracket assembly features a CR2032 battery which
powers the RF keypad remote. This battery is replaceable.
LED Feedback: LED flashes indicate what brand of radio the RFASWC is
connected to during initial setup.
