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.

More details on the Axxess ASWC-1 Steering Wheel Control Adapter

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface (ASWC-1) lets you retain your vehicle's OEM steering wheel controls when replacing the factory radio with an SWC-compatible aftermarket radio.

Wiring Advisory: You'll usually have to hardwire this adapter into your vehicle's wiring. In most vehicles, the factory radio plug does not have a wire dedicated to the steering wheel audio controls, so splicing & soldering is often required. Metra does provide custom wiring instructions for all confirmed compatible vehicles on their website.

Compatibility: The Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface is universal and can be used in most vehicles with factory steering wheel controls. The Axxess ASWC-1 supports the following aftermarket head unit manufacturers - Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Kenwood, Eclipse, Jensen, JVC, Clarion, Dual (Axxera), *Parrot, Visteon, and Valor. The aftermarket head unit must have a SWC (Steering Wheel Control) 3.5mm input or steering wheel remote control input wire (blue/yellow).

Note: *Parrot head units require the Axxess AX-SWC-PARROT steering wheel control harness (120AXSCPRT, sold separately). The ASWC-1 is not compatible with Rosen or CarShow receivers. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm compatibility.

Programming: The ASWC-1 can be programmed in one of three ways:

  • Flashing the Module: The interface can be "flashed" using a Windows computer and a USB cable (not included) to update the firmware and program the steering wheel buttons.
  • Auto Detection: The Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface has the ability to auto-detect certain vehicles and aftermarket radios. It will preset the steering wheel controls to the aftermarket radio automatically, so no programming is required.
  • Manual Programming: If your vehicle is not auto-detection compatible, you can still manually program the ASWC-1 to your vehicle's factory steering wheel controls and aftermarket head unit.

Reconfiguring Controls: If desired, the ASWC-1 can be manually programmed so you can make your vehicle's steering wheel controls function the way you want them to. You can also assign a secondary press & hold feature to the buttons. Limited only by the functions of the aftermarket radio.

LED Feedback: The steering wheel control interface features an integrated LED to indicate programming status.

Non-Volatile Memory: The Axxess ASWC-1 has a non-volatile memory, which means the steering wheel control interface will remember the programming even if the device is disconnected from your vehicle.

It should plug right into the connection you remove the factory radio from. You would then connect the colored wires to the corresponding harness on the new radio. Our tech support can walk you through it step-by-step if you'd like. You can reach them at the number at the bottom of your invoice.

[ Bradley  Apr 13, 2019 ]

I'm not sure, my Miata just has a mode button and a volume button on the steering controls. The mode button works, but sometimes it cycles into ATT ON, which isn't even a mode, and then it's hard to get it to cycle back into the correct mode again. The volume up and down seems to work too, but it gets loud too quickly when you hold down the button. I was never very happy with the adapter and just ended up using the controls on the HU instead, but these issues could be the result of the way I wired it up.
[ John  Apr 08, 2019 ]
A
Sorry Shane - not sure what the info button is. On my 2005 Dodge Ram it controlled volume, changing tracks and going forward and back on those tracks. Also start, pause and stop of CDs. For radio it allowed all the controls that were on the radio itself: changing and identifying the stations, albums and singers, changing from AM to FM abs going to favorites on both. All of these activities were reflected on the radio display. Basically, every function that was on the backside of the OEM steering wheel. Hope this helps.

Your after market plug may not have the wires in them. Check the wiring diagram and look at the plug. If those spot are empty you may be able to connect wires into the empty slots of the plug.

It's definitely NOT plug and play, BUT, super easy to install. I was intimidated at first, then read the instructions a couple times and went step by step and it wasn't bad at all. If you got the part number after putting in your year, make, and model, it should work. Remember, if you ever have any issues, you can call Crutchfield's tech line.
[ Jens  Sep 13, 2018 ]
A
Yes, If it dose not work at first, you will need to push the program button next to the L.E.D light, with the radio turend on and the light will stay green and you are set to go. . . . .

Hi Richard. This is merely a system to make your existing steering wheel audio controls work with your new deck. You don't need to open the cover, you just need to plug the wiring harness into the AWC-1 and then wire it in behind your new stereo deck. Also you don't want to plug your phone into this, your phone will be plugged most likely into the USB slot on your new stereo.

Q
I installed this adapter with a Pioneer AVH-280BT DVD receiver on a 2008 Mitsubishi outlander. The steering wheel controls work except as follows: when playing a cd/mp3 disk, the next/back cause the AHV=280BT DVD receiver to go into fast forward/rewind mode for a few seconds then an error code appears. The phone controls work to answer/hang up a call but the call initiate control is not operable. I called tech support and reset the adapter numerous times but the problem was not resolved. Has anyone experienced this issue? Any solutions? Thanks...

The ground is a great answer. also my radio (nex4100) you can change what the button on the wheel does.

I hate to give you a "have you tried this?" answer, but I had some initial trouble getting this unit to work as well. In my case it was flaky overall, and the flakiness turned out to be sensitivity to poor grounding. The best I can do is suggest you try a different source of ground and ensure a good quality ground connection. TBH, the error code issue sounds like a protocol or software timing issue rather than a simple connection problem but that's the best I can do.

Q
After setup, led blinks green and red alternating. Steering wheel controls do not work. What did I do wrong? Prior to the alternate flashes, I get the 7 green flashes and 2 red flashes (for kenwood), which I perceive as meaning the wires are correctly connected and setup detected the proper aftermarket receiver brand.

Anybody have experience with this product in a 2005 Grand Caravan w/ steering wheel audio controls? I'm using iOS, and I want to buy a head unit and adapter that will allow me to map Siri, call, and audio functions to the steering wheel buttons. I ask because there are no default call buttons on my steering wheel. My steering wheel has six buttons dedicated to the stereo.

Kevin, No experience with iOS on the Grand Caravan, but I installed this on a 2005 Camry with six buttons. It was plug and play with a Sony head unit that has a separate button for call functions and a mode for Bluetooth phone and audio. Hope this helps at least a little. Dan M.

JamesC, I installed my adapter according to the instructions for my Mazda CX7, and it worked perfectly. This was a few years ago, and I do not remember the actual colors of the wires I connected, as some are not used with my Kenwood DVD/Nav unit. My recommendation is to follow the included instructions, and if still in doubt, call Crutchfield for further assistance. Sorry I can't be of any more help.

My steering wheel on my 2012 Nissan Altima has radio and volume controls and also a answer phone and hang up phone buttons. Will this allow for me to still answer my phone and hang it up when paired with Kenwood DDX471HD after market stereo? The Kenwood DDX471HD does have bluetooth capability but I want it to work with my steering wheel controls. Any help is appreciated

Q
Does this adapter fit with the stock harness or do i have cut the wire and splice together?
[ Matthew  Jan 16, 2014 ]

A
The harness adapter that comes with your specific model Axxess will match your OEM connector -- however -- there are more than just a few wires to splice. You must splice all the radios harness wires to the Axxess wire harness, then tap into your OEM radio data line so the SWC can communicate with whatever radio you purchased. If you do not have the skills for this, suggest you contact a qualified professional.

It's been a few weeks but yes you do have to splice a wire or two. Was a very easy install and it works great. Would recommend it product.
[ KEVIN  Jan 17, 2014 ]

This was a much easier install than I thought it would be. Easy step by step directions allowed me to put this in my Camry with a Sony head unit in about 15 minutes. The hardest part was making connections to the supplied car-specific plug. Once installed our was plug and play on the steering wheel controls.

It fits as is on a 2005 infiniti g35x. No splicing needed. Works perfectly as well.
[ cridd  Jan 17, 2014 ]

You have to wire by splicing into you radio/factory harness or use t connectors. Easy to install and program once you figure out the wire color code. And programming on what brand headunit you have my Kenwood dnx890hd was simple. Just remember you have to ground you stock radio harness, aftermarket radio harness and aswc-1 ground to the same ground!!! That's the only issue I had. Goodlook! Product work like oem in my 2010 Altima coupe.
