Buy a better unit

George from Kitty Hawk, NC on 11/24/2020

2014 Chevrolet Cruze

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

Absolute trash can of a component, after 2 hours of trying and finally finding the correct instructions on a forum where someone had the same issue I was able to get it to recognize the Chevy Cruze's steering wheel controls. This is after downloading their app and programming it to a Sony head unit as the unit kept going to an alpine. 2 days later it worked fine and now only 2 of the commands work and they are for the wrong functions. So now I get to take the whole dash apart to reset the unit and start over again. Probably will take this out and buy a better unit, something I shouldn't have to do if I paid extra to Crutchfield for the controls to retain this function and pre-wire.

Pros: None

Cons: Works for a 2 days at a time. God awful instructions, none in the package but are on the website.

Axxess ASWC-1 Steering Wheel Control Adapter

Crutchfield customer from Trabuco Canyon, CA on 11/7/2020

2004 Honda Pilot

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

Installation was simple and straightforward. I was using the ASWC-1 with a Boss head unit which is not directly supported by Axxess The unit was recognizing the steering wheel controls but the ASWC-1 unit was misinterpreting them. I contacted Boss technical support and they solved the issue by resetting the unit. It took two tries but the original steering wheel controls now work as programmed. Very convenient and much safer. I would have deducted a half-star for the lack of support for the Boss unit but after several days of using the controls, I decided the slight inconvenience did not out-weigh the benefit.

Pros:

Cons:

Axxess ASWC-1 Steering Wheel Control Adapter

Roger from MILLSTADT, IL on 10/31/2020

2018 Honda Civic LX-P

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

This will work on a 2018 civic lx-p. Trust the aswc-1 vehicle specific wiring diagram from Axxess. Be sure to check the vehicle connector on the xsvi-1731-nav harness. For my install it had the white-green and grey-red wire pins switched. I had to tear apart the 1731 harness and cross the wires for the steering wheel controls to communicate. So it was mainly a 1731 issue. It was nice to be able to install this module without having to touch or splice any vehicle wiring if used with the 1731 harness. I had to manual program the radio brand. Watching the Axxess video aided in getting that to work. It's a lot easier to watch someone do it in real time than just reading a list of steps.

Pros: It does actually work!

Cons: not a simple plug n play for me Auto programming didn't work Programming with led flashes was confusing at first until I found and watched a video

Crutchfield customer from Frankfort, KY on 10/22/2020

2017 Nissan Sentra

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

This worked perfectly for my 2017 Sentra. The general instructions in the package were a bit vague, but the vehicle-specific instructions available from the Axxess website were easy to follow. I was able to install this and set it up in less than 30 minutes. The only reason I gave four stars instead of five stars is because the remapping and assigning long press functions are a bit cumbersome. Overall, though, this is an excellent product, and I have no major complaints.

Pros: Easy to install, works with many vehicles, auto-detects your receiver

Cons: Assigning long press functions is cumbersome.

I love this thing! Combined with the MiTO-02, my '08 Lancer is a beast!

Pros: Factory steering wheel controls work perfectly with new DDIN, more responsive than stock MMCS, works perfectly with Apple CarPlay.

Cons: Combined with the MiTO-02 wiring, there are a lot of wires and components you have to cram in the dash, however, my new DDIN is low profile with no CD player, so I, personally, had plenty of extra space.

Nice product, OK instructions

ROBERT from MCKINNEY, TX on 10/13/2020

2015 Mazda 6

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

I got my steering wheel controls working, but it was a challenge. Turns out I can't read instructions. Or more specifically, the instructions are written in paragraph format rather than in a table or bullet points, so it's easy to miss stuff. So I accidentally missed one connection, which caused me some troubleshooting that might have been avoided if the instructions were easier to follow. The instructions were correct, but they could have been written and formatted more clearly. The biggest recommendation: Re-read each step very carefully.

Did not work on Honda Civic 2013

Guest from Winnipeg, MB on 9/28/2020

2013 Honda Civic EX

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

I've purchased this controls adapter for my Honda Civic 2013 with Pioneer stereo unit. Downloaded installation instructions from Axxess website which were written for Civic 2013. Read them a couple of times and started installation. It was pretty straight forward, did everything according to the instruction, connected to exact wires... result - no buttons working. Did reset, was trying to update the firmware which was the latest already, self-test passed well with no issue, however adapter does not recognize steering wheel buttons. I spend long hours trying to make it work - no luck. Gave a call to Crutchfield service and was said that I got a bad adapter and can get a new one. I was not going to have a free time to spend on re-installation, so ended up just to return adapter. Will try to install it once more time later, next year. No complaints on Crutchfield, customer service is fantastic, but Axxess needs to improve their product for sure.

Pros: Hope given to retain the steering wheel buttons

Cons: Did not work on my Honda Civic 2013. Made everything as per instructions provided, checked connections - no help.

Andrew from Boulder, CO on 9/28/2020

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

Super easy to install. You'll only need the power, ground, and one of the other wires depending on your vehicle. I bundled the rest of them and stuffed them away. I decided to keep the extras in case I change cars and want to use this again. Just follow the Crutchfield-provided instructions for connecting to the harnesses of the radio and car. You'll need to go to Axxess's website to find what the other wire you'll need is. i used a posi-tap to connect to the car's wiring and it worked perfectly. One nice thing is that it auto-detected my car's system so it automatically worked. Not sure if that's the case for all cars.

Pros: Painless to add to install

Cons: None

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

Don't try figuring this out using your cell phone...well, not for me anyway. Doesn't come adequate instructions for the dozen wires and only using three of them. Called Crutchfield support, but had to wait 30 minutes for a call back. During that time I got on my PC and visited Axxess's website for vehicle specific instructions. By the time CF called back I had figured it out and used the called as verification. For my application- red & black connected as expected, but vehicle specific required gray w/red tapped into pin 18 of factory harness. You'd think that at this point, for a typical Ford application, that the Metra adapter would have a pin 18 wire that is used for steering wheel controls. I mean, are there that many people forgoing their steering wheel controls for an item at this price?

Pros: works as advertised setup was automatic- didn't have to do anything

Cons: having to visit website for vehicle specific instructions took some time while in the middle of soldering everything together

Plug and play, No

Crutchfield customer from Kennewick, WA on 9/1/2020

2005 Honda Pilot

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

Would be nice if only the instructions came with it. Having to chase links on their web site given the cost of this, good profit margins. Wire as directed, double checked and a second set of eyes on, unit is not functional. Tested all continuity, no open connections. Glad radio came with remote.

Pros: It plugs into the controller nicely

Cons: A lot of wasted wires only used 4 for this application and the instruction clarity needs work, having to cut into a wire on vehicle side of radio plug, and on the radio side of harness, why have a disconnect plug! Steering wheel controls on this Honda are on a separate connector from main radio plug from factory and Axxess isn't connecting to those?

Didn't automatically detect the brand of my stereo. I had to manually tell it that I had a JVC unit. It's also a little difficult to understand the series of flashes that tells the user what the unit is doing/sensing. However, it does do the job it's intended to do, so that's nice.

Easy 4 wire connection

4 wire hookup. Power, ground,swc wire plus 1 wire to your vehicles pin connector. Easy to install, just make sure to solder, or use good heat shrink butt connectors as this SWC doesn't like t-tap style connectors.

Pros: Easy to use, downloaded instructions and was using in a matter of less than 1 hour.

Cons: doesn't like t-tap connectors, not really a big deal though. Just nice to know going in.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I dont know how well this work with other cars, but it certainly doesn't work too well with my Subaru Impreza 2015 and Sony XAV-ax 5500. First this unit refuses to configure itself automatically so we had to set up everything manually, second even if we set up everything manually, the answer and decline phone call buttons still don't work, I'm not sure if ax5500 is too new or it simply doesn't work well with Subaru Impreza 2015, if whoever reading this review is considering buying ax-5500 with this control unit and happened to own a Subaru Impreza 2015, better think twice before placing your order

Pros: Neat appearance, with LED indicator to help you set up steering wheel control more easily

Cons: The overall installation is some what confusing and instruction is not really that helpful if you don't have any experience with installing a receiver

My steering wheel controls work after installing a new head unit in my 2006 Miata. On my first install attempt, it didn't work. I called Axxess' tech support, and after about 15 minutes on hold the tech (who was a bit gruff) was able to figure out my problem and explain it to me. I don't blame him for being gruff - I was not really getting what he said. Overall, great product and good company.

Pros: - It works. My steering wheel controls work after replacing my radio - Their web site has a lot of instructions on how to install it in general, and they have vehicle-specific instructions as well

Cons: - It's still a bit confusing to install (but not NEARLY as hard as trying to do it without the adapter, which would have been impossible.

Worked fine but did need to call for help with installation. My Boss radio was not listed in the instructions as a radio manufacturer for syncing. It did sync just fine though. Also, if being used in conjunction with the stereo wiring harness all you need to do is plug in the box. The wires aren't needed at all. The instructions didn't explain this. For these 2 reasons the install wasn't as easy for us as it really ended up being once we got on the phone with Crutchfield support. Crutchfield support was awesome and helped us right though the installation!!

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.

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.

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.

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:

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

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. :)

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)

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.

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.

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.

Take your time and read the instructions - worked great

2005 Volkswagen Passat

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

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.

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.

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.
