About the Axxess ASWC-TOY-LEX Steering Wheel Control Adapter

Keep your steering wheel audio controls

The ASWC-TOY-LEX adapter from Axxess allows you to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to car stereos from Alpine, Clarion, Dual, Eclipse, Jensen, JVC, Kenwood, Parrot (with adapter), Pioneer, Sony, Visteon, or Valor. (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-TOY-LEX adapter from Axxess allows you to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to car stereos from Alpine, Clarion, Dual, Eclipse, Jensen, JVC, Kenwood, Parrot (with adapter), Pioneer, Sony, Visteon, or Valor. (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 couple of wires to the Crutchfield-supplied harness, then plug a connector on this adapter into a Toyota plug, and the adapter will automatically recognize your Toyota or Lexus. Once connected, the adapter's memory retains its programming even if battery power is interrupted. A USB slot allows you to keep the ASWC-TOY-LEX current when updates become available. Warranty: 1 year.

Wiring Advisory: You won't have to splice wires on your vehicle, as this interface plugs right into your car. You will have to connect switched power (12-volt ACC) and ground to the harness/interface you're using to connect your new car stereo. Axxess does provide custom wiring instructions for all confirmed compatible vehicles on their website.

Features

Steering Wheel Control Interface (for Toyota & Lexus): The Axxess ASWC-TOY-LEX steering wheel control interface lets you retain your factory steering wheel controls in select Toyota & Lexus vehicle's when replacing the factory radio with an aftermarket head unit that features a steering wheel control input.

Vehicle Compatibility: The Axxess ASWC-TOY-LEX steering wheel control interface is compatible with the following 1999-2009 Toyota & Lexus vehicles (as of 10/8/15).

Make Model Year
Toyota Avalon 2003-2004
Prius 2001-2003
Sienna 1999-2003
Lexus GS300 1998-2005
GS430 2001-2005
LX470 2001-2002

Note: Please consult Crutchfield's Vehicle Selector to see if your vehicle is compatible.

Head Unit Compatibility: The Axxess ASWC-TOY-LEX steering wheel control interface supports the following aftermarket head unit manufactures - Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Kenwood, Eclipse, JVC, Clarion, Dual, *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-TOY-LEX is not compatible with Rosen or CarShow receivers.

Auto Detection: The Axxess steering wheel control interface has the ability to auto-detect your Toyota or Lexus vehicle and aftermarket radio. It will preset the steering wheel controls to the aftermarket radio automatically, so no programming is required.

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

Non-Volatile Memory: The Axxess ASWC-TOY-LEX 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.

Wiring: In addition to the two molex connectors which will plug into your vehicle's factory wiring, you will need to hardwire three wires of the ASWC-TOY-LEX to your vehicle. Connect the black wire to ground and the two red wires to accessory power.

Q
2001 Toyota Sienna van I installed the Axxess ASWC-TOY-LEX. There is no place to plug the smaller plug in and I can only get the volume buttons to work on the steering wheel. Is there a hidden plug in the van I'm not seeing? Or do I have to cut the harness in the van?
