Overview

Our take on the Axxess ASWC-1 Steering Wheel Control Adapter

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.

Definitely need if you want to keep the steering wheel controls. Love it so far

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 manufactures - Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Kenwood, Eclipse, Jensen, 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-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.

I'm not sure you're asking about the correct product. This device is used to connect a car's steering wheel controls to an aftermarket head unit. There wouldn't be any phones connected to this device. [ Blaine  Jul 05, 2016 ]
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. [ Alex  Jul 04, 2016 ]

The ground is a great answer. also my radio (nex4100) you can change what the button on the wheel does. [ Terry  Jul 05, 2016 ]
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. [ DANIEL W  Jan 25, 2016 ]

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. [ S.  Nov 22, 2015 ]
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. [ DANIEL J  Jan 17, 2014 ]
my answer above is wrong I was mistaken. (can't figure out how to edit) [ cridd  Jan 17, 2014 ]
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. [ KEVIN  Jan 17, 2014 ]
