The SWI-JACK allows the customer to retain the use of their steering wheel or rear seat radio controls when replacing the factory head unit. Works with Alpine's OEM Steering Remote Ready radios. The SWI-JACK also retains the use of heater control buttons on GM vehicles. The SWI-JACK features just can't be beat...

New Updated Version! The SWI-JACK rev. 1.4.16 or higher, now controls JVC and Kenwood, Clarion and Blaupunkt radios with wired remote inputs.

The SWI-JACK is so universal that you only need one SKU# to cover over 95% of the vehicles made from 1986 to current. New vehicles coming out every year? No problem! Never be stuck with a vehicle specific type interface.

Assign the buttons on the steering wheel to any of the aftermarket radios available functions:

  1. Alpine: Volume Up, Volume Down, Mute, Track Up, Track Down, Preset Up, Preset Down and Band.
  2. Kenwood: Vol Up, Vol Down, Mute, Source, Seek Up, Track Up, Track Down, Disc Up/FM, Disc Down/AM.
  3. JVC: Vol Up, Vol Down, Mute/Power, Preset Up, Source, Seek Up, Seek Down, Select, Band.
  4. Clarion: Vol Up, Vol Down, Mute, Seek Up, Seek Down, Band, Source.

Compatible with:

  1. JVC headunits with a wired remote input
  2. Alpine headunits with a wired remote input
  3. Clarion headunits with a wired remote input
  4. Kenwood headunits with a wired remote input
  5. Blaubunkt headunits with a wired remote input
Additionally...
  • The SWI-JACK has non-volatile memory which keeps all programming in memory even if the vehicle Battery is disconnected.
  • Great for convertibles. Unlike the SWI-X, the SWI-JACK is not affected by sunlight.
  • The SWI-JACK not only covers Ford, GM or Chrysler/Dodge but also it covers Acura, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chysler, GMC, Honda, Hummer, Infiniti, Isuzu, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercury, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Saab, Toyota and Volkswagan. Oh, did we also say it covers Harley Davidson motorcycles?

Excellent Product

September 3, 2013

Worked first time. Unlike a competitor's product, this steering wheel control is solid and reliable. Don't fall for the automatic setup ruse: all these products require some form of setup and car-specific wiring. This one was clear and it has worked perfectly ever since I installed it in a 2004 Buick Century to control an Alpine car stereo.

This is an awesome device that has a huge compatibility list, I've been using it for the past couple months and loving it. One caution, from time to time the wiring causes to trigger the mute button or menu button. But barely noticeable and otherwise awesome!

I'm not recommending this product for a car with steering wheel controls. I had to trade this in for another product to make them work. Other than that, no complaints.

Easy to use.

March 11, 2012

The instructions are straight forward, easy to understand. I wanted to keep my steering wheel controls as factory as possible, mission completed! Unless I missed something, when you program it while the vehicle is running, that is how it will remember the programming. While the vehicle is off and in the "time out mode", the controls do not work the same as when the vehicle is running. Using the controls during the "time out mode" seems to erase the memory some how. Like I said, I may have missed something, but that seems to be the only flaw the unit has. Other than that, I am very pleased and would recommend this item.

Installed it but haven't used it because....

September 26, 2011

In order for this unit to work on a 2010 Scion XB, you have to install the little dampener in one of the wires that connects to your steering wheel controls. Well it only came with one of those little guys, which was very small and got lost even after an hour long search. So i would assume that the product is fabulous if you don't lose that little guy and can make it all work!

works great but a little slow

November 7, 2010

I have had this in my car for about 6-7 months or so. I would say that it works pretty good. Though it was a chore figuring out how to program and install. It also doesn't react very quick to button taps on my steering wheel. I have to hold the button down versus simply tapping it with my stock radio. Other than that though I like it alot and does all the features I need it to do.

SWI-JACK --> good, but could be better!

November 1, 2010

I bought this unit to adapt my Tacoma's steering wheel controls to my new Kenwood receiver. Here's what I'd say: PRO'S: It works as advertised (most of the time). Very thorough instructions. CON's: Tedious--> you have to determine what resistor you need (if any), pick it out of the kit via deciphering the resistor's color bars, break into the wiring, and solder the resistor/wiring into the harness. Why don't they just have a few pre-soldered & heat-shrink'd resistor assemblies with connectors on the ends that you "plug in" to the device. This could be as easy setting a DIP switch or even jumpers. Needs to be "smarter" --> it doesn't seem to have the ability to interpret a "hold" vs a "tap." Many car's steering wheel switches/oem radios do have that functionality, giving each button more than one function. Regardless, I love having the steering wheel buttons functional, and would definitely buy this again.

Works great. My steering wheel buttons control my new head unit just like they did the factory one. Setup is easy. Response is a little slower than with the factory head unit but once you get used to it there are no problems.
