One Interface to Control Them All

Finally, a simple solution to retaining the steering wheel controls of a vehicle when installing an aftermarket stereo. Introducing the Axxess ASWC-1, from Metra Electronics. This universal steering wheel interface is designed to make the installers life much simpler. Unlike other steering wheel interfaces, the ASWC-1 requires no manual programming. After making all the proper connections, this interface will automatically program itself with the new stereo and the vehicle. No more tedious programming of each button. The ASWC-1 has a Dual Color LED status light that will flash according to the programming and inform you when the sync is done. Its simple. Just plug it in and you are ready to go! Now installations can be faster, easier, and simpler! If you still prefer to do the programming manually, Axxess has left that as an option.

Ready for Any Aftermarket Stereo

No matter what type of vehicle or aftermarket stereo you are planning on installing, the ASWC-1 has you covered! It is fully compatible with Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Kenwood, Eclipse, JVC, and more. As long as the stereo has a wired steering wheel remote connection, the ASWC-1 will connect and interface with the vehicle. Plus, the Metra ASWC-1 is able to be updated. This means that the interface will never be out dated. For the simplest way to retain the steering wheel control in your car, choose the Axxess ASWC-1!

For you Do It Yourselfers, Make sure to Download a Vehicle Specific Guide. Also, the same link will determine if your vehicle is truly compatible and if your vehicle will be auto-detected by the ASWC-1.

I love the ASWC-1. This bad boy was hella easy to install. It does the jib perfectly. I lost no starring wheel controls at all. Everything functions just as it did when the stock radio was in my car. It pairs with Pioneer decks like it was made specifically for them. It's small enough to hide anywhere you want. Even behind the deck.

I'm running into a lot of trouble wiring this product, but its also very difficult to find a good wiring diagram for my 2014 Challenger. However, it did not take up much room behind my Head unit, so I'm impressed with the functionality of this product compared to the pain-in-the-@$$ factor.(Minus wiring, of course)

Fairly easy to install, did not need programming

January 6, 2014

Installed in a 2001 Honda Odyssey with a JVC unit. Unit seemed to auto-sense and do its thing, and needed no additional programming steps. Steering wheel controls worked right away, and have had no issues with several days of use.

Documentation was fairly clear, so you don't need to download anything; however, the Axxess web site lets you download a page with specific instructions for your vehicle, if needed.

It came with all necessary wiring, including a mini-plug adapter (which I need for my JVC unit). Also came with a tiny resistor (that I did not need) that was easy to lose (mine fell out of the packet without me realizing, so be careful when opening!).

I have not (and probably will not need to) update anything on the unit via its USB port.

The unit is small, so can be tucked away easily behind radio or dash.

My only issue is that the Odyssey steering wheel had one button to skip to the next CD track or the next preset in the radio band. Now I find that it seeks to the next station frequency (not the next preset)... but I think that is really an issue with the JVC head unit I installed. I could (and may) re-program theASWC-1 (since it has the capability) to do the correct thing -- but that will affect other function (like BT audio playback, which skips correctly right now).

Overall this is a pretty simple item to install and use. Ive had 2 of these so far the first one just didnt work. The second would turn volume down when the car was on and turn up when it was off and in accessory mode. Im currently waiting for my new one to arrive. As always sonic has came through with warranting them and I think that goes a long way when you think about purchasing anything that has a decent price tag and or quality. As far as the product goes I would recommend to anyone looking to retain their steering wheel controls.

best steering controler ever

January 19, 2014

The most intimidating part of installing this unit is making sure you use the correct wires. I anticipated that programing would be a nightmare hitting buttons and reading lights blinking and holding switchs for 3 secounds, well you get the idea. The install was EASY after making sure the wires were conected correctly, I just turned the key on and waited about 15 seconds. ALL DONE. steering wheel controls word perfect, no delay. even found out if i hold buttons down there is more functionallity. for examble. hold down deek before the install and get nothing. hold down seek after install and the radio will go to the next preset. just tap seek and it seeks. My install was the ASWC-1 of F150 king ranch 2006 with factory subwoofer.

I have used it to pair my head unit (a JVC DVD) with an universal steering wheel remote control for AV system. It's working very nice, but I have to reconfigure the buttons. It is not a bug deal to do it, but I need time for it.
Otherwise, it is a very useful device. I recommand it if you need to pair your after-market AV or stereo with your original controls from steering wheel.

But one thing it's not that easy to install it yourself, since when you take out the dash, it has thousand plug, and you don't know which one to go. Anyway, i suggest to call their customer service, big help from them!!!

I needed some tech help but Metra's support was incredible (Thank you!). Once everything was sorted out, it functions perfectly with my factory gear and the Kenwood DPX500bt.

My only issue was the instructions for the Ford Focus (years 2000-2007) weren't completely clear. For clarification, Pin 19 (Brown and Yellow wire) on the Vehicle harness needs to be grounded to the vehicle, not sharing the same ground as the headunit as it will cause issues. The best way was to tap into the wire and run a lead which runs directly to the body. With that sorted it, it programmed itself in 15 seconds and hasn't been an issue since! I recommend.

I used this in my 2005 Silverado. the first one worked great for about a week, then it started playing with the volume, first turning it down, then cranked it up so loud it blew my factory speakers and while it was doing it I had no control over the volume until it decided to stop. the first time I was out of the truck and heard the stereo from outside, opened the door and the damage was done. the second one doesn't work at all. It just blinks at me with that stupid red light. I gave up and started saving for new speakers. by the way the controls still work great with the stock stereo.

Priced a little more than more primitive units but easily worth the extra apx. $10 for ease of installation. Look & design is mostly immaterial as it is behind the dashboard. But the LED information confirmed the installation was correct before turning on the radio..

The instructions tell u what color the factory wire is so that u can splice onto that instead....which in my opinion was very easy......tap the up button repededly on the steering controls repeatedly while it connects at start up and it will automatically recognize it.....works great.

I have to say that it has worked flawlessly with my kenwood ddx470 on my 2013 mazda 3. No lag actually changes modes faster than the stock HU did. Install was simple,but do as I did for my after market harness,buy 2 and add the pins you need. This way you don't have to splice into vehicle harness as instructions indicate.

Also before you panic as I did insure your HU's remote sensor is on in the settings.

If you like to keep your controls easily accessible like with the factory steering wheel controls, then after adding an after market radio this is the way to go. It is easy to setup and works with most brand name after market head units. It makes controlling your new radio as easy as the factory radio, right from the steering wheel controls.

'05 Camry XLE. Works like a charm

April 6, 2014

Used with the Pioneer DEH-X4600BT. Rather than cut the stock wiring harness, I just fashioned three pins to plug in and secure in place.
As expected, it just worked when I powered everything up for the first time, including the "trip computer".
I remapped the track up/down buttons to phone on/off hook, and while I would have preferred slightly more detailed instructions, it also worked on the second try. Now I wish I had more buttons on my steering wheel. :-)
Definitely recommended if you're installing an aftermarket stereo and want to keep your steering wheel controls.

The ASWC-1 recognized the receiver with no problem and the steering wheel controls are fully functional with the JVC receiver. I recommend this adapter but don't be shy about asking AXXESS for help.

good call on the adaptor...

September 20, 2013

ordered the adapter for a 2012 Toyota, went to install with a new deck, wanted to do the install without splicing wires...NEEDED A WIRING HARNESS which is sold separately to install without splicing...(make sure you order the correct harness when you order this item unless you dont mind cutting the wires in the factory harness)...- if you dont care about that then you can use the provided harness and follow the instructions on the AXXESS webpage corresponding to your vehicle. very simple to use. ASWC-1 got here a day early. ordered the aforementioned metra harness a week later and that arrived a few days late. no big deal. once i got it, hooked everything up and it worked immediately. barely had to do anything; provided instructions are simple and clear. very pleased with this item, definitely recommend. just dont forget to order the harness separately!!!!

Worked flawlessly

June 21, 2013

Bought this product from Sonic to use with a Kenwood BT555. The install was real easy. However the instructions do not say you need to splice into your factory wire as it is not supplied on the wire harness. Not a big deal and most likely if you are installing this yourself you can pretty much figure that out...

After it was installed you pretty much turn the car on press a button and BAM it was done with nothing else to do. Recognized the car and stereo...

As for the controls they seem to work perfectly. There is sometimes a delay while using Pandora but I do not think it is the Axxess controller if anything I would say it is the stereo linking to the iphone. For the most part it is all pretty instant. Great product and makes things easy

I've had this module in my car for almost 2 monthsnow without any major issues at all. It's small and compact and it came fully updated with the latest firmware also. It's small and compact so I could easily mount it behind the after market deck completely out of site. The skip song button ocassinally doesn't work but that's most likely an issue my own steering wheel controls.

Happy with Axxess but install was challenging

January 25, 2014

My first attempt at installation I incorrectly assumed a secondary black wire from my Kia Optima harness was a ground. It was a to-ground wire so the Axxess did not work. The LED and reset button are far down in the black box so I couldn't tell if I had a faulty unit or wiring. Note- if you have it wired with power the LED is very bright, you won't miss it. The blinking LED light sequence is difficult to read- the quick versus slow blinks are to close. Once I had negative ground problem corrected the installation should have been a few minutes but with a Kenwood DDX770 deck you must enable remote control- Menu, System, Remote Sensor=On. I spent hours fighting with it. Axxess support pointed me to the solution after about a 15 minute hold, their support hours were very reasonable. Once installed this unit does exactly what it is supposed to do. Seems like it is old technology and there would be more options such as multiple LED's to communicate system status. There was no resistor supplied and there was no issue with detecting the Kenwood deck as other posts and YouTube videos suggested there may be. I would definitely purchase this item again and I do not believe there is any competition.

Works great Pontiac G6

January 8, 2015

Used this in my wife's Pontiac G6 to hook a clarion nav system up to it. Worked great, but had to contact Axxess in order to figure out the trick to it. There is one wire you are not supposed to hook up in the Pontiac G6, but the instructions don't tell you that. Would have been nice to know before I spent like 3 hours trying to program it. After I got the trick for it I was able to program it in like 10 min and it has been working great ever since.

Will this work with the module in my Harley and an Alpine HU?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

The Specs of your Alpine headunit will tell you if a steering wheel control module will be accepted. You did not provide a model number, so I cannot confirm. In regards to your bike, you will need to contact Metra/Axxess to make sure your specific trim level will accept the module.

Joel G on Oct 8, 2014
Best Answer: The axxess ASWC-1 will work in both these applications. For more information and vehicle specific wiring go to the axxess interfaces site. I recommend studying the wiring diagrams before the initial install and crimp/ziptie wires not needed before hand. It makes it much easier when the dash is torn apart and there are wires everywhere.

Best Answer: Hello Bashir,

You will ABSOLUTELY need the Axxess ASWC-1 to retain your steering wheel controls. "Prewired ASWC-1 harness included" this implies Just that, the HARNESS is already attached but it does NOT include the MODULE which is the 'brain' of the operation. The harness is included to make installation of the ASWC-1 easier.

To reiterate, you NEED the ASWC-1 module WITH the Axxess XSVI-9005-NAV harness.

Can this share the same 12 accessory and ground wire as the head unit or does it need its own separate ones? My 2011 Crown Victoria LX seems to only have one of each so I'm not sure how those need to be wired.
Marty T on Mar 1, 2015
Best Answer: You can definitely share power & ground. The only thing to watch for is the "switched" versus "unswitched" power leads to the head unit. You'll have one of each, with the unswitched one being connected direct to the battery (for radio "memory"). You *don't* want that one for the ASWC-1.

I need an aftermarket radio with Bluetooth for a 2001 Grand prix (gtx) and the steering wheel adapter, any suggestions?
Lynn B on Dec 16, 2014
Best Answer: The radio you choose will depend on your budget and the features you are looking for...i always go with pioneer head units.

In terms of the steering wheel adapter, the axxess ASWC-1 works great but doesn't always work for the Bluetooth buttons (which i doubt your car has since it's a 2001.) So it shouldn't be an issue for you.

I just bought a new Kenwood radio for my 1995 bmw 740i and i even bought the correct harmest but i still cannot hear any music from speakers can someone help me ?
EDDIE E on Dec 14, 2014
Best Answer: Based on your question. I would say to double check your wiring and make sure all speaker leads from head unit are in fact wired correctly. and that the harness is the Correct one. There is a chance that you have a factory ampikifer and if so. You will need a specific bypass harness. You can not typically use an aftermarket head unit with a factory amp... If by chance you have a factory amp that no bypass is avail for. You may just need to run new wires direct from your Kenwood to your speakers. Personally I always run my own new wires. But it does come at an additional expense.

Will this work for a chevy 1500?
A shopper on Dec 4, 2014
Best Answer: Simple answer, yes. Without proper vehicle information I can only give a blanket answer. There are many things to consider. Do you have a factory Bose system? Do you have OnStar and if so do you wish to keep it? The aswc-1 will work with only 3 to 4 wires connected depending on the head unit. You will need a vehicle specific wire harness regardless of the radio you choose. You need ignition, ground and data for aswc-1 to work. Assuming the 1500 is a 2014 or later the data wire you're after is a green w/black stripe in the steering column. As far as ignition goes...the best place to get it is from the aftermarket radio harness. DO NOT try to get it at the ignition. A lighter plug that loses power when the truck is off is acceptable as well. In the end I recommend either GMOS-LAN-09 for non-Bose w/OnStar or LC-GMRC-LAN-09 which retains factory chimes. Hope this helps!

how do you hook it up to a Nissan 2011 altima coupe ?
robertpablo on Aug 7, 2014
Best Answer: You will hook up the black ground wire to the ASWC to HU ground, red power wire from ASWC to HU, and then there are two color specific wires based upon your vehicle. There will be a remote wire from your HU to the ASWC. You auto program it and then your set. Mine had two wires one it told me to ground out but, each vehicle is different. Remember if you unhook your battery after auto program is done you might have to turn the remote function back on on your HI.

I have a 2012 Chevy Silverado with OnStar and steering wheel controls. What do I need to retain these and install a Pioneer AVH-X3700BHS ?
LKLLOPEZ on Jan 12, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Kurt,

The Axxess ASWC-1 will absolutely be necessary to retain the Steering Wheel Controls. In regards to everything else you need, our website is designed to show you the accessories, and answer your question in the process. Simply add the headunit to your cart, enter your vehicle information when prompted, and allow the accessories to be added along with the headunit. Said accessories is what is needed to properly install the headunit.

Alternatively, you can contact our Sales Team to place your order, to insure you get the proper parts. In addition, doing this will allow us to swap for a METRA harness (which I recommend, because it makes installing the ASWC-1 easier) . Also, please note, the GMOS-04 WILL NOT!! work for you vehicle.

I would like to retain the factory steering wheel controls for the music and dash computer (odometer, mpg calculator etc...).

Jensen VX3020
Jensen VX3020
Best Answer: Theoretically (the axxess control and Jensen radio should work for steering wheel controls only) if u just want to retain steering wheel controls (if u want warning chimes it's another module). The axxess is a universal fit so it basically fits all major manufacturers even Jensen(the model u are getting is steering wheel control ready). For the auto detect feature to work on your pickup (once wired appropriately with easy to follow instructions)with ignition on and watching the led (should blink) tap the volume up repeatedly (the led should go out after one or two taps) then enjoy the light show don't touch anything and light should come on and stay on if completed successfully, worst case scenario after a few attempts and it still doesn't work is manually programming it. The detailed instructions should help u troubleshoot if something doesn't go right the first time, and the only thing u won't have is warning chimes and possibly rear seat audio controls (if applicable) that's a separate module for those functions, and modules do come with or without onstar. Hope this helps, and Good Luck!
