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?
  • Ability to use Mode button on newer vehicles

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.

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!

February 1, 2012

The following review is for SWI-RC, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

When this product was installed in my 2010 Subaru Legacy GT and Pioneer AVIC 3D, it was working alright at first. After a few weeks, the volume-up button on my steering wheel became a little finicky. I found I had to hit the mute button on the wheel, and then the volume up would work again.

I had the wiring inspected by three different technicians from different shops. There were no issues. I even had the unit re-wired on one occasion.

In the end, I did a warranty exchange with Sonic Electronix, and they were amazing in helping me with the RMA and exchanging for an Axxess ASWC unit.

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.

Generally Impressed

March 9, 2014

The following review is for SWI-RC, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

The PAC SWI-RC does exactly what it advertises: interfaces a vehicle's existing steering wheel controls to an aftermarket stereo system. Since installing it, I haven't really had any problems, only a few minor concerns that I believe are probably inherent to the current state of the industry.

Installing the unit into my 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee (ZJ) wasn't very straightforward, and required a significant amount of research, and consultation with a person I know who'd installed one in his own Jeep. This isn't the case with most vehicles, which have very well-detailed instructions included with the unit, however finding the information I needed (which ultimately came from PAC themselves) could have been much easier. This isn't really a failing of the product, but of the manufacturer's website.

Once installed, however, the controls work great. I can very easily and reliably use any of the buttons on my steering wheel to invoke their respective commands, and not once have I had an issue with the product not working. I'm generally impressed with the device.

My only issues, at this point, are that I couldn't program the controls to mimic the factory ones (where the buttons on the left of the steering wheel control track up and down, and the right control volume) and that sometimes pressing buttons one after the other prevents the commands from working. These aren't the fault of the device, however, but the lack of a set standard for how steering wheel controls work. In my Jeep, one wire carries the signal, and depending on voltage, the factory radio interprets what command is being sent. While it's probably possible to make something that can easily mimic this function, it's unlikely to be cost-effective to do so, so I can't really complain.

Pros:
Reliable, easy to use once installed
Good value for money
Most vehicles have detailed instructions that are easy to access (many are included in the box)

Cons:
Difficult to install in some vehicles, and programming is a roundabout experience
Servicing the unit can be difficult, depending on where it's placed during installation
Finding installation instructions for uncommon or older vehicles can be difficult at best

The following review is for SWI-RC, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

Love it - you can leave it in the up position if you like, so when you start the vehicle you don't have to wait fifteen seconds before you're in "backup camera viewing" mode (by which time you've already backed out of your parking spot).
GPS has topographic outlook -magnificent.
BUT
SCREEN WOBBLES when touching - it makes typing in a pickup truck VERY difficult.

USB has an issue - it asks for a name for the device and a Windows Compact Edition error window comes up when I plug my Android (Galaxy S3) in. Problem is - you touch the field asking you to type something in and nothing happens. You're expecting a QWERTY keyboard to pop up. Nothing.


Bootup time is a bit slow.
GPS will sometimes try to route you to the last route you went to - in spite of being cancelled.

WISH IT HAD A VOLUME KNOB.
WISH IT HAD A TUNING KNOB.
Because of the wobbly-touch screen (it moves back and forth like a millimeter every time you touch it) - Tuning is HARD. There's a "SLIDE" rule or something UP AND DOWN. No matter WHAT you think - you'll do it wrong. If you're on "97.5" and above you is 100 and below you is 90 - which way do you slide it? And do you slide the NUMBER (i.e. touch it) or the "ruler" next to it? Say - to get to the next channel? Answer? NEITHER. you press and hold - for a LONNNNNNNG time a HARD BUTTON on the unit until you hear a "BEEP" and it goes to the next channel. A SUCKY thing is that you can't (unlike almost all radios) set the screen or your steering-wheel button to have "next" mean "Next Channel", or "seek / scan" - "Up" on steering wheel = your next preset. Drive 30 minutes outside of your area and that's useless.

Gripes aside - TUNER PULLS IN CHANNELS including A.M. Many radios are horrible at this - not this one.

GPS is simply magnificent. QWERTY - suggestions -all good. The wobbly touch screen is annoying. Also - you have to CONFIRM YOUR ROUTE THREE TIMES!? "Select Route - 'check!'". "Yes - I want to go that way.". "YES!!! GO!" I.e. THIS CAN LITERALLY KILL YOU.

Backup cam comes on fast.

Works well with steering buttons.

Satisfied.

Does the trick - sort of...

December 1, 2009

I can't speak for the install as I had someone install this. The functionality is ok at best. There are delays for every function pretty much. I am told that is how they work. Bluetooth functionality would have been nice too as my car has buttons for that too that are now non-functional. I am told by PAC that they have an updated version out now that allows for minimal Bluetooth functions now but too late for me now. Sonic was cheapest out there and their service was speedy and reliable.

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.

this thing was a pain to hook up. all the instruction are there and if you follow them it does work, but it was like schematics for a nasa space ship. i bought it for two bottons on my steering wheel to continue to work but if i had to do it all over again.... i wouldn't. it took me longer to install this than soldering my wiring harness, mounting a dash kit, and installing the radio.... it's kind of like when you have to do all programing on a car alarm.

Unit gets confused

April 13, 2010

The installation was EZ. The unit worked perfect for 2 months, after that the unit gets confused. What I mean I like to control the volume and down on the steering wheel controls but it will skip tracks or go to the next track instead. Playing with it a few more times it goes back to working right. It seems that the unit needs to relearn the function over and over again. It does this by its self.

Costs to much to have so many problems

April 25, 2011

This adapter is one of the most aggravating things I have ever had to use. I had one go completely bad and am on my second one now. Both have randomly quit working just to start back 5 minutes later. I've tried reprogramming it several times and the problem always comes back. It seems to happen if the temperature changes or if I turn the volume on the radio up more than half way. It will then start doing random things such as the volume button skips tracks, the seek button will mute the radio, or none of the buttons work at all. Other than the times I want to rip it out and throw it out the window it works fine.

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.

Turns 3 very useless buttons to 3 very useful ones...

February 2, 2010

I added the SWI-JACK to my new Clarion NX409 in my 2000 Acura 3.5RL. Installation was not very difficult, even for a novice such as myself. Programming, however, was quite a feat. Mostly user error, but partly a finicky device - it did take me many days to program it successfully. In the end, the volume up and down buttons work perfectly, and the track up button seeks the next station up on my radio. I'd prefer if the latter would change presets like it used to before, but perhaps I'm asking for too much (let this be a warning to all CLARION owners, it will probably do the same for you). It does change tracks on my Ipod as it should. Delay at first was a pain, but I was used to it after 5 minutes. I am so happy to have these buttons back again, this device is absolutely worth the money to me. To save yourself hassle, it is best if you install it while you install the radio.

Works great and not too hard to install

The following review is for SWI-RC, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

I would definitely recommend this product to use if you put an aftermarket radio into your vehicle. Install only took about 20 minutes programming it took about another 5 minutes it really isn't that hard to do is just a few steps that you have to take. the hardest part about it was actually finding the main bus wire to hook into which I found was under my steering column, but a simple YouTube video help me find it pretty fast

Great product easy to install simple as 1-2-3 other than the wiring part but that's even simple. I used it on a Chrysler Pacifica and it worked very well.

It JustWorks

November 20, 2016

The following review is for SWI-RC, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

Purchased this to adapt a Kenwood head unit to work with the steering wheel controls in an '01 VW. Reason for purchasing THIS model: only one I could find that was listed as working with the earlier (non-CAN-BUS) VWs. And, work it does. Once I figured out a fine detail with its programming routine (hint: once you run out of factory buttons to press, STOP!), it does JustWork.
And, the interface box itself is quite small - makes it easy to find a place to stash it.

I love the way i usas able to program it and connect it to my car, at first it feels overwhelming but just read through the whole manual and data sheets and the process becomes as easy as a puzzle for 5year olds the perfect project for DIYers. And it supports tons of cars and a variety of stereos

I changed stereo in my 2008 Harley Davidson Electra Glide and wanted to use factory controls. Easy setup and install, programming was simple and straightforward.
