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, from Metra Electronics. This universal steering wheel interface is brand new for the 2010 line of Metra Axxess components and is designed to make the installers life much simpler. Unlike other steering wheel interfaces, the ASWC 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 has a 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 programing 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 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 will connect and interface with the vehicle. Plus, the Metra ASWC 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!

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)

'05 Camry XLE. Works like a charm

April 6, 2014

The following review is for ASWC-1, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

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.

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.

This product worked great in my 2012 GMC ACADIA W/ONSTAR. In order for me to connect it to the factory pin # as described in the instructions. 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.

The instructions were clear. once attached as shown in the clear instructions the synchronization went quickly and smoothly in my 2008 Explorer. I soldered and and used heat-shrink tubing to insulate. Have had no problems since start-up. 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..

Fairly easy to install, did not need programming

January 6, 2014

The following review is for ASWC-1, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

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).

HANDS ABOUT PAC

August 3, 2011

First off let me say I was a 12 volt installer for about 8 years and I can tell you this is the easiest steering adapter I have ever installed. I got this with the Pioneer 4300dvd for my honda ridgeline. when I went on axxess web site to check vehicle compatibility, and it said it would auto detect my truck. They had specific instructions for my truck in .pdf that where SPOT ON. It was literally ACC power, ground, the green/red steering control wire and ground out the other thats it. I plugged it into the stereo and turned the key to ACC, it did the rest. It was way easier then any PAC ive installed and its cheaper to boot. Check out the website if your car is under auto detect get this all day long.

January 19, 2014

The following review is for ASWC-1, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

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 was a little weary about using one of these since years ago when these type of accessories first hit the market they were generally unreliable.

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.

Axxess ASWC for Edge 2008 with Pioneer

March 11, 2011

Most of the Ford Edge steering wheel functions programmed correctly out of the box but the default programming does not match the factory settings. For example the station advance or Track Advance button ended up being a tune advance and time advance instead. I have made several attempts to manually reprogram these buttons to the Ford factory set usage without success. In addition I lost the phone answer and phone hang-up functions on the steering wheel. Same story with trying to manualy program. The problem might be more about the Pioneer unit than the ASWC. I could not get any buttons to work with a PAC interface.

This steering wheel interface controller lived up to its promise of easy installation and auto programming. I followed the directions on how to connect the wires. Soldered and heat shrunk each connection. Then followed the procedure for auto programming. It instantly detected everything and worked perfectly right away. Great product if you want to retain your steering wheel controls.

The instructions were a little fuzzy. They ones in the box referred me to the ones online and I was able to make sense out of mashing the two together. Nonetheless, it works 100% between the alpine headunit and the jeep steering wheel controls. My wife wanted a remote with her stereo and the alpine didnt come with one, this made her happy.

December 1, 2013

The following review is for ASWC-1, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

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'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.

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!!!

October 6, 2010

Bought this for a mazda 3 2005 along with a Jensen 9424. It says it's compatible with this ASWC. I installed it and it did recognize my car but not my jensen radio. I had to manually program it but the only thing that worked was volume and track controls. Mode and mute didn't, I contacted Axxess tech support. They told me most likely it's outdated so they asked me to send it to them and they would update it for me free of charge. Unless you wanna buy the 60 dollar cable and update it yourself. So I sent it and I'm still waiting for it. Hope it works!!!

Much easier to install than the PAC that only lasted about a year and a half. I also purchased the Metra 70-8114 adapter for my 2006 Toyota 4Runner for easy install. No splicing or resistors (like the PAC) required. Auto programming worked flawlessly between the 4Runner and my Pioneer HU. I don't know about its durability yet. You should check if it works with your car/HU. Most likely it does. Highly recommend.

The following review is for ASWC-1, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

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.
Nice add-on and worth the money.

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.

BUYER BEWARE you may be in for a journey

August 24, 2010

2008 BMW Z4, AXXESS ASWC, JVC KD-A815. Radio works great. The steering wheel controls auto-detected as advertised....then I turn the key off. Turn it back on steering wheel controls don't work. Reset the auto-detect and all is well...until I turn the key off. Repeat. Sonics been great but can't fix since they don't have the $60 cable to update the firmware. If you need the update you have to 1) send it back to AXXESS at your cost and they will update, 2) take it to a local shop that has the cable and pay what they charge, 3) buy the $60 cable doubling cost or, 4) send it back for a refund. When the product works it does a good job. No lag etc. If you have my problem you might pay more for the cable than the unit or chase your tail to find someone with the cable. I'm a little mad at metra/axxess right now as it feels like extortion. Hence buyer beware....you have been warned. BTW my car is a 2008 and the unit was built Feb 2010 but some how the profile was not in there yet....sounds like you want another $60 metra

Best steering wheel control yet!

April 16, 2010

Hey peeps! I've been using PAC on Fords for years and this one was so easy, I was mad that PAC wasted hours of my past life. I installed this in a Ford Edge with the new Pioneer AVH P3200BT (which is a great HU). It could not have taken more than 5 minutes for the whole install and most of that time was connecting the few wires. The unit took about 30 seconds to auto-program and Bada-Boom, Bada Bing! Finished. I copied the install instructions for my vehicle off of Axxess website and if you can read and install aftermarket headunits, you'll find this real easy. I can't believe it's even cheaper than PAC! Sonic's shipping and service to my place in PA was fast, too. Peace......

good call on the adaptor...

September 20, 2013

The following review is for ASWC-1, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

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!!!!

Happy with Axxess but install was challenging

January 25, 2014

The following review is for ASWC-1, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

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.

June 21, 2013

The following review is for ASWC-1, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

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

Revolutionary! Never had it so easy....

April 15, 2010

I've been installing for 10 years, and have been installing steering wheel control interfaces produced by PAC since they were released. I don't know what they are going to do. I just installed the Axxess ASWC last night into a 2008 Toyota Scion and I couldn't believe how simple it was.

Anyone who has any experience with the PAC version of the SWI Interface can probably relate to the 10 minute install 30 Minute Programming that the unit generally demands. With the SWI Interfaces you need to, make sure you have the correct unit for the manufacturer of the radio. You need to program the radio and each individual button on the steering wheel in a specific order, while holding down the programming button on the interface with a micro flat-head screwdriver. What a pain in the neck!

I will never install another SWI interface now that I've discovered the ASWC. www.Axxessinterface.com allowed me to print out step-by-step instructions for the install into the vehicle and were spot on with the wire locations. After I connected the power, ground, and 3 control wires I turned the car on and done. I couldn't believe it! I didn't need to touch anything, and every button on the wheel worked for it's appropriate function!

Way to go Axxess! Except now I may need to lower my price to install these things :-(

I called jvc and axxess

March 4, 2012

I called them to try to max out the capabilities of my cars existing steering wheel buttons and the radio. It seems jvc is a little proprietary (stingy) and not as flexible as they could be with cooperating unless there's money in it. Axxess puts out a good product. I just wish I could use all of the car's buttons.

Great value, easy install

January 5, 2013

Installed in a 2006 Ford Explorer with a Pioneer radio. Installed w/o any problems. Programmed itself, all steering wheel controls worked properly the first time. There were no resistors needed to place inline. Much easier than the PAC that I installed previously. So far I have not noticed any delay when using the steering wheel controls.

MUST READ! 1999 Infiniti Q45

April 28, 2012

Read the instructions. Downloaded wiring info. first sheet is of no help. Side note: At this writing Axxess hasn't done the wiring info for the '99 but the 2000 is identical, so download the 2000 wiring info. Anywho, at the bottom of the wiring info page under Documents click on that. That is the instructions for the wiring connections to your Q.

Works great Pontiac G6

January 8, 2015

The following review is for ASWC-1, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

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.

Works fine on my 2007 Hyundai Sonata Limited

January 9, 2011

I had this professionally installed at a local stereo shop on my 07 Hyundai Sonata Limited. At first they couldn't get it to work. Turns out you need to give it 30 seconds to a minute to do a search after powering it up during initial installation. After that they were able to program it without any issues. They had never installed the Axxess ASWC unit before and didn't stock it. They are now going to stock this brand because of ease of installation.

While they were showing me the features of this unit and the JVC KW-XR810 head unit (read my review of the head unit too) I was told they couldn't program the Mute button to work. I hit the steering wheel Mute button and lo and behold it did work.

Pros

Everything works just fine!
Much cheaper than the competition.....you know...PAC
No resistor stuff to deal with like the competition

Cons...........NONE!

So, yes I would recommend this unit.

Check Radio Compatibility First. Not All Buttons Programmable

July 13, 2011

I had a Dual XHD6425 originally, but when it didn't work at all, I found out it was NOT Steering Wheel Control (SWC) Compatible... so one of my only options was to buy a new radio.. The Axxess detected my new Kenwood radio, and either didn't recognize the car or was showing a fault (bad connection), can't remember which. But, I realized I forgot to ground one of the wires (Pin #19). Once it was hooked up, it was working fine.

Not sure if this because of the radio, the car, or the Axxess adapter; but one of the CONS is that I can't use the Seek/Scan button to move through the Presets while listening to the radio and Seek through songs on my USB flash drive. I manually programmed each button.. I did the Seek/Scan button accordingly, but the Preset Up/Preset Down won't work - the SWC uses One Button for Both of those functions from factory, so it seems only one function can be programmed per button with the Axxess ASWC...

Pretty much, I can either have the Seek/Scan button programmed as Preset Up/Down for the radio presets and not be able to choose the Next or Previous song when using my USB drive; or I can have the Seek/Scan button programmed as Next/Previous song while using the USB, and be able to Seek/Scan through All radio channels, but not be able to change the Presets. Hope that made sense!

Radio - Kenwood KDC-HD545U
Car - 2006 Ford Focus Hatch

January 2, 2011

Before I bought and instaled this, I had the PAC-SWI Jack. The axxess is a million times better than the pac. I had lag issues with the pac, you also had to program it and wire in resistors.

The axxess is so much easier with no lag and it auto programs itself.

Works but took a few trys

March 22, 2010

Paired with a Dual XHD7714 in my 2005 Honda CRV with 95k miles. I happen to have a butt joint for 20-22 AWG wire that went well with the factory wire but was a little of a push for the ASWE wire - however, got a good connection. The on-line instructions leave some room for error. It identified the correct Honda wire - but wasn't really clear on what wire to connect on the ASWE harness. My 1st install wouldn't program (might have been bad crimp on PINK wire 1). Moved it to the middle of the harness (Green/Orange #4) and used the smaller gauge butt and - bam - everything was found and it was programed and ready to go. Used 3M ScotchLok Auto-Taps for power and ground off the radio with no issues.

The following review is for ASWC-1, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

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.

Yesterday I received the Axxes ASWC in the mail, (thanks Sonic Electronix, for the fast shipping) and installed it in my 2005 Pontiac GTO. It works great. I have a Pioneer AVH-P3100DVD with Ipod hooked up so the radio can change the songs instead of messing around with the Ipod. After a few connections to the radio harness, I was up and running, that's it, no programming anything. All my steering wheel controls work the radio, so much easier now. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants there OEM steering wheel controls back, but with an aftermarket radio installed. No bad things to say!!!!

Purchased and installed th ASWC in my 2008 Corvette to add steering wheel radio controls for my Kenwood DNX6960 Audio/Nav unit. The ASWC is easy to install and program (it actually programs itself). It learns the button functions on its own. The response time is almost instantaneous; when you push a button on the steering whell, the radio responds instantly. Only problem that I have is that the buttons for my pre set stations do not work properly; it changes the stations, but simply in progression, not to the programmed presets. Haven't been able to cure this. Volume up and down and tuning up and down work just fine; only problem is with the station preset tuning; it just won't do it. This may be an issue specific to the '08 Corvette. My car did not have factory installed steering wheel radio controls to start with. Overall, I would rate this an excellent product and would recommend it. I would purchase this product again.

I'm neutral on recommending this product because it was pretty simple to activate but when I got a new deck and wanted to reset it to the new deck the one button on it broke. So it became garbage which sucked. Yes it's easy to program but is it quality stuff and worthy of its price and overall function. NO!

I installed this on my toyota tundra with a kenwood head unit. Everything steering wheel controls from volume to mode works perfect. I highly recomend this product.

I installed this product in my '06 Ford F250 SD. Took almost no effort to install and absolutely no setup was required. It worked right out of the box. Pretty good instructions and a very good websited with a lot of help, tricks and tips, which in the end I didn't need either.

If I need another head unit for a different vehicle with steering wheel controls I will get on of these for sure again.

Very easy to install and it worked the first time. Initially installed using old Sony head unit (Mobile ES) then got a new Pioneer and both worked flawlessly in my '08 GTI. Recoding the steering wheel keys is easy.

At first I was not sure that all my steering wheel controls will work. I tried reading the manual and couldn't figure it out. I went to the Web site and locate the information for my car, printed it and setup was easy. Everything works great.

Nice gadget. My next button doesn't work everytime. That's the only con.
I don't know if it's because of my car, my radio, the installer or the aswc.
I own a WRX 2010, with a AVIC-Z120BT.
Worth the price.

Doesn't do too well in cold climates

December 11, 2010

Sonic Electronix was great. The Axxess ASWC is great when it works, but lately (November/December) it has been problematic. I have narrowed it down to not working when it is cold outside. My vehicle stays in a garage which never gets below about 30-35 degrees. Every morning that it is below about 40, this doesn't work. It will work just fine once the car warms up. The caveat is that I have to shut down the deck to get it to "see" the Axxess. So, unless I stop somewhere and shut off my car, I don't have steering wheel controls on my way to work. If I park in the sun, it usually works when I start my car the next time.

Very easy to install in my 350z. No resistors have to be used like in the competition's interface. I installed mine in a few hours but took my time because i am a novice, and i did a lot of soldering. Automatically recognized my kenwood DNX5120 and mapped all buttons except the power off button, which i will have to program manually but appears to be easily done.

There is no lag when pressing buttons
Great value
Very small; i dont have much room back there but it fits anywhere
Able to be updated with new firmware via usb for wider array of support for car models

i would recommend this

The following review is for ASWC-1, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

This product was easy to install with the directions supplied. I had to do the manual set up for my truck, but after that every works exactly like it should.

Paired with a Pioneer DEH-9500 & works flawlessly.

Support from manufacturer also excellent. Had some issues where it would not work intermittently during the first few days. Don't have the problem anymore, it's been more than 6 months!

October 6, 2012

I purchased a JVC KW-HDR81BT from SonicElectronix at a SUPER AWESOME price. I also got this steering wheel module because I was afraid of the lag from the PAC versions and I have to say im glad I decided on this one. It was super easy to install in my 2004 Mountaineer. I hooked up one wire to the AUX plug from the factory radio (not the radio plug the aftermarket radio connects to) I then hooked up one wire to the female 3.5mm jack supplied with this unit. Plugged the male 3.5mm in to it. Plugged the radio up then turned the key and this thing went thru a series of blinking then BAM it was done! No programming at all. I put my radio in the dash and walked away. There is NO lag at all. and you can also remap the buttons for other controls pretty easily.. I will highly recommend this thing to anyone who wants to keep their steering wheel controls. Oh and let me add this. I got it for CHEAP because of Sonics awesome price match program! SONIC YOU guys rock!

Installed on a 2012 Mazda 6 using a Sony XAV-601BT. Truly plug and play. Once the proper wires were hooked up (only two to the vehicle harness) all I had to do was power up the stereo, wait a few seconds and the controls worked as they should. Super pleased!

I have a 2007 Chevy Silverado LTZ and installed this unit with a Pioneer AVH-p4300DVD. I installed everything at the same time and it worked flawlessly the first time I powered it all up. All of my factory steering wheel controls work with every source of the new head unit, and it required zero programming on my part.
