Auto-Detect Interface Control Box

The Axxess Auto-Dectect System is the revolutionary new way to install aftermarket radios in vehicles that require a data interface (LAN or CANBUS). Each interface auto detects the vehicle it is in and automatically configures itself to work perfectly with that vehicle. Then just plug-in one of Axxesses new harnesses and you're done. It's that easy.

The Axxess AX-ADBOX1 comes with the ASWC steering wheel control harness and allows for a direct plug-and-play with no wire splicing needed for the Axxess ASWC Module (ASWC module required and Sold Separately). The ADBOX1 also retains features like: Onstar/OE Bluetooth (GM), SYNC in Non-NAV Ford, Blind Spot Detection Systems in select Chrysler /Dodge/Jeep and NAV Outputs (Parking Brake Reverse Mute And V.S.S.). It can also be used in amplified or non-amplified systems.

To make life simple the ADBOX1 is also Micro-B USB Updatable for all applications. Now there's no need to buy the newest and greatest interface every time you upgrade your stereo.

Need it for truck
Vincent W on Nov 13, 2016
It is what is needed
Marcelo L on Aug 9, 2014

Two questions:

1.) I have a 2006 Lexus IS350 (Without navigation factory navigation, and without the Mark Levinson option). I'm aware the the board for the factory CD changer (head unit) needs to be retained in the system to keep the HVAC functional. This issue aside, If I install an aftermarket head unit, will the AX-ADBOX1 (or AX-ADBOX2) provide the proper interface between the factory digital Pioneer amp and the new head unit? Assuming the answer is yes; which unit do I need (1 or 2)?

2.) In order to retain the use of my factory steering wheel controls; do I need to also purchase an ASWC-1, or is this function handled by the ADBOX(1/2)?

Thank you, looking forward to your response!

Best Answer: Hello Greg,

1) Removing the OEM headunit in that vehicle is HIGHLY discouraged. As such, there Isn't a 'vehicle specific' harness for that vehicle. The AX-ADBOX1 is HALF of a "harness" and is Technically an "interface". It still requires an actual harness to mate It to the vehicle, which there is no such harness.
Generally speaking, if there was and you wished to retain fade control, then it would be advised to use the AX-ADBOX1. We suggest speaking to Technical Support for confirmation:
tel: 800.253.TECH (8324)

2) ASWC-1 would be needed IF 1 wasn't the main issue here.

Do I need to install axes-adbox1 in a 2007 jeep grand Cherokee?
Jeremy S on Dec 17, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Jeremy,

Unlikely, as a typical '07 Jeep Grand Cherokee will ask for the Axxess XSVI-6502-NAV to install an aftermarket headunit. The ADBOX , on the other hand, is meant for less common "higher level trims", which often incorporate a Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep AMPLIFIED system. For THAT , however, you are meant to go with the Axxess CHTO-01 , which will have the "box" and the associated connections for your vehicle.
