Product Description

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. 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!

Customer Reviews

Easy to install instructions.
Mo
Highly recommended to anyone who is intalling an aftermarket head unit in cars that have steering wheel controls for the stereo.
Baz
I called the manufacturers tech support and they were rude and not helpful.

I don't know why you would buy the alternative. I ripped out my PAC SWI jack because it wouldn't work right. Connected the simple three wires on this unit, turned on the ignition, and the unit programmed itself in about 30 seconds. And it works great! I have all my buttons working on my Chevy truck steering wheel. When I had the PAC SWI Jack installed, it took the installer quite a while to program it, and then I lost two of my steering wheel buttons because he said it just wont work. Now I have everything and it only took me about ten minutes to install the whole thing. And I have never done this before. The website instructions were perfect and easy.

Initially had the SWI PAC installed. Response delay to button press with SWI PAC was irritating. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. AXXESS ASWC has much faster response. Auto detect function worked as described. Easy install.

Metra's ASWC adapter is easy to install (just connect one wire, ground a second, and solder one or two more), conveniently programs itself automatically, and even lets you remap the buttons manually if you feel like it. It mostly works as advertised, restoring use of the steering wheel buttons that would otherwise become sitting blanks after a stereo upgrade. And according to most user reviews out there, this is the first product on the market that does it right, and reliably.

But one slip of logic made it through the design process. You know those arrow buttons on your steering wheel? Well, Metra gives you the choice of making those buttons work as 1. a combination of STATION SEEK (in radio mode) and TRACK CHANGE (when playing CDs) or 2. a combination of PRESET CHANGE (radio) and FOLDER CHANGE (CDs). Most people prefer the arrow buttons to work as PRESET CHANGE and TRACK CHANGE (which is how they always come from the factory), but that combo's a no-go, at least with Pioneer stereos. As a result, those of us who listen to radio and CDs equally can only use our steering wheel buttons about half the time. Sigh.

More annoyances: the volume button now ignores the first press of your finger -- SOMETIMES (it's not consistent). Also, Metra could have done a better job writing instructions, and placing the vehicle-specific wiring info where people can actually find it instead of burying it in some obscure nether-region of their website. Finally, they could have issued a courtesy warning that for this device to work, your stereo needs a 3.5mm jack in the back -- something usually only found on higher-end models (over $160 in Pioneer's case).

2013 update: just 2.X years later, this device is already malfunctioning -- pressing the volume button now sometimes changes the radio frequency. This product sucks.

When I first installed the harness in my car it worked flawlessly for ten seconds and then any button I would click it would go haywire and act like i was clicking that button over and over rapidly. I contacted customer service (which takes a few days/weeks to respond between emails) and they asked me the basics about wiring and model number to check the firmware. After confirming everything I had was right they said it was probably just a faulty product and that I should return it to where I purchased. This was took over 3 months for the complete conversation to take place, the return window after buying from amazon is apparently 1 month. Metra however has a 1 year manufacturers warranty as posted in the description for the product, however in order to return the for a replacement you have to email amazon and get a rep to send you one.

I changed this from a one star to a four, why? Because Amazon being the the company they are responded to my email to them with a shipping confirmation of a replacement and an email apologizing for the inconvenience. I got the replacement in the mail a few days later and when I replaced the one I had it worked flawlessly.

Moral of the story is, if you buy this product and have ANY problems with it, contact Amazon and don't waist your time with Metra.

Bought this for my 2003 Yukon XL Denali to go with the Axxess GMOS-04 Class II OnStar® Interface for Amplified Systems to install my Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD 7" In-Dash Double-DIN DVD AV Receiver with iPod/iPhone Control, Pandora.

The end result is this thing works well and I'm very happy with it. There is a beep every time you hit a button that is annoying and I can't seem to get it to go away. And I thought the directions could be a little more explanatory, hence the four stars. Othewise it does exactly what it's supposed to do.

Installation was a bit challenging. Coupled with a newer version of a Metra wiring harness, you should be able to discard the plug this unit comes with and simply plug it right into the plug already installed on the harness. However, the directions for both units completely left this fact out! So I noticed the extra and identical plug on my harness, followed the wires and compared to the directions, and determined it was in fact there for that purpose. Very convenient, but a little heads up would be nice!

The other issue I had was with the programming. I thought I was following the instructions to the letter, but it somehow would not auto-detect my stereo. It turns out the directions want you to hit volume up continuously and wait for the light to blink (or stop blinking, can't remember). I interpreted that as holding down the volume up. It turns out you need to repeatedly press volume up, not hold it down. Once I figured that out it auto-detected and I was in business.

One last note.
