This is the installation of the Axxess ASWC-1 aftermarket steering wheel controls on my Pioneer Headunit in my 2004 Nissan Maxima. I did this write up to document my installation and hopefully help some forum members clarify the installation process.

The ASWC-1 adapter from Axxess allows you to connect your vehicle’s steering wheel controls to almost any brand of aftermarket stereo, including Alpine, Clarion, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer, Sony, and more. (Note: your new stereo must have a 3.5mm steering wheel control or wired remote control input.)

Additional Written Instructions & Photos:

  1. First you will need to find the 16-pin harness plug behind your radio console. Reference photo below.
  2. Connect the Black wire of the ASWC to ground. You may use the same grounding
    point as the aftermarket radio.
  3. Connect the Red wire of the ASWC to a 12 volt accessory wire, one that turns on and
    off with the ignition key.
  4. Connect the Gray/Red wire of the ASWC to pin 3 of the vehicle.
  5. Connect the White/Green wire of the ASWC to pin 10 of the vehicle.
  6. Connect pin 2 of the vehicle harness to Ground.
  7. All other wires on the ASWC please tape up, they will not be used.
