Axxess ASWC Wiring help!

Hey, just purchased the axxess awsc steering wheel control interface for my afermarket HU. I've got an 04 325ci and can't figure out how to connect it to my wire harness.
I gave up and took it to an audio guy. He thought he figured it out but couldn't seem to program it.

I'd appreciate any help, thanks!

I am having the same issue I installed it and the controls work but I can't manually program the buttons our remap them when it auto programs to the car. Mad as can be because my push to talk is my att and my phone book does nothing...

I am having the same issue. The documentation on the website says to wire ground (black), accessory (red), and pin 7 (pink) However, pin 7 is illumination, is this correct?

Lurking for a few weeks; Just got a 2005 325it.

Also the same concern, just got an Axxess ASWC in the mail, not sure about the hookup on this...

I saw this DIY for the PAC unit, but I am not 100% sure how this translates to the Axxess:

If you guys make any headway be sure to post - I'll be attacking it myself in the coming weeks, I will also take hi-res photos.

Hi vcoke,

I completed my install but was unable to get this thing to work. I connected the pink wire on the Axxess ASCW to the wire that foes to Pin 7 of the factory stereo. I actually just t-tapped into it. I believe (don't quote me on this) the wire was white/purple.

Anyways, I tried to auto program it, and it would loop through its process and then at some point just start to crank up the volume on the head unit. It just kept going and going. I had to kill the power to the vehicle at that point or it would blow the speakers. I followed the instructions given on the site..not sure where I went wrong.

Good luck, please share your results.

Unfortunately I got distracted from this project, and then it got cold - So i've been putting everything off for quite some time. However, I'll be back in there to run the RCA back to the sub sometime soon.

I was waiting on a response from this thread (really interesting btw) regarding installation, but it went dead: http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/...6-touring.html

If you make any progress let us know.

Good Luck

I gave up on the device. Its still in the vehicle but not fully installed. Was just going to bring it somewhere when i had time or buy a better one. I know there is one from another company that is supposed to work well too.

The instructions ccaudio1 provided were the same ones I was using. I am going to do a new install in a few weeks and will try this unit one last time.

If I can not get it, I will probably just purchase the PAC unit.

Did you guys ever get this going? Mine supposedly programs properly, but it won't respond to S/W controls. Install has been verified though Axxess help line. They blamed the radio but I tried another radio and it wouldn't work either.
