2011 Sorento Steering Control Interface AXXESS ASWC

This question is answered

I installed my new head unit and the interface last night and can't get it (the steering controls) to work??  Has anyone successfully installed this on a Kia?  It says to "Connect the Green/Orange wire of the ASWC to pin 5 of the vehicle", I cut pin five from a harness that doesn't get reused. Also cut pin 6 to connect to ground, no luck???  Any ideas??

Verified Answer
  • Should be Pin 16 Power and Pin 17 GND on Connector C according to KiaTechInfo (that assumes the ASWC uses the SWC Remote input and Remote GND wires, but I can't think what else it would use ...):

  • If you bought from Crutchfield, you should contact their technical support also.

    Otherwise, you might want to contact Metra's technical support - latest info I can find is from 2006 and shows Pin 13 ...

    Hope This Helps!!!

  • The other thing you could do is check out a Kia forum and see if anyone there can help you. But if you bought from CF they will defiantly be able to help you out.

  • Now that BIG teddy mentioned it - http://www.kiatechinfo.com/ should have radio wiring harness info along with full shop manuals online for your Sorento.

    You have to register, but it is free and well worth it.

    Hope This Helps!!!

  • Any update on this? Did you solve the problem and if so, how?

    Anyone else have a suggestion?

  • That is the correct answer.....AXXESS has connector C flipped and the pin numbers all messed up!!

  • Thanks - shot an E-mail to Metra - hopefully they'll update the AXXESS documentation.

  • Metra replied back, but their info seems to be correct.  If I go here, it says the GND is C17 and the control is C16, which matches the manual, but since the connectors aren't labelled, that doesn't help much - however, there is a link to this, which does match although the pins are numbered differently.

    Perhaps you accidentally looked up the wrong vehicle?

    In any case, I'm glad you got it working again.
