SELECTING SYNC/RSE/SAT/DVD/AUX:
With the ignition on, and the aftermarket radio on (Make sure radio is in AUX mode):
(NOTE: Not all vehicles have all sources factory equipped)
Press and hold the Media button on the steering wheel for 2 seconds. This will switch
to the next available sources in your vehicle. Each time the media button is press
for 2 seconds the source will change. The sequence of sources are, SYNC→R.S.E.
(rear seat entertainment) →, Satellite radio, AUX, DVD. Pressing the media button
for 2 seconds again will take you back to SYNC. To temporarily disable SYNC/
RSE/SAT/DVD/AUX, press and hold the media button for 3 seconds. To turn it
back on press the voice button or press media for 2 seconds. There will be a visual
confirmation of what source you are in from the provided LCD screen. This screen
will also provide satellite and SYNC information.

PROGRAMMING THE SWC
After all connections are made, turn ignition on and wait fifteen seconds. After that
time period test SWC functions.
REMAPPING THE SWC BUTTONS
Let’s say you have the FRST programmed to your vehicle and your radio and you
want to change the button assignment for the steering wheel controls. For instance
you would like Seek Up to be Mute.
This process is the same as manually programming the FRST (please refer to the
Manual Programming section) with a couple of notes:
•
•
•
•
The FRST must have detected the vehicle and radio it is attached to before you
can remap any buttons.
You can only start the remapping of the steering wheel controls process within
the first 20 seconds of turning the ignition key on. If you wait longer then the 20
seconds you will have to turn the ignition off then back on again.
Within the first 20 seconds if any button other then Volume Up or Volume Down
is pushed, the remapping process will stop.
If during the remapping process no button is pushed for 30 seconds the
remapping process is aborted and the original settings are reset.
SO LET’S BEGIN THE REMAPPING PROCESS:
1. Ideally having the FRST visible is recommended since you can see the led
flashes to confirm button recognition.
2. Turning off the radio is recommended
3. Within the first 20 seconds of turning the ignition on, press and hold down the
Volume Up button for at least 25 seconds.
7
4. The led will light up solid red. Release Volume Up and the led will go out. Volume
Up has now been programmed.
5. Follow the list below in order however pushing the steering wheel control button
you want for the function below. If you want to skip a command press the
Volume Up on the steering wheel, this will tell the FRST to skip the command
and go to the next one.
1. Volume Up
2. Volume Down
3. Seek Up/Next
4. Seek Down/Prev
5. Source/Mode
6. Mute
7. Preset Up
8. Preset Down
9. Power
10. Band
11. Play/Enter
12. PTT (Push To Talk)
13. On Hook
14. Off Hook
15. Fan Up
16. Fan Down
17. Temp Up
18. Temp Down
* Note: Remember not all radios will have all these commands. Please refer to the
radios’ owners manual for specific commands recognized by the radio.
For instance the next command to be mapped is the Volume Down command.
Let’s say you want the Mode button on your steering wheel to be the Volume Down
8
command. Hold down the Mode button till the led lights up solid red, and then
release it. Now your Mode button on the steering wheel is Volume Down.
6. After the last button is programmed on your steering wheel (you do not have to
go through the whole list), hold down the Volume Up button for at least 10
seconds then the led will go out.
Or
After the 18th button is programmed or skipped the led will go out and the remapping
is completed.
RESETTING OR FORCING AUTO LEARN ON THE SWC
If for any reason after remapping the steering wheel controls you want to go back to
the Original steering wheel control settings, follow these steps:
•
•
•
•
After 30 seconds of turning the ignition on, press and hold the original Volume up
button for at least 30 seconds
The led will blink rapidly
Release the Volume Up button and wait until the led goes on solid
After the led goes off the original steering wheel control settings will be restored
IF FOR ANY REASON AFTER REMAPPING THE STEERING WHEEL CONTROLS
YOU WANT TO GO BACK TO THE ORIGINAL STEERING WHEEL CONTROL
SETTINGS, FOLLOW THESE STEPS:
1. Within the first 20 seconds of turning the ignition on. Press and hold down the
original Volume Up button for at least 25 seconds.
2. The led will blink rapidly
3. Release the Volume Up button and wait until the led goes on solid.
4. After the led goes off the original steering wheel control settings will be restored.
