Great write up.

I had a 2012 Express and wanted to add the radio controls but for those years it requires adding sales code RDZ to the vehicles config. The dealer could not add it because it's not a option for my vin. I'm glad things changed in 2013 so now I can add the parts to my 2014 Express plus a leather wheel. This is a mod you will feel every time you drive.

I wish I had done it sooner, I've gotten in the habit of using the radio dials and I forget about the switches I installed.

Sounds like the one I have. 5" touchscreen. That's the Uconnect 5.0.
Definitely works with that one.

Yes it works great! I have the Uconnect 5.0 in my 14 Express and
upgraded to the leather steering wheel and the radio switches. It's totally plug and play.

Where'd you source your leather steering wheel?

I plan on adding the SWC to my 2014 Tradesman. I will have to use the Axxess ASWC-1 adapter with my aftermarket stereo. One question I have is where does the wiring harness from the steering wheel connect? I took a quick look under the dash and the wiring harness from the steering wheel goes into a larger bundle that is wrapped with black cloth tape. There is a connection that is covered with a grey foam padding coming off the larger bundle.

A photo of where the harness connects would save me some time unwrapping the bundles of harnesses. This tutorial is great, I'm just trying to save a little time on my install.

Thanks in advance.

The wiring for the audio/uconnect/cruise/gear selector all connect to the same harness. I didn't check to see where it went but I thought the Axxess ASWC-1 adapter was installed at the radio wiring harness not the one coming off the steering wheel.
