So I've almost got my new stereo all wired up and ready to put into my 2014 Nissan Versa Note and all that I really have left is working on the steering wheel controls. There are a few things I'm stuck on with this part though:

1. The Axxess instructions say that the black, gray/red, and gray/blue wires need to plug into pins 15, 6, and 16 respectively. Do those pins need to be removed from the vehicle connector and connected to the ASWC-1 wires directly? I contacted Axxess about this and they suggested I connect the wires directly, but I thought I'd ask here in case someone's successfully found a way to do it without removing the pins/wires from the car harness.

2. In the case that I do have to connect them directly, they advised me against using a butt connector or even soldering and said to just do a military or lineman splice. Does this sound right to you guys? Using a splice alone without any solder seems kind of odd to me, though I'll admit I don't have experience with car electronics.

3. I'm having trouble understanding Axxess's Nissan Bluetooth Bypass Instructions, mainly steps 3 - 5. Also, it seems like the pins in my car are in 4 rows but the diagram in the instructions shows 2 rows.

Wish I could help. Those kits can be amazingly vague. You're likely going to have to pull a wiring diagram specific to your make/model/year/option package.

The "military or lineman" splice thing? Solder and heat shrink should always be the most reliable in this realm. Can skotchloks or the likes work? Absolutely.

I know where the wires go, I'm just trying to figure out how to properly connect them.

If I do solder them, I'm not sure how to go about that since I'd need to have my soldering iron in the car with nowhere to plug it in.

You can't get close enough to an electrical outlet to run an extension cord into the car for a soldering iron? All you need is about a 30watt iron. They make them cordless even.

Like said, there's all kinds of connectors available that can be just as reliable for interior applications where there's room.
