Not sure if this adapter has been mentioned before and if so I had missed it. PAC makes an adapter to bypass the Bluetooth module when installing an aftermarket head unit with its own built in Bluetooth . I installed a car-joying unit and all my steering wheel controls worked except for the two button for send and hangup a call. Once I used this I was able to map out all the buttons.

I purchased it through Volunteer Audio: PAC ? BT-SWC-NI1 ? Volunteer Audio

Just want to clarify that I understand the need for this because I plan to install an aftermarket BT stereo next year.
If I'm reading this right, removing the factory stereo does NOT remove the factory bluetooth module, and so to use the steering wheel phone controls you need this because the factory steering wheel controls won't actually reach the aftermarket stereo? am I understanding this correctly?

Correct, the Frontiers Bluetooth is a separate module and with my 2014 it was located under the front passengers seat. What this adapter does is connects the wires from the steering wheel controls to the wiring going to the harness at the HU instead of having to cut and splice wiring yourself.

Then depending on the HU whether it can assign the steering wheel controls or not you may need the Axxess ASWC-1 - Steering Wheel Control Adapter. The Car-joying HU I purchased was able to do this so I did not have to add that adapter.

I know this question sounds dumb, but I am baffled at this point and maybe someone else had the same issue. I have a 2015 Frontier SV. Has Bluetooth steering wheel controls. Trying to install the bluetooth adapter. Everywhere I looked, the Bluetooth control module should be underneath my front passanger seat. It is not there. I only see wiring for the seat heater, airbag sensor, but no Bluetooth module. Is there another location for this? I can't find it anywhere.
