    I used one for my car PC. I just connected the a connection to my car's steering wheel controls and plugged into the USB port.

    After that I just calibrated all the buttons and assigned them to functions.

    It depends on the car, but generally, you just connect it in parallel with one of the steering wheel buttons. Steering wheel buttons are usually a resistor ladder where each button has a different resistance value. connect the black and white wires from one of the joycon cables parallel with your steering wheel buttons, regardless of wire color, and plug into channel A, then run the joycon utility to program the buttons.

    Some cars like mine have an interface box that provides steering wheel button output and I connect channel A there.

    Here's how my buttons are, on the harness, each pin is one button and the resistance is the same for each button, from what I've read that is digital? Anyway, the white wire is played into one of the pins and the black wire is on a chassis ground. When plugged in to the USB the joycon explorer I don't think it is recognized? Is there a way to tell it's connected to the explorer? If you need any details on my setup and howling wiring I can clarify. I REALLY want to get this to work, I'm tired of not having my volume controls on my left thumb.

    If you can't find the wires, reading where a PAC SWI connects on their site will help you find the wires you need.
