Thanks to bperry0118, I'm almost there with my install. The remaining items are:
-Getting the hang up and call buttons working with my head unit. I was able to manually program the other buttons on the AWSC-1 but those two were still not recognized. I will try again after I get ahold of a windows PC to update the firmware.
-Getting the reverse camera working correctly. I thought it was, because it turns on when I put it in reverse, and turned back off when I put it back in park, but my wife said the camera stayed on when she put it in drive. Unfortunately I finished it this morning right before she had to leave for work, so I sent her on her way, thinking it was all good
-The airbag indicator on the instrument panel was on, so I have to figure that one out.
A full wiring diagram with color coding would be awesome and make this 100 times easier.
Other than that, it sounds good, and I think everything else works. What little I played with CarPlay made me a tad jealous.
Does anyone know what the wires marked as "M-CAN" (high and low) are for? These are connected to the back of the climate control panel in the nav system, but not on the climate control panel that has the small red screen.
Here is what I bought:
Kenwood DDX9702S head unit (good reviews for a CarPlay unit)
used automatic climate control panel off eBay
There were some oddities that I learned between the help from bperry0118 and tech support from Metra that I thought I'd share:
The wiring from the original climate control/audio control panel was different from the used one I bought on ebay. The replacement had an extra teal ground wire that I just tied into one of the others, and the original had a gray/black and brown/black that the replacement did not have (labeled M-CAN high and low) that I just taped off.
Other than that, it all matched up (though in different order on the plug). I just cut and spliced them one at a time, and everything worked fine.
The instructions for the HYBL-04 said to connect the green purple wire to the reverse wire of the head unit. My green/purple did NOT have any voltage when I put the car in reverse, so instead I spliced #9 on connector A (18 pin) which did have 12V when I put the car in reverse. This worked to turn on the camera when put into reverse.
AX-CAM6V connects to the blue/white wire to the red 12V, ground to #4 connector A and blue-red spliced into #11 connector A
an old RCA cable was cut and spliced to #2 (+) and #3 (-) on connector A
On the ASWC-1, use the wire that came with the HYBL-04, not the one that came with this.
I could NOT get the ASWC-1 to recognize the bluetooth steering wheel controls for call/hang up, so I contacted Metra. Turns out, to get that to work, you have to cut the green/orange wire between the factory harness and the HYBL-04 unit and tape it off (don't cut it AT the harness, because it splits into two). After that, auto program picked up all the controls correctly including the call/hang up buttons! (you do have to do an extra step for the bluetooth buttons as outlined in the full manual)
For the factory microphone, I cut the 3.5mm cable of the mic that came with the head unit, and spliced into #10 (+) and #22 (-). One thing I had to do, which I had remembered from a project I did a long time ago, was burn off the invisible coating from the individual strands of copper inside the mic wire. Just spread them out, hold a lighter under it and they catch fire for a second and then blow out. That would have driven me insane if it hadn't already done so on that previous project.
I think that's it. If I think of anything else, I will update this post.
I did not cut and splice the existing gps cable, usb cable or sirius cable, so I can't answer what or how to do those.
After all is said and done, everything works, and to me the sound is fine, though a little low (I didn't adjust the HYBL-04 before putting everything back together, so I may take it all apart one day to give it more volume). I'm not an audio nut. Obviously, if that's you, you'll probably want to just replace the amp and speakers anyway.
Again, MAJOR thanks to bperry0118, who probably got annoyed by my questions, and the tech support at Metra, who responded next day to my questions.
and again, the only problem is my airbag light is on now. I have to take it to the dealership to get that checked/reset
btw, is it possible to get an admin to edit the title of the thread? I'd like this thread to be marked as solved if possible

Renamed for you boss, glad you got it working
So I didn't notice until a couple weeks ago when it actually got warm, but I have no AC in the car and air only blows out the windshield vents no matter which setting I have it on.
I'd pay someone at this point to get this fixed but a local stereo shop didn't want to touch it (which is why I tried to do this all myself).
I'm guessing it's got something to do with the two wires that didn't match up with the climate control panel connector.
