View Full Version : Are we "prewired"?

Saw someone on ebay selling a wheel for a GA with stereo controls and was wondering if it'd be a simple swap ('cept for the damn airbag, i know)? I don't have controls now and would like them...

Nope. You have to buy an SIR coil that includes the steering wheel controls. Then the harness that goes from the lower-left I/P to the radio.

On top of all that you have to get under your dash and route everything where it needs to go. Its not that hard, but will take you a few hours to do everything. SIR coils on N-bodies are a PITA to change.

You have to remove the cluster trim, unbolt part of the dash and fish a connector that's a half-inch square through a space where you cannot fit a finger.

Have fun. =)

i was always curious about the steering whell controls as to whether they are not useable when you get an aftermarket stereo installed . or are they with alot of work.
