I was looking at a 1999 Grand Am steering wheel that has both cruise control and radio controls on it. My question is: can I use it on my 2000 Grand Am GT that has only cruise control on the wheel?

Are there any plugs on my factory radio to connect to this and would the harness be in the car allready or would I need a harness to run from the radio to the steering wheel?

Thanks...........

Do a search, there are a few threads on this topic. All I remember is that it is not a simple plug and play swap.

The only way you could get the radio controls on the steering wheel was if you ordered the GT1 option package. The GT1's and GT's used the same radio though so I believe the radio should have the plugs on the back to work with the remote switches. The '99 and '00 used the same radio's too before they switched to the monsoon in '01. All you should need is the steering wheel with the radio controls in it, and the harness behind it. That includes the SIR coil which the wires go thru so that the wheel will spin. Some of the wires on it are the same as your stock one so you will have to do some cutting and splicing, and run new wires over to the radio. I recommend getting a factory manual for this so you know what all the wires are.

i would think a haynes service manual and our buddies at gmpartsdirect are about all you'd need, plus the splicing mentioned above me.

I asked a tech that was working on my old car about the controls. He said The Steering Column would have to be dropped.
