Unfortunately to keep the steering controls I believe you have to buy a unit that links them to the non OEM head unit. I did this and they work just as they did with the factory radio. It was like $50 which sucks but its definitely worth it.

Hope this help, or at least points you in the right direction.

Thank you for the info. Losing the steering controls isn't anything Im worried about.

When I go to crutchfield and enter my vehicle info, the only wiring harness adapter that comes up is this:
Code:

Which seems to be missing the adapter for the third plug. I entered my vehicle as 2003 ZX5 without Blaupunkt with Factory subwoofer. Is there something else I should be looking for?
