Question: Is there a way to wire steering wheel controls into any HU, or does the HU needs to be configured for it somehow? Supposing I could find either the stock volume controls that mount on the wheel, so some other kind, is it possible, or would I need a new HU.

When I read the title of this thread, I was thinking of something COMPLETLEY DIFFERENT.

And how does your SPI have steering wheel radio controls?

sorry if this was confusing! this could clear it up...



My SPI doesn't have radio controls on the steering wheel, (maybe steering column is a more appropriate term)....but if I were to get my hands on some, can they be wired to an aftermarket unit.

Thats cool, but my HU doesn't have a remote. The only other thing I could think of is using a standard potentiometer on the wires coming out of the HU. But I would have no idea how to control the potentiometer with the console switch. Hmmmmmm....

only real way will be to use one of the aftermarket adapters but need a remote. unless you use an SVT radio and do all the wiring.

Yeah, thats what my research seems to indicate. Oh well, thanks for weighing in.
