Anyone had any luck with steering wheel controls on a aftermarket radio?
Absolutely. This has come up a number of times and the fix is relatively simple (! LoL)... you just need to clean the switches in the steering wheel.On a side note, my steering wheel controls for the information display (changing from Oil Life to Coolant Temp, to Boost, etc.) do not always work correctly.
Sometimes the INFO button changes what information is displayed and sometimes the RETURN button changes it. Yes, it sometimes changes between key cycles for no discernible reason. I'm afraid it must be a computer issue because I don't see how a wiring issue could cause it.
Awwww, ****.Absolutely. This has come up a number of times and the fix is relatively simple (! LoL)... you just need to clean the switches in the steering wheel.
These switches are the rubber membrane across PCB contact type - just like the ones in your remote. The difference is that they connect different resistances across a resistor 'ladder', the BCM measures the resistance and performs the function (it thinks) you requested. If the contacts get dirty, the resistance changes and the BCM does something different - or nothing at all.
So, to fix:
- remove the airbag
