OOge said:Hi all,
I'm looking into buying an 02 TB LT, but it doesn't have steering wheel controls. I WANT steering wheel controls. Could I just replace an ebay steeringwheel with controls in the LT. And will it work.
the roadie said:1) The harness in the trucks without steering wheel controls won't have enough wires or connectors.
2) The clockspring assembly is very expensive that brings the steering wheel button signals to the harness, like another $100-$200 unless you get it from the junkyard
3) GM probably (can't say for sure because nobody's ever done this mod in my [long] memory) locked out the steering wheel button features from the radio and the HVAC controller so there's another $95 or so to spend at the dealer's for a reprogramming.
