(Willwren) did the adaptor not work? I think most of the cd players you buy now have the IR port on them, but was under the impression a IR port wasnt wasnt needed for the adaptor since you'd be using the controls on the wheel.
Push the button on the steering wheel, and a signal is sent to the SWI-X. It translates that electrical signal into an IR signal to control the HU. This means the IR emitter has to be at least a foot or two away from the HU, line of sight, no obstructions.
It was a PITA to set up, and operation was flaky at best. This was about a year and a half ago that I tried it in the Bonneville. I threw it in the trash, put the stock stereo in, and added an FM-modulated CD changer in the trunk. I'm a happy camper now.
