You can get a PAC SWI-X steering wheel control interface thing if you get a HU with a remote. It learns the signal from the remote and taps into the steering wheel buttons. I had one and it worked great. I think several others here have them as well.

My car wasn't listed on that list of cars I saw that PAC offers it for. Does anybody know if this thing will work with a very small company head unit, for a 99 bonneville. 99 is not listed on there cars that it works for... but it says 93-2002 Pontiacs without heater controls... i thought all cars had heater controls lol

no, they mean heater controls on the steering wheel, which we dont have....

you're car is under that 93-02 w/o heater controls

i installed my pac swi-ps this afternoon, it'* very simple....i had to tap into 12V acc power, ground, and the green wire for signal from the steering wheel controls...plugged into my headunit, programmed the buttons, and works like a charm

i would think as long as you have the steering wheel controls and the signal line going to your headunit you should be able to try it.....

if you order from a place like crutchfield.com, they have a 30 day guarantee with free return shipping, so if it doesn't work, you just send the thing back and ur out no money
