Default aftermarket HU

i know this had probably been posted too many times but here it goes..... I have an Alpine HU I bought and want to put it in, but I don't want to lose my steering wheel controls. My alpine doesnt have a remote so is there anything I can do?

thanks

your Alpine has to have a Remote for a PAC SWI-X to work...

the PAC takes the signal from the steering wheel controls and converts it into Signal that is transmitted thru the remote input
