Default Steering Wheel Buttons

I know that there is a way to make the buttons work if your aftermarket player came with a remote. I was wondering if there is anything out there that will make the buttons work if the aftermarket player does not have a remote? I have a brand new Pioneer CD player I would really like to use but its doesnt have a remote and I dont want to give up all my fun buttons

Thanks for the help,

Jason

Sadly, no. But life goes on. I guess I will buy a new HU. Does anyone know of one that may have red lights to match the pontiac interior? I know I am nuts but I like things to match, LOL.

Depends on the model of kenwood, my excelon has red buttons but the display is multicolored, mostly blues...
the MP or whatever have red displays, to my recollection. My friend owns one...real nice.
