Default Steering wheel control interface

hey guys, I want to get my steering wheel controls working again with the module from www.gpclub.com It says my H/U has to have a 38-40KHZ carrier signal, but nowhere in my specifications or anywhere else can I find if my radio uses this frequency or not. has anybody used http://www.clubgpstore.com/itemview.asp?itemid=16 for their steering wheel controls. also, does it work basically with all GM cars? Has anybody used one with a pioneer cd player?

The SWI-x (or whatever it is) is a completely customizable thing. You can use it on nearly any car with factory controls, and reciever with IR. You'll need a deck that supports IR, and has the IR remote.

That adapter will work fine, just make sure the radio you buy has a remote control that comes with it. That adapter works by receiving the signals from the steering wheel controls and then sending a command to your radio via IR...the same way a remote control communicates. So if you don't have a a radio with a remote control then the adapter won't work.

Yup, it came with a remote. Looks like I'll be getting this. Hopefully I can figure teh wiring out since I have no ideas where to tap into the factory wiring at.

I'm sure there have been people that have done this before....you could also see if Crutchfield has the unit in stock (www.crutchfield.com) and then you would get free support with the purchase....
