Default Steering wheel controls??

Is ther a way to put in an aftermarket head and still utilize the steering wheel controls?? I've thoght about putting in a Monsoon from a junker but my local yard wants 275 clams for just the head. Any help would be appreciated.

i have asked a dealer and they told me that if the new deck has a hand held remote that it can then be wired to work with the wheel controls. but i dont know what the button will do and if they will all work.

You can buy a translator unit that can be programmed to do whatever you want. Takes the steering control inputs, and translates them to IR for the remote receiver. You MUST buy a head unit with IR remote.

Can you elaborate a little on this
What is IR?
Whats the process? or is this a job for the audio tecs only.

IR = Infra-Red (same thing your TV remote uses)
