Do you want to keep things factory? Or are you looking for an aftermarket HU that will work with the steering wheel controls?

My nephew had the same problem with his 01 GTP. All the problem was that the little pins behind the buttons themselves had broken off. All we had to do was to take the buttons out and glue in pieces of toothpicks. I know it sounds funny but, it works! And has for 2 years now. The buttons arent hard to pull out and toothpicks are a dime a dozen. All you really need is some wood glue and some patience. Good luck!

look into this thread for a complete list of how to use toothpicks to save your butt(ons) hehe

it also continues to a site for aftermarket headunits converters for the buttons after you fix them enjoy and good luck
