Default Steering wheel controls

I found at work a control mod. for the steering wheel with a dimmer button in the center. Is this a rare factory option? I have only seen two of these in the four plus years at work. I did buy it and plan on installing soon to see if it does indeed work with my car.

Look above the box your typing in. The second box from the right looks like a mountain, click on that. Then enter the URL for that image and click OK. That will put the image in the message.

I've seen them with dimmer. It'* not uncommon, some of the GP'* had a different button there. I think it really depends on what you want for buttons. Nice find though

UPDATE: This control module did work for everything the first one had such as radio and heater but the dimmer button does nothing. Back to the drawing board. Next step is to pull the headlight control from dash on the car I got this control module from. Anyone have any idea why this dimmer button does not work?
