              Or you can buy a cheap USB keypad, open it up and rewire it to your exsisting controls. I assume your using a front end? If so, most will allow you to use hot keys, you simply map the keypad to those. Its a very cheap solution, but takes so modding.

              PS: no one is ignoring you, it just takes time for us to answer since we are not on here 24/7.

                  LOL, during this part of the year the forums usually slow down. It also depends on the topic you are bringing up. If its something that has been covered alot, theyu will ignore because it will seem like your being lazy and not using search. It could also be that people dont know a solution or just are not interested in answering. Ive had it happen to me alot, especially when it comes to the strange ideas I have which require hugeeeeeeeeee modding of my car.

                  Anyways, I think the USB keypad would be a cheap and easy way. Once you take it appart the controller for the keypad is very small, id say about the size of 3 quarters side by side and as thin as a quarter. I am actually doing the same project, but my steering wheel didnt come with controls so I am making mine into my driver side arm rest.

                      I'm trying to sort out the same thing on my VW.
                      I've pretty much determined I'm going to have to do the keyboard-rewiring method too unless I can find something that connects to the CAN BUS and simulates key presses on a keyboard (yeah right).

                        I think there is such a device, i'll try to find it for you...... Thing is, with the software it has to emulate a key press, so basically its like having a middle man which to me can lead to problems. With the keypad your just modifing the button.

                          ^ a keypad doesnt work if its controlled by voltage, not separate wires. since a controller has joysticks, it can be done. not sure how his controls work though.

                            jeez, we don't work for you.
                            If we reply, be thankful. If we don't, that's not our fault.

                            I personally would use pic if the steering wheel is resistive type. Although it's not anywhere near instant solution.
