    And if you want to use your radio and JoyCon use Oeswc 07-Up Norton Internet Security Harness for RF/ST? Dont mean to thread jack but I have a Joycon and would like to control the Carputer with steering controls and the keep the contols of the radio as well.

    Your Radio wiring harness for your car has a male conn that goes in a female connector in the radio, this has the connections for the steering wheel controls.
    The Metra OESWC-7552H (SWC in part number stands for steeting wheel controls) has a female connector that connects to the car Radio male connector in the wiring harness. This female connector is the connector you connect the RcJoyCon to, and you then connect this female connector to the male connector on the car radio wiring harness.

    The OESWC-772H is between $10.00 to $20.00, and saves you from cutting into your radio wiring harness to splice the wires to the RcJoycon to, or trying to connect individual pins from the RcJoyCon to the mail connector.

    The OESWC-7552H just makes it professional, easy to connect and disconnect and allows you to reconnect your radio if you remove your computer, your problem if you don't use it, your choice.

    Or you can get a wiring harness from crutchfield that will have all the connections you need. For example factory speakers.

    using same Steering wheel controls for both computer and OEM Radio

    Since the RcJoyCon sends hotkeys to the CarPC, you would have an application that would control a relay board using hotkeys, resistors connected to ground would be connected to the relay and would make a connection to the steering wheel control pins in the Car OEM Radio. If you route the Car OEM radio output audio into the CarPC aux port, and then route the CarPC sound through the car amplifier, the CarPC sound control would control the sound of the OEM radio. When you wanted to change the channel, mode etc. on the car radio, you would switch your front end to the application that controls the relays that send the resistance signal to the steering wheel controls on the OEM radio/Stereo.
    I'm not keeping my OEM radio/stereo in my car, so I haven't tryed the above, maybe other's may have more knowledge or may know of an application and relay board you can use.

    According to the Altima's wiring diagram it says Switch Wire A is White/Gray, Switch Wire B is Grey/Blue, and the Ground wire is Blue/Black..

    From what I see in the JoyCon's pictures and the manual it only shows 2 wires coming from the JoyCon (White = Data and Black = Ground)..

    I see how your saying to connect it but the manual doesn't say that.. Can you confirm please?

    Thanks

    Short of manually testing what both wires from the OEM do, I'd like to know what they both do.
    Most radios just use two wires, a data and ground wire.
    Im not sure why ur setup has two data wires
