    Steering Wheel Control

    I've but haven't found a useful thread regarding how to make the factory steering wheel audio controls buttons functional, when a resistor network is used. I don't want to use the IR solution, but need something that can make these different voltages into simple keystrokes. Is it doable?

    welcome to the foums. you should find it if you searcha bit more because i have asked the same.
    you need an analogue input board, and connect that to the resistor network, you can then set diff voltages for each action.

    just looked at your thread (Corsa ....), but swix solution is IR. The gamepad solution is not possible because these buttons aren't seperate. It is just 2 wires, when buttons are pushed:
    Vol - 54 Ohm
    Vol + 147 Ohm
    Mode 1036 Ohm
    Mute 2007 Ohm
    Preset 562 Ohm
    ^ 300 Ohm
    No buttons pushed 5kohm

    I'm sorry if I didn't understand you correctly.
