    ok I try your solution!
    thanks you.

    You should have 2 wires so you can complete the circuit, unless it is grounded somewhere. The electricity must flow from source to ground somehow or the values will not change. For example (5V-<500ohm>-X) X=5V, but (5V-<500ohm>-X-<500ohm>-Gnd) X = 2.5V

    excuse but I want to say:
    I have two cables that go to the sterring wheel.
    Only cable composed from two cables.
    A positive one and leads current to the resistors the other transmits the values!

    I have a doubt the values of the commands of the steering are read for +12v… the port game joystick has only +5.
    It is not that values +5 to the resistors of series give annoyance?

    I try with your solution!
    Thank you

    Your solution does not work!
    The gameport of the creatives sound blaster it sees the “joystick” but in the control panel, I cannot make the configuration,
    as soon as I press the keys does not recognize the joystick.

    That is not good. I guess your old way works better, but I don't see how. Maybe try resistors a little higher or lower to see which works better?

    Well I've just got my new car and had all the bits ready to put this in.. then I find out the headunit connects up by CANbus connector..
    I was hoping that the SWC would just be on their own wiring like my old car but I think they are all bundled into this canbus thing.
    Here is the pinout of the factory headunit which works with the SWC..
    Anyone know anything about this CANbus stuff.. can I still interface my carPC with the SWC?

    Maybe the PAC Audio SWI-CAN will do what you need.

    I did wonder if PAC did some sort of lead but when I looked they don't do anything covering my car I guess its because they are a US company.
    My car is a Vauxhall/Opel Astra H

    Ok, I've just had another thought..
    There are some companys here in the UK that make the SWC adaptors for my car to interface with Sony,Pioneer,Alpine headunits etc.. so the only problem is getting something to the PC.
    Now I'm guessing that these headunits may work on the varying resistance method seen as some of them only have a few wires.. so could I get one of those adaptors say an alpine one for example, then hookup the alpine signal onto the USB SWC Joystick adaptor?
    Not exactly the neatest way but as long as I get to keep my SWC

    So anyone got any thoughts on that, or know which stereo manufacturers (if any) would work with the joystick adaptor?

    Cheers

    I had pretty good sucess with using a universal IR reciever on the PC and a PAC SWI-X that output a IR signal. You might need to give PAC a call about your particular car.
