    Steering wheel controls

    I read god of cpu's thread (Steering Wheel Controls)
    but the intructions in the readme file aren't very thorough to me.
    The link to the instructions is not working. Anybody have better, or more complete instructions on this?

    The original thread on g35driver with complete instructions can be found here:

    They updated the forum so the old link stopped working.

    God,
    How did these turn out? I have a 2005 Nissan Altima. Do you think one of your controllers would work for my car too? I have the same basic SWC's that you mentioned: Volume, Track, Mode. And, does the trip button stay separate so it still works?
    Thanks. If you have any left, or can build a new one I will test it out when I have the system going (by next summer hopefully )
    Spent so far: $1,755

    Theres not a lot to build. Read to the end of the g35 driver thread and you'll see so I never ordered parts or built anything. You just need use a couple of resistors and to spend some time wiring it up right.

    I would assume it would work with the 2005 altima, but can't say for sure. The cruise control buttons are separate from the stereo buttons on my g35.

    GOC...you said that you were planning on selling these connectors and instructions? Do you have any plans for other cars? In particular, 2004 Mazda 6? If so...hook me up. If not, do you know where I can maybe find info on this. I have "SEARCHED" this forum and found "IBUS CONNECTORS" for BMW's and such but nothing specific for the Mazda 6. Want to be able to control WINAMP or Media Car with the VOL +/- and Track +/-, and even if possible the "MUTE".

    Any info anybody can give is gratefully appreciated. Thanx...

    As I said before, theres really nothing to sell, you just need to find the right wires and add a couple resistors and diodes then hook them into your game port.

    The hard part is figuring out the right wires to hook up in your car, you can use the PAC SWI-X documentation to help with this.

    If you want something easier, just buy a PAC SWI-X and an infrared reciever for your serial port and program it for girder.

    with this SWI-X... do you have to buy a 50 dollar IR reciever, or can it be something like this....

    IR Stuff

    and let me get this straight... i could literally put these w/in 1 inch of each other under the dash or something and it would take my incoming signals and do whatever i want with it???

    that would be sweet

    i could even make a small enclosure and make sure they're facing each other inside of it, that way no light could interfere?
