2007 Silverado Steering Wheel-Mounted Audio Controls

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Do you know if it is possible to add steering wheel-mounted audio controls to the new body style 2007 Chevy Silverado without the convenience package because I am looking at at truck that doesn't have it equipped. This doesn't bother me other than the fact it doesn't have steering wheel audio controls. If I happened to get my hands on the audio control module that goes onto the side of the steering wheel, can I just plug it in? Sometime on these sorts of things the wiring is all in place, they just don't give you the actual module without the proper package. Is this the case with steering wheel-mounted audio controls? I am looking at a LT1 Crew Cab if that helps.

Welcome to CandG Sir,

As far as my understanding goes, you may have to replace the steering wheel with no radio controls to that with one with radio controls along with some wiring alterations.

Personally it is much of a hassle, and looking at the price of the steering wheel, labor cost, it may end up being pricey, unless you have a Hayes manual and can do the wiring by yourself. I think the convenience package only costs $895. I wonder how much the new steering wheel is for.

I hope that was helpful.

Did you happen to ask the dealer how much it would be? You should also make sure it doesn't void any warranty to do that. I did a quick search on ebay and came up with this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2007-CHEVRO...sspagenameZWDVW

Perhaps they would know?

From the sound of it I would have to replace the steering wheel and maybe do some modifications myself, which would be very costly and time consuming. I guess I would be better off equipping the truck with the convienence package. Thanks for your quick responses!
