I am upgrading the audio system in my 2016 Silverado LS that came with the 7" IOB infotainment system that does not have steering wheel control capability nor a CD player both of which I would like to have. I checked with Chevrolet about upgrading and was told I would need to get the 8" screen, change the steering wheel, change the bcm, add a harness and have it programmed at a cost of around $1500.00 but the crazy thing is they also said they could not guarantee it would work! I definitely wasn't going to take that chance so I decided to just replace the headunit with a Pioneer double din to get CD/DVD as well as a few other nice features along with an idatalink Maestro so I can keep all of my factory functions. I knew this headunit could be controlled by factory steering wheel controls via an add on adapter which got me thinking so I looked up the instructions for the AXXESS ASWC-1 adapter and found it only needs power/ground and one connection into the harness under the steering column. After a little googling my understanding is the factory steering wheel button sends a signal to the computer which determines what function to do based on the different resistance of the particular button pushed and that's the reason only 1 wire output is needed. Now I am no electrical wizard for sure but it appears that if I change the steering wheel to one with the controls and add the necessary harness the buttons should be able to control the aftermarket headunit using the adapter since it would be doing what the computer would be doing with the factory headunit which is just reading the resistance of the button that is pushed. This almost seems too easy especially since I have found nothing is easy to upgrade in these trucks so hopefully one of you electrical wizard can confirm this will work or let me know why it won't. Thanks in advance!
Yes, you did indeed read that correctly. You can now have all of the proper steering wheel controls inside of Car Play / Android Auto without having to physically upgrade your cluster. This service will still require you to ship your cluster in (and of course we will turn them as fast as humanly possible) or you may choose to source a used one as these are plentiful and honestly pretty cheap! Just make sure you get with us prior to purchasing a used unit to make sure everything matches as it should as there are many different types and combos such as red/blueish green lighting, Z71, All Terrain etc https://www.whiteautoandmedia.com/product/udd-color-cluster-upgrade/ Big thanks for the push from our dealer network and fantastic customers like you guys!
I replaced the Bose OEM radio deck (Delphi) with aftermarket D-Din deck (Pyle PLDNV695). I wired it all without all pricey harness adapters. Everything works great the way it is wired now but, I was not able to find the wiring schematic to wire the stock steering wheel audio controls to the at aftermarket DDin which has the hook ups for it and can also program it. Please help!! P.s.: I have already had extreme success with adding aftermarket amp and sub, wiring aftermarket D-Din radio (using the Bose stock speakers), and bypassing Bose amp with no harness adapters for under 30$. If anyone has any questions about any of those topics I'd be happy to help so you don't have go through all the research I had to do. I'll save you a hellish headache!
Hi i have a 2009 Silverado 1LT ext cab. i add steering wheel controls to my truck(i purchased a brand new right button assembly and the harness that runs behind the air bag from cruise to stereo control assembly. after adding them my cruise control started acting funny(i had to tap the brakes several times to get the cruise to engage, and also the misc ignition fuse under the hood would pop imediately after putting a new one in? can someone tell me what went wrong?
