    Questions about Steering Wheel Controls

    Hi there

    Two questions about the steering wheel controls on a 2006 STS.
    1. For reasons Iíll spare you, I really want my right steering wheel button to move the radio to the next preset, not seek the next station. Is this done by reprogramming (dealer/me?), or by changing to a switch of a used steering wheel with the ď1-6Ē? I assume Iíll still be able to go to next or previous song on CDs?
    2. One bulb is out on the far left control switch, I have the bulbs I think, but how do you get the switch out, and the the bulb? Any advice/youtube?

    Thanks.

    No on 07s it will change the disc not cycle track back.

    It's not the switch I can assure you of that. Not sure if the programming is in the radio or ipm

    So on a 07, how do you go to next tune on CD? On steering wheel? Not possible?

    It goes to next it won't go to previous via wheel. Must use hard key on radio.

    Re: Questions about Steering Wheel Controls

    In the early years, these controls are completely specific to the steering wheel for each combination of options with just a bit of crossover by model year. In short, you're stuck, good luck.

    Maybe a 2008 or newer would be more to your liking. They have one extra button on each side of the wheel.
