You've never said how many connectors or pin out on the Steering Column remote connector? Is it two or three? 1/8" jacks can have 2 or 3, 4 contacts is becoming common today, heck I've seen them with as many as 6.
Coming from a point of ignorance on the Radio here, but I would suspect the wiring before a programming problem in the translator/converter, especially since you described that you had to improvise with the wiring.
Data+ has to connect to Data+ and Data- has to connect to Data-, NOT ground. It might work grounding it, it might NOT work at all. If I understood you correctly, you connected the Data- to Ground, and it doesn't work well. That would be my first suspicion as to what is wrong, that Data- to Ground connection, if it isn't working right.
See what I'm getting at? You tried to squeeze a lot into a short post, so I might have misunderstood what you did.
