Exclamation steering wheel audio & nav controls

have an 2008 sport, bought the switches and wire harness in the sticky. I should have looked at the back of the steering wheel before i bought the parts, seems they changed the 08 steering wheel to all one piece. removed the airbag (held on by three retainers now, no more bolts) to see if i still could do it, nope no port for the wire harness (only one port on the clockspring now) so there went that.

i think you should add a note to the sticky so dumbies like myself don't waste their time...

I do find myself missing that feature most when I get into my other vehicles.

This is from a thread called useful tidbits:

Re: Useful Tidbits

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New Discovery!...Anyone with the Navigation Radio in the XK...You can use steering wheel controls to operate the Navigation System, just like the Navigation radio in the Grand Cherokee.

You can switch the Navigation controls from the radio buttons to the steering wheel by holdiing down the Center button on the right side of the steering wheel, then while holding the button down...press and release the center button on the left side of the steering wheel. Then if you look at the display on the monitor you will see a steering wheel icon on the lower right of the display (next to the clock). During the time the steering wheel icon is displayed control of the Navigation is switched to the steering wheel. To switch control back to the radio buttons, just hold the center button on the right side of the steering wheel and press and release the center button on the left side of the steering wheel and the steering wheel icon is no longer visible.
