May the force be with you! I'm really missing this functionality and would love for someone to figure this out.

PS: What ever happened to FordEngineer? Haven't seen him post in a while and I figured he was the best one to help us out on this. He never responded my PM's either.

I believe that they should be able to hook up the scan tool at Ford and reprogram your car to get it to work. I used to work for a Ford dealer and when ever we added cruise control to a car we would have to reprogram it so the cruise would work. I have asked a bunch of people at Ford but noone can give me a straight answer cause they haven't done it yet. I've been watching this thread before I ordered one to make sure they would work.

I called my dealership and they claimed that how to reprogram the head unit to enable the radio control functionality was in the "owner's manual", but it's not.

I know that to get to the diagnostics you press 3 + 6 then you can press 6 to get to the radio config. There are like five configurations, but I can't figure out how to cycle through them or change them.

I read somewhere that this only displays the various configurations of the head unit. You can't change them. Trust me; I tried for days!

I know that we use to have to hook up the scan tool to do it. I am not positive that you can definatly do it for the radio controls as I have never done it. It's all on who you get at the dealership most people don't want to even try you may have to slide them some mula.

i wish we could find out for sure if they will work or not. what if were to replace our radio with a shaker one? are there amps that need to be used too? or can u just plug up the new radio and have the controls working? does anyone know exactly what all is involved in taking the sync system out of one vehicle and putting it in another?

Hey, just curious guys..... Why are you upgrading your steering wheels? I looked at that one and the only thing I see different is the snake in the center.

Other than the snake, does it look different than mine (i put the woodgrain on mine so it looks a little different now, but you get the idea)?

The Gt500 wheel has suede with bigger thumb ***** with white stitches. Not to mention is has real aluminum trim. But if i would of got the premium GT i would of just kept the stock steering wheel. The base GT wheel is plastic injection mold. It was terrible.

All the aluminum trim in my car is real aluminum, including the steering wheel. Mine has white stitching and real leather also, so I guess the GT500 wheel is different in that it has suede and bigger thumb *****. That snake in the middle looks sweet as hell too.

the deluxe GT wheel is why i upgraded. you have the GOOD wheel. no need for you to upgrade. also, it doesn't come with the emblem since thats attached to the airbag

because they don't have premium GTs, the 500 is nicer then the base one.

What do you mean they don't have premium GTs? I've seen lots of premium GTs.
