ok swapped out my hu for a shaker one today. got the sound right but i couldnt the whole sync modules and wires out so no sync\ steering wheel controls work but a price because the aux. input is connected to sync on the shaker system so now i have no aux input which is ok with me but now i do have a 6 cd changer and my steering wheels controls work so . o and the compass still doesnt show up on my car so im just assuming that theres a module for that or its in the programming of the car.

I'm bumping this thread up as I noticed our good friend FordEngineer is back to actively posting. I PM'ed him this morning and am hoping for some assistance in this as I am really missing having the basic audio controls on the steering wheel.

FE - if you're out there, please help!

Here is a write up I referred to when I wanted to get the 2010 wheel from cubican.

I just swap my old GT 500 steering wheel for a new 2010. The swap is not a direct fit, I had to used the old harness and the new one from the steering wheels , (thanks Brian " Downtime" for the old steering wheel). If anyone whant to do one the wire combination is; Black (new H) to green (old H), Red to Red, Brown to blue, Grey to white. If you want the radio control to illuminate Black to green , and Red to red. The radio controls will not work but the cruise will work perfect. The lights on the steering wheels are blue not green.

Yes the wheel swap is simple. The issue is getting the steering wheel audio controls working with the base GT radio head unit. Not the Sync controls but just the volume and seek buttons. The base unit has no Sync support or any of the necessary modules.

The wiring is there (confirmed by a swap to a Shaker head unit), however, we are not sure if the base head unit supports the contols and if it does, how to get them to work.

From a previous PM from FordEnginner, the base head unit should support the audio controls but getting them to work has been a fruitless endeavor so far.

I'm planning to build a carPC and program the steering wheel audio controls to do whatever I want. You will need these 2 parts (+ the computer setup of course)

Pac Audio SWI-X to transmit steering wheel button presses to the next item...

I'm jumping on this bandwagon. I love my 2011 GT but the molded plastic wheel makes me crazy.

Are they in stock at partscheap??

I bought one from them 3 weeks ago just haven't had the chance to install it yet. When I ordered it they told me it was backordered, but two days later they sent me an email saying that it was being shipped that day. I have a long weekend this week so I will finially have a chance to put it in.

Finally got the steering wheel installed yesterday afternoon. It was about the easiest thing I have done on either of my mustangs. It looks great and everything was just plug and play. Took about 45 minutes total to do once my battery was disconnected for an hour beforehand. The new wheel definately feels better in your hands as well. As stated several times before in this thread, the audio controls do not work but the cruise works perfectly.

Ordered mine from Tousley Ford today. The guy I spoke with said there looked to be a backorder of 30. I guess I will try to be patient...

Mine's backordered too! I ordered a week ago and I'm still waiting...(

Since my 5.0 is in the shop for a trim panel replacement, I got a 2011 V6 Premium as a loaner. I love that steering wheel! But man, it just doesn't sound right...that new V6 is powerful but it just sounds wrong for a mustang.

Ok, so I read all of these the other day but can't remember if my question was answered and don't feel like reading 15 pages again. Has anyone put one of these on a 2009 or newer? If it will mate up I may be the test dummy to see if my aftermarket stereo will work with the audio controls.
