Default 2014 V6 Base, Steering Wheel Control/Aftermarket Radio

Hey guys,

Just got a V6 Base, and was looking to change out the stock radio, and while I am at it I was going to go ahead and replace the base model steering wheel controls, but I didn't know if this was possible.

I was going to replace my stock buttons:

with these:

Effectively I am trying to install the Ford Sync buttons on a car sans Sync. I am installing a Pioneer App Radio 3, with all the necessary cables, including a iDatalink Maestro ADS-MRR which is supposed to allow the use of factory steering wheel controls on the new unit. It uses a programmer to allow use of the factory keys. Is there any complications anyone can see with swapping out the controls?

Any input would be appreciated

not really, especially if you're planning on using it with aftermarket equipment. I believe those controls still use a resistor ladder network so you might have to add a couple of wires since the buttons you're installing have more functions than your car has.

Hey gmanjk, please let me know how this project worked out as I am thinking of doing the same things with my base mustang (w/o sync).

Appreciate your feedback.
