  1. 06 OEM steering wheel to an 07 or newer?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Hi foxy boxers, I read a lot of posts about using a Pilot steering wheel on your Element, but what about just updating an '06 to the newer Element wheel, like an '07? Any issues at all? Are the radio controls still using analog resistive based signals? I will be installing an Atoto A6 Pro head...
  2. Steering wheel radio Controls NOT working

    Mobile Electronics
    So my 2006 Element was broken into and my aftermarket radio was stolen (wasn't even an expensive radio). The body shop put in a stock OEM radio which is fine by me BUT the steering wheel controls are not working. I never adapted the aftermarket radio to work with the steering wheel controls so I...
  3. Cruise Control buttons - should they light up?

    The other night I was trying to engage the cruise control and having a bit of difficulty finding the right buttons. Much of my daily driving is in short chunks and light traffic where I don't use cruise. It occurred to me that I don't know if the cruise buttons should light up when the...
  4. 2003 vs 2011?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I love my 2003 Element, but... 180,000 miles is making me nervous. I was looking at a 2011 with 30,000 miles, but had some questions. Can I do the Pilot leather wrapped steering wheel swap? Will the leather covered automatic shift knob fit?

I turned on my emergency flashers and slowed down enough to not drive off the road, and after jiggling the wheel back and forth a bit it unlocked and I was able to get the car home without...
  6. Key Moving from ON to ACCESSORY with Little Force

    Problems & Issues
    I was pulling into my driveway the other day and ever so gently bumped or snagged on the ignition key while turning the wheel, my E went from up and running to all systems down in a flash. It took me a moment to realize what had happened, but turns out the ignition key was flicked backward from...
  7. Steering wheel alignment off after strut replacement

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    I just got my 2003 Element DX back from the Dealership, where they replaced the front strut assembly. Now, the steering wheel is turned about 1/8 of the way around counterclockwise. I'm pretty sure I would have noticed that problem before bringing the car in, so I think it's new since the...
