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 don't think the problem is there.

Other than the new radio maybe being bad, is there something else that could be wrong with the system?

Thanks!

2005 radio doesn’t work with controls. That would explain it.

Otherwise my guess based on human psychology would be that since the wire wasn’t used with the aftermarket then it wasn’t identified as a wire that needed to be hooked back in to the new radio.

That assumes the original after market install didn’t use a metro adapter.

my 2009 element steering wheel volume up button is not working. I want to take it apart and see if it can be fixed but cannot find any info about doing this.

Has anyone tried this or does anyone have any advice or knowledge before I b read everything...?

thanks
