2012 steering wheel into 2011 truck.

Recommended Posts

I am looking to put a 2012 steering wheel into my 2011 truck. I want to do this to get rid of the stalk that the cruise control is on and I think it is better looking with the button arrangement. I have seen a few threads where guys have bought the newer wheel and when they installed it the buttons did not work. I have looked over the wiring diagrams for a couple of days now and I see no differences in the way these two steering wheels are wired. The buttons are the same, just in a different place. I have yet to do any testing to see if the outputs have changed but I would also need to buy the new wheel first before I can do that. Does anyone here have any knowledge or information as to why this will not work? If not I guess I will have to be the guinea pig.

 

 

Thanks!

The clock ring and wiring would need to be looked at.  you might need to repin the connectors.

 

that would be my first thing to think about.

I have looked over the diagrams and all the connections are the same in 2012 as they are in 2011.   The only thing that changes is the hardware.   The only thing I can think of is that the output of the switches is different.

how many wires in the connectors?   

 

I know on 2nd gen trucks the buttons on the steering wheels are a ohm output to the pcm so they only need 2 wires for all the buttons.  If x is pushed then resitense = 2.2k for example.  The pcm picks that up and says ok do x

I believe the horn is routed through the cruise switch too if you have the button setup. Not sure how its done on the earlier style without the buttons though. I've seen complaints of horn not working and the part we replaced is the cruise switch (button pack).
