2005 Baja Turbo

Default Cruise control switchs and steering wheel swaps... Help please.

So heres the dilema. Ill post pictures to make this tangled web easier to follow. FYI, these are not our cars actual pictures. just ones i found on google.

Buddy #1, John, Has a 2005 2.5RSTi with the standard Impreza steering wheel.

Buddy #2, Vince, Has a 2004 Subaru WRX with the Momo Steering Wheel.

Then there is Me. i have a 2005 baja turbo with the standard Subaru Wheel.

And then the Steering Wheel thats causing all this drama, and the reason for this thread... The 2005+ STi Steering wheel.

Now heres whats going on.

Buddy 1, (john) wants The Momo Steering Wheel from Buddy 2 (vince) in his 2.5RS.
Me wants Buddy 1's, (john) 2.5RS steering Wheel in my Baja.
Buddy 2 (vince) wants the STi steering wheel in his WRX.

the 2.5RS Steering wheel cruise control lever is different than the wrx.
The RS the cruise control is turned on by a button on the lever. The wrx the cruise is turned on by a button on the dash.
The STi is turned on the same way as the RS.
and the Baja is turned on the same way as the wrx.

So this means all the levers are different. and are the wrong set up for each car.

So my question is..

Can we use the stock cars lever, with the new steering wheel? are they an easy swap? or how can we solve this issue thats stoping us from all gettin the steering wheel we want for dirt cheap.

need to figure this out asap. THank you!!

I can tell you that I decided not to pursue installing the bigger stalk with the on/off switch into my 02 wrx wheel (which is just like the 04 pictured) The stalk is much bigger and does not mount the same way. I chose to reroute the on/off wiring as that seemed the easy of the two if that tells you anything.

You will also run into issues with the steering columns having different clock springs that are not interchangeable from one column to another.

If the stalks are the same, yes. If the stalks are different, not so easily.

Sorry for the hijack, figured I would bring a old thread to life and try to help others in a similar predicament as us. Do you have the pin out for the cruise switch from the 2005 wheel? I have the stock 05 wheel in my 01 RS and I’m trying to set it up cruise control and need the pin outs in order to hook it up to the clock spring, if it’s even possible...

Clock spring?

I merged an '04 STI ECU into an '04 forester harness that required rewiring the cruise switches. Which pinout's do you need?

In my case, the wires were all the same colors. Let me know if I can help.
