Default diy! cruise control mod! 07 sti steering wheel into 04 ts!

i posted this in electrical and lighting, but some people might find it useful in doing an steering wheel swap

so i bought an 07 sti steering wheel a while ago and used this thread http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/ins...steering+wheel to use my 04 cruise control (remote on/off button), recently i had an urge to figure out how to get the 07 cruise control (on/off button on arm) to work, so this is my first diy

*cliff notes: splice green-blue from cruise control button to black on 07 cc through black clockspring wire(?) for trigger mechanism, provide power to red on 07 cc, easy?

1. this wiring diagram is a good reference to start from http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e3...eschematic.jpg

2. for comparison


3. first locate the following

a. cc plug under airbag *note the blank spot - that's how we will trigger the cc


b. clockspring connector(?) *to get to this connector, follow the arrow in the picture above* then cut the black wire to splice with green-blue from the 04 cc button in the next step


4. on the back of the 04 cc button, locate the green-blue, then cut and splice about 12" of wire to connect to the black wire cut in previous step *ignore the other three wires (i terminated them)


5. cut all the wires as close to the 04 cc as possible, use the wires to connect to the 07 cc according to this picture *i used a spade connector on the black so i don't lose the ability to disconnect it

07 cc wiring functions for the curious
- green = 12v
- yellow = set
- white = res
*red and black are for triggering the cc, one is 12v and one connects to the trigger

6. reconnect everything *so the black from the 07 cc is connected to the black going into the clockspring and spliced to the green-blue from the 04 cc button (you can see this in the bottom left below)

So is this so you can use the 07 cc switch instead of swapping with the original? Or is all the rewiring just to get the the trigger button to work?

umm, on the clockspring wire there are 4 wires - you are only concerned about the black one. the white red is on the cruise control side. i tapped power from the green-black. hope this helps bro. good luck

ok so in the 2nd to last pic on my 1st post, there's two sets of wires - one is the wires on the top part of the pic (going into the sleeve) are the 04 cc wires with connector; the other is the wires on the bottom of the pic are from the actual 07 cc.

then in the next pic, the "black to black" - one is the black wire from the actual 07 cc (from the previous pic); the other is the black wire from the clockspring connector (going into the yellow sleeve).

i hope this clears it up. i'm in iraq right now, but if i was back in socal, i'd help you out for sure. maybe you can take a picture and post it, i can help you out better. good luck

Big props to antho! for this diy!!

I just did the swap in my 03 today and this thread got me through the wiring w/o a problem. The hardest part for me was getting under the dash to do the blue-green to black wire connection...kind of a pita for a bigger guy like myself but being a contortionist for a little while is a small price to pay for the new functioning sti wheel with the proper cc...love it lol!!

the black cable is existing on the white connector (see step 3.a.), so i cut it and connected it to the 07 cc stalk. the other end comes out under the dash (see step 3.b.), so i splice wire from the 04 cc button to that wire (see step 4). make sense?
