    Hi
    Just a video I made showing how to connect the cruise control and audio buttons up on a 2012 steering wheel. There is a video on you tube already, but I found it hard to understand.

    Managed to make it work without buying the wpt-440 plugs.
    Maybe this might help someone else out.
    Cheers

    Could this mod be done swapping in a later model clock spring so that you dont have to cut all the wires?

    or maybe just splice a few under the steering wheel???

    Cheers Thanks, one of the reasons I brought this car was because of the conversion. :)

    It might work, could be a bit easier. I have not seen what the newer clock spring looks like.

    I got caught up on the wiring... My 2008 doesn't have the same color wires and I've been unable to find a pinning diagram. I've got hands-free and audio working like a champ, but nothing from the cruise control side of the wheel.

    Any insights?

    Sadly not until I go back in. If memory serves we didn't have a white wire at all.

    LED's function, indicating red/black-red/green success, but the other two? Nothing...

    Maybe in the last picture, the blue/ dark-grey and the orange/ light grey need to be swapped around.

    That was the thought, but swapping them did nothing.

    Found this photo of the cruise control plug. But you can't' see the back wire. Could be brown or black. Have you got the green wire going to ground?

    This is from an Swedish forum translated with google translate

    This summer when I was in the United States, I got a cheap steering wheel with sound buttons for a 2012 so it would be fun to
    get it and get started all the buttons.
    The steering wheel was quite tired with buttons like flag and some scratch, but after a little left "rim color" and a button representation
    https://www.amazon.com/Mustang-Steering-Wheel-Button-Repair/dp/B01LWU237A Looked great

    Physically, the wheel fits directly and you can use any center you want.
    Now over to the electrical connection:
    You will need to use the cable from the new dial but the connector from the old + that you need to use an additional 4-wire connector
    (a USB connection to computer motherboards fits)
    Start by cutting off the connectors (save earth wire + cable shoe to tilt the old connector)
    Connect now:
    (white-gray), (blue-brown), (green or black-black), (red-red).
    You now have 4 wires left, which you probably pull back to the cross and connect to a USB connector
    check so you understand better, but I think it's better to connect all 4 cables.
    Down to the stereo connectors for then, it works with Orginal stereo.
    # J1,16 or J3,4 - blue -
    # J1,17 or J3,5 - Yellow +
    # J1.18 - Green +
    # J1.19 - Purple -
    Here is a link to a pdf that investigates this very well
    https://www.google.se/url?sa=t&rct=...ustang-2.pdf&usg=AOvVaw0JYF3dyOjDYMrvs58cXh6I
    Now I have an android star so it was only to ground the two mini-leaders and connect the other two to key1 and key2 on the stereo.
    In summary, the installation was very successful, the "new" wheel is also more comfortable to hold in, slightly thicker and softer.
    regards Mats

    Paul, I have one more question, you said on the video that blue and green go together with the black, and yellow and violet are for key entry, when I looking on the wiring diagram, green are switch audio feed, violet are Audio return, yellow are switch steering wheel feed, and blue steering wheel return, so my question are, I need exactly the connection that you mention on the video or in my case I need use yellow and green as key entry and blue and violet as ground?

    Hi You need to test what switches your wires come from on the steering wheel. As mentioned I have not seen a 2013 steering wheel wiring. cheers
