    Hello everyone, This is definitely a little stretch, I’m currently trying to build my Tacoma into a Baja build and along the way I have replaced my steering wheel to an aftermarket so I don’t get an airbag in the face high speed but I miss my buttons, my clock spring fuse somehow broke but does anyone know if it’s possible to leave the aftermarket wheel and plug a new clockspring into the power system while grabbing the old buttons from the steering wheel and connecting it to the clock spring that way I still have controls, should be plug and play I assume, if so I will have to find a way to hold the clock spring from dangling.

    Why not just disconnect the airbag?

    By disconnecting the airbag do you mean just from the fuse box or clock spring cause I like my afternarket wheel and my oem clock spring is broken

    Well the clock spring is like $25 how bit if you already own an aftermarket wheel then the bluetooth buttons above are about the only other option
