    Has anyone had complete functional steering wheel controls with an installed aftermarket radio? What wiring harness did you use?
    I used the Crux SWRTY-61N Wiring Interface on a Pioneer HU and some of the buttons work but does not do what the button actually is. I already contacted Crutchfield tech support but they weren't any help, after checking and verifying all the dip settings, and wiring.
    Example: Voice button mutes to ATT. Left/Right do nothing. Up button moves down. Down button moves up. Mode button is the only one that actually works correctly.

    Mine works...you have to go through a setup process where you program the controls and you can actually make the buttons on the steering wheel do whatever you want. Did you do that?

    Setup process? Tech support didn't even mention that. You used the CRUX harness?

    2008, Pioneer AVIC-D3. I don't have the bluetooth controls on my steering wheel, but as I recall the PAC has the option to control those as well.
