2008 LS Cruise Control

I was wondering what are the necessary wiring steps to add cruise control to a base LS. I have a SS wheel coming soon. I already checked and there isn't a wire in pin 61. So my question is, what does this pin need to be wired to? Also I believe I need the pin connectors. I believe there is a Cobalt in a salvage yard near me. They won't personally let me go out in the yard, so any tips on describing how to find the connectors in the car? Also to possibly save me the trouble, does anyone know of another source for the connectors?

Thanks for your time.

Just go to GM dealer and buy the two pins necessary and fish the wire through to the clock spring, or do like I did and install aftermarket cruise. Either way you will need to go to dealer to get it activated unless you have your own Tech 2. Make sure wire jacket fits in the hole of the connectors.

Black, in the link you have, you have two pictures of harnesses. What are the differences? Hopefully I'll be able to go into my Chevrolet dealer and get those pins.

They are what plugs into to the back of the radio for the audio controls. On the how to at Cobaltss . net. They mentioned that they were a round pin type.

I was just showing that they can be a square variety and that you should check to see what you have.

Well, went to my local Chevy dealership and they didn't have any. I'm gonna have my brother check other dealerships close to his work. Anybody out there have some to spare perhaps?

I was able to find the square connectors for the SIR and the round for the BCM. You said you found radio connectors right? I have the radio out and the pins look like a different shape. I can't get them out. Maybe it's just the light but for the radio, is it the same square connectors or different ones?

Mission accomplished folks. Steering wheel is installed with cruise and radio controls working. Thanks to Coby for the pins for the radio. They weren't quite right, but I managed to get them to fit. The funny thing is it's a wheel from a G5 so the lights are red!
