Steering Wheel Buttons

The steering wheel controls in my 09 lt don't work.
They are the information and enter button. I'd really like to have these two buttons because I can't set trips or view any info on the car.

I took off the airbag and the buttons have two wires and a ground going to them. Where the wires connect to the column there are no pins to receive the connection. I took off the cover behind the steering wheel and there is a harness with 6-7 wires.

The car has been rebuilt after a front end wreck so I'm guessing the wrong wiring harness was used.

Could I just find the correct wires in the dash and route two new buttons that aren't on the steering wheel? I'm good with soldering and switches.

What wires should I look for? All the diagrams I find are for 05-07 cobalts.

Thanks in advance!

pop off the trim piece to the right of the steering wheel and see if theres a connector there. Thats the only place I've seen those buttons, so you might have to wire them yourself if theyre there

Here are the connector pin out. Check your RPO list to see which steering wheel your car came with. Check for code "(UK3) Control - Steering Wheel, Accessory,(N34) Steering Wheel - Leather 3 Spokes or (N45) Steering Wheel - 3 Spokes"

Doesn't have steering wheel radio controls. Just the two buttons. Thanks for the diagrams coby. I'll open it up and see what I got.

RPO list is in the trunk under mat to the left of the spare tire. Yours might have had the radio controls on the previous steering wheel and info buttons would have been on opposite side.

I don't know. When I google 2009 lt I see a lot with the same steering wheel as me.

Here is a pic. That is identical to mine. The two left buttons is what I need. Car can't tell me anything right now


Wait, I now see that is an xfe with a stick and manual windows.

I'll get into it tomorrow night I hope
