Aftermarket Steering Wheel Controls - 2004 9-3

Hey guys,

First post over here. Have an '04 9-3 Vert. Gutted the stereo and bought the Connects2 SAAB 1998-2005 CTSSA002.2 for the steering wheel controls. Now, it says to lift pin #1 under the steering column but pin one is a Canbus connection (digitized) and the analog connection with voltage is actually in the wheel itself. From the wiring diagram, it appears to be encoded at CIM.

The Connects2 is flat out wrong and should have the range of 1998-2002 because they changed the controls in 2003-2006.

I also read about the PAC devices but no mention on where and how to wire these. Do they work with CanBus?

How would you guys go about retaining steering wheel controls? Running an analog wire through the wheel is tangling everywhere (although it does produce voltage) and can be configured with the aftermarket deck.

Thanks much.
