It would be fantastic is the cruise control function is built into the ecu b/c of the DBW and hooking up this wheel gives my cruise control in my base fit. It would be well worth the effort.
Niko could you speculate on this a little for me? If there's even an outside chance it could be done. I'd order a wheel off ebay today.
okay let me get this out of the way first. There is no such thing as
there being cruise or audio wires in there(clock spring). It's just a
spring with wires in it that can be used for whatever Honda wants
to. Get what i'm saying? You don't necessarily have to use what wire
they say. All you have to do is just find empty slots and use them up.
It's that simple.
So saying that. Now I'm not sure cause you have a base and i believe
your clock spring is different. So the only way for you to know is by
taking your steering wheel off. By taking the wheel off you can
essentially take off the clock spring and see how many empty slots
you have. By counting these slots you will be able to determine if
you can do what you want.
Now after saying that in a mouth full. I think it will be easier for you
to do audio controls than cruise. Audio only needs 4 slots total.
cruise needs 7 wires total which is more.
Also another note. If you really want to do this and you find out
your clock spring is missing wires. You can always get the spring
from the sport and be able to do all this.
