Default RE: adding steering wheel audio controls?

Here are two threads about what you want to do, and how to do it.Thread 1, Thread 2. I only glanced at them, I found them in the FAQs on those forums. Hope this helps!

Post Adding steering wheel control to 06 accord lx

This is a possibility. However it is not a simple diy. I purchased an ex steering wheel from ebay. It plugs right into the harness of the lx, but it requires another step to control an aftermarket radio. Two wires must be added to the white wire harness located on the top end of the steering wheel. To access this harness, the steering shaft cover must be removed.
Further, a steering wheel control interface must be used for the aftermarket radio. An excellent choice is the metra axxess aswc module.
When you purchase the ex steering wheel you will notice that it has 2 additional wires that the lx steering wheel does not have. A brown wire and a green wire. These wires must be added to the harness that plugs into the white harness on top of the steering wheel. The wires are then run with the factory wiring and then connected to the axxess steering wheel control. Axxess - grey/red wire is connected to the brown wire added to the harness. The green/black wire is then connected to the ground. That should work.
