hii i just got a 2005 tc and i found out that i dont have the audio controls.... i am sooooo sad becase i am from panama in central america and i ordered this car from usa we dont have scion dealerships in panama... and i will love 2 know if someone is willing to sell me a 2006 with airbags steering wheel with the audio controls of to exchangeit with mine that doesn't have.... i need this like realy quick because i am about to get crazy without my audio controls...
i know that i can trasnform it also but since in panama there is no dealership for this car no one does mayor changes to it so no one is like realy experts on thier functionings..
I have the buttons and bezels for sale, but the steering wheel and airbag are gone. I did keep the harnesses though. Not sure if a non-audio control steering wheel has the wiring in it or not. PM me if you're interested.
I am fairly certain that the stock radio in the 2005 does not support the steering wheel controls. I have a 2006 tC and a 2005 tC that I switched the radio out because the 2006 is a much nicer radio. Along with the radios I took the armrest compartment that had the extra connectors in it (AUX, iPod, AV) as well. The wiring that scion did in my opinion is weird, one of the connectors to the back of the radio splits and goes to the steering wheel and down to the iPod connector in the arm rest compartment. Its a weird set up, but you don't have to use the cables to the iPod jack and it will still work.
All that to say if you want to use the steering wheel controls your going to have to get an aftermarket radio or the 2006+ Scion Pioneer radio.
P.S. The 2005 radio came with button controls; the 2006 came with **** controls and steering wheel capability.
P.S.S. You can find 2006 steering wheels without air bags for about $120 USD on ebay.
