Steering wheel w radio control 147

I have just board a new original (for 156 and 147) leather steering wheel with radio control for my 147 (2004 JTD 8v), which does not originally have radio control. Does anybody have any experience in mounting the radio control? Is it possible, or do you need to update the car's computer, and install new cables, or do you only need to change the black round steering wheel cable unit (place behind the wheel)?

I have been in contact with my local Alfa dealer, but the support here in Denmark is limited!!!

Re: New Steering wheel 147

Hi jto, and welcome to Alfaowner.

In answer to your question I think that steering wheel control has nothing to do with the computers computer. You may find that the steering wheel control cables plug straight into the back of the Standard Alfa/Blaupunkt Head unit, although it probably depends on which head unit you have.

You should be able to find the model number of the Head Unit in your owners manual then call your local Alfa dealer and ask them if it is compatible with the steering wheel control (I assume your have bought an original Alfa Leather steering wheel). If it is then it should be a case of wiring it up to the correct socket on the back of the headunit.

This is how it should work if it was logical, but I have no experience of it in practise so the best people to ask would probably be an Alfa Dealership.
