So after I found an easy way of removing the head Unit from my car I set out finding an easier way than splicing 2 different looms together.
- Difficulty Level:
I found that the 2005 CR-V Connetcts2 wiring matches exactly except for the grey plug on the CTHSO001.2 plug.
If you compare the bog standard connector without the steering wheel control you will notice that there are 2 wires missing in the top right.
As you can see there are 2 wires in those spaces on the loom which will have the steering wheel controls connected.
I cut those 2 wires and these will be the 2 wires that I will attach to the green connector
The 2 wires in the this are the steering wheel wires.
I crimped the wires after finding out from another guide which colour wire does what on the steering wheel.
Then connected everything up according to the guide
That's it everything should work on the steering wheel. The only issue I've had is that the volume down doesn't work, I'm not sure whether it's my stereo or I've missed something.
