If you're not afraid of some DIY wiring, it should be a simple mod electrically. The challenge would be housing the switches.
Electrically, the on/off, set/decel, and resume/accel buttons use very simple circuitry. The wheel uses only 3 wires (hot, ground, signal) to make it work. The ground is for the LED to indicate that it is powered on, the power is on a DPST switch with one pole turning on the LED and the other pole enabling the switches. The signal wire carries a constant signal that goes through 3 resistors in series. When resume switch is pressed, it takes juice directly from the power switch and jumps around the first resistor, effectively shorting across it and eliminating it from the circuit, which the BCM reads as a larger voltage. The set switch jumps around the second resistor. The third resistor remains in the circuit at all times.
If you measure the total resistance, then the resistance with one switch pressed, then the other, and then both, you'll be able to figure out what the resistors are. From that, you can build a small board and mount some switches wherever you'd like, including somewhere on this aftermarket wheel. If that wheel comes with switches where you have to finish the wiring, then all you'd need to do is add the resistors and Bob's Your Uncle!
Over the past couple of days I put a low beam and an exhaust solenoid actuator in a friend's 2011 Malibu 2.4. After my friend took possession of his car this afternoon I saw this cable on the ground and I'm wondering if anybody recognizes it as belonging to a 2011 Malibu?
So it sounds like on my 09 Malibu LT. 2.0 4 cylinder that I have a leak in my resonator. I was thinking about straight piping for a better sound. That’d include a muffler delete. Thoughts on this? Would it be ridiculously obnoxious with a terrible rumble or would it be totally different than...
Hey all, my car has hubcaps (2010 Malibu LT) and they have lots of wear and tear so I wanted to get black hubcaps to replace them and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with after market black hubcaps. Thanks!
I have a 2010 Chevy Malibu and purchased the Kenmore KSC-SW11 subwoofer/amp to install myself. I haven't been able to find much on installation steps and what obstacles I may face specific to my 2010 vehicle. I found the below walkthrough which is great, but I am hoping for some...
I was wondering which wire in the head unit I may use to mount the AM FM radio antenna. I have grown annoyed at the electromagnetic interference between the brake lights and the antenna. It's really annoying to have hyperflashed static and try to listen to the song through it.
So I found and...
