confused NEED HELP...on new Radio Install...

Whats up gang, just need to know if i replace my factory CD/cassette/radio on my SUV, how can i get the audio controls on my steering wheel to work with the new radio? I mean is it even possible? I heard there was from people, but dont know if thats true or not. If it is true, that BE GREAT!

I have a 2001 Mercury Moutaineer 4WD. The CD/cassette/radio i have is still working, but the lights on the radio all went out.

Im thinking of changing it to a single DIN AM/FM/CD/MP3 player.

So pls, if u know, reply on how i can do this or if it can be done.

Re: NEED HELP...on new Radio Install...

ok go look closely at www.lightningaudio.com they have a module which will allow almost every aftermarket unit to be used through the steering wheel on almost any car. you need to really look as its in a place you wouldnt expect it to be (been to long, cant remember)
it is possible and isnt expensive.
ok here is the direct link. it is a SWI-X too so its what someone else said earlier

my local Autobarn stock Lightning Audio products and from personal experience they are excellent quality.
