irst, You must get the steering wheel with controls. I believe part numbers were listed above, but bottom line, make sure you get the right color if you are ordering. The black one is called ebony. Prices vary depending on where you get them. I got mine from a salvage yard brand new for $75. Second, You must replace the clockspring with the column harness. If you have a light duty pickup, you will need part number 26101829. This is for a 2 stage air bag. If you have a heavy duty, order part number 26101828. This is for a single stage air bag. If you are unsure, take off your airbag and look to see if it has 1 or 2 pigtails connected to it. 1 is a single stage, 2 is a 2 stage. GM has reduced the number of part numbers available to simplify things. Therefore, you will get a harness equipped with an additional 8 pin connector. This is for the steering wheel speed sensor for quadrasteer. If you do not have quadrasteer, just tape it to the column and don't worry about it.
Be careful when installing the harness, there are about 14 connectors, I spent 2 hours installing the harness and wheel.

did you hook the cables up backwards (ground to positive) as this could short out your electronics. are there any other electronic issues. if you didnt and everything else is ok you radio may have an anti-theft program. you can try disconnecting the ground connection to the battery for about 30 secs and reconnecting it. if it still doesnt work look in your owners manual how to reset the computer also check your fuses.. if all fails you may need to get the radio reprogrammed good luck

The alternator keeps the battery in your Pontiac going, constantly recharging it as you drive. The battery will quickly drain if the alternator is bad, so it must be replaced in that case. The alternator is mounted in the engine and naturally connected to the battery in all models, but other components could be in its way depending on the type of Pontiac you own. This will determine how difficult such a replacement will be.
