    I also have a 2002 Maxima and would like to get the steering wheel controls working with an aftermarket radio. Also, my trip computer is not working either, how can that be hooked up?

    The car stereo guys say the volume controls may work, with an additional 140$ cable, but what about the trip computer? Any ideas?

Those controls will only work with your factory audio unit not aftermarket ( it has an interphase )

RE:After market Pioneer touchscreen six cd changer radio is not appearing on screen,except for a tenth of a second upon starting.It then disappears...This now occurs after I disconnected battery then

First thing to check is the wiring to the back of the Pioneer Stereo to be sure it has constant reliable power and ground. If all the wires are connected properly... then the problem is internal. Throw it away and buy a new one, less cost than attempting repair. On second thought, sell it on ebay and describe it's problem accurately, there are people that repair stuff like that in their spare time.
The factory controls for volume/onstar and such located on the steering wheel are rendered useless when the factory radio is removed.

as the car never had the radio control wheel in the first place you would have to make sure that the radio has the relevent wiring to connent to one , i think you might find you'll have to install a wiring loom that connects the radio to the wheel buttons

2001 nissan pathfinder se wiring diagram

I have a 2001 Nissan pathfinder and had the stereo changed. The original stereo had the feature of the controls on the steering wheel but when the stereo was changed that feature no longer worked. I had brought the car to a shop where they installed that stereo and the controls were not working but I didn't want to bring it back to them. I now have a Sony Stereo in it now and would like to get the controls on the steering wheel working again. Could you please tell me which wires are the ones that connect the steering wheel controls to the stereo.

Steering wheel radio wires, i need a wire color diagram to steering wheel for the aftermarket radio i need to know the wire colors that controls what.

The wires that control the radio from the steering go to the Body Control Module (BCM), not directly to the radio. The BCM sends data over the serial bus to the radio.
