Swap out your boring old steering wheel for something else with media buttons! This wheel in-particular came from a 2010 Auris. The wheel itself is the same as our 09-12 Corollas with only a few differences to the buttons themselves (ie, UK version had phone answer/hangup and voice buttons whereas ours only came with DISP on the right hand side)
The clock spring supports 6 cables, one for the cars horn and two for cruise control... If you are an automatic owner the additional cables are used for your steering wheel mounted shift buttons... However if you are a manual owner these are not populated and you can do whatever the F you want. So I connected up my alternate steering wheels SW1, SW2 and SWG wires then ran some cabling to the head unit and presto, working buttons!
If there is enough interest I can do a more detailed write up some other time.
For those of you with a sharp eye, you can see this particular wheel comes with paddle shifters, it might be possible for an automatic owner to migrate to these instead of the ghetto buttons.
