More Tip Wheel Questions

Recommended Posts

Toolpants, you're right, I can't find any way to use the tip wheel buttons to make the Becker CDR220 change volume or tracks, and this isn't important enough to make me want to change to another radio headunit.

I have the OBC stalk already, but it'll drive me nuts if the buttons don't do anything. How can I wire the buttons to do the scroll through OBC functions? Or would it be easier to make the buttons do the door lock?

Youe expert advice, as always, is welcome

Keith :drive:

You might want to use those shift buttons for machine guns. :huh:

You are not the first one to want to use the buttons for radio functions - but this is not possible with the Becker radios.

There is nothing published on how to use the buttons to operate the OBC/trip computer. It is something a friend and I came up with last year when he got a good deal off ebay for a tip steering wheel on his manual transmission car, and he did not have the trip computer.

You have to buy an air bag spiral spring unit that is for a tip and replace it with the one you have. You also need one special VW wire. It is a bit involved as this is not the standard trip computer retrofit. We filmed the retrofit on another local car a few months ago. I will have to look through the video and see if it came out good enough to be included in our DIYer DVD set. It is not hard to do but there is no way I can explain it on a message board.
