Multifunction Steering Wheel - Pajero Sport

Recommended Posts

I am about to get hold of the parts required to get a multifunction steering wheel in my Pajero Sport.

I have found a website in thai that describes how to do this, but some of the links provided to the suppliers of the parts doesn't seem to work.

If anyone have any clue where to buy these parts, please feel free to let me know.

I've done it:

The parts required are different for the 2008-09 vs 2010 model - as the 2010 model comes with cruise control, the clock-spring and wiring harness to the wheel is already there, 2008-09 models will require these additional (OEM) parts, and they're not by any means cheap.

If you have a 2010 model with cruise, the parts you'll need are:

1. The wheel switches. These are a genuine Mitsubishi part from the Lancer EX top model. Mitsubishi Part number 8701A087. Prices seem to vary from dealer to dealer - 1600 to 1900 + VAT seems to be the range. Order with your local Mitsubishi parts dept.

2. The Skott Audio wheel-stereo interface box. Part number SXN-1058. Price is 2200 Baht including EMS. Order direct from support@skott-audio.com (based in BKK, speak excellent English, prompt service)

MoonRiverOasis,

that's excellent info, exactly what I was looking for! Did you install yourself (does it come with instructions in english?) or did Mitsubishi do it?

Did it myself..

The only real challenge was getting the blue and red wires into the factory connector at the wheel end of things, as there's no spare pins in the required spots, just holes. In the end I managed to get those wires bouble-backed on each other, which created a good enough connection, and I tinned them with solder for prosperity. If you're able to source the pins and an appropriate tool to terminate them, that would be best of course though :)

The rest is all dead easy - a couple of terminations (orange to ACC and black to GND) at the stereo wiring harness (both clearly marked on a sticker atop of the Alpine DVD player), and then the remote signal wire which is just a plug-in affair..

* Volume up/down

* Track forward/back (though I must concede that 'back' has a bit of an odd behavior)

* Source switching i.e. DVD/Tuner/CD Changer/Aux

please let me know where to buy and cost! thanks.

It's not a Mitsubishi service, in fact no-one at my local dealership was willing to accept it was even possible - I got 3x follow up phone calls asking if I was sure I wanted to buy a part from a Lancer EX.. :)

If you're not into DIY (or just don't have the tools etc), and auto electrician, auto airconditioning or auto sound shop ought to be able to take of the installation - I wouldn't expect to pay more than 100-200 Baht for the work.

The parts costs are already outline in my above post. If you have a 2008-09 Pajero Sport (without cruise control), add the following parts:

* Clockspring: Mitsubishi part number 8619A018. ~4800 Baht.

* Steering wheel wiring harness: Mitsubishi part number 4400A361. ~200 Baht.

Note that all of this only applies to the Pajero Sport GT - not the GLS.

Here's a little more detail on how to wire-up the SXN-1058:

* Orange - Accessory 12 volts (ACC)

* Black - Ground

^ These can be found at the DVD player or at the LCD screen - you might find the latter a little easier to work with.

* Remote signal (1/8" phono plug) - plugs directly into the back of the DVD player.

* Red - pin #2 of the steering wheel harness

* Blue - pin #3 of the steering wheel harness

* White - not connected.

Note: The pin #'s referenced are looking from underneath the steering column - see image below:

Also note that the wiring for the SXN-1058 is unfortunately not long enough to locate it behind the DVD or LCD - you'll see in my photos (way above) that you have to mount it mid-way between the stereo and the steering wheel.

and I tinned them with solder for prosperity.

I think the tinning with solder is a really good idea, but I just can't work out how you think it is going to make you wealthy. Is this some kind of alchemy? :)

hehe :D

Well, it'd definitely make me less wealthy if it came loose and caused a short :D

If and when i get my 2.5GT (or should i go for the 3.2?) i`ll be doing this mod, and maybe drip some of that rubbery clue stick stuff into the plug to hold onto the wires incase they slip out..and it is easly peeled out after if req`d...

Just a note to you, can you give me any links to online brochures for accesories for the thai model all i can find are the aussie or uk accesories..looking for dog rack, rear liners etc..

And do you think the stage 2 chip with your exhaust pipe thing is enough to stop me needing the 3.2 engine...thanks

We're getting a bit off-topic here :D

Get the 3.2 of you need (or think you'll need) 4WD, or if there's some other reason you want it, if not, the 2WD makes sense :D (how's that for non-comittal? :D )

As for using silicon or some-such to hold the wires, sure why not :D If you bend them back over themselves and tin them with solder as I did they're not coming out without some pretty serious effort - so either way would work..

RE: Accessories, I've never seen a "cargo barrier" (I assume that's what you mean by dog rack) in Thailand I'm afraid - putting your dog(s) in the back of the car is just not the Thai way (toy dogs in the front licking your face, or in the back of a pickup is the Thai way :D ). As for rear liners, you may want to consider even more coverage if you're going to be heading out of the city..

This is what I put in mine:

Cost is 2500 Baht + delivery for a full-car 14-piece set, and the quality is truly superb. :)

The vendor can be contacted on 086-378-1555 or email at //e-mail removed as per forum rules// . Many colors are available.. The conact name for the vendor is "เมษ" (Met) - note that he speaks limited English though..

Sorry for going off topic, WOW those mats do look good for protection from that red mud in the north where i am...i think the 2 wheel drive will do then, if i get the mods you`ve mentioned on the other thread, i`ll be using it on the road and have no intention for going rough....thankyou for your helpfull reply, and maybe i can p.m. you if your ok with that? about the specific details re. the chip/pipe/ etc..very kind regards sir..

p.s your pic shows a left foot rest, the 2.5gt i test drove didn`t have one, can they be added?

I've read that there's been some changes to the front seat mounting points (cosmetic only) but nothing to suggest that the driver's foot rest has been deleted - that'd be a step backwards if it's the case. It's only an 'impression' in the floor, not a bolt-on - are you sure it's gone?

Feel free to PM me for email addresses that this forum won't allow, but be warned that I do largely ignore them and I don't get conversational in PM's :) If there's intel I have that's of use, it's better to share anyway :D

Hello to forumers, I just want to ask if the maker of these carpet will be able to send it in the Philippines? I really want a set of these carpet mattings but unfortunately my location is far. Can I have his e-mail address? Thank you very much.
