    Steering Wheel swap from a non-controls SW (B5.5) to a Audi 3 Spoke with Button

    Okay, so here's the deal, I dumped my headunit (Pioneer P9) and went with a tablet with USB audio going to into a USB DAC to my DSP via optical.. Basically no more RCA from HU (tablet) to the processor and the audio is passed in the digital domain versus analog and let the processor use it's built in DAC to process the audio. (less processing points == better sound)

    So I've got a bluetooth remote (http://a.co/hDZUK8p) so instead of using the supplied rubber mount that tends to fall out if you bump it hard. I was going to repurpose the buttons to connect to the bluetooth remote buttons, I basically will mount the bluetooth remote out of sight and just use the buttons on the steering (volume up/down and track up/down). that way I don't have to worry about the remote (falling off and getting lost)..

    Not the one that, I would like to enable would the lights in the buttons. and that is where I need a little help. This is not really a need, but more of a nice to have.. I see that I will probably have to rebuild the board as there's a common ground between the switches that I will probably not be using, just need it to be more a independent contact switch..

    So if anyone has the wiring diagrams for the buttons, please let me know thanks..

    After further review, this would not be beneficial as the BT, draws too much power from the tablet unless I mod the tablet by removing the battery and hard wiring it into the car and use the car battery as it's battery. so that it's all ways charged. Not sure I want to do this at this point.
