RL is correct. On the GLS models the column isnt wired to accept the multi function wheel. It is only available on the Lux package GLX equiped cars. Your only option is to get the Isotta wheel cover and stitch it together. There have been a few good write ups on the installation of one, and iirc it isnt all that expensive to get one. If you have a connection to get a wiring harness, etc for the wheel controls, then more power to you. And keep in mind that the horn connections are different as well from the multifunction wheel to the basic 4 spoke wheel.

HTH,
Steve
