Default Do I lose steering wheel controls with new radio?

I'm in the process of installing new radio on a 2003 Pilot but I want to know if I lose the steering wheel controls. Thanks!

It will depend on if the new radio supports steering wheel controls and
then you will need an adapter.

Do I need an adapter if the radio does NOT support controls or the other way around?

If the radio does not support steering wheel controls then no adapter
is needed as you lose the ability. How could you adapt the steering
wheel buttons to a radio that doesn't support external control?

If your radio does suppot external control then you would need a
sbehicle specific adapter to make the signals generic and those would
then go to the radio.

I made the appointment with the installer for monday. They confirmed that I need an adapter that costs $80, so I'll go without the external controls.

Thanks!!!

There was a "harness" that I was missing. That's besides the adapter.

Just 20 bucks.

The vehicle specific wiring harness is never included with the radio
except for places that add it on for free (like Crutchfield). Always
best to use the harness rather than splicing\cutting wires so the stock
radio can be put back and to avoid potential issues.

I'm learning along the way. But the installation didn't go through because I'd have to lose the GPS/camera. All I want is to play my phone through the radio.

Plan B is to install an auxiliary input.

I think I need this:

Do you want to connect your phone wired or wireless (bluetooth)? The
2nd link you have here, for the Pilot, starts at model year 2004. The
1st product you linked requires the radi oto have RCA inputs on the
back which I do not know if your radio has.

If you are in the US, call Crutchfield at 888-955-6000. I've been
shopping them for years. Their prices aren't the best but competative.
Where they are worth it, especially for a novice such as yourself, is
lifetime tech support (both installation and use) of all products they
sell.
