Adding radio controls to 2014 Versa Note

I've got myself a new 2014 Versa Note S and I'm installing an aftermarket stereo in it that supports steering controls. I was hoping someone could elaborate on whether or not you can add these in on this model. I had the base Altima, and it had the plug for them, so it was just a matter of changing the panel out and they worked. Is this the same on the Versa?

I do not have first hand info on your question but here is a link to the Note service manual which may help. AFAIK the Note steering wheel is from a Sentra and I would assume all their controls are compatible (since most Nissan models also share radios). Obviously your aftermarket radio should be compatible to Nissan.

I figured as much, I just wanted to be sure that the plug was in the steering wheel to support it.

Popped the airbag module...it looks like Nissan went the path of the Altima and Sentra. There IS a plug back there for steering controls. Ordered them and I'm going to pop them in to see if they work. If it's anything like the Altimas, then they're supported out of the box.

Send a message via Yahoo to Versa S 2009
When I had my 2009 Versa sedan, I added steering wheel controls to mine. Should be about the same.

Cool. I'd like to do this as well. What stereo did you get? Did you get speakers as well? Any other info would be appreciated!

In my case I've got a gen 2 2014 note. It looks like the plug is already in there so I'm going to try as soon as the controls get here. I've got an aftermarket unit with programmable controls so I can try to see how it reacts with the controls in there. Has anyone tried adding them to a stock 2014 to see what happens?

OBTW, I managed to get the airbag off on the Gen2 model. NOT an easy task. those springs are a pain. Despite what the manual says a flat blade seems to be the easiest thing to use.
