Heated Steering Wheel Mod

I recently obtained a heated steering wheel from a 2007 Buick Lucerne, and tested it out in my Impala. I still need to get a clock spring from a DTS or a Lucerne, but everything else works just fine. I'll post an update when I have it fully installed.

Update: Got it fully installed! Everything works and aside from the steering wheel being gray, it looks like it's always been there.

wonder if you could pull it again and dip the wheel in a black rubber/neoprene or something to change the color/give it a renewed look.

or just have the local upholstery shop wrap it in new leather.

I'm probably gonna get a black DTS/Lucerne wheel if one comes into the junkyard.

@zaharren... Ok, so what did you have to do to wire it up? Pulling the airbag and the steering wheel is the easy part... clock spring is easy enough... I would be willing to do this swap.

The clockspring connector is different for the heated steering wheels, so you will have to get the male connector off the steering column of the junkyard car. In my install, I popped all the pins out of my steering wheel connector, and put them in the connector that came out of the junkyard car, so it looks stock. As far as wiring the power to the wheel heater, all you need is a good ground and a switched 12 volt feed. I will try to dig up a pinout.

Cool, might do this for the hell of it.
