ide like to see a wk with the paddles that would be mint!
I was thinking that you could convert the raido controls (on the back of the steering wheel) to control the transmision.

Re: Paddle Shifter Mod

The only thing I see that would stop this mod from happening is the extra 2 contacts in their steering column clock spring, does anyone know if we have these?

Anyone work at a dealership and have access to some wiring schematics, or have torn their steering wheel/column apart?

If we have those 2 extra contacts we are gravy! I'll have to look at the room behind there as I know mine has all the controls behind there also. If there is room I'm doing this Mod.

Re: Paddle Shifter Mod

I don't think it'd be too much fun with a 4-speed though.

The dealer can flash yours to be a 5 speed. True.

Re: Paddle Shifter Mod

Yes, you have to have the AutoStick to start with.

Re: Paddle Shifter Mod

Almost 3 yrs old and I'm raising this thread from the dead.

I shall pose the question...Is it possible to put the WK2 SRT8 steering wheel on the WK1? I intend to find out and I will make it work!

This brand new 2012 SRT8 steering wheel showed up today.





I am currently mapping out the connectors and pins to see what goes where and connects to what on the SCM (steering control module). Here is the 05 wiring diagram and according to it there are 2 unused pins (1 and 4).



I intend to use these pins (1 and 4) as the up and down shift for the autostick and use the ground already there (pin 5) to complete the circuit. This will make the paddles functional when wired to the ESM. When using the Autostick feature all you are doing is grounding the signal wire, which completes the circuit and makes the trans shift.

Tomorrow I will acquire the wiring diagram for the 2012 and compare the 2 and iron out all the electronics.

Next step after that is to check the steering shaft splines and see if it fits the new WK2 wheel. As retooling would be very expensive I have high hopes that Chrysler kept it the same. We will soon find out.

I do have a question for those that have swapped their WK2 wheel to the WK2 SRT8 wheel. What is this gray thing in the pic below and did you have to swap it over to your new wheel?



Pic borrowed from this thread by SixZeroFour: http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php...paddle+shifter

A thanks goes out to moosehead for his pics in the thread above.

Stay tuned!
