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?
