Customer Question

Hi,
2010 F150, just had the factory radio replaced with a factory rebuild radio, now I'm not able to use the controls on the steering wheel for radio control. I can use the controls for the sync on my phone for making and receiving calls. What would I need to do to get my steering wheel and radio to work together again?

The radios are considered modules and are programmed to the vehicles. If you are using the same model as the last one or a simialr model, then the next step is to have Best Buy, Ford, or another audio shop program it to link up to the truck so the controls will work.

I ran into that issue with mine in my personal vehicle and Best Buy was able to do it for $39. They program the radio to use the controls in the vehicle like they are supposed to be used.
