I just got a multifunction steering wheel center.
My car is a 323i 1999, that didn't have the multifunction steering wheel.

Right now, I just need the media controls to work.
Just installed it but it's not working. Please help.

If I buy they retrofit (speed) cable, will the cruise control work?

Again, just need the media buttons to work.

Thanks in advance,
Did you ever get this working? Got the same car (2000 year though), installed my new multi-function M sport wheel last night but unsure of what I need to get it all to work. I have a cable throttle so not sure how the crusie will work.

Hi Steve,
When I fitted my multi-function steering wheel (not M sport) I used BMW Part No 61120016012 (which cost £19.01+VAT in 2015) to get the cruise control working. There are videos on YouTube showing how to fit it. As far as I’m aware, all the six cylinder E46 cars had everything the cruise control installed, whether the option was ticked or not. If it wasn’t ticked the above wiring loom and multi-function steering wheel was all that was missing. Four cylinder cars, however, were different. Hope that helps.

Regards
David
Hi David,
That is really helpful, thanks!
Is that cable the only one needed for both cruise control and the multi-function buttons? (volume etc.) My audio buttons currently don't work on the wheel. (My car had the triangle airbag without buttons on before the swap)
Thanks,
Steve
