Mk7 steering wheel into mk5 gti
« Reply #15 on: September 13, 2015, 04:53:25 PM »
Hi
Fitted R20 steering wheel into my MK6 (with the same 1K0.. CH steering module as MK5) and all buttons work but they wont illuminate. Yet.



To get your buttons illuminate on MK5 you will need to swap the steering module from newer model 2010up. To make it easier I made myself wiring adapter so I can always remove it and put original module back.



I test fitted it in my car and on ady-uk 2005 MK5. All works as it should, buttons, illumination etc.
Also tested 3 or 4 MK7 and Rocco wheels with cruise buttons and non of them works with 1K0 or 5K0 modules. Only the one without cruise buttons works.

Thanks
Alex

Hi @olsen-72 this is Luke from ReddiWraps.  :happy2:

I've just ordered a Mk7 GTI red stitch steering wheel without cruise. Can you retrofit this for me with illumination?

So it transpires that illumination will actually never work, I need the CH controller (but knew that would probably be required) and also I need a modified loom to make the horn work.

I have a Mk5 Golf 4Motion and Alex spent an afternoon testing his Mk7 wheel in my car

All buttons and illumination worked.
I have seen it working in my car.

How do you stand with airbag deployment on mods like this with the wheel being from another MK?

Surely injury is possible if the wheels at a different position.

This is now all working (due to me missing the MFSW wiring completely thanks @olsen-72 ).

I replaced the controller with the CH version, nav etc all coded up. Needed to do some basic settings on the steering and abs systems. But no error codes now.

Illumination still doesn't work unfortunately. If anyone else comes up with a solution, it would be great to find out.

Hi there,

Looking to put a mk7 wheel in my mk5, I have the highline display which requires the steering wheel buttons to work to operate it, does anyone know how much modification to the loom is needed to make the buttons work and the horn.
Also is the airbag plug the same?

cheers in advance

No loom modification required. Make sure your new steering wheel and airbag come with the correct loom. Just need a CH controller coding correctly.

No wiring changes were needed to get the horn working.

Illumination is impossible without a Mk6 steering rack.

I'll probably look at swapping mine at some stage with someone that has a Mk6 Edition 35, as they can get the illumination working.
