i dont get why they dont just have everything already presintalled in all trims of the camaros so that all you have to do is install hardware and poof it works! or just get rid of the idea of trims alltogether, have just "camaro" and a bunch of seperate options for the buyer to pick from. i think that would get better customer satisfaction and hence more sales.

You people are mechanical geniuses when it comes to tinkering with things. I'm scared as hell to take things apart and intimidated by engines. I need to be brave like you. Can someone please clarify for me, does the lower model vehicles not come with a phone button configured?

The 1SS does not have the option to be ordered with bluetooth. However all other trims except for the LS can be ordered with bluetooth. It's pretty much a crime that GM won't allow you to order Bluetooth with the 1SS like you can with the 1LT, but if you like cloth seats and the V8, this is the only way to get bluetooth.

That's just what I was thinking. My single biggest want was the cloth seats, but if I wanted any one thing from the 2SS, it would be the steering wheel controls. This is a great mod!

Just looking for some clarification here. By the sounds of the writeup it looks like were getting the radio controls/volume, mute and the onstar phone control. Not bluetooth for a cellphone??

You're right. I misread the post... even though you'll have the "bluetooth" buttons, you probably still need to install the bluetooth hardware. that stinks. Still upset at GM for this one then...

Thank you for posting this. This will really help me out when I get the parts in. I've just placed my order from GMpartsDirect.com. I've already got the Onstar bluetooth module installed on my LS I just needed the Steering wheel controls. Now I'll be able to do Voice dialing. Thanks again. I'll post on here when I get everything installed and how much the dealer charged me to update my BCM.

I was the same way, did not want leather seats. IMO, if you want leather seats go buy a luxury car not a Camaro!

So this is plug and play. No extra wiring or anything right?

This control also controls radio volume right?

I'm amazed that you were able to accomplish this with a Ford screwdriver.
Great write-up

yes radio volume is controlled and if you have installed pdim w usb it controls songs on ipod or device. it will also mute and connect to onstar. everything works like factory. it will change sources(xm,fm,am,aux) just like a 2ss.as far as a 1ss it is wired for it not sure on ls, mine is a 1ss and it works. i am curious if it will with an ls. If you go through this and get it programmed like i showed i cant leave you hanging. someone withan ls that does this mod let me know please if it works or not. if the wire isnt there to the bcm i will take mine apart and show you where to run and get part numbers for connectors. would hate to single you ls guys out to be the only ones unable to get them. I am not afraid to take my column back apart as this is an everyday thing for me at my dealer so dont feel like you would be puting me out to ask. i am willing to help any way i can would just take a little to get pics and instructions. please let me know if it works for you ls camaro owners.

the onstar vcim in the ls and 1ss dont have the port for bluetooth antenna. you would need the bluetooth vcim and antenna. problem is gm wont sell it to you for some reason. some of us on here are talking to gm about that also

Wow, way to make that look easy.

Will this void the manufacturing warranty in any way? That is the only thing I'm worried about.

seeing as how it is a gm program and a gm part i realy cant see where there would be a problem. The switch might not be covered for the duration of warranty if you had an issue with it since it was added on.When you order remote start for these vehicles you have to get them programmed from gm and all it is is a new key fob/clicker and a new program. That wont void any type of warranty. The only time i have ever seen them not warranty something that went wrong is because of an aftermaket install ie exhaust,radio,wheels and stuff like that. They cant say the program is what made your bcm go bad because it was from them. you will get a reciept from your dealer with the fact that it was gm programmed by them. The bulletin i posted says gm is ok with you adding this to your car. They just arent going to pay to get it done, because there isnt a fault with your vehicle, just like if you wanted the usb port. same thing gm part and program not gonna void your radio warranty.To tell you the truth unless you mentioned the fact of installing them at a later date they probably wouldnt even know since it is a factory switch. I am looking for gm to come out with an upgrade kit for this option anyways. It was way too easy and a ton of people want them.

I just check on my LS and all the wires appear to be connected to the SIR Coil. and When I checked the Lt. Green Wire with my Voltmeter, and pressed my buttons. I was able to see the voltage appear and each button was a different voltage, So I guess I'll take it to the dealer with the PIC5320 and ask them to activate it.

Thanks for all the work 'techsupport'

I am so glad to hear about this, my parts are on order now! I already have the PDIM and the bluetooth module, this was the only thing I was missing!

Thanks for the great information!
