I have my bluetooth audio switch and harness installed. Lucked up and found a bluetooth onstar on eBay. Now I can't find a dealer in TN willing to program for under 190.00. I flippin refuse to pay that. Anyone have list for states nearby that have done so I don't get raped. I seen one before but I can't find it now. Thanks in advance. And Thanks for this how-to Im a female and installed this all myself so it is super easy. Just need a competent dealer willing to program my darn BCM!!!!

I'm a little out of your way, but if you are in town Pete Moore Chevrolet in Pensacola, FL will reprogram. 50 bucks to chevy and .5 hours labor. I was quoted by them ~90.00 bucks.

Which dealer did you take it to? You need to take a copy of the front page of this thread, and take it back and tell them they are full of it!

Hey how's it going? I have a 2010 Camaro 1LT with OnStar, XM radio, USB and the Aux port but no steering wheel controls. I wanted to use your method to install the radio harness and switch then get it programmed from the dealer. My question is, do I need the PDIM everyone is talking about? and will my bluetooth function after programming? If so, where is the mic? or is it the same mic used for the OnStar?

Thanks.

Installed mine over the weekend with help from this thread and this one:http://camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=53852

Before I go to get my PDIM and the steering wheel programmed. Do any of you have the pdf/documentation about programming this? I have a feeling my dealer will have no idea. I already have the PDIM pdf/documentation and would like the one for the steering wheel as evidence so it can be done right.

So far have found this: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showpo...27&postcount=2
Hope that's enough, but please feel free to share any info that might help just in case.

Just wanted to Thank You for the info and pics!! Great upgrade for the camaro.

I read somewhere that you have to change out the onstar module for the bluetooth, is that correct?

Yes. The bluetooth, for phone call, is integrated into the OnStar module. The good news is that adding bt is very easy. The bad news is that it can be a pain getting OnStar to update your account.

Steering controls installed

I got my wiring harness in the mail yesterday and installed my Bluetooth and radio controls on the steering wheel. Everything went smoothly and looks a lot better with controls on both sides of the steering wheel. Money well spent!! My next job is to buy and install the console gauges. Thanks for all the pictures & help!!

I must say that the hardest part of this whole install was removing the airbag. I have installed the switch and the harness and now all I have to do is get the bcm programmed.

Awesome write up, no problems with either install. Hopefully some dealer in the Cleveland area know how to program

Chevy dealer in Conroe, TX charges $250 for programming. $50 for tech support and $100/hr. for 2 hours of labor. Anyone know a place in Houston that has a more reasonable price?

I know!!! By the way I bought my steering controls from you a few months back. At least they look nice in the car but I'm still trying to find a reasonable dealership. Plus no one really knows what I want done even with the bulletin. I feel they're just throwing out numbers hoping I'll bite.
