The 9843 does not have a direct input for the steering wheel controls. You would need to step up to the 9851 or higher. The 9843 is not even IR remote ready. For that, you would have to go to the 9845 or higher. There is no possible way to make the steering wheel controls work with the 9843, sorry.

Same is true for the AUX input. The 9845 has an AUX input mini jack and the 9847 and up can use the Ai-NET input with a KCA-121B adapter cable for the AUX input. Sorry, but unfortuneately the 9843 is limited.

If it is possible, I would try to take it back and get at least a 9847 (Ai-NET, IR remote, 3 preouts, SAT ready, iPOD ready) that way you can be ready to upgrade in the future as well. The price difference should only be about $40. Not a bad deal for all those extras...

Hope this helps.

So the 9851 will let you use the stock tC steering wheel controls? How do you set that up? Any adapters or fancy wiring required? I was planning on getting the 9847 but if the 51 will let you use those controls, that seems like it would be worth the extra $$.

Yeah i was interested in doing this myself. How would we go about doing that? I wanna maintain my steering wheel controls but the only thing i could find was a "Steering Wheel Interface" by Peripheral Electronics Model: PESWIALP (alpine Units) and PESWIPS (Sony and Pioneer units) The product discription is for installations with units the have a "Wired Remote Input".

Whats your thoughts on the ALPMAN.

I've used the PAC model that Crutchfield sells on a friend's car. The head unit was an Alpine CDM-9830 I believe, and it worked okay. It functions using learned codes from the head unit's remote. There is some wiring involved, and some cars require a resistor to be added to the button circuits, but it was a fairly straightforward install.
