I have an 04 XE and I want to install an aftermarket stereo that is satellite/ipod ready, but I'm trying to keep the stock steering wheel controls hooked up but everything I've read has said it can only be done with 2000-03 and 05-07. Anybody know a way around this?

No! Looked into this already. I wanted to update to the new Rockford fosgate stereo in my 2003. Here is what I found out.

The controls on the steering wheel are built with resistors. Each function has a different resistance. This change in voltage tells the radio what to do. So unless you are up for redoing the controls it will not work.

However, I think there is an aftermarket controler that goes in between the radio and the controls. It maps out the voltages for you. I am not sure if it automatic or if is manual. I am not sure off hand what the name of it either.
