this pic above is the ring opened and preped for install.
if you notice i have an eye-let attached to black.
add a fuse to red
and a connector on blue.

all tools supplies you will need are:
wire crimps/strippers
to wire connecters (the red ones you will see in pics later)
one eye-let connector
one add a fuse wire
male and female connector (to make a wire longer)
phillips screw driver
flat head screw driver

okay first picture shows all 4 parts you have to remove.
note all parts just pull right off except the steering column
cover. if you look at the pics. you will see two holes on the
bottom of steering column. these two holes have phillips head
screws in them along with another one by the steering wheel
adjuster. is is right above the handle where you adjust the
steering wheel. so total you have 3 phillips head screws.

now you have to remove the tray on the bottom.
if you look on the bottom of the tray you will see
a twist knob on the far left side (closest to the door)
the other side is just a snap.
look at the pic above and you will see what it looks like from the top.
this knob holds the tray in.
twist it pull it down so the other side unsnaps and its off.

now we go back to the steering column.
this is made up of two peices.
top and bottom.
i pulled them apart by getting a small skinny screw driver
and putting a rag over it.
i stuck the screw driver with the rag in the headlight hole and in the
wiper hole. just pull the driver up towards the sky and the top will
unclip from the bottom. like so.

now make sure you release your steering wheel ajuster. (open it so that the steering wheel can go back and forth up and down.
pull it out all the way and down. now remove the top.

now keep the wheel all the way out but lift it this time all the
way up. remove the bottom peice make sure your carefull. you have to guide it through the lever.

now you have everything off.

now we can begin to connect the wireing
but first you have to locate the connectors and color wires that you
need to splice into.

okay lets get the wires on the key ring
you have red,black,yellow and blue.

red is 12v constant
black is ground
yellow is switched by ignition.
we will be hooking this one up to
gray wire.
blue is door lock unlock
we will be hooking this one up to
the brown wire with silver spots.

okay lets start with the igniton switch.
look at the pics and look for the silver wire.
this is the one to hook up to.

now that we have the silver hooked. don’t worry if you hear the door bell
chime. this means it’s working and you have the right wire.

now lets move to the ground.
i put it here.

this picture above also shows a good view of the yellow attched
to the gray.

now we can move onto the red.

with the add a fuse your basically in control.
you can put it just about anywhere in your fuse box.
this is why i picked this method.
i hooked it up here.

alright now we are almost done
all we have left is the blue wire.

and on the bottom left hand corner.
look at the pics. i have multiple pics with different
angles so don’t get confused.
look at my pics and look for the brown wire with silver

wire to it.

also a side note the blue wire was the only wire i had to extend.

okay so here are pics connected.

now you can put everthing back together in the same process but

the only thing i have to add is one thing. when putting the steering wheel
peices back on there is a trick to it.
look at the pic

this is a pick with the bottom on and the top off. pic is from the top of the steering column.
look at the right and left side top of steering column opening. do you see
the rectangular holes? i hope you do.
it is very improtant you put the top cover on hooks first or it won’t
clip on properly.

so there you have it.

so here are a few pics when it’s on.
