1997 SL1
1995 SC2
Question Will a 2002 Steering wheel with cruise work in a 97 with cruise?

I just got a 1997 SL1 with all the options. (including cruise) I was wondering if anyone swapped in a 3rd gen steering wheel? I like the 3rd gen wheel better (mainly because the horn is in the middle.) I was just wondering if anyone had really good pictures of the cruise connectors and airbag connectors. I was hoping it is a simple plug and play swap. lol.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Will a 2002 Steering wheel with cruise work in a 97 with cruise?

If i remember correctly It is the same module, HOWEVER i don't think the cruise is the same, I could be wrong. It's easier to cut a small hole with an utility knife and mount the external switch.

I think it will bolt up, but won't be plug and play. Horn is different, I think, but with a little splicing can be made to work (ditto w cruise). You will also want to do some research on the airbag modules, dunno if 3rd gen was different.

Spending a little time at the JY will let you know about the connectors

I was wondering if the clock spring would plug up and then make most things plug-n-play. I will most likely go out and get one and see what I need to do, but I was hoping someone tackled this before me, lol.

The 1997 and the third generation s cars have different steering shafts. The 97 has 2 flats on it(keyed so to speak) and the 3rd generations have a splined shaft,also keyed, I don't think it will work. Maybe if you changed the whole shaft, but that's more work than I'd do.

Thanks for the correction.

I vaguely recall having this being mentioned before (now that you mentioned it) but found some threads that implied otherwise. I thought I saw something on a saturnwiki but couldn't find it just now

Interestingly, it looks like Saturn removed the threaded holes for pullers sometime in 2000

Neat information. I will be going to my local pull-a-part soon, so I will try to swap them around there and see what happens. Thanks for all the help. I figured they would of changed the steering columns some to make it not work.

The thing to do some serious research on is the air bag. Your '97 car has the first-generation high-power air bags. The gen-3 wheel will have a second-generation de-powered air bag. You need to determine whether your SDM will fire that air bag properly.
