Gen 2 T4 Steering Wheel Controls

Recommended Posts

My T4 (2006) which I bought recently has the navigation and phone controls on the steering wheel, which obviously have no function (except the INFO button which I find very handy for flicking between the consumption and energy screens).

I have noticed that the T4 generally does not have these buttons, are there any other T4 owners out there whose cars have them?

I also wonder if any Toyota or third-party bluetooth kit could utilise the controls. Though I guess the dealer would be the first port of call there.

There's a bit about this for the current model at 2010 Prius T4 Voice Recogition How! . May be of some use, as the voice control is very similar between the Gen II and Gen III models.

If it came from a main dealer then indeed ask them because the phone and sat nav were only available on the T Spirit. I assume you checked the history - its not a cat c/d car is it? Thats the only way I can think that a T Spirit standard steering wheel has ended up in a T4 unless someone in Japan was having a really bad day 4 years ago!

If it is the latter then you have what in the stamp world would be a collectors item. I'm doubtful though that the same kind of interest would be there for a car with a part it shouldn't have!

All you should have is the info, radio and temperature controls.
