Need help with radio controls on steering wheel

I have an 88 gta with radio controls on the steering wheel. I picked up a newer delco stereo to put in the car (I can post pics later).

I need to find out what wires control the stereo and what the plug looks like so I can search the bone yards.

A picture of the rear of the factory delco with plugs installed will be really helpfull.

Thank you in advance, Tony.

Re: Need help with radio controls on steering wheel

I've done a LOT of research on these radios since I have restored my 88 GTA back to original. There were only 2 radios used in the Pontiacs in only 2 of the years 88 and 89. These were the Delco Loc (Not the Delco Loc 2) GTA's, Bonneviles and the 6000 STE's had them. One model is 16062322 and the other 1606**** (I'll find that note later which was the same radio with the Bose installed)

In 1990 the communication protocol was changed for the steering wheel controls. The 1988 and 89 colors were orange and blue/black
In 1990 the colors were 2 green an one purple/white.

I have a 16062322 and the steering column components (turn signal switch and cancel cam) and the steering wheel control pad for sale.

OK, I found my note on these things, the 16062322 is the model number for the cassette player and the 16067693 is the model number for the radio assembly.

Re: Need help with radio controls on steering wheel

Hey red, do you know anybody that can service these parts? My radio started dragging with all tapes and my switches got freaky. I got good switches off the auction site several years ago but never did get a new cassette.

Regards,

Ron.
