Radio/Horn pad question

Hey Everyone,

I have a 88 GTA and the radio controller on the steering wheel does not work. It turns out that the pad is not plugged in.
From what I can tell, the turn signal switch and cancel cam were replaced with non-radio ones by a previous owner.

Do you guys think that I'm correct here?

I found a turn signal switch, but no luck on a cam yet.
Can anyone tell me where the radio actually plugs into? Does it plug into the cancel cam?

Re: Radio/Horn pad question

It is a special switch & cancel cam. The switch is available from
Classic Industries SW1520 $105.00. The switch has 4 or 5 spring
loaded posts which make contact with metal rings on the cancel cam. I have not found a source for the cancel cam. The switch and
cancel cam are specific for the 1988 GTA with steering wheel
radio controls. GM changed the design after 88. It may be possible
to find one off a modified 88 GTA.
