Adding redundant steering controls

I have a 2012 F250 XLT that I added redundant controls by replacing steering wheel with new one that came with the correct harness and switch and had the dealer turn on the controls and they don't work. I have the base instrument cluster without sync or sat radio do I need to install something else or have something re flashed I thought I read a thread that I could swap out the wheel and have the dealer turn them on in the radio. Any help from people that have done this would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have done a little research on this it sounds like I have to have the radio re flashed for this to work? Just wondering if anyone has done this or had it done on their truck?

I did this also, I went to a leather wheel. I plan on putting in a factory nav radio so the radio should already be setup for steering wheel controls. im not sure if the standard radio could be programmed for the wheel controls.

Had the dealer look at it today and the tech that I used to work there with looked at it for me said it needed a different clockspring. So I ordered one today will be in tomorrow and hopefully I can get to install it sometime this weekend and see if it works.

No luck on this issue yet replaced the clockspring had them look at it again went and picked it up and they didn't say anything. Sounds like it can't be done on a truck that didn't have it or they don't know how to do it. Not happy about putting a $100 clockspring in that the told me what it needed. So I think I'm going to abandon this project for now unless someone had this done to a 2012 XLT and had success?

Just to update this issue never got it to work cost to much money and the dealer didn't seem to know how to get it to work. So traded the truck in for a 2014 F-350 Lariat and got everything that I wanted and more for $13 a month more and my insurance went down $13 a month.
