2011 1LS w/ SS steering wheel

Hi guys,

I posted this in the electronics and audio page too, but it seems like this one gets more traffic

Just purchased a 2011 1LS (after having a 2012 2LS for a year and selling it to get a silverado to blend in more to the town I moved to, but I moved back to the city and wanted my Camaro back!)

The previous owner had installed a SS steering wheel and there is a problem with the steering wheel controls now. I bought it knowing this after haggling the price down due to it.

The left side of the wheel works (cruise control buttons) but the right side of the wheel (the radio, phone, and volume buttons) do not work.

Is this an issue of a bad install and I could go get it fixed or do I just need to live with it?

It sounds like the previous owner never brought it to the dealership to have the BCM (body control module) reprogrammed. It needs to be done so the BCM knows there's radio/phone inputs to pay attention to. Or if the BCM was reprogrammed, then something in the steering wheel control is broke, or not installed correctly.
