It's easy to explain, but may be tough to follow.


Basically, computer keyboards have very thin momentary switches for each character. I took an old keyboard, cut one of these thin switches out. and soldered a wire to each side of the switch. Once i had the wires in place, i just mounted it under the button on the steering wheel.


The momentary switch is just a circuit interupt. You don't hook up a power and a ground wire to it. Just one...and it completes the circuit only when it is pressed.

understand?
