Is it anyway you can make it a little bit larger I can't understand it because it's all to small, I've tried to make it bigger but still can't understand. Again this was for the 98 buick regal steering wheel audio control

I will try to send in in a larger zoom and I will make another file with a different screen shot program. That is about the best I can do. If you have a photo editor that is the best to open and get it larger, but there is a limit as it does get grainy. Sorry it did not come out right. So, there will be two files of the same diagram attached.

Hey no problem man thanks for the help. What about this if you have the diagram and you have a better view what color wire is it for the audio steering wheel control wire? I was going to turn the factory radio on and cut the wires 1.1 til the steering wheel audio control stops working and see if I can find out that way.

The right controls are a connections so it goes from a color to a color as follows;

yellow connected to grey
Light Green connected to White
Grey and Balck are interior lights

Left side controls
Black from right control
White
Grey and black for interior lights

Okay, I know what you are looking for now.
You will look for a yellow wire that comes of of fuse #2A and splits off and goes to radio and the other goes to steering wheel. That is one. Then the other wire from radio is Dark Blue and connects to Light Green. You may not even see the connector for the dark blue to light green nor does it matter. These are the only two wires that actually have control over radio functions.

Our service manuals, at least the one that I have access to, does not have vent door vacuum routing diagrams.
Try asking the question on the FREE forum and I am sure you will get a response.
I can't really answer more than one topic per thread anyway.
