Still Doesn't Work?

If you have bought a paddleshift steering wheel and the paddles don't work, it could be the wiring.

Smart altered the wiring when they face-lifted the 451 in September 2010. If you fit a pre facelift wheel

to a post facelift car or vice-versa, it will not work until you swap the 2 wires over.

How Do I Know Which Wheel I have?

Time to break out the multimeter and get testing. The connections are the same betwewen the 2 except
for the paddles so put your multimeter on resistance checking and put the probes on pins 5 and 10 and look
at the readout on the multimeter. If you get about 8kΩ then they are the correct pins. If you get no reading,
place the probes on pins 8 and 9 and you should see the 
8kΩ show up on the multimeter.

Remember what 2 pins your paddles where using. Probably best to write it down.

So, depending on the age of your car, you may need to change the wiring of the steering wheel to match your car.
