Ok, so I know of 2 major modules to keep the steering wheel controls with a aftermarket deck, PAC and Axxess aka Metra. My question is with the deck I'm looking at (SoundStream VIR-7355) it does not have a 3.5 jack in the back of it for a wired remote that I can find. So does this mean I have to use the Pac universal one? And if so where would you guys mount the "infared emitter" at? Thanks in advance, and here is the wire diagram of the stereo just to make sure I'm not over looking something.

As far as I know from when I was researching this.....

If your deck does not have a plug for a remote, then you cannot have steering wheel controls. That is, unless you use the infrared thing. Sounds like a PITA to me.

Why are you set on this HU?

I'm set on it because of the cost... I can get it super cheap and it has a lot of good features on it. And please excuse my ignorance what do you mean "PITA".

"Pain in the ass" I just looked at the pdf for the axxess, it doesnt look like you can use that headunit. I would go with a pioneer or something, they are fairly cheap on amazon, and good quality.
SoundStream VIR-7355 = $345 on amazon.

Pioneer avhp3100dvd = $279.00 on amazon.

So does anybody have any ideas where to mount the infrared thing from the PAC universal kit?
