*If you are not comfortable removing your airbag use a professional* This is how I added steering wheel radio controls to my 2009 Silverado. This will work on 2007 - 2013 Silverado Sierra Tahoe and Yukon. It is not hard if you take your time. I have listed the part numbers below. So much better with volume control on the steering wheel(How lazy, Right?!) If you have questions post them in the comments. Thanks for watching.....

Here's a tear down on how an airbag sensor works. An airbag sensor is responsible for detecting sudden deceleration in a collision. It sends a signal to the airbag computer which use the vehicle speed, yaw, seat belt and ECU to determine if an airbag should deploy in a crash. There's two types of mechanical airbag sensors, the cam type and ball and tube style. The ball and tube style of airbag sensor consists of a ball, in a tube, held to one side by a magnet. When the sensor experiences shock, the ball is dislodged from the magnet and strikes the terminals of a switch, sending a signal to the central SRS computer. The cam type of airbag sensor, explained in this video, uses the momentum of a pivoting cam on its own axis of rotation to strike a switch terminal completing the circuit. A diagnostic resistor is wired in parallel in all sensors. This is for the SRS computer to perform a self check at startup to ensure all sensors are present and operational. This video explains the differences between sensor types and shows how to access and replace your sensor on a Toyota Camry. Procedure will be very similar for other vehicles, as the sensors are usually bolted to the radiator cradle around the headlight area. It also goes into a tear down of an actual airbag sensor, where you can see the little cam mechanism and switch strike terminals. The latest high tech airbag sensors use Micro-electrical Mechanical systems, or MEMs to sense acceleration. Since they're machined or etched into silicon directly, the sensor footprint can be much smaller, in the range of micro-meters.
Follow along while I change the steering wheel (and remove the airbag) on my 2007 Suburban. Process would be the same for the Tahoe, Silverado, Yukon, Sierra, Escalade, Avalanche, and many other GM vehicles from the mid 2000s up.
