    2012 Soul Base Standard
    I know this is an old thread but I wanted to add my two cents on the validity of the topic and resolution. Today, in about 20 minutes, I uninstalled my 2012 factory base steering wheel, transferred the airbag, and installed a used 2013 wheel with buttons and now have cruise and wheel control from my stereo. Like others, i do not have cruise indicator on the dash but the functions are competent. I did notice that on my radio controls, the up selector seems dead. I can skip downward through my presets, not up which I assume is a faulty up switch in my purchased wheel. Not a game changer since radio control was just an added bonus to getting cruis in my 2012 Base for $74.

    Next week i add keyless entry!

    Definitely a switch problem. Mine have worked fine for 6 years since doing this swap.

    2019 M/T base
    Parts needed are the same for all Gen 2, about $70 (local dealer gave reduced price due to recent new vehicle purchase)
    Ordered parts last Monday, picked up and installed last Wednesday.
    37 MPG (tires inflated to max rating by mfg) on Death Valley trip last Thursday.

    45 minutes is a comfortable time allotment
    A 3/6" drift punch worked easily for me to remove air bag.
    Noting the wire colors beforehand made re-connection easy.

    "CRUISE" and "SET" both display in instrument panel
