Changing Button Shift to Paddle shift

Hi, I have a 2006 ML63 that was originally fitted with the rocker type buttons on the steering wheel.

I have installed the newer Paddles however have run into a problem.

The old rocker buttons have 3 wires, blue green and red.

The new Paddles only have 2 wires each.

Does anyone know how to wire these up??

Thanks

Actually I liked the rocker switches in my 06 ML500 better than the paddles in my 2010 ML550. With the rockers I could shift up and down with either the rt or left switch with one hand on the wheel without thinking about which switch was up or which was a downshift. But, to answer your question I do not think its possible to change to paddles without installing a new wiring harness that runs up to the switches in your ML

Thanks for the input but im glad to say you are wrong as I have just wired everything up and its working 100 %

This means anyone who has the toggle / rocker buttons on their wheel can hook these up. AMG or not



I have pics of how to wire up everything

Best mod ive done so far!
