That will work, BUT the VOICE and HOOK On/Off Switch buttons are tapped in to AU2 also. Meaning you will lose the VOICE and Hook On/Off buttons.
But what do I know, I only have a degree in the electronics field.

Biggest problem I see is you have 1 wire functioning for multiple switches. If you splice this in you're going to lose functionality to other switches. I don't see an easy wiring work-around. I could be wrong

I already explained how I would do it on the previous page.

Not correct. Yes in that one wire(AU2) runs up to the steering wheel controller switches, BUT from there splits in to the 4 switches(MODE, Hook On, Hook Off, and Voice). How I would do this is access the MODE switch itself, and cut that wire leading to it(the other 3 switches would still work). This is going by the documents posted, I would still have to crack the units open to actually see and be positive. And to be honest, I really don't care to have MODE switch set to Sport mode, so I doubt I will even take my steering wheel and dash apart. But if anyone else manages to experiment on their car and post photos, I'm willing to help or give advice.

thread bump,
So this is all great on paper, and looks like it will work.

Has anyone successfully done so?

I'm tempted to try to tackle this when I have time.

I'm looking into remote start options since I got the major hookup on wiring locations from an installer.(saves me so much time researching every friggin wire)
while I'm doing that I'll look into modifying Pins as well.

Essentially you use the circuit that is there for the radar cruise control. If you have that option you shouldn't rewire it.

I tapped into the harness where the radar cruise control ECU would have been plugged into, then ran a wire over to the Sport button and tapped in there. This maintains the functionality of the stock button as well.

I don't have much time but will try to write something up in the next couple of months and post it.
Based on your solution I will be doing the same. I have ordered 2013 buttons from megazip (less than $200). Thank you for the inspiration!
