Buttons on the back of the steering wheel

Just bought an R/T Friday, and I walked right out of the dealer without my owners manual. I'm going back in Monday so I will pick it up then. But in the meantime, if somebody would clue me in on what those little buttons are on the back of the steering wheel, I sure would appreciate it.

I don't think you'll get a real owners manual from the dealer. The car should have came with a CD with some info on it. The owners manual is in PDF at dodge.com and you can call them and have them send you the hard copy if you want. IMO The PDF one is easier to find things in.

I think this is what you are asking.
The remote sound system controls are located on the rear
surface of the steering wheel. Reach behind the wheel to
access the switches.
The right-hand control is a rocker-type switch with a
pushbutton in the center and controls the volume and
mode of the sound system. Pressing the top of the rocker
switch will increase the volume, and pressing the bottom
of the rocker switch will decrease the volume.
Pressing the center button will make the radio switch
between the various modes available (AM/FM/SAT/
CD/HDD/AUX/VES, etc.).
The left-hand control is a rocker-type switch with a
pushbutton in the center. The function of the left-hand
control is different depending on which mode you are in.
The following describes the left-hand control operation in
each mode.
Radio Operation
Pressing the top of the switch will “Seek” up for the next
listenable station and pressing the bottom of the switch
will “Seek” down for the next listenable station.
Remote Sound

Call Dodge and they will send you a paper copy of the owners manual. Took 3 days to get mine and it is thick as hell. Very nice to have it in front of you when looking at features.

The buttons on the back of your wheel are your stereo controls. Stations, volume, band, etc.

It takes some time to master those buttons. Kind of like learning how blind people read. You'll change from radio to CD. It is completely different from my Honda commuter car. The sirius channels go by station number up and down in your presets, while my other car goes by preset number up and down. It's kind of a crappy design.

Call me crazy, but I am curious to know which option cars have these buttons? I have an R/T and don't have the front of the steering wheel mount buttons. Why don't I don't have the back of the wheel buttons then?
