X5 factory stereo steering wheel control bypass

Hi guys , does anyone have any tips on bypassing or shutting off the stereo controls on steering wheel. I have an obvious short in the wiring. When i turn the wheel to the left my radio shuts off and enters phone mode. When i turn the wheel back to the right the radio turns back on. In a perfect world i could drive on a road that constantly veers right and this would be a non-issue. Since that is not a possibility has anyone had to do this to have any tips on how to. All other controls work fine, heated steering wheel and cruise control. When the radio works the volume and tuning functions work. I have looked on YouTube and the radio is very easily removed but cant find anything on the steering wheel.
