Hi, i have the same kind of Ardeo and this is how the steer matic shift works.
Stop vehicle and shift gear lever to DRIVE position then press on the steermatic shift button and M will high light above the top of the semi auto shift high lighter to show that you are in the steering wheel gear shift manual mode.At this point you can use the down shift buttons on the front part of the steering and the up shift buttons on rhe rear side of the steering.the down shifted or up shifted gear will high light on the dash.if you want to boot back to semi or automatic drive press steermatic button again.ENJOY YOUR DRIVE

Usually when it works, then doesn't. Then you shut off power and turn it on and it works again. It is a module. Yours would be the steering module. These are the hardest problems to diagnose(any of the computers on the car can do this). You just spent too much for someone telling you every thing is OK. But not really. Now comes the electrical part. Checking everything from the switch to the computer and making sure it is good.

My toyota hooter is not making contacts on the steering wheel


If you have airbags your spirel on your steering can be broken. It has a roled up flex pc inside that let the current flow from the hooter cover to the steering colum. On the older models they used a hooter pin that get worn and needs replacement.

I have a 2005 toyota prius, with the key panic button the horn sound but when I press the horn on the steering wheel the horn is dead, what is it a relay, contacts?


This is likely due to a defective horn contact under the steering wheel called the clock spring ribbon rotating contact drum. You must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel (requires special tools) to replace the contact.

Replace steering wheel of toyota corolla 1990 model


The steering shaft has splines that allow the steering wheel to be positioned correctly with the front wheels.
Try tapping behind the streering wheel with a hammer to loosen so you can pull the steering wheel off.
If this does not work then you need a wheel puller to pull the steering wheel off the steering shaft.

1985 Toyota Pickup Horn


Probably the switch in the steering wheel, or fuse, but usually horn fuse works other things too such as cig lighter or radio. If everything else is working fine, then to troubleshoot you'll need a testlight. I would start with the wiring harness where the steering collumn plugs in and decipher which wire is the horn wire. Put the test light clip on +power, then check the wires on the collumn side one by one, pushing the horn button on each one. The horn switch is the wire that makes the light blink when you push the button. If you try all the wires and none make the light blink, then its probably a problem with the horn switch in the s. wheel. Does it have an after market steering wheel? Because aftermarket wheels often have crappy horn switches in them. Also could be a horn relay if it has one. If you listen carfully while pushing the horn, you should hear the relay faint clicking. If you hear this, then the switch is working, but the relay might not be. Follow the sound to find it if you hear it. Test all sides of the relay with your light. Should get power constant on one term, and the other two should light when the horn button is pushed. Hope this helps. Cheers.
