SOURCE: Steering wheel lamps do not work (radio controls, temp, cruise)

The lights on the steering wheel are in the switches. To fix the lights, the whole switch needs to be replaced. Same thing goes for the Tempature Controls and radio. Overall, I think it would be very expensive to replace all of the switches to get the lights working. I have the same vehicle, and almost all of the lights are out.

I think the lights behind the gage controls are replaceable, although you still have to rip out most of the dash to get to them.

I have the auto-sense wipers, so I was leaving the wipers on all the time, and the would only work when needed. The bad part I finally found out about this was that while the wiper switch is on (even though they were not wiping), it caused all of the dash lights, switch lights and rear parking light to be on. I think this alone significantly cut down on the life of the bulb.

For now, I am just living without the lights. The temperature control is very expensive (just the part alone).

You can usually find the best price for these things at http://www.rockauto.com

Click the clock button to the left of the cd slot and then turn the tuning knob to move it forward or back- then click the clock button again to do the minutes and move with tuning knob, then click clock button again to select either 12hour or 24 hour (military time- example 7pm=1900 hrs). the buttons with numbers on them are to save presets on the radio of your favorite stations- just push and hold the number you want it on after you have tuned it in with the tuning knob until it beeps and then it will be in the memory.

How do i set radio stations on a stock 1994 honda civic radio?


Tune to a desired station, choose a preset button and slowly and lightly press it until the display blinks once (you may hear a beep) and the station remains tuned. I always need to do this with the vehicle stopped.

2003 Lexus ES300 How does one save Radio Statio presets? Going to the station and holding the button to save does not work.


Holding the button is supposed to work. This from owner's manual: PRESETTING A STATION:
  1. Tune in the desired station.
  2. Push one of the station selector buttons (1-6) and hold it until a beep is heard. This sets the station to the button and the button number (1-6) appears on the display.
Each button can store one AM station and two FM stations. To change the preset station to a different one, follow the same procedure. The preset station memory is cancelled when the power source is interrupted by battery disconnection or a blown fuse.

Set Radio Station Presets


Try just holding the button of choice down. In my Audi, when I had a factory head unit, to set for example, preset 2, I'd just tune to the station I wanted to program, and then hold down the number 2 preset button until the display stopped blinking. It was then preset.
