    I have the same problem with the steering wheel lights. How do you change out the bulbs?

    There is a fuse for the lights on the steering wheel, however if this fuse is blown they all go out AND the buttons wont work. you cannot just change the bulbs either, you will have to replace the whole button assembly. Each set of buttons on the steering wheel pops out, uplug and replace... Dealer only part.

If half are working, then most likely the other half are simply blown bulbs that just need replaced. A blown fuse would normally cause ALL the lights in that section to go off, not just half.

When I go to put the cruise on it does not light up if i turn the steering wheel half way it will work sometimes but the light goes out again

Sounds like you might have an issue with either your multifunction switch or possibly your clock spring, if your cruse controls are steering wheel mounted.

2004 cadillac escalade reverse lights and backup sensors not working what could be the problem

First check the fuses, one on left side of steering wheel - the other on the left (drivers) side under the hood. Look at the inside of the lids to see what the fuses work on. If fuses are okay, check the ground wires.

What causes sedona steering noisy?

My 2006 sedona 2.9 Diesel LE has a knuckle joint half way between the steering wheel and the steering rack. Reach up from underneath clean and lubricate with fresh grease. This is a common cause of a very sinister noise when turning towards full lock and a much cheaper first step solution than fitting a new steering rack or pump...

The horn is not working over an year and half and changed the relay what next??t

Should have a fuse box under drivers side dash and a fuse box under the hood. I think the horn fuse is under the dash on drivers side. usually 10 amp. I would get a test light and a friend and have the friend push the horn while i held the test light on the horn connector wires. It has two wires a voltage and a ground. If fuse is good but still no power at the horn then check the switch in the steering wheel. You could have a bad "clock spring" or steering wheel switch.

How do you replace a 2007 cheverolet trailblazer steering wheel position sensor

The 2007 and up Avalanche, Escalade, Trailblazer, and other GM trucks changed the design of the bottom of the steering shaft. For no discernible reason, it has a horseshoe cup at the bottom of the shaft that prevents just sliding the old sensor off and putting the new one on like in 2006 and previous models. Therefore the entire steering column has to come out of the truck which is, to say, highly annoying.
Disconnect battery and ground negative lead cable to the frame or leave disconnected for 10 minute to discharge ABS system.

Pull steering wheel ABS cover - 2 small alan wrench holes on either side of the airbag, spring-loaded, pull gently while turning the wrench.

Disconnect both airbag clips (don't lose the retaining clips!) and remove airbag.

Remove lower plastic knee trim (where your knee or shin would touch at the bottom of the kick panel).

Disconnect all steering shaft electrical connectors - there's quite a few.

Under steering column, unbolt upper driveshaft 15mm nut.

Remove 4 16mm steering wheel nuts.

Pull steering wheel out of car, lay on bench.

Remove steering wheel shaft upper protective sleeve (the part that has the horseshoe end shape that prevents the SWPS from sliding off when you're trying to remove it that serves no useful purpose except to turn a 15 minute job into an hour and a half of irritation).

Gently unclip 3 retaining clips of SWPS rear cover (4 o'clock, 7 o'clock, and 12 o'clock on the shaft), slide off, then get a screwdriver in behind the old sensor and gently move it backwards a little so you can get your fingers on it, then slide it off.

Put new sensor on exactly the way the old one was on. Note, DO NOT remove pin until this assembly is back in the car and connected to the electrical harness.

Slide SWPS cover back onto shaft but do not clip into place.

Put steering wheel back in car, connect all bolts and wire harnesses.

Remove pin.

Re-install plastic cover.

Start car, drive to dealership, hook up to Tech 2 and have them run the full SWPS re-learn procedure, which they will probably charge you an hour of labor for anyway, then take your half hour of saved labor money and go buy yourself lunch.

Alternately, save several hours of cursing, make a turkey sandwhich at home to save eating out lunch costs, and let dealer do the whole thing.

My 2006 Cadillac Escalade has a "service ride control" light on. Also, the air ride does not inflate. What could be causing it to not work?

Check the air ride's fuse first. You should hear the pump running when you turn the key on, the pump is under the body of the Escalade.

Streering wheel will flop around 360d after the Tilt section, goodyear says clock spring, but cant find a clock spring in any manual I read. Truck is a 95 F150 Supercab 4wd 5.8l. Tilt, cruise, and a...

The "clock spring" is a slang term used to describe the round electrical contact below the steering wheel inside the steering column, that transfers the switch contacts in the steering wheel to the actual vehicle. Your problem is more than likely the bearing in the top half of the steering column. Disconnect the battery and remove the air bag and steering wheel nut, steering wheel, and electrical switches, then look at the mechanical bearings or bushings at the steering shaft and case unit, the problem should be visible at this point. Hope this helps, let me know.

Tail lights and dash lights are not commin on. back up lights brake lights and turn signals all still work. I think it has something to do with some type of switching device for the day time running...

It sounds like you may have blown a fuse the tail lights and dash lights are usually on the same fuse. Do you have the owners manual? That will show you where the fuse boxes are located and which fuse does what. If you find a blown fuse and it blows another one right away, there's a problem in the wiring. You'll have to get it checked bt a mechanic.
