Under the steering wheel is a coiled contact ribbon that connects all the steering wheel controls to the electrical system of your car. The circuit has broken for the volume control most likely and you will need to have the dealer diactivate the airbag system and pull the steering wheel and replace the clockspring ribbon coiled contact drum.

    That is a symptom of a bad clock spring.

SOURCE: radio controls not working on steering wheel

How about the turn signals, are they working? If not, then pull the fuse for the Steering Wheel Module (SWM) to reset the module. There is software upgrade from Volvo to prevent this in the future!

SOURCE: volume control knob on radio turns volume up at all times

first of all if you live in a cold climate I never turn the radio on until the car warms up if you can remove the knob on the radio spray a light amount of WD 40 and then put the knob back on and turn it back and forth and if you have pop on your hand or water also dry your hands off before touching the radio the lights and the radio will last a lot longer also and also before leaving the car always remember to turn the radio off it will be alot easier on your battery as well

SOURCE: 2005 honda odyssey radio controls on the steering

there is a service bulletin about this. the steering wheel has to be removed along with the switch gear. then the steering shaft ring that makes contact for these controls while the wheel is being turned need to be gently dimpled to make better contact. if the dimples are too extremem the whole steering column will need replaced.

it could be your clockspring; it carries multiple electrical signals to and from the steering wheel (audio controls, horn, airbag). the wheel has to be removed to gain access to it for replacement, but it can be tested without removal. the easiest way to test it is with a diagnostic tool

there could be a broken wire in the steering wheel which would mean possibly having to remove the steering wheel but there will be an air bag that could go off which would be dangerous so its best left to the professionals unless you know exactly what you are doing as regards taking off steering wheels.
