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).

Most likely the reason behind that is your new cd player will not support that function. Your original cd player built for your car was engineered to mesh perfectly with all the buttons in your car and when you install an aftermarket radio into your car it just isn't capable of controlling all the features(steering wheel controls) that the original was built for.
You may be able to find an aftermarket cd player for suited for your car with the capabilities that you desire.
