2004 chevy truck radio control on steering wheel


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.

Play in stering linkage


The most common of all problems in a steering system is excessive steering wheel play. Steering wheel play is normally caused by worn ball sockets, worn idler arm, or too much clearance in the steering gearbox. Typically, you shou Id not be able to turn the steering wheel more than 1 1/ 2 inches without causing the front wheels to move. If the steering wheel rotates excessively, a serious steering problem exists.

An effective way to check for play in the steering linkage or rack-and-pinion mechanism is by the dry-park test. With the full weight of the vehicle on the front wheels, have someone move the steering wheel from side to side while you examine the steering system for looseness. Start your inspection at the steering column shaft and work your way to the tie-rod ends. Ensure that the movement of one component causes an equal amount of movement of the adjoining component.

Watch for ball studs that wiggle in their sockets. With a rack-and-pinion steering system, squeeze the rubber boots and feel the inner tie rod to detect wear. If the tie rod moves sideways in relation to the rack, the socket is worn and should be replaced.

Another way of inspecting the steering system involves moving the steering components and front wheel BY HAND. With the steering wheel locked, raise the vehicle and place it on jack stands. Then force the front wheels right and left while checking for component looseness.

Looking for touch up paint or solution for rust around wheel well


You need to remove all of the rust with a grinder then a wire wheel. Treat the rust with rust with a rust coating this will turn it black. Visit your local FinishMaster store and get the right code of paint, these guys are great and will steer u in the right direction

Key will come out but steering wheel is not lock in place so car can still start without key.


Need to start with your shifter. If your shift is not locked into park the wheel will not lock. If thats not it its a key switch or a clock spring in the stering wheel.

Cruise control,and radio controls on steering wheel, now air bag


The problem is the coiled ribbon contact under the steering wheel (we call it the clock-spring contact) that connects the stereing wheel controls to the steering column wiring harness, this is a printed circuit that is coiled to allow the wheel to move and still have a psychical contact for the wheel switch's and the airbag, anyway replace that contact coil, u must disarm the airbag to do this repair, follow the factory procedure to do this or serious injury can result if the airbag fires.
