SOURCE: steering wheel controls

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament (ribbon type connector), the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

SOURCE: how do I change the light bulb in the steering

Pull the steering wheel buttons straight out of the steering wheel. I used a pick that was shaped like an "L". unplug the the button from the wire on the back of it. There isn't much room to work on it but it can be done. Then take the button appart, and FYI this is not a simple plug a new bulb in project. Find the burnt out bulb and desoder it from the board. Now you have to choose, you can either replace with same filiment type bulb that will burn out again soon or you can try your hand at fitting and sodering an LED in there. It can be done I did it. If you do use an led you need a multi meter to find the electrical current direction. You also must use an resister in line with the LED. You can find these on the web for a dime a dozen, I used 3mm 1500mcd and they came with the resisters (FYI they are too bright, go for a lower mcd like 800-1000). Soder in the light you choose, put back together and replace in the truck and your done. Now show all your friends what you did.

2002 impala the audio controls on the steering wheel stopped working

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
