Question about 2006 Chevrolet Equinox LT
Steering wheel light turns on, but will not set.
The light means the system is powered so the fuse is probably OK. I am not sure about this particular car but there is usually some measure of self test involved as well so it makes me think there may be a mechanical problem. Many systems use a vacuum device to actually adjust the throttle so a loss of vacuum such as a cracked line or a hole in the actuator could be the problem. On my Dodge truck the actuator lives beneath the battery so they frequently corrode a hole and no longer work. One last possibility is the linkage from the actuator to the throttle could be broken or jammed. Good luck!

Removal & Installataion
Exploded view of the shroud-type steering column showing shrouds, wiring and multifunction switch that includes the headlamp function
NOTE The abrasion sleeve located on the steering column wire harness assembly must be reinstalled. Make note of what connector is coming out of the abrasion sleeve for installation purposes.
NOTE Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
CAUTION Be sure that the electrical contact of the turn signal and multifunction switch assembly (2) rests on the turn signal cancel cam assembly.
CAUTION The abrasion sleeve must be installed back onto the steering column wire harness assembly. The ignition lock cylinder case wires and connector must be hanging out of the middle of the abrasion sleeve.

i just had the same problem, it started after having to get a "jump start" for a low battery. after checking the fuse(under the hood #43) I disconnected the battery for about 60 seconds to let the computers reset. works fine now. don't know the original cause of the low battery, or the fault but don't want to pay the dealer service charge for doing the same thing...hope this helps ..billy
