These steering wheel lights are usually sealed units, much like radio backlights. They can be repaired, but they have to be sent out for service, which means removal of the steering wheel, etc.
Speak to your dealer about the cost of such a service, your options, and their recommendations.

SOURCE: Night time illumination on switch's and steering wheel.

This is by design. The cruise, lock and window switches do not light up on your Ranger. I thought they might until I checked a wiring diagram. The switches do not have an illumination circuit to them.

The audio controls on steering wheel don't work - although the cruise control does


Have you checked the connection under the air bag on the steering wheel but you must remember to disconnect the battery leads then leave the car for 30 minutes for the air bag to discharge before doing that I would pull the radio out from the dashboard and check all the multi plugs on the back of it first there are normally a fuse for multifunctional steering wheel control just check make sure you tested the right fuse

Should the steering wheel cruise controls light up at night along with the dash lights? I had a Ford contour and cruise control, window controls, locks, everything lit up.


Yes they should light up at night, the source of the problem is either the tiny miniature bulbs are burned out or the Rotating contact ribbon (known as the Clock Spring) under the steering wheel is defective and the lights are not getting any power.

I lost all power to the steering wheel components,


Your issue is most likely the clock spring which is part of the air bag system.

All of the signals controlling these functions are routed through the clock spring.

Should cost around 200-300 to have it done, or more like 100-150 if you do it yourself. You must know what you are doing though as the airbag system is not to be taken lightly.
