Question about 1995 Buick Riviera
Replace the clock spring under steering wheel, if applicable to your vehicle
Posted on May 06, 2010
The controls on the steering wheel control the radio and the heater. I found that the wiring goes from the steering wheel to the radio then to the heater, so if the radio is out of commission then none of it will work. I discovered this on my Riviera after replacing the stock stereo with an aftermarket one to which the steering wheel controls were not attached.

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).
