No they just go out they are little single L E Ds inside radio and controls on the steering wheel. As for the dashboard some of the light can be replaced with bulbs but there is also LEDs in there as well. Hope it helps

Which fuse to change for steering wheel lights and gear shifter lights 2010 ford edge


It's not a fuse , the SJB - smart junction box controls these lights ! This is fords body control module . If the Heater / A/C control panel ,hazard switch ,headlamp switch , message center switch all work, it is not a fuse . The gear shifter I would say the bulb is burnt out . The steering wheel lights could be out because of an open in the clock spring . The clock spring is a device inside the steering column under the steering wheel that keeps your horn , cruise control , radio buttons etc... connected electrically . How cars clock spring works

Why do my seek button, power button and the bluetooth not work


Are these on the radio itself or on the steering wheel? If the radio, you may need to pull the radio fuse (Warning! This will delete any and all saved Bluetooth devices, radio station presets, clock, eq settings, bal and fade settings, etc) and then try it again. If the issue is with the steering wheel controls, and you have an aftermarket radio most often you will need an adapter to connect the new radio to the steering wheel as well as a radio that has that capability.

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

Dash board lights not working


Locate the knob or dial that controls the brightness of the dashboard lights. If the control is not immediately evident, check your owner's manual.

  • 2 Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse.
  • 3 Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights (see How to Fix a Faulty Car Fuse). Replace the fuse if necessary.
    Find the fuse box (see A). It is usually located under the dashboard to the left of the steering wheel, at about knee level. Many cars have additional fuse boxes in the engine compartment. Check your owner's manual or call the dealer for the exact location(s)


  • Open the fuse box cover and locate the blown fuse. There are two ways to find the bad fuse: Look for a fuse with a melted center strip (see B, which shows two types of broken fuses). Or, if you know which device isn't working--for example, the radio--look for the fuse that handles that device. The fuse panel may have labels for each device, or the information may be in your owner's manual.
  • 3 Remove the bad fuse with a fuse puller (a small pair of plastic tweezers that should come with the fuse box). Or use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
  • 4 Check the number on the bottom or side of the bad fuse. This indicates the amperage.
  • 5 Buy a new fuse with the same amperage and push it into the slot in the fuse box with your fingers.

    2004 Silverado 2500HD. Airbag/Steering wheel control issue


    if you have an anti-theft radio option, when you disconnect the battery you disable the radio. there is a code you need to activate so this does'nt happen, but you must do it before you disconnect the battery. by taking the truck to a dealer, he will use the VIN number and the radio serial number to get the reactivation code from the GM tech service computer bank----------just another example of the useless **** GM puts on their vehicles and costs their customers more money and time.

    When driving at night, not all the lights on the steering wheel, cruise control, and radio illuminate. Fuses? How do I know which one?


    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.
