Possible that the battery within the control unit has failed or gone weak. So remove the unit and replace the battery with the same type and in correct polarity.

SOURCE: steering wheel controls

Replace the clock spring, or check all the cabling and plugs first. If you are inexperienced take it to an auto electrician, otherwise do it yourself but disconnect the negative battery terminal for 2 minutes prior to opening the steering wheel to check the plugs, as not doing so could cause the airbag to go off. In addition you can also take out the airbag fuse. Check radio control plugs and close it up again and reconnect everything in reverse order. If that doesn't fix it, then have the clock spring replaced professionally, its too much mucking around if you don't know what you're doing.

SOURCE: radio controls not working on steering wheel

How about the turn signals, are they working? If not, then pull the fuse for the Steering Wheel Module (SWM) to reset the module. There is software upgrade from Volvo to prevent this in the future!

SOURCE: Cruise control,and radio controls on steering wheel, now air bag

The problem is the coiled ribbon contact under the steering wheel (we call it the clock-spring contact) that connects the stereing wheel controls to the steering column wiring harness, this is a printed circuit that is coiled to allow the wheel to move and still have a psychical contact for the wheel switch's and the airbag, anyway replace that contact coil, u must disarm the airbag to do this repair, follow the factory procedure to do this or serious injury can result if the airbag fires.

SOURCE: Steering wheel controls for stereo do not work

Hi,you will probably find that the contact ring( ribbon) behind the steering wheel is at fault as this is quite a common fault,it consists of a printed circuit ribbon that winds and unwinds inside a plastic housing as the steering wheel is turned left and right,and through time the ribbon can become damaged,However as the steering wheel has to be removed to gain access to the ribbon it is highly recommended that all safety precautions are followed due to the airbag module also having to be disconnected and removed to gain access, I did replace my own one a couple of years ago as my SRS light had been activated by the same fault and is relatively easy to replace if you have some mechanical knowledge,Bill.

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.

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

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

The cruise control in my 2005 Ford Freestar just stopped working yesterday, then this afternoon the radio controls in the steering column stopped working as well


clock spring in the steering column is my guess. They are delicate and have to do with anything in the steering wheel like airbag, horn, or anything that is operated by buttons on the wheel. These wires have to turn constantly with the steering wheel and the "clock spring" goes bad often enough
