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!

THIS IS A RADIO PROBLEM, THIS PROBLEM WILL REQUIRE THE RADIO BEING SENT OUT TO AN AUTHORIZED FACTORY ELECTRONICS REPAIR CENTER, THERE IS NO BLOWN FUSE OR THE RADIO WOULD NOT EVEN TURN ON.

SOURCE: steering hand controls for Philips DC479 rds

If you have a aftermarket cd player installed you have to get something called a wireless controller. Basicly it hooks up to you steering wheel controls and you program your remote to you wireless controller and it sends a signle just like your remote when you use the steering wheel controls. Hope this helps, good ratings help me out. Have a good day.

My radio knobs and display stopped working, but the stations can be changed with the steering wheel controls.


Hello Monica Briggs,

I've been into three different "wheel control" sound systems...

One for sure had a SEPARATE FUSE for the radio (FACE versus STEERING-WHEEL) controls...
(that was ... Find THE OPERATED FUSE & replace it).

Two was a SIMPLE RESEAT (unplug/re-plug) of the REMOVABLE face plate...

Three most interesting by far was a STUNNED radio...
Last operated from the steering wheel ... would respond to no inputs (any-source).

Thanks to Bill Gates (BLUE SCREEN of D**TH) training the WORLD on the POWER-RESTART ... We simply disconnected the CAR Battery for a minute... put it back together... set the time & stations.. and pretended we knew what we were doing...

Hope this is at least inspiring... Good luck.


If perchance your vehicle is a popular USA model... look
on the BBB Industries FREE Wiring Diagrams & Technical Service
Bulletins***... (registration required (but well worth it)).

Otherwise search your Model+WORKSHOP+REPAIR+MANUAL
to get your technical specs.

***Bulletins:
BBBind.com is where I found a clogged A/C drain was causing water damage to a HIGH-END Toyota sound system.

Lexus problems


I've had this problem in the past and it's down to 2 possibilities. 1 is the radio controls on the steering wheel sticking or shorting , especially when turning the steering wheel if your automobile has radio controls on the steering wheel. 2 the radio has a shorted circuit board on the back of the radio face.

Turn on the radio and the display will show 'CODE'

Use the Steering Wheel Remote Controls for code entry.

Press the [ ¬] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct first digit
Press the [ ¬] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct second digit
Press the [ ¬] button then rotate the thumb wheel for the correct third digit

From HDD mode on the centre, press menu and select "Station Management".
If the option is available select "Delete Station" and delete any stations listed.
Select "Add New Station" and the unit will start searching.


On the station press menu and select "installation mode"
If this option is not available, try from another source setting, such as AUX.

Once the centre has found the station, press stop on the centre, as the station cannot connect until the centre has stopped searching.

If this doesn't work, you will have to reset both units to factory settings and start again.(Menu -----> Settings ------> Restore)
