There is no replaceable bulb in the illuminated switches on a steering wheel. There is no room inside the button for a bulb, and such a bulb would create so much heat, that it would melt the assembly The illumination LED is integrated into the switch circuitry. The only way to fix it is to relace the switch assembly.
You don't. Junk the car.
There are a series of wires that run from the steering wheel controls to the radio. An electronic circuit could be used, to combine several controls into fewer wires.
The cruise and radio switches do not share a common fuse.
your steering wheel radio controls are bad disconnect and your radio will come on.
My 1989 has them. I love this feature.
I believe the only way to fix this would be to replace the steering wheel with one from from a junker car. I don't think the controls are available to purchase individually and you would need to take the wheel apart to replace them in any case. Do what I did with my Bonny, live with it (much cheaper)
You need to buy and replace the switch. The switch is removed bu using a small flathead screwdirver, and simply prying it out of its hole on the steering wheel. Disconnect the wires, connect to the new switch and replace the switch in it's hole.
I recently replaced the factory radio in my 1999 EB Explorer and, while the new radio had a CD player in it, I lost the use of the 6 CD changer in the armrest. Also, if you have steering wheel controls or rear seat controls, you may need to also install an add on, assuming the radio has an infrared remote control, to enable these controls. I also did this and it works reasonably well.I used Crutchfield and they are very helpful in answering questions you may have - you should try that email@example.com
It doesn't control anything. It is the connection for the cruise switches, horn switch, radio controls(if equipped) and airbag that allow the steering wheel to turn and there to still be a connection.
If the steering wheel has radio controls on the wheel, there could be a problem in the wiring. When the wires connect electrically it will cause stations to change.
You have to replace the whole button.
From new they would have been controls for the radio. Volume, Station, Cd/Radio, etc. I
More tahn likely the clockspring needs replaced.

no u can look at your car manual and it tells u what fuse is for what i change fuese on my car all the time and i never see something the has to do with steering so no
The clockspring under the airbag is not connected or needs to be replaced! also the cruse control and radio controls in the steering wheel are probably not working
Go to Crutchfield.com and use the outfit my vehicle feature, if there is an interface available to adapt the steering wheel controls it would be there, also if you buy the head unit there the wiring harness adapter and dash kit are free so no cutting into the factory wiring. If it is too confusing use the phone number for a consultant and they will find what you need.
There are a variety of steering wheels that are available for Cadillacs and they serve many functions. An individual may purchase a steering wheel with radio controls, cell phone control, or a simple traditional steering wheel.
if there's one when you open up the passengers door then its that one.
The steering wheel controls are probably bad The only fuse is the radio fuse and if the radio works the fuse is OK Also if you do not have the original stereo, and your new stereo does not have a place to plug in those controls they will not work.
If u mean steering wheel controls you need a patch lead .
replace the whole steering wheel cause once the buttons have melted??...they wont work anyway.
