Steering Wheel Control Repair Hamilton

Not that long along the only button on your steering wheel was the horn, however, most vehicles these days have control buttons on the steering wheel for you to control things like the radio volume, answer your phone, the AC, cruise control, etc.

If any or all of the control buttons stop working this can adversely affect your driving experience.

In this article, we will discuss what could be causing the buttons to stop working and what you should do about it.

Why Are My Steering Wheel Controls Not Working?

There are a few different reasons why the steering wheel controls can stop working properly, including:

  • The Buttons are Stuck or Broken – Sometimes the buttons can become stuck or break and then stop working. This is usually the result of normal wear and tear. When this happens the buttons will need to be replaced and sometimes more in-depth repairs will be required.
  • Faulty Clock Spring – A clock spring is a circular electrical connector component located inside the steering wheel. When you turn the steering wheel the clock spring ensures the buttons/ controls are still connected properly and work. If this component becomes faulty the buttons will stop working. When this happens, you’ll have to get your mechanic to inspect the clock spring and if it is faulty they can fix it or replace it for you.
  • Blown Fuse – Sometimes a fuse that powers the buttons can blow which will stop the control buttons from working. When this happening it will need to be replaced by your mechanic.
  • Other Electrical Problems – Depending on your specific make and model of vehicle it could also be caused by a problem with one or more of the electrical components within your vehicle. Sometimes this can simply be fixed by resetting the car’s computer which your mechanic can do for you.

What Should I do If My Steering Wheel Control Buttons Stop Working?

The best thing to do is book your car in with your local mechanic. They will then be able to do a full diagnostic check of all of the relevant components to find out what the cause of the problem is. As long as they have the relevant tools and experience, they should then be able to fix the problem for you.
