  • Help... Steering Wheel Controls

    Hi guys, the last couple of days when going to work the steering wheel control on the left that changes screen between the radio, bluetooth and MPG details doesn't move up or down only selects? After 3-4 mins its fine. It hasn't happened everytime but 3 times in the last 6-7 start ups. Anyone had this problem or got any ideas of what could be causing it?

    EDIT: Warranty is up in January so want to get as much sorted as I can before this runs out.

    Cheers

        Could be the connection behind the control, is there anything else not working?

          Hi mate, I done the CIM Module test by putting the side lights on and pressing the horn but the horn worked

          No mate, everything else seems fine. When I press it to select it works but whenever I move it up or down it doesn't work. Its only for the first 3-4 mins of a journey, but not all the time

                  it will be cim module , ours went the same way then more started playing up.

                  firstly it was just the steering wheel controls not working intermittantly then a few monts later the horn stopped working.

                  and finally the horn started turning the stereo on and off.

                  got cim module changed under warranty and its been fine since.

                      If its that I definitely want that sorting before the warranty runs out. Is it a big job mate? Warranty is up in January so I don't have much time to wait on other things going wrong .

                          nah they are really common , dealership did our cim module in about an hour

                          took then a few days to get the part in tho.

                          i had it in for a service and mentioned the steering control and horn issues and they said they would order a new cim for us no questions asked
