    Default steering wheel controls

    o.k. here goes...... I've got a 2004 54 plate 1.8 sxi pre face lift veccy. it has the steering wheel with the thumb scrollers so it must be full canbus. it has the cd30 radio and a small rectangular display. the thing is......the thumb scroller on the left hand side of the steering wheel doesn't do anything, it doesn't seem to have a purpose. the display shows time, temp and radio station. is this right or should it do more? and why have a scroller on the steering wheel that doesn't do anything?

    From memory, the scroller on the left is for volume control and select function.

    If it does not work, then it sounds like it is not connected up..

    If you undo the small torx screw at the rear of the steering wheel spoke, you can then pull the switch unit from the spoke..
    There should be a small blue connector plugged in at the top of the wheel boss, close to the air-bag squib..

    Check to see if it has been un-plugged somehow...

    Regarding the display,
    It will show radio station, or CD track number / track name along with
    time, temperature and if the radio is turned off it will show the date...

    Pressing BC will give "No Function" ...

    could the left hand scroll button be doing nothing because the BC button on the radio has no function?

    could i swap my radio & screen for another radio & big screen to obtain the in car computer functions (or is that function stored somewhere else in the car)?

    Nope - the left scroller should still provide some functions as described above..

    You could do two things..

    1) swap just your TID (Triple Info Display) for a GID (Graphic Info Display), or a BID (Board Info Display)

    - Note that Board Info refers to Board Computer Info..

    and then you need to get the new screen programmed to match your Head-unit...

    or

    2) You could swap your head unit and screen for a paired set
    The board computer functions are enabled in the Display, by changing the Code Index.
    (This can be programmed without the audio / security pass code.)

    So you could buy a headunit and matched screen, without being too concerned about having the audio pass - but

    the pass card or number would be useful, should you wish to split the screen and head-unit in future.

    or change / reprogram security / anti theft protection settings.
