    Default Steering wheel controls

    Sorry for posting this question about my Astra H but the knoledge in these formus is really good.

    My car did not come as standard with steering wheel controls. So i put a new steering wheel on with the controls ( one with the scroll wheels) and paid a vauxhall guy £20 to tech 2 it and enable it. It all worked fine or a while then some strange things started to happed.

    When i turn my lights on some of the controls do not work, turn the lights off and its good.

    Managed to blagg a new cim unit under warranty at vauxhall, and again it worked for a while but now its doing the same, and also the horn doesnt work.

    Could it be a problem with the steering wheel its self?

    I know that the cim unit transfers the commands onto the canbus but i dont know why it would work for a while then go wrong.

    Any ideas?

    The cause for such problem is Bad connection of the steering wheel wiring harness pin´s. Solution: replace the wiring harness assembly inside steering wheel, under airbag. Contact your dealer - they must know it.

    Cheers for the reply,

    But im still not sure if bad connections are causeing this issue. How does turning the lights on change the controls from working to not working?

    cheers
