    Evening folks,
    Can anyone help?, gradually my function buttons on the steering wheel have stopped working, firstly the cruise control worked sometimes and then not others and now not at all, the radio controls likewise.
    Would be grateful for any help,
    Thanks,
    Martyn

    Just thought, maybe this should go into the auto-electrical section, any help from mods appreciated

    Moved for you Martyn . With regards to your problem, I reckon your slip ring has become faulty.

    It's a ring behind the steering wheel that controls the buttons. Do a search on the forum

    Neal, cheers for your help with this, just stripped everything down and the ribbon wire inside the slip ring has broken.
