Hi. got a dandy problem, i think.....
Sterio will not work along with all controlls on the steering wheel, signals and all that work but no horn, illuminasion of buttons, volume and cruz control do not work.
after a few days, everything was working again, then it all quit and same probs.
the car starts and drive fine.
I have checked all the fuses and they are good.......any suggestions?
Yes it does have airbags, It hasen't been serviced scince I have owned it. ( 9 months)
I understand the steering wheel not functioning properly because of a loose wire but would that cause the radio itself not to work?
marti is right, it could well be the ignition switch, a common problem.
I don't know if it's the same in a '98, but you should also look at the fusible link, by the battery. They get loose or corrode over time, causing similar symptoms.
