FYI: btw check your cruise control and horn, if those won't work then the problem'll be your clock spring sits underneath the steering wheel air bag broken.My volume control on the steering wheel just stop working yesterday. Is there some type of fuse I can check for this?
All help is needed.
Dude! I was just going to write the same post. On Thursday, my 1991 LS sedan's steering wheel volume control stopped working (both up and down). However, the center button that changes the radio presets still works and I know my horn still works. Have not tested the cruise control or tried the "flick trick", but will...My volume control on the steering wheel just stop working yesterday. Is there some type of fuse I can check for this?

I got them to work and I believe it was this trick that did it.I don't believe there is a fuse for that, but sometimes dirt gets in behind the knob on the radio. Try flicking the center of the knob to loosen it up. No joke. It works.
Flicking it... like poking it...or quick jabs at it with your finger...and yes my radio knob turned on and off a few times while trying it.Flickering as in turning the actual radio knob on and off?
sorry, have not experienced that one...but sounds like something has a bad or loose connection?...total guess.So does anyone have a problem with the radio controls on the steering wheel only working when they want to? Or doing whatever they want? Mine sometimes work fine, or don't work at all, or the volume will change the channels, or the down volume button will turn the volume up.
Yes the volume knob does move when using the volume control on the steering wheel. I do not know about a volume knob motor...but have you tried the "flick trick" discussed above. It just worked for me.Have any of you guys noticed if your volume knob turns when you use your steering wheel controls?
I will give that a shot when I get off. Question, how do you tell if the clock spring is broken?Flicking it... like poking it...or quick jabs at it with your finger...and yes my radio knob turned on and off a few times while trying it.
But to be honest, I think it was when I did this to the steering wheel control up and down buttons that did it. I poked them with the point of my finger quickly and repeatedly like 5-7 times each (also did this to the knob on the radio) and the up/down controls started working again. Just did this Saturday night...
PS - any larger pics of your car? It looks great in your avatar/sig. I really like the sedans with the 7 spoke OEM wheels. Trying to get a set myself.
I am not sure, but I would think all the steering wheel controls would not work. Is it just the volume controls that do not work? Can you change radio stations with the middle button? Does the cruise control turn on? can you increase speed? decrease? Does the horn work? I believe all of these, use the clock spring. Kind of like ptan1968 said above.I will give that a shot when I get off. Question, how do you tell if the clock spring is broken?
