2006 S430 Multi Function steering wheel buttons do not work.

2006 S430 Multi Function steering wheel buttons do not work.

FIXITMAN :

Hello JACUSTOMER, do the buttons light up? Are all of them non functioning?

Customer:

No. There are no lights in the buttons so they can not light up. None of the buttons on the command menu (left side of steering wheel) work.

Customer:

FIXITMAN. I do not have an answer yet. Please help.

hi, i'll be happy to help you in anyway i can.
sorry to hear of your misfortune :(
its possible the button assembly has failed but is uncommon.
most likely your steering column module has failed (common)
either way its a relatively simple diagnosis with the right equipment.
you'll need to make a trip to the dealership or a mercedes independent with either an sds or xsentry dedicated merceres scanner.
good luck,
gary

Thanks Gary. Would the right side buttons (radio volume) still work if the steering column module has failed?
yes and no, could go either way.
it really is a simple diagnosis with the right equipment.
