HELP! Steering Wheel Controls not working and Check System warning
Hi all, hope someone can help?
Just had all my steering wheel remote controls stop working and not lit up.
I was parking the car and heard something which didn't quite sound right and all the controls stopped working and I had the orange display Check System and the red airbag light come on.
Doing a general Internet search it seems that the cable reel may have broken or come loose. Anyone had any dealings with this?
Also saw that on another Forum it was suggested that if the steering has been disconnected at the gearbox this can also cause the reel to break as it messes up the alignment? I just happen to have had my clutch replaced a couple of weeks ago!
I don't like the idea of not having an airbag working properly and also no steering remote controls.
I really hope this can be a quick simple and very cheap fix as I have very little spare money at the mo, and the MOT is due in a couple of weeks!
Thanks in advance for all/any help
