Default Radio Controls On Steering Wheel

I'm having problems with the lower half, (bottom half). The lower I go on the steering wheel, the harder I have to press to get any effect. The lowest controls don't really seem to work at all. I don't know if it'* the contacts, the controls, or just dirt. I took a air hose and tried to spray behind the bottoms, but there was no differnce in the effect.


Has anyone ever had that problem?

MOS95B, thanks, I didn't even know that existed. I wish I had pictures though, I'm going to have to read it several times before fully understanding. One thing that really worries me is disconnecting and working around the air bag.

I don't know the procedure for the airbag by memory, and won't risk someone else potentially getting injured by trying to explain what I do remember, but every Haines and/or Chiltons I've ever looked at for an airbag equipped vehicle has the procedure in it about 10 different times.

I found it. Please click this link for ALL safety precautionsand illustrations

DISARMING THE SIR SYSTEM

See Figures 12, 13, 13, 14, 15 and 16

Proper and safe operation requires the sensor, brackets and wiring to be installed in the exact locations of design. All components service must be exactly aligned and tighten to exact torque specification. It is not advisable to service the air bag system. The information provided is to help you understand the system and disarm the system if other non-air bag system service are to be performed.

Before beginning the disarming procedure, read all service precautions.

Turn the steering wheel so that the vehicle'* wheels are pointing straight ahead.

Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position, remove the key, then disconnect the negative battery cable.

Wrap the end of the battery cable with tape to avoid possible terminal contact.

Remove the AIRBAG fuse (fuse #7 for 1992-93 vehicles, or #1C for 1994-99 vehicles) from the fuse block.

With the AIRBAG fuse removed and the ignition in the

RUN position, the AIR BAG warning lamp illuminates. This is a normal operation and does not indicate a system malfunction.

Remove the left side sound insulator/steering column filler panel and courtesy lamp, as needed.

Remove the Connector Positive Assurance (CPA) lockpin on the yellow 2-way connector at the base of the steering column.

Unplug the yellow 2-way SIR connector, located near the base of the steering column.

If equipped with a passenger side air bag, remove the right side instrument panel sound insulator to access the connector. Remove the CPA lockpin, then unplug the yellow 2-way passenger inflator module connector. The connector is located at the base of the right side instrument panel, clipped to the knee bolster (tie bar and steering column filler).

Fig. 13: Location of the passenger'* side SIR connector - 1993 vehicle shown

Fig. 14: Location of the passenger'* side 2-way connector - 1994-99 Oldsmobile shown

Fig. 15: Passenger'* side SIR connector location - 1994-99 Buick shown

Fig. 16: Location of the 1994-99 Pontiac passenger'* side SIR connector

If necessary, connect the negative battery cable. The system can now be safely serviced.
