Default Steering Wheel Volume control illuminator problem

Hy All. Nice to become a member. I am glad you guys have lots of technical knowledge. I do own 1997 Bonneville SE. Few problems so far. Maybe someone knows how to fix illumination of the volume adjustor on the steering wheel? The on that is on the left is ok the one on the right stopped shining in the dark (((.
Another problen is that there is water comming from somewhere especially when it is raining into the side of the driver. I did checked the rubber band that goes against the door when it closes, it seems like the water comes in more when the car is parked. Could it be comming via the windshield? On the carpet from the passenger side it is dry. Any ideas? This water on the front carpet at the left drivers side makes me sad. Though the car is really in good shape corrosion wise, good underneath.

Thanks beforehand
L.T.

For your water leak, see your other post.

For the backlighting of the steering wheel controls, do this:

1. Disconnect the battery.
2. Remove the Hushpanel cover above the driver'* feet (below the column). Plastic panel with insulation on the back side.
3. Remove the airbag fuse.
4. Disconnect the yellow wire harness above the hushpanel, below the column.
5. Using a torx driver, remove the 4 screws on the BACK side of the airbag/steering wheel center portion.
6. Remove the airbag assembly, disconnecting harnesses as you go. Gently. Now remove the steering control modules, and check the circuits/lamps.

After you pull the airbag fuse, wait 20-30 minutes before going after the yellow wire. The SiR system has a large capacitor and can fire for a period of time after the fuse is pulled.

I shoulda put that warning in, but I figured it'd take him that long to get to it after Step 1 disconnecting the battery.
