Question Steering Wheel buttons for Radioo and Bluetooth not working

I have a 2008 Pro 4x and the buttons on the left side of the steering wheel stopped working (volume, channel selector, mode and voice command). Any suggestions on where to begin troubleshooting?

I would start with the fuses. And then the stereo.

Re: Steering Wheel buttons for Radioo and Bluetooth not working

I have the same exact problem with my 2008 Titan LE. Problem started yesterday. The only thing that I did was lift the tilt wheel and bring it back to normal. Other research points to a "Clock Spring" or wiring short. Stock stereo, never messed with any internal wiring. Stereo works fine, bluetooth is fine, cruise control on the right side is fine. All controls on the left side are In-Op.

Looks like I might have to go to the dealer and start shelling out the big $$$ unless anyone knows of a fix!

Thanks!

Was anyone able to figure this out??? My volume control, mode, presets, and Bluetooth will only work when the wheel is turned 1/4 turn to the right or left, and does not work while the wheel is straight. I have read all the posts about the spiral cord/clock spring, and I don't think this is the case since everything else works. Cstotz, if you figured it out, please let me know!!!

Thanks

Re: Steering Wheel buttons for Radioo and Bluetooth not working

Looking for a solution myself. Seems there are a few threads with others having same issue (even on other Nissan vehicle forums), but no post of resolution. My cruise and horn work fine, all the time, but I can't get any of the switches on the left side for audio and bluetooth to work. I have ordered and tried new switches and that didn't work. I've checked connections to the switches and to the clockspring as well as to the stereo. No luck. I guess the next thing is to replace the clockspring, but I figured if that was going bad, I would have some kind of issue with cruise... Anyway, before I TRY the clockspring, I sure would like to know if anyone else has found resolution......

Re: Steering Wheel buttons for Radioo and Bluetooth not working

Probably a wiring issue in the steering column. I would open it up and see if any wires are messed up such as unintentional grounding.

Re: Steering Wheel buttons for Radioo and Bluetooth not working

If it's an aftermarket HU, try having the modulator reprogrammed. Stock HU, I would look more toward the clock spring or the controls themselves.

I got mine figured out. It was the clockspring! I plugged and unplugged everything in back of the radio and in the steering wheel with no luck. Replaced the clockspring this afternoon and I have full functionality of all buttons.
