    What Do Your Steering Wheel Controls Do???

    Evening all.

    As you can see in the picture below, its my steering wheel and ive labelled two buttons which i want you to tell me what they do on your car when you press them. because i think mine are back to front just because of the picture on the button and what i think it should do but it does the opposite.




    regards.

    mike.

    This isn't going to be very helpful, but I reckon my headunit make's it up as it goes along.

    Depending on what screen I am on, those two can do whatever they want!!

    What do they do on yours and I'll see if its the same on mine?

    HAHA very good.... ill give you that one.

    Button 'A' = starts my CD from Track 1.

    Button 'B' = Turns over to Radio 1

    but to me the buttons should work the other way round????

    do we know if each button has its on plug or is it all built in????

    regards.

    as i am feeling kind, and shameless hasnt started yet, I popped out to KaTie to have a look.

    Button B - Changes source between Radio and CD

    Button A - Either restarts CD from beginning or scrolls through stored Radio Stations, depending on what mode you're in.

    TBH I never use them, I only really use the scrolly wheel, the up n down and the vol control.

    I use the scrolly wheel to move between screen menu's and I use the number pad or up and down to swap tracks / stations.

    hope you don't mind but i am gunna ask a question while the pictures are up here!

    mine does exactly the same as yours, no need for concern, thats obviously the vx way!!!

    anyway, the scroll wheel on the left of these buttons, as pictured above. mine doesn't do anything at all! in radio or cd mode, i can scroll it, no change at all. in radio and cd mode, i can push it in, no change at all!

    not that i want it to do anything, just wanted to know if it was supposed to do anything at all, and if so, what does it do? i have always wondered....

    I have the sat nav and colour screen on mine and it scrolls between the tabs on that, then you click to enter into a tab for further info.

    Depends on what your audio set up is i suppose.
