    Funny things with the Computer/steering wheel contols....

    on my 57 Plate Astra SRI....

    Sometimes the wheel mounted controls don't work....

    You can push the button in to reset something but you can't scroll through things - you have to press the controls on the stereo

    Also the volume control (on the steering wheel) sometimes doesn't go up but does go down

    Finally the horn doesn't always work ?!?!?!?

    Anyone had anything similar ?

    cheers

    Before you take your car to the dealer,try checking the conector block on the steering wheel.I had the same problem and was told that a new cim module was needed,as i don`t like paying out to dealers i thought that i would investigate the problem,off came the cowling to reveal the connector i appeared to be a little loose so reconnected it and secured with a mini cable tie,so far so good...didn`t have to pay out and it all works,so try it before you dig deep into your wallet.

    Ian the cars under warrenty, why fiddle yourself and possibly break something when it's up to the dealer to fix it

    yep - took mine into today to have CC fitted and they sorted this at the same time

    They said they replaced the steering wheel wiring loom - I asked how much that would have been if i had to pay for it and they said £80...
