    Heating steering wheel not working

    I tried the heated steering wheel the other day and it suddenly is no longer working. I checked the 7.5V minifuse in the right rear fuse box, but it is fine. When I turn on the switch there is no heat and the indicator light also does not come on. What is my next step? Is there a way to check to see if the switch is actually working? Any disassemble instructions would be appreciated.

    Sorry to tell you but the element is bad. Only way to fix it is to replace the wheel.

    Well that's no good as the weather cools down, 08SRX! Do you think you'll get this checked out with your preferred dealership? We don't want to pressure you at all - we're just looking to offer any support we can for you as you work to get this resolved.

    Cheaper to get a used wheel on Ebay

    Re: Heating steering wheel not working

    Okay, so today I was able to turn on the heated wheel again, but found out that pressing the button at a strange angle I can make the light come on. It blips out on most occasions, which leads me to think that it is not the heating element, but likely either the switch or its contacts.

    It also possible that there is a faulty module somewhere. So if anyone can supply assembly/disassembly information for the switch it would be really helpful. Thanks.

    To get at switch, remove airbag, then 2 screws. Remove steering wheel to get a module.

    Good news!! Almost always it is the heating element itself that goes bad.

    I have the same issue as 08SRX had, just curious if you were able to solve it? Heater comes on and off, intermittently. Thanks
