Controls for AC and Radio on steering wheel not working any more
I have a 1996 GOLD SLS which had small line of smoke coming from behind steering wheel. Turns out the signal/hazard switch had a short and caused the smoke. I changed the switch and now my controls for the radio and AC located on the steering wheel do not work any more. I have rechecked the wire connection and did continuity test to ensure I did not break any of the wires when replacing and everything check out ok. I had to remove and replace the four wires which merged into the signal switch harness and I am pretty sure I replaced them in the correct order. The service manual for the car is not available on the shelf and needs to be ordered. (several days). The dealer in my neighborhood is not very helpful because they want me to bring the car to them and pay excessive amounts of money to fix. I need wiring diagram for controls showng wire color and position from controls to junction box. Any suggestions regarding a remedy are welcome.
I have also removed and replace everything twice and everything seems to have good contact. Of the four wires going to the steering wheel controls only one wire has power (Yellow Wire). Yellow wire only goes to radio controls and the two controls hav one wire which connects the two switches together. The other three wires split and connect to both swithes.
