The lights for the cruise setting buttons on the steering wheel do not light up. If there is a fuse associated with the light circuit? If so where is it located? My manual does not specifically show its location. If it's the bulb/s, how do I replace them? Any recommended trouble shooting procedures will be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello

I have attached information on how to remove the switch. I don't show anything about a bulb. Some of those small switches have the lamp mounted inside so you have to replace the whole switch. I hope not, it looks like it is about $235. There may be peanut bulbs on the back once you get it out.
Hope this helps - let us know

Remove the speed control actuator switches.
Use appropriate tool to remove the switch from the steering wheel.

You did not respond to the question "is there a fuse and if so where is it located?".

I ams sorry,

As you know, it appears your fuses are not set up like normal. They are number. I have searched the data base and the wiring diagrams and they don't tell me or I can't see which fuse they run through. The best guess is fuse F232 and F236. You may have to call the dealer on that one.
