Hello. I need help in finding why my horn and radio controls on my steering are not working. I went to an electrician and he fixed it for just a day. When I turn the steering it works but not anymore. It has stopped completely now. Please help

What was done to fix the problem?
Is vehicle equipped with SRS and if yes, is the indicator light showing?
Problem is most likely be due to a fault with the contacts/connections under the steering wheel.

Yes the srs sign doesnt go off too. And the EPS sign only blinks for a while when ever I start the car and then stays on. I think the electrician tried fixing the contact because I remember he said something like that, something flex. What do I need to change so that I can just buy it and fix it myself? Thank you

You need to replace the cable reel under the steering wheel. It requires the steering wheel and air bag to be removed. Care must be taken while installing the cable reel and correct procedures must be followed otherwise the cable reel wold be damaged.

The EPS could be something else, it is for the Electronic Power Steering system and you would need a scn tool to retrieve the trouble code to find out what is wrong.
