2005 LR3 SE V6 w/Coils & 2008 LR3 SE V8 on 33’s
I noticed a couple months ago that the back lighting on the steering wheel buttons on my 2008 LR3 were cutting out when the wheel was hovering around the normal centered position, but a slight turn of the wheel and they’d pop back on. Progress to today and they are now almost always off. In addition the horn buttons don’t work. After a Neanderthal inspired research moment I discovered that they all work perfectly if you push slightly on the top of the central airbag unit. So when I need to see a button at night or honk the horn I just press the top center and it all works. Not a great fix, but functional. Now, my state inspection is due and I need a working horn to pass... a one-step horn honk will be required. I’ve watched a few YouTube videos on removing the airbag and accessing the wires and such beyond. Before I did that I wanted to see if others have had this happen and what to look for.
