Angry Steering Wheel Control Screw Up?

Hello all,

For the last few weeks or so I have noticed the steering wheel buttons on the left side (that control the little info lcd on the dash) act up and decide to act in the opposite way.

If I press down, it goes up. If I press up, it goes down. Sometimes when I press down, it goes left.

Has anyone had this problem before? Its very annoying. I end up pressing it hard thinking it will help and all it does is just honk the horn :) I am bringing it into the dealer this weekend. I just wanted to know if anyone saw this before and assure I am not being gas lighted or something!

Thanks guys!

Hey there,

Be sure to mention this when you bring your vehicle in to the dealership this weekend. They'll be in the best position to diagnose and repair.

Let me know how things go!

I was driving tonight and guess what.
When I press the top the screen spins down. When i press the bottom the screen moves up.
I bet yours has ALWAYS done the same, just for some reason you thought different.
