RE4 manual is on a distinguished road
Default Steering wheel buttons

I have a newly purchased 2010 RE4 I have got factory cruise control that was installed by my dealer pre delivery. When they first installed it they told us that they were having trouble getting the steering wheel lights to illuminate, they kept the car for a few more days and then delivered it and the buttons don't illuminate. They now tell us that they aren't supposed to, which confuses me as if they were having trouble getting them to illuminate then surely there must be lights behind the buttons and if they are there they should work. Or are they just useless and were they trying to get something to illuminate that shouldn't.

I have 2 questions on whether the buttons on the steering wheel are supposed to illuminate at night when the lights are turned on.

1. Has anyone out there got a swift with the factory cruise control buttons on their steering wheel and do they illuminate?

2. Can anyone tell me whether the stereo buttons on the left side of the steering wheel are supposed to illuminate? I have had differing answers from dealers when I have done a ring around today. Some tell me no, some tell me that the newer models do illuminate.

Thanks

I've found the answer to my steering wheel button questions.
There is a "clock work spring" contraption that transmitts the power/selectrical signals from the steering wheel to the fixed steering column.
-Pre june 09 there was 2 of the clockwork spring connections that were not used by the stereo control buttons
-Pre June 09 the stereo control buttons on the wheel didn't have lighting function.
-the company that manufactures the cruise control buttons for suzuki utilised the 2 spare clockwork spring connectors for the cruise control buttons.
-In june 09 suzuki decided to use the 2 spare clockwork spring connectors to provide a lighting function for the stereo control buttons on the steering wheel (remember that suzuki don't produce the swift with the cruise control as a standard option).
-When the cruise control option is fitted to a june 09 or later swift at your dealer suzuki has produce a bulletin that informs the dealer to disconnect the lighting from the stereo control buttons and use the clockwork connectors for the cruise control.

Problem solved, when cruise control is fitted the buttons don't light up.
