Had this issue for a long time now, dont want to waist my time/money for a dealer to tell me stuff i already know. The hard code has been cleared in the past but comes right back after. Bought a used unit to replace the stock one and changed nothing. The car has never been in an accident. Im no electrician so im hesitant to do much. Ive read in other forums that they only work if they read 5ohms, no more or less? I've also read the clockspring isnt an issue if the steering wheel controls work? Pretty sure its not the airbag module under the center console but who knows?! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
