Steering Wheel Buttons Aren't Working

Hey guys so I today I tried using my steering wheel buttons for the first time since I had the car and none of them work... I mean none not the cruise or the radio controls and they don't illuminate either. I checked the fuses and they are good but what else could it be is there a module somewhere that needs replacing? Any info would be great

If you have the stock radio it should work. Fuse is a 2 amp in the "BCM" fuse block.

Is that under the hood or inside by the drivers door?

Did you you just pull the fuse and look at it or did you replace it. Sometimes they are hard to see if they are blown and fuses are cheep.

Maybe the connector pulled away in the steering wheel column or your clock spring has broken...
