Ok, so I got me a new steering wheel off ebay, nice genuine new job too, fitting was easy and it looks fantastic.

Went for a drive only to see - AIR BAG FAULT - on the screen and a flashing red SRS light too :evil:

Any ideas chaps :?: :?:

Air bag fault. :roll:

:lol:

YOu'll have to have the code(s) read and cleared, may be as simple as that
or they may at least give you an idea where to start looking, but my guess
would be something to do with removing the steering wheel or fitting the new one.

Ok it is getting more anoying now, the volume controls change the cd or mute the sound :!:

This is what I bought - Range Rover P38 30th Anniversary Leather Steering Wheel
Brand new never fitted complete with controls etc.

My RR is a 96 HSE, could this wheel be wrong for it :?:

I have a similar problem - the controls are swapped.

I thought that maybe it was the radio's "fault", but have learned to live with it.

There's another thread about this, but nothing conclusive.

The controls on the earlier and later wheels are different and not compatible. Just swap out the controls from your old wheel into the new one.
As to the airbag fault - how careful were you with the rotary coupler - if you didn't align the wheel to the coupler correctly you could have damaged it putting the wheel back on.

Thanks for the info on the controls, by controls do you mean the buttons or the printed curcit, or both.

I think I was careful with the rotary coupler, but the new wheel had a new boss between it and the coupler, do you think it is to blame?

Thanks again :thumb:
