Sometimes only the washer/wiper button works the wipers, then sometimes no wiper button will work anything and same time the cruise control button will not work, other times they wiil be not working and then allmof a sudden all buttons will work. I have appt at lazydays to have it checked out but wiuld appreciate any ideas thanks

Could be wiring connections or the ClockSpring. Maybe.

beatsworking....Here is a starting point for you. It's SmartWheels troubleshooting guide that discusses your problem and how to test for it.

follow up on smart wheel

Not being technically gifted, I brought coach to lazydays and guess what, smart wheel worhed perfectly!!! After they took wheel apart, I am now told it is the control module that needs to be replaced so i am waiting for ok from our extended warranty company to see what they will cover after my $500 ded. First time I had to try to use it so we will see how good the good sam coverage is. Hope this takes care of the problem.

I had the very same problem with my 06. I think it ended up being either a loose connection or pinched wire. I took the steering colum appart (easy) so I could see the wires, played with them a little and darn no problem since.

Good luck

It was a pinched wire that caused my SW problems.

I'm due to close on my Sig purchase tomorrow and trying to decide if I should go with the National Warranty that Lazy Days sells or choose someone else. If you get an answer re Sam's today, I'd like to hear how they did.

I had the cruse problem and it was the clips where it attached to the brake switches (more than one)on the fire wall just above the gen, I just pinched the clips closer together and reinstalled.
