Steering wheel controls issues.

brand new here. Purchased a new to us 2008 Mountain aire 4523. dealer said wipers were not working properly due to the smart wheel control module needing replaced. I agreed to have them ship me one from spartan and I would install. Thus said part arrived and installed. Didnt fix issue. lets go back and explain issue. first off wheel has left control that does cruise that worked when it wanted to. and a toggle for tilt wheel as well as another spot for a toggle that is not there. What does that switch do? Left control panel has wiper functions as well as 2 toggles that operate tele wheel and adjustable pedals. Wipers were very slow. After installing new Module nothing worked but the right side toggles made wipers go. Spartan sain Clock wheel. Why would old module mostly work and new was way worse. Ant help would be appreciated. New to Class a. Had several large fifth wheels. TIA.

I agree that at least some of the issues are likely caused by the clock spring from the sounds of it. With the right schematic you would probably be able to ohm each signal from the computer through the relays/connections.

It might be the clock spring in the steering wheel. You will have to determine which steering column you have to get the right clock spring. There may be a sticker or label on the steering column. Worse case scenario would be to pull the clock spring to get the part number

In my case, the steering column is a Douglas Autotech. Here is a bulletin on how to remove my clock spring.

How do you determine steering column brand? My smart wheel is starting to give some intermittent issues.

Well, for me it was pretty easy, I have a copy of the parts page which had the Vendor info and part number. From there I found a source for the clock spring along with the service bulletin.

Here is my parts page & link to clock spring source

My guess it would be the same as yours.
