Multi function steering wheel? ...do other functions all work?
Do heated seats work normally?

Possible causes:
-Relay for steering wheel functions (including heat) is under drivers footwell, center relay(s) positions 3 & 4.
-Fuse, if all wheel functions are down
-ground connection, esp if other functions are down
-no signal from heated seat circuit
-wheel heating element (?)

All other functions work fine (4 buttons work + light up, memory for steering wheel) and the heated seats work fine also.. Is there one of those relays that is for heated wheel only?

Told you relays for 2001...I believe you have a 1997, sorry.

No relay shows in Bentley for 1997, except for horn itself.
Control for heater is inside steering wheel...a circuit board that controls functions on steering wheel (horn button, stereo buttons & heater).
Wheel position & memory have nothing to do with this.

Heater is controlled by this circuit board and triggered by seat heater.

So, if buttons on wheel work (fuse should be OK?), but heater does not: problem on circuit board in wheel, no signal from seat heater or burned out heater element in wheel.
