He may have not connected some properly or damaged the wires to the switches. Have you told him about it?

the wires are Ok, and connected properly, do u know if the controls on the steering wheel are just connectors or there is a board of electronic components like integrates, resistors etc.. ?

Without looking it up I believe each switch has a different resistance value. Very few wires.
