Accessory lights on steering wheel don't work -- they do work on the door panels etc.
If they all went out at the same time then chances are really good that the clock spring unit is starting to go bad. Is the air bag light also on? If so then the chances of it being the clock spring unit just doubled. If they slowly went out 1 at a time then the bulbs have burned out.
