could be a vacume leak or a bad switch. A 2002 Intrique is an all electric cruise control. The fuse for the cruise control is in the passenger side dash panel. The controller box is located on the driver side strut/spring tower. A cable runs from the throttle to this box, which has a winch inside. This winch has a flat nylon ribbon on it that attaches to the cable just outside the box. If the controller is working, the nylon ribbon has broke. A new box is ~ $200. A roll of the perfect size strap is 80 cents at Wally world. Sew the new ribbon to the old making very sure you get the length as close as possible. If it is too long, you will set the cruise on 80 and it may not pull the throttle til 35, no problem, just shorten the cable. On the opposite side make sure there is enough slack to let the throttle close when the box is off. Hope this helps.
I just got a new car (Toyota Corolla S) with cruise control and after I press the cruise control button, a CC light comes up on the dash. However, this is not engaging the cruise control. You may need to flick one of the levers near or on your steering wheel to engage. Hopefully one of these two answers helps you.

No, my steering is fine.
For several years of the Chevy astro van had a power brake and power steering system that was linked together. Instead of a brake booster, the power steering pump provides power to the power brake system. Often, if the brake pedal would become hard to push, it is a power steering pump problem. Change the power steering pump and the power steering fluid and your problem may disappear.
No. With the power steering broken, the control of the vehicle will be greatly reduced. That may damage steering collumn . Eventually . That would be a problem. If your fluid leaked out ,the pump might be destroyed.
This is the traction control of the vehicle, preventing uncontrollable skidding in hard braking or steering situations.
I'm not a mechanic / technician but it sounds like a problem with the clockspring inside the steering wheel column cover if the horn and the cruise control does not work ( the clockspring allows you to turn the steering wheel without pulling the wiring connections to your horn and cruise control switches mounted in your steering wheel )

You need too change the clock spring in the steering wheel. MY 2001 sebring had the same problem, changed it now it's ok. Horn and cruise control works now./
The problem could be that the Electronic Brake Control Module has gone bad. I have a 2001 Grand Prix GTP which the EBCM has gone bad, which in turn has killed my ABS and Traction Control, and has also affected the variable assist steering. As I understand it, the EBCM is tied into all the hydraulic systems in the car, which is why the steering is affected.
The clockspring under the airbag is not connected or needs to be replaced! also the cruse control and radio controls in the steering wheel are probably not working
Could be tie rod or steering gear problem.

You might want to check your power steering fluid

The most likely cause is a bad steering rack. The valves inside the rack could be stuck, broken or blocked. You could also have a bad strut(s) or ball joints that are binding the steering linkage. It could also be bad or broken motor mounts. Though less likely, it could be the bearings inside the steering column are binding up, or something pressing against the shaft and keeping it from turning freely. The most likely problem is the steering rack.
If a car engine stalls when turning, there could be a problem with the power steering pump. There could also be an issue with an emissions control device.
You either have no/low power steering fluid in your car, or there is some other problem with the power steering, such as a leak in the tube.
My research shows that the most common answer is when the Traction control/ABS gets disabled, it also disables the Magnasteer assist which will make steering a bit harder than normal. The most common problem which will cause the Traction control/ABS lights to come on is a bad wheel bearing assembly.
The problem is probably in the steering gear. Clogged passages in steering gear. Leaks in steering gear.
I have a 2006 Ion - the power steering went out. My dealer said that this was a common problem - Saturn was working on a recall. They took care of replacing the steering column - no charge.
