Is there a fuse that controls the cruise control horn and airbag all which are on the steering wheel of a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan?

No single fuse controls them. But they have the clockspring in common and there is a recall from Daimler Chrysler for this on 1996 to 1998 models. You state you have a 99 model. Go to the Dodge site and go to the owners section. Go to recall information. You'll need the last 8 characters of your VIN. Put them in and see if there was a recall for this on your model. If not, you will most likely be looking to replace the clockspring which connects the items in the steering wheel (horn, cruise and air-bag) to the rest of the electrical system. Seems to be a problem in Chrysler vehicles. I had the same problem. I removed the clockspring and disassembled. there was a minor break of the cable at the connector-pin area, but the major problem was evident only after unwinding. It was about 2 or 3 inches from the wire connections. I called O'reilly, they wanted $55.99 and it was instock. I didn't feel like driving 25 miles to town and spending that much, so i carefully fixed it myself. I would not recommend self repair to most people. You have to cut off the break area then scrap the coating off the new end. Then cut the material between the cable traces, then carefully solder.

It doesn't control anything. It is the connection for the cruise switches, horn switch, radio controls(if equipped) and airbag that allow the steering wheel to turn and there to still be a connection.

Yes, on a 1999 Subaru Forester, the ribbon wire for cruise control is inside of the steering wheel. The same ribbon also controls the horn.

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
