There is a "clockspring" in the steering column that is probably broken. When the clockspring breaks, the airbag light comes on. The "clockspring" takes the place of the old slip rings and spring loaded contacts used in older cars and is used to transfer circuits from the steering wheel to the stationary column making the airbag, horn and speed control operational. To replace involves removing the airbag. Take it to the dealer.
Possible clockspring failure.
You have an broken wire in the clock spring.
Probably a bad clockspring, be carefull that probably meens you're airbag is out of function too, Does the airbag light come on?
2004 sebring convertable cruise control not working - what to do?
If it were me I would take the air bag back out and make sure the wires arn't "pinched" or broken and make sure that it has a good tight connection with the clockspring connector. If that doesnt solve it then the airbag control unit has failed for somereason. Hope this helps some.
On the steering wheel by the airbag
I believe there is no fuse just for the cruise control. The cruise control circuit is covered by the PCM. However, I would check the switches on the brake pedal.
The cruise control relay on a 1994 F150 is operated by a switch behind the horn pad and airbag on the steering wheel. The switch will probably need replacement if the cruise control in your vehicle is malfunctioning.
There is a device under the airbag called a clock spring. This coiled tape contains electrical conductors, and allows for rotation of the steering wheel without twisting the conductors. If this tape gets kinked or broken, that would explain why your horn and cruise control both stopped working at the same time (assuming steering wheel mounted cruise control). To check or replace the clock spring, the air bag must be removed on most models, which can be dangerous unless the air bag is properly disabled.
cruise control does not work when headlights are on
the cruise control is broken....
I'm not a mechanic / technician but if your horn and cruise control stopped working at the same time , it might be the clock-spring inside your steering wheel column cover . The clockspring allows a person to turn the steering wheel while still maintaining the electrical connections to your horn and cruise control buttons
replace clock spring for airbag in streeing column.
You need to have someone with a scan tool check the airbag system for trouble codes. The airbag system is not a place for do it your selfers.
I had that problem and had to replace the clock spring in the steering wheel. It's a coil of flat wire that breaks.
Possible answerIs the airbag idiot light illuminated on the dash? There is a recall concerning airbag/clockspring failure on the 97. My horn failed when this repair was needed. Don't have cruise control on my vehicle. AnswerThis is caused by the clock spring inside the steering wheel behind the airbag. There is a recall for this problem. Take your car to any Plymouth dealer and it will be fixed for free. Call them first so they will have the clock spring in stock.
Are you sure you need the fuse for the cruise control. My cruise control wasn't working, neither were my brake lights. All 7 bulbs were burnt out. When the brake lights were replaced the cruise control worked.
Start with checking the fuse.
My 2002 Olsmobile Intrique cruise control works some times when you set it, why?
I have been doing a little research here, and my cruise control quits working when the airbag light goes on and stays lit. I just went to the dodge.com site and checked for recall information under the owner services tab. Turns out the previous owner never had the recall items repaired. It could be a problem with the control, but I am feeling more like it is clockspring related.
cruise control not working,u need to check the fuses also check the clutch safety switch as this also has to do with cruise control
It is possible that the traction control module is not working and may need replacing.
BROKEN CRUISE CONTROL CABLE (CHECK AT THROTTLEBODY AND FOLLOW TO TRANSMISSION)
on some cars the cruise control cuts out on its own in Case you have fallen a sleep
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.
