There are magnents on the half shaft(front wheel drive) or the drive shaft( rear wheel drive)and a magnetic sensor positioned close to these magnents. If one or the other is damaged or missing the cc wont work. On my 2000 Dodge Ram Van, there's a vacuum line behind the passenger side headlight. If this is disconnected, the cruise control will not work. I found out from the clerk at the dealers parts dept. It's worth investigating.

1997 jetta cruise control fuse?

A. There is no "Cruise Control Relay" per se. The power for the cruise control comes through fuse #14 in the fuse box. From there it goes to the Cruise Control Switch. However, the Cruise Control Module is above the Fuse/Relay box, behind the dash board. There is a special cruise control tester, VAG 1466, that Volkswagen plugs into the system to pinpoint malfunctions. I think it would be worth the money to just have Volkswagen check the system if you find the fuse is not the problem.

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 )

1997 dodge neon speedometer not working?

Could be the speed sensor or another common problem with neons is broken solder points on the instrument cluster circuit board. To test it, see if your cruise control can keep you at speed. If so, it's the instrument cluster. If not could be the speed sensor. If you don't have cruise, then you may have to inspect the cluster for broken solder points.
