I have seen on another message board that the fix caused some trucks to blow a fuse, easy enough to check and replace. However it is more likely that the clock spring in the stearing wheel is bad. Does your horn work? How about the cruise control? If they are on the steering wheel they won't be working either as the clock spring controls them all.

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.

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.

Probably a bad clockspring, be carefull that probably meens you're airbag is out of function too, Does the airbag light come on?

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.

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.

i had the same problem, it's probably your clock spring. its under the steering wheel and it controls the horn, cruise control and airbag. it also could just be a bad sensor or something. Depends if ur cruise control and horn still work.

Faulty air bag, see the dealer!!! It could also mean there is a faulty airbag clockspring, this is located in the hub of the steering wheel, and can cause an open circuit which allows the light to stay on. This is covered in a recall issued by Dodge. The horn and/or cruise control could also be affected. I know this because we recently (03/26) purchased a '99 Dodge Caravan. The airbag light was on. We then noticed that the horn was nonfunctional. After doing some research online I found information on the recall, it also mentioned that the cruise control. Lo and behold, the next time I drove it, the cruise control didn't work. I contacted my local Dodge dealer and the problem was fixed at no charge!! The airbag light is off, the horn and cruise control both work.

Cruise control is an accessory.

It is possible to convert a car without cruise control to have cruise control. Many auto parts stores sell kits which will install cruise control in a vehicle.

There are several ways to fix the cruise control on your Mercedes-Benz depending on the problem with the cruise control. Make sure the fuse for the cruise control is not blown.

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.

Depending on the age and model of the vehicle you have, the fuse which is associated with Cruise Control will either specifically say 'Cruise Control.' Other associations, such as with Ford, Chevrolet, and General Motors, the fuse box may say: "Ancillary" "Accessories" "Drive" finally, if the Cruise Control has been added after leaving the assembly plant, the Cruise Control power source may be connected to "Clock" "Display" and even "Radio." European makes may require direct reference to the vehicle manual for specific numerals.

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.

check the module connected to the throttle body that the wires and cable are connected to it correctly,this controls the cruise control. also check the brake lights so they are working proporly

User Avatar

There is no isolated fuse for the cruise control. It all runs off the 20A gauges fuse. If you are having trouble with the cruise control I would check the Cruise Control Module or the Cruise control Servo. What symptom is occurring?

User Avatar

Most likely it a broken or malfunctioning clock spring in your steering column

The cruise control on a 2002 Mercedes ML320 will stop working if the fuse has blown or the wiring has become loose. An OBDII code reader can be connected to the vehicle's computer to help diagnose the problem.

If the cruise control on your 1987 300ZX does not work, you might have an issue with the cruise control fuse or wiring. You could also have a problem with the switch that turns the cruise control on and off.
