    The driver seatbelt icon flashes and remains steady for past 6 months. The cruise control not working started yesterday, 10/13th.

    Seat was working fine until just 1 day it would mover forward or backward. But, when played with some of the wires, or after checking the fuse under hood it would work intermittently.

Try disconnecting the battery for a minute or two to try to reset the computer and get rid of the check engine etc., lights.

I cant remeber the airbag light code but i was having the same problem with my husbands truck. I found out it was a cord under the drivers seat that had become slightly loose. It has to do with the seat belt or something. I just pushed it back in and the light went off. I read that in the 2002 explorers that the cord they used when manufacturing it was too short so if you happen to push the seat back to far it could come loose again home this helped .

Horn doesnt work after re-pack of airbag

The horn, cruse control and air bag each get power from the clock spring and each have a wire plugged no to it. The horn wire is probably not connected. When the clock spring breaks the horn and cruse control stop working and the air bag light stays on.

Horn doesn't work,abs light on dash stays on and also cruise control does not work either

Typical reason for no cruise and horn is a bad clock spring underneath the airbag. Typically you have an airbag light on as well and not an abs light

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to disarm the airbag system can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury disconnect the battery 30 minutes prior to start of work.

I have an 04 Caravan 3.3L V6 Vin code "R". The airbag light came on intermittently then finally stayed on. Also about the same time, the horn and cruise control quit working. Are they related somehow?

Its the clock spring under your steering wheel its normally under warranty by the dealer its a recall should be no charge at all for them to check it and replace it

97 f150 ford horn not working

the most common cause is the steering wheel rotating contact, it is called the clock-spring contact, this allows the wheel to turn and still have contact with cruise (if eqiped) horn and airbag, all have separate wires on a coiled printed circuit that looks like a clock-spring.
