Question about Mitsubishi Galant
I fixed my criuse problem on my '81 Challenger (Mitsubichi) many years ago (intermittant or non-functioning, especially in cold weather); don't know if the newer models could have similar problem. The vacuum solenoid (one of the 3 solenoids in the engine compartment) would receive momentary (ground) pulses from the control unit under the dash, but the ground wire from the solenoid to the controller was so long and lossy that the solenoid couldn't respond to the pulses. I added a little relay (reed type) right inside the solenoid cover that used the ground pulse to fire the relay, and let the relay supply a ground directly to the solenoid. It worked flawlessly. The relay would operate with as little as 6v pulse, so the losses didn't bother the relay.

jnjkingbird, It sounds like this problem is the clock spring as I don't believe that the horn and the cruise control would share a fuse. However, they do share a circuit in the clock-spring. You can check for power at each unit (horn and the cruise control) which would confirm this. Check each fuse as well. Good luck with this.
