Break lights, speed control and turn signals malfunction
When the steering wheel is adjusted below the highest setting the break lights and turn signals do not work. The break lights will work if physical pressure is placed holding the wheel past the highest position and even then the lights must be on (not the automatic daytime ones). The turn signal will make a quick clicking sound. The speed control also does not function.

This is a very complex system an if you don't work on these systems all the time , I suggest you take it to a ASE certified repair shop that does !
The Variable Effort Steering (VES) system or MAGNASTEER?® Varies the amount of effort required to steer the vehicle as vehicle speed changes. At low speeds, the system provides minimal steering effort for easy turning and parking Maneuvers. Steering effort is increased at higher speeds to provide firmer steering (road feel) and directional stability. The Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) controls a bi-directional magnetic rotary actuator located in the steering rack and pinion. The EBCM varies the steering assist by adjusting the current flow through the actuator to achieve a given level of effort to steer the vehicle. The VES system accomplishes this by adding or subtracting torque on the input shaft to the rack and pinion. The main component of the system is an electromagnetic actuator, which consists of a multiple-pole ring-style permanent magnet, a pole piece, and an electromagnetic coil assembly. The VES system uses the ABS wheel speed sensor inputs to determine vehicle speed. When the EBCM senses wheel speed, it commands a current to the VES actuator that is most appropriate for each speed. The EBCM commands current from negative two amps to positive three amps to the actuator, which is polarized. At low speeds, a negative current is commanded, which assists steering. At medium speeds no current is commanded and steering is assisted by hydraulics only. At high speeds, a positive current is commanded, which creates steering resistance. Ignition voltage and ground are provided through the EBCM. The EBCM has the ability to detect malfunctions in the actuator or the circuits to the actuator. Any malfunctions detected will cause the system to ramp to zero amps and steering will be assisted by hydraulics only and setting a DTC - diagnostic trouble code !
Try from Servo control follow connection To I beleive Transmission casing . Look for Burnt wiring / frayed / damaged ...Cruise should maintain speed signal Like speedo cable . Computor management black box / ECM may have direct control so Look for engine bay fuse boxes = 2 under hood . More fuses ++ relays 2 check inside cover is diagram of size + what it controls . A Reset 2 ecm may help by disconnecting Battery - Let sit 30 mins.. Older models + 4 wheel drive Trans has Gear wheel of plastic 2 count revolutions as speedo cable does . If said wheel teeth have worn out then Cruise counts incorrect or fails 2 activate . If you replaced brake pedal Light activation switch then be sure brake Tail lights DO work if not the cruise will fail as brake pedal is part of safety feature to turn it off in emergency disconnect . The signal light Stalk that Turns off L / R signals is Common Item 2 wear out BUT it also controls Turning on cruise or setting ...IF you have Steering wheel on / off / setting control - then issue can be frayed / cut wires due 2 steering wheel movement ....solutions remove wheel BUT 1 st disconnect Air Bag Fuse then wheel and search connections .....Good Luck ...
What kind of car ? There is a thing call a clock spring inside the steering column that lets you turn the steering wheel an still have controls on the wheel , an sometime the wires break ! How cars clock spring works
STEERING WHEEL TILT LEVER ON LOWER LEFT OF THE STEERING WHEEL NEXT TO THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH JUST LOOK FOR ANOTHER LEVER BELOW TURN SIGNAL SWITCH THATS YOUR STEERING WHEEL TILT LEVER. YOU CANT MISS IT UNLESS IT BROKEN OFF.
Hello and welcome. code B0026 is for a airbag malfunction. this code will require a high end scan tool, like a GM tech 2 scan tool to check out.this code is related to a deployment loop problem on the drivers side of vehicle
DTC B0026 will set when one of the following conditions occurs:
The SDM detects the steering wheel module deployment loop resistance is greater than 4.8 ? for 500 milliseconds.
The SDM detects the voltage at steering wheel module high signal is less than 2.4 volts and steering wheel module deployment loop resistance is 6 ? or greater for 500 milliseconds.The inflatable restraint steering wheel module deployment loop consists of a steering wheel module, steering wheel module coil, steering wheel module high signal circuit, and steering wheel module low signal circuit. Shorting bars are used on the steering wheel module connector as well as the steering wheel module coil connector which will short together the steering wheel module high and steering wheel module low signal circuits when the connector is disconnected. This will help to prevent unwanted deployment of the inflator module during servicing. When the ignition is turned ON, the inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) performs continuous diagnostic tests on the deployment loops to check for proper circuit continuity and for shorts to ground or voltage. If a malfunction is detected, a DTC will be stored.
It could be your clock sensor, or (Also known as) steering squib, it is located in the steering wheel, it can also cause intermittent air bag light warning, cruise control, radio control malfunction of steering wheel controls. It can also cause the horn not to work. If you have any of the other symptoms I would suggest this is your problem.
your is mostlikly on because there are 4 sensors on each axle that read wheel speed, when one malfunctions it sends a signal to the ecm to throw that light, the brake light is probably due to the tention of your ebrake, if it engages right when you start pulling it up then the lever does not go high enough to let the plunger out of the sensor attatched to the ebrake lever, or that sensor could have gotten broken or stuck also, i would adjust your pedel down by the lever should see a sensor that can be unscrewed and backed up then retightend back down, or you may have to adjust your break. the abs should be able to be taken to a autopart store and they can hook it up to a codereader for free and let you know which one is malfunctioning or if it is the entire abs unit since there is a computer that goes to them all though the sensors are out to the elements and usually always mess up down the road from heat and watter, hope that answered all your q's, if it did throw me some blue take care gal
No solution from me - - - I have the same problem... sort of. My headlights will come on for a short period of time If I tilt the steering wheel all the way down... Then after about 15 minutes they will turn off again... Then I tilt the wheel to the highest level and they come back on for another 15 minutes or so... The highbeams work without problem. This all began when the cable to my parking brake snapped...
