Question about 2006 Dodge Stratus

Open Question

Why does my cruise control only work sometimes

Cruise will work fine for 3-4 months then not work for a couple of weeks. Clock spring has been replaced to no avail. Could the malfunction be caused by a vacuum leak?

SOURCE: airbag light comes on.

Just got my car back from the garage for this exact problem. It started about 3 months ago. The airbag light would go on for no reason. I did notice when this would happen my power windows would not work. All of a sudden it would come back on and everything would be fine. When I took it in the first time the garage coulnt find anything wrong. Then it got cold. Three days ago as I was driving I adjusted my steering wheel and the air bag light came on. Only this time I had my heater on and the heater went off and once again the windows would not work. I moved my steering wheel again and the light went off, the heater came back on and the windows worked again. All of a sudden the airbag light came on and this time it stayed on. Now I had no heat. I took it in and they said for some reason the wires in the steering wheel were being pinched and shorting and this short was had also caused the ignition switch to go bad, which also had to be replaced for the second time in a year. I got my car back, but you can be assured I will not be adjusting the steering wheel. Good Luck.

SOURCE: clock spring in 04 dodge dadota causing problems

1st and foremost you must disarm the airbag, do this by leaving the battery disconnected for 1 hour, then remove the steering wheel, u will need a steering wheel puller, they are cheap and all auto parts stores have them, after the wheel is off the clock spring is right there and held on by 3 or 4 screws, varies with year. WARNING!! FAILURE TO DISARM THE AIRBAG CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH!!!

How to fix cruise control that is not engaging. What should be checked/tried 1st, 2nd, etc.


certainly sounds suspect
As a point of interest, any parts removed are yours by law and have to be given back to you
so ask for the old parts and have them checked by an accredited auto electrician
the cruise control is operated by several sensors and if any one is not operational the control will not work
1-- vehicle speed sensor (VSS)
2--engine rpms system
3-- ( if manual) clutch sensor
4-- brake sensor
5---ECM
one button is working but the other side (set button ) is controlled by the VSS, brake (clutch) sensors and the ecm or RPM system
cruise controls will not engage under certain speeds or RPMS what all that means is that if the road speed is below a set point, engine rpms are below a point or VSS is faulty , the cruise control will not engage until those conditions are exceed ,or will disengage if conditions fall below the set points b

Why isn't cruise control working?


Expect a defective speed sensor. Cruise control engages and disengages according to speed sensor input.

Cruise controlnot working


Do you have an airbag light lit ? Are your cruise control buttons on the steering wheel . If so the clock spring could have an open circuit. A clock spring is a part inside the steering column , under the steering wheel . Check out this video on clock spring .
https://youtu.be/4jv2DW39drA if no airbag light ,then probably not this part.

Horn and cruise control stop working


There is a device called a "clock spring" inside the steering wheel/column. It contains all the various wires to the buttons on the steering wheel. Sometimes these clock springs that wind and unwind every time the steering wheel is used simply wear out or break causing the problem you cite - no electricity gets to the buttons on the steering whell. Replacing the "clock spring" is mildly expensive. Parts and labor about 400-500 bucks.

My cruise control doesn't work??...any


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.

I have a 2001 Stratus. Airbag light stays on


That happened to me when the clock spring in the steering wheel broke. But the clock spring controls the air bags, horn and cruise control. Check if your horn and cruise control works. If not, I bet it's the clock spring from turning your wheel. It was about $150 to replace. Good luck!
