SOURCE: 2006 Taurus, airbag light flashes once, then eight

i do not suggest to attempt repairing or diagnosing an air bag system without the proper tools or training. it is entirely possible (and has happened!) that the air bags can deploy inadvertantly upon diagnosis. however now that i have read you your safety rights.....there is no lamp fault code "8" the manner you speak of the flashing light is called a lamp fault code or LFC for short. there is a delay inbetween sequences of flashes. it may indicate a code "44" or maybe "18" or "13"..here are the descriptions of the codes i listed

13 Crash Data Memory Full INSTALL a new RCM and impact sensors.
18 PAD Warning Lamp Circuit Failure
44 Restraint System — Impact Sensor Status (Passenger Side Impact Sensor Circuit Failure
your air bag system is under manufacturers warranty for 5 years or 50,000 miles. i would encourage you to seek professional assistance from your local dealer. your life may depend on it!

good luck

2002 T & C Cruise Control Problem


Do you have buttons on the steering wheel for the cruise control ? Does your horn work ? There is a component under the steering wheel , on top of the steering column , called a clock spring ! I will include a video on it . Chrysler Van Clock Spring

Cruise control not working


You need to post the make and model of your car.

Generally if the cruise control light is on, on the dash indicator then the problem is in the steering wheel electrical connection.

Then internal wiring connecting the steering wheel cruise control switch is connected to the dash by a special wire called a clock-spring ribbon. This is located under/behind the steering wheel. It is not a self service repair item and required a good deal of expertise to repair. Sorry, but you will most likely need to take it to a qualified mechanic. Because the steering wheel also contains an airbag, do not attempt to do this repair yourself!!!

Back brake light stay on, replaced brake switch same problem.Truck has over drive and cruies control If you take switch out of circuit the brake lights stay on the same with the turn/hazard flasher.


Your brake lights and your turn signals go through the multifunction (turn signal) switch. It is common for these switches to short internally. Partial disassembly of the steering column is required to replace it. The airbag stsyem must be disabled, then the airbag removed from the steering wheel. Then the steering wheel must be removed to access the screw in the front of the switch assembly. The rest is pretty easy... a few screws holing the lower cover of the dash, the shroud around the steering column and a few connectors to deal with. (see pictures of switch assembly below)
There are two types of these switches available for 2000 S-10. With cruise control and without cruise control. The one WITHOUT cruise control is much more expensive!

Cruise control on steering wheel does not seem to work, the light won't stay on unless I hold it down.


Well there's a cruise control combination switch on
the steering wheel and without checking I'm pretty
sure this is a dealer item. You may want to let
Honda handle this one due to air bag sensors, clock
spring and other components that could be damaged
if you attempt the repair yourself. I have the Haynes
manual and found no procedure for replacing it.

The light is staying on the cruise control. Its staying activated all the time unless I unplug the battery.


If the cruise control functions on the steering wheel are working ok, press the switch (where the light is located) a few times to see if it is stuck in the ON position. If this is the case, and wont return to OFF, replace the switch.

2000 Buick LeSabre's cruise control button won't stay engaged


We had the same problem and ended up replacing the switch. We used a small flat-tip screwdriver and lifted along the edge of the switch. With the switch removed from the steering wheel, we disconnected the wire connector and installed the new switch by reversing the order.

sounds like a bad clockspring. located in steering column under steering wheel, operates airbag, horn cruise etc, it make wire connection possible so the wheel can spin, its a roll of flat wires, that unroll and roll up as steering wheel is truned from left to right,wires break after a while.

Cruise control and horn stopped working


You need a new clockspring. It is behind the steering wheel, at the top of the steering column. It has wires wound around it like a clock. You will need to disconnect the battery, remove the air bag, then the steering wheel, and the steering column trim. Unbolt it, and install in reverse order.

Cruise control shows power on but will not turn.


the most common cause of this is the rotating ribbon contact for the steering wheel switches is defective, this contact ribbon is under the steering wheel and is commonly called the clock spring contact.
