    It is the clock spring in the steering wheel any auto mechanic shop can take of it. Don't attempt yourself cause airbag is in that area

I wouldn't f(uck around with this. I'd take it straight to an auto electrician.

How knows, it could like kick into cruise when you least expect it and really screw you up and cause a rear ender.

Reset 2004 honda accord steering wheel controls?


A thing called the "Clock Spring" in the steering wheel needs replacing. It has all the wires in that operate that stuff on the steering wheel and airbag. There may also be a sliding ground connection that could be bad or dirty.

The cruise control in my 2005 Ford Freestar just stopped working yesterday, then this afternoon the radio controls in the steering column stopped working as well


clock spring in the steering column is my guess. They are delicate and have to do with anything in the steering wheel like airbag, horn, or anything that is operated by buttons on the wheel. These wires have to turn constantly with the steering wheel and the "clock spring" goes bad often enough

2004 freestar


the most common cause of this in your Ford based on my dealer related repairs would be a part called the rotating ribbon contact (Ford refers to this part as the Clock-Spring contact.) that connects the steering wheel airbag to the steering column wiring, this contact coils and uncoils as the wheel is turned left and right and makes a solid connection to all steering wheel mounted components and controls. To change this part you must dis-arm the airbag and remove the steering wheel, if u do this repair yourself it is very important that u dis-arm the SRS system before starting work, this can be done by disconnecting the battery for 1 hour.

2004 ford sport trac - cruise control no longer works


This problem is most times caused by an open circuit in the rotating contact under the steering wheel, this part is called the clock-spring contact, it supplies a connection to the airbag and steering wheel controls like the cruise, horn and radio controls. I would check the fuse as well to cover the bases, it is fuse #9 in the passenger compartment fuse box, it is a 7.5 AMP
