SOURCE: horn button and cruise control do not work on 1998

It's not really hard. However, it does require a few special tools like a steering wheel puller. The MOST LIKELY cause of your problem is that the contact assembly (also called "clockspring" or "spiral cable") in your steering column is broken. The supplemental restraint system must be deactivated to prevent accidental airbag deployment. Other than this, it is just a few screws and a couple of nuts and bolts.

If you would like to take a shot at this yourself, most of the large parts outlets like AutoZone and Advance have "loaner" tools that you can use to do the job. Check with your local parts supplier to see if they have a steering wheel puller available.

Then, if you would like COMPLETE instructions (including diagrams) on how to do the job, I can supply them for you.

Just click on my profile picture below and go to my FixYa page. Click the tab that says "Pro Services". When the page opens up, click any of the services listed. (It doesn;t really matter which one - they will ALL connect you with me) Sign up for Email support. Be sure to include the Year, Make, Model, Engine Size, and a brief description of what we are trying to fix in your message (just so I don't mix you up with someone else).

SOURCE: Horn button and cruise control do not work on my 1998 Toyota Sienna. Air bag light is on. How do I fix this?

This is caused by a part called the clock-spring rotating contact ribbon, it is a coiled up circuit ribbon that connects the steering wheel button and airbag to the steering column electrics. it is under the steering wheel. It needs to be replaced. This can be a dangerous job due the Airbag, so if you do want to try and replace it disconnect the battery negative cable for 15 minutes prior to start of work. The part is about $150.00 You will need special tools.

Cruise control and horn stopped working


Check your fuses first, then a vacuum leek second. To reset the air bag light unplug the battery for 30 seconds then reconnect. If the light comes back on take it to a garage as the air bag can be very dangerous.

Horn & Cruise control doesn't work


The clock spring has gone bad. You will have to remove the steering wheel to gain access to the clock spring (used to be called the turn sig. switch) But if you are going to perform this repair make sure you dis-connect the battery before you began because you could set off the air bag in the steering wheel

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.

Cruise Control and Horn stopped working.


Is the AIR bag light on too? Sounds like it might be a bad clockspring.

I have a 2001 Dodge Neon and I'm having problems with air bag light on, horn doesn't work and cruise control that stop working all at the same time. Have any idea what is wrong with it?


my guess is that the steering column is not grounded, the horn works with a grounding circuit with thesteering shaft, so probably so is the air bag

1999 toyota avalon horn works intermitely


I would suggest to you to have the spiral cable (or 'clockspring') replaced. This is the electrical unit that transfers power to the air bag, the horn and the cruise control.

It is located right under the seering wheel.

Your description of the issue indicates to me that your spiral cable is loose, and making intermittant contact. If the vehicle had an air-bag deployment, this cable-device should have been changed.
