Turn your steering wheel around to where the cruise control buttons are straight up and tilt wheel down makes it easier. Very carefully with a thin screwdriver pry it off (the clips break real easy so be gentle) once it comes off you will see the plug in. Unplug it.

How to install part sw5928 cruise control switch to a 1998 ford ranger


1 Open the hood and loosen the clamp bolt on the negative battery cable with an adjustable wrench turned in a counterclockwise direction. Pull the cable straight up and off of the terminal and push it aside. Wait 15 minutes, before continuing this procedure, to allow the air bag circuitry to deactivate.
2 Pry the two plastic screw covers from the rear of the steering wheel spokes in the passenger compartment with a flat blade screwdriver. Remove the two screws revealed after removing the covers with an 8 mm socket attached to a ¼-inch drive ratchet wrench turned in a counterclockwise direction.
3 Lift the horn pad straight up from the top of the steering wheel. Carefully pull the air bag wiring harness connector from the bottom of the horn pad. Set the horn pad aside.
4 Remove the two screws holding each cruise control switch (there are two switches, one on each side of the steering wheel) with a Torx screwdriver turned in a counterclockwise direction. Lift up on the switch and pull the wiring connector apart with your thumb and forefinger. Repeat this action for both switches. Remove the switches from the steering wheel.
5 Install the new switches (make sure the "On/Off" switch is on the right-hand side) onto the steering wheel using the original mounting holes. Tighten the holding screws with a Torx screwdriver turned in a clockwise direction.
6 Push the air bag wiring connector back into the bottom of the horn pad until it is fully seated. Place the horn pad into position on the steering wheel. Tighten the holding screws from the back of the steering wheel with an 8 mm socket and ratchet. Push the two screw covers into the back of the steering wheel until they snap into place.
7 Place the negative battery cable back onto the terminal and tighten the clamp nut in a clockwise direction with an adjustable wrench. Close the hood.

Look inside on the drivers side for the fuse/relay panel under the dash. To get to the panel,remove the lower steering column cover and kneepad. You will see the panel and everything is marked so you can check the correct fuse or relay. Use a test light to do all of your testing. Also under the hood on some models are more fuses and relays controlling other options on the van. Remove the cover and look inside cover for the correct location of the fuse and relay. Hope this will help you.

I cannot figure out how to pull the steering wheel off of my 96 honda accord


Read this carefully, in total, before you begin.

With car wheels aimed straight ahead, disconnect the neg. battery terminal (if you have an anti-theft radio, make sure you have the code, because you will need it.)

Wait three minutes before proceeding to allow the airbag’s backup power supply to be depleted.

Remove the access plate from the lower steering column cover and remove the short connector from the access plate (the short connector is stowed on the inside of the access plate. It is a little device that is used especially for this purpose)

Unplug the airbag module-to-cable reel connector (yellow) and plug the short connector into the airbag module side of this connection to disable the airbag.

Remove the access panels from each side of the back of the steering wheel cover, then remove both of the torx screws (you’ll need a torx screwdriver) that retain the airbag module to the steering wheel.

Pull the module off the steering wheel and CAREFULLY set it aside with the trim side facing up.

Unplug the electrical connector for the horn, and, if you have it, for the cruise control.

Remove the steering wheel retaining nut. Paint or scribe a mark indicating the relationship of the steering wheel hub to the steering shaft.

Remove the steering wheel with a steering wheel puller. DO NOT turn the steering shaft while the steering wheel is removed. If you do so, the airbag reel could be damaged.

Reinstallation is the reverse of the removal, making sure the cable reel is centered with the car wheels straight ahead (if you haven't moved the shaft, that should not be a problem), and making sure that the locating pins on the steering column engage the holes in the back of the steering wheel. Put the nut back. Torque it (36 ft. lbs). Reconnect horn and cruise control. Replace airbag, tighten torx screws. Reconnect airbag and put short connector back in access plate. Reconnect neg. battery cable.

Hope this helps you.

I need to repace the cruise control switch how do I get the horn cover off


1. Remove the lower steering column cover.
2. Remove the AIR BAG bolts from the back side of the steering wheel with a T-30 socket. Install the bolts back in the air bag for reassembly. The AIR BAG will snap into place when pushed down on carefully.
3. Remove 2 screws on the bottom of the steering wheel cover. The wires need to slide out so the switch can be removed.
4. Remove the cruise control switches.

The AIR BAG does not have to be disconnected to remove the switches, just don't let it flop around or stretch the wires.
