Loss of functionality in all buttons on steering wheel including horn. 2001LS

I have lost all functionality in the controls located on the steering wheel of my 01 lincoln ls including the horn itself. I was wondering wether this is a fuse problem a wiring problem or if its even a do it yourself situation.

Check your fuses first, if it isn't a fuse it is not a do it yourself situation. The lincoln stearing wheel has a ton of electronics in it along with the air bag.

My horn isn't working on a Chevy equinox but it's a new horn. What could be wrong with it..and my cruise control don't qork. Is it my steering wheel?


Was Cruise Control working before the New Horn was installed? The power supply to the Horn, (input to ground wire) is connected to the Cruise Control Module (CCM). This CCM is wired to the Relay Switch Box located in the Engine Bay. The Relay Box cover will have a Chart indicating what function each Relay coresponds to. Your local autoparts store (AutoZone) can test the Relay Switch, and you'll know (if any Relay) need to be replaced.

The CCM is also wired to the Steering Wheel, but first passes through the Clock Spring Coil, located just behind the Steering Wheel. The Clock Spring allowes for the Function Buttons on the Steering Wheel to have power while Steering Wheel spins.

The Clock Spring can malfunction or break, its rare, but this will cut power to the Function Buttons on Steering Wheel. If ALL the buttons on Steering Wheel dont work, then the Clock Spring is the Culprit. The Coil may need to be replaced.

The Cruise Control Module itself may have failed and also would cause a few or all Steering Wheel Functions to quit working.

But first check the Relay Switch Box and examine the Harness Cables connecting (Steering Wheel--to--CCM--to--Relay Switch Box--to--Battery Supply).

Also if Cruise Control was working before the new Horn was installed and now not working, then most likely the Problem is a bad wire connection somewhere and/or is a faulty Relay.

What is the horn relay location for 1979 trans am?


The dual horns are located between the radiator and engine...the horn button controls the circuit...you must remove the steering wheel to gain access to the horn button spring assembly...pre-air bag so not a big deal to remove the steering wheel on your 79 T/A...hope this helps.

Horn not working


Horns have power to them all the time. When you push the horn button, you are completing a circuit by providing a Ground.


Before the horn gets it's power for the 2003 Pontaic GrandAm, the power goes through a Horn Relay. (Number 21 relay)

It may be a bad relay, horn slip ring contact button, (Located under steering wheel), or bad horn/s.

The horns are located up under the front air dam, tucked up close to the air conditioner condenser. VERY hard to get to.
