SOURCE: air bag light flashes 1 then 6

Common fault on FORD
Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.


Just push it together properly and it should clear the AirBag fault

SOURCE: the horn and cruise control doesn't work,fuses are

the horn input to ground is located in the cruise control module. if they both don't work then your cruise control module or the clockspring coil for the steering wheel needs to be replaced. If airbag lights is on as well then I would change the clockspring coil first.

SOURCE: air bag light on constant, horn not working,

you need to have the codes read for the air bag to know for sure which direction to start ,but yes, they are all tied in to the clock spring.

SOURCE: ford f350 horn and cruise control quit working,

It is most likely a part called a clockspring. It is located behind the steering wheel. When that part is defective you will almost definitely lose your horn, airbag, and cruise control. If it is not that it is probably corroded at the harness located on the steering column or at the cruise control module in the engine bay. If you have tilt, which you probably do, those wires can become frayed at the plug or directly after the plug at the column. I would start with fuses, then wires, then clockspring.

The horn switch and the air bag and cruise control wiring in the steering wheel go through the clock spring, ford calls it air bag sliding contact. The clock springs have been know to go bad.

Why would my cruise and horn both quit working at the same time?


most likely the clock spring under the sterring wheel is bad. Normally causes the air bag light to come on too.

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

1998 Ford windstar horn wiring


There is something called a clock spring in the column that is used for the airbag, horn and cruise control buttons. This clock spring if messed with will cause a/bag light to come on and possibly cause a/bag failure if there is a collision. DON"T mess with the wiring in the column. Run new wires in to the horn or install an a/market horn.

Air bag light is on and cruise control, lighter and horn don't work. There is a mechanism I'm sure in the steering wheel that needs to be changed. Is it dangerous to drive until I get it...


hi
im dave
if the air bag light is on that means the system is disabled. If you dont mind driving without an airbag than i would say it is no more dangerous than driving a pre air bag vehicle and those inherent dangers. Remember howevere that an air bag is a secondary resttraint system and should always be used in conjunction with the primary restraint system...your seatbelts.
