Really need more info...Did this happen all of a sudden..?..Do you use it often..?..Has it been worked on lately for any other reason..?What is the mileage.?..The first step would be check fuses and relays and all wiring connections..There is also a cruise switch located on the brake pedal lever near the brake light switch..This shuts it off..It is a common problem..You will need a test light to check fuses and switch...Sometimes I have seen the pedal switch get damaged by drivers foot so inspect it carefully....Send more info so I can be more of an assistant......Thank You..

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).

Cruise will not work on 2008 avalon

Make sure there aqre no warning lights on the dash on, check the brake fluid it needs to be near the full mark, check the brake lights and be sure they are all working, if the cruise indicator light does not turn on check the fuses on the inside dash at the lower left.

How do you use cruise control?

Should be a operater manual with car, if not, the left side of steering wheel is a small handle. On the end is a button. In the middle is a "resume" switch that is pussed with your thumb. While driving push the end button, the car should engage and power without your foot on the peddle. To go faster push the middle switch with your thumb toward steering wheel and that will increase the speed. When you put on the brake the cruise control should dis-engage. Need to practice with this on a safe road. You may need to go at least 40mph for it to operate. When the cruise is engaged a dash light should come on saying "cruise" - Good luck
