SOURCE: engine cuts out when steering

Its probably an ignition switch wire shorting out when the column is being adjusted. Pull all plastic from column and check for loose or frayed wires or loose connectors.

Do you have an airbag light lit ? Are your cruise control buttons on the steering wheel . If so the clock spring could have an open circuit. A clock spring is a part inside the steering column , under the steering wheel . Check out this video on clock spring .
https://youtu.be/4jv2DW39drA if no airbag light ,then probably not this part.

Cruise control not working


You need to post the make and model of your car.

Generally if the cruise control light is on, on the dash indicator then the problem is in the steering wheel electrical connection.

Then internal wiring connecting the steering wheel cruise control switch is connected to the dash by a special wire called a clock-spring ribbon. This is located under/behind the steering wheel. It is not a self service repair item and required a good deal of expertise to repair. Sorry, but you will most likely need to take it to a qualified mechanic. Because the steering wheel also contains an airbag, do not attempt to do this repair yourself!!!

The horn and cruise control doesn't work,fuses are


sounds like a bad clockspring. located in steering column under steering wheel, operates airbag, horn cruise etc, it make wire connection possible so the wheel can spin, its a roll of flat wires, that unroll and roll up as steering wheel is truned from left to right,wires break after a while.

Cruise control shows power on but will not turn.


the most common cause of this is the rotating ribbon contact for the steering wheel switches is defective, this contact ribbon is under the steering wheel and is commonly called the clock spring contact.

Engine light stay on and off 1995 VW Jetta GLS


It's just bad timing. Aftermarket radios have nothing to do with cruise control. Cruise control is attached to your cable line for your pedal near your throttle. It'a normally a box attached next to it. That is running on the battery separately and maybe a sensor to warn if it's not working properly.
The radio factory radio, is attached to many sensors in cars. If you have one that worked with volume contols on steering wheel than you might of sparked a problem. If that is the case (where you could control factory radio on steering wheel), than all you need is to go to the dealer and ask them to reset your gauges and warning lights. let them know whats up. Might cost you nothing. Also when replacing certain parts, the cruise control might have been tampered with and doesnt work.Or has been detached. normally you will have a blinking light steady, blink and it disappears. But check with dealer for the reset.

After they have done this, check to see if it occurs again. If it does, than it might be a shorted out wire connecting one of the sensors from the large important parts you had replaced earlier and it was just result of coincidental timing.

especially when replacing timing belt and water pumps. Even mechanics make mistakes!
Good luck.

Why cruise control won't work on 2003 ford explorer


If you hit "On", cruise control is on. It's just not set to the speed.

To properly set the cruise control, do the following procedure:

  1. Select the "On" button on the left side of the steering wheel
  2. On the right side of the steering wheel, there is a "+" along with "Set", press that button after you have accelerated to the speed you desire to maintain.
  3. Use the "+ and -" to speed up or slow down your vehicle.
  4. To temporarly disable the cruise control, simply press the brake pedal.
  5. To resume the previously desired speed, press the top button "Resume"

Cruse controll


Pull up on the brake pedal. If that does not work check your brake light bulbs (LED brake lights will also keep your cruise control form working). Finally check all of the fuses. This system needs at least 3 different fuses to work properly.
