Question about 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT Minivan
Wondering if anyone could identify the location of the fuse that controls the Cruise Control. I see a lot of folks on this site that indicate the fuse may be bad but for many folks that are unfamiliar have no idea where the fuses are or which one to check out..
Look on the panel that covered the fuse box that you removed to get to the fuses. There will be a picture with corresponding numbers to as to which fuse controls what and what number it is.
Does that help out ?

The cruise has no dedicated fuse, you will most likely be looking to replace the clockspring rotating contact located under the steering wheel which connects the switches in the steering wheel (horn, cruise and air-bag) to the rest of the electrical system.

there was a recall on the clockspring. If you havent replaced it, that could be the problem. you can have it done at a dealership free of charge.

I had the same problem and yes, it was covered by the recall warranty - clockspring, which my dealer replaced for nothing. The warranty recall is lifetime, so it doesn't matter how old the vehicle is or if you are the original owner.

did you chech relays the are located under the hood in a black box it should say fuses only buy on relay at a time if the are see thru you can tell if they have a break in them or use a tester the big black square relays you cant see thru just buy one and check each relay until your problem is fixed also check your fluid level in your trans too much is a big problem and might cause hard shifting but it sounds like a relay switch

The horn, cruise, and air bag light is probably the clock spring inside the steering colum. The rest of your problems could be a fuse but not sure on that. However The other problem because of the air bag is a safety issue and was Recalled. Call your local Chrysler dodge dealer with your Vin number and they should set up an appointment for you to get it fixed for free. (part of the recall) Good luck

Tips for a great answer:

The brake pedal position (BPP) sensor
The body control module (BCM)
The cruise on/off switch
The + RES switch (equivalent to resume/accel switch)
The - SET switch (equivalent to set/coast switch)
The engine control module (ECM)
The clutch pedal position (CPP) sensor, if equipped with a manual transmission
The throttle actuator control (TAC) motor
The vehicle speed sensor
The body control module (BCM) monitors the signal circuit of the cruise control switches, which are located on the steering wheel. The BCM relays the cruise control switch status to the engine control module (ECM) via the GMLAN serial data circuit. The ECM uses the status of the cruise control switch to determine when to capture and maintain the vehicle speed. The ECM monitors the vehicle speed signal circuit in order to determine the desired vehicle speed. The ECM uses the TAC motor in order to maintain the vehicle speed. For further information on the TAC system, refer to Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description for the 2.2L engine or to Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description for the 2.4L engine.
Ignition voltage is supplied to the cruise control switch from the 2-ampere EPS fuse located in the integrated BCM fuse block. The cruise control function switches are arranged in a resistive ladder design, with each cruise control function switch having a different resistance value. The BCM detects a specific voltage value that is associated with the cruise control function switch being activated. When the normally open cruise control on/off switch is turned ON, the switch closes and the BCM sends a GMLAN serial data message to the ECM indicating that the on/off switch is active. Similarly, when the normally open + RES switch or the normally open - SET switch are pressed, the switch closes and the BCM detects the predetermined voltage signal on the cruise control switch signal circuit. The BCM sends a GMLAN serial data message to the ECM indicating that the + RES switch or the - SET switch is active. The + RES switch or the - SET switch will remain inactive when the BCM has not received the predetermined voltage signal from the on/off switch.
Unless the air bag light is lit too , your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop.

NOT EXACTLY WHAT YOU ASKED BUT VALUABLE INFO I THINK YOU'LL AGREE?
There are several common cruise control failures on Saabs. The pedal switch failures are the most common problem. What generally occurs is that the pedal switches become mis-adjusted or the ears get broken off the switches causing a no contact condition. Another common problem is that the cruise vacuum hose leading from the vacuum pump under the false bulkhead begins to crack where the vacuum fitting is located at the firewall.. The third most common failure is an intermittent functioning cruise control module. This can often be identified by noting that the cruise will work intermittently (900 & 9000 only).
Another Issue: On turbo models, there is a vacuum controlled switch, located near the pump (red cap) that cuts the signal to the APC solenoid valve when the cruise control is on (switch opens). If the switch is faulty (I broke mine on rough road), it can keep turbo boost at the "basic" level even if the cruise is turned off. The APC boost gauge will only go half-way into the yellow region, and performance will suffer. Either replace the vacuum controlled switch or pull the pigtail connector below the switch and short the ends of the yellow/white wire going to the APC solenoid valve and
proper turbo boost should return. Be aware that if this second fix is employed, your turbo is not limited in boost when in cruise control.
