All the controls on the steering wheel on my 1988 nissan 300zx stopped working all of a sudden (radio controls and cruise control). How do I fix it?

    Would this also prevent the on/off switch of the cruise control on the dash to not work?

This is Indicative of the CLOCK SPRING Below the Steering Wheel, It is what Enables you to Have Electronic Controls There @ Wheel . Sort of A SLINKY Looking Wiring Set Up . Steering Wheel Must Be Removed to Replace this Component.

Audio controls do not work on nissan altima


hi
long story short, your car problem is, the spiral cable is braking up.
it fits under the steering wheel,
spiral cable is the part that connect the moving side (steering wheel)function buttons, horn, air bag, to the fixed side (car electric loom).
good luck

Cruise control stopped working


check brake switch under dash above the brake pedal. See if sensing wires are broken . or if it uses a duplicate switch sensor check it is engaging properly. Also check you tube on possible failures.
Also in the engine bay the cable from the accelerator petal will attach to the trottle on the engine. Check for another cable at this location from the cruise control and check the cable is not broken .

Check brake globes are functioning and are not blown as well.

Horn, cruise control, and radio controls on steering wheel do not work ?


The clockspring behind the steering wheel is possibly defective or unplugged. It is the one and only component that all of your symptoms have in common.

Fix this please


If your horn doesnt work either you have to remove the steering wheel and there is the connector for the horn/cruise control. If nothing broken there, check the clock spring too!

Cruise control,and radio controls on steering wheel, now air bag


The problem is the coiled ribbon contact under the steering wheel (we call it the clock-spring contact) that connects the stereing wheel controls to the steering column wiring harness, this is a printed circuit that is coiled to allow the wheel to move and still have a psychical contact for the wheel switch's and the airbag, anyway replace that contact coil, u must disarm the airbag to do this repair, follow the factory procedure to do this or serious injury can result if the airbag fires.
