I would seriously recommend against not replacing it yourself..........unless you can follow exact instructions to the T.This procedure involves removing the airbag, and also involves a specialty tool to take up the tension on the back spring that holds tension against the lock-plate.This tool kit runs about $75 U.S. Dollars, and is available through some specialty tool carriers.I would hate to say yes you can go ahead and do it yourself, then forget to take on step and have the airbag deploy on you, that would run you another $175 just in the airbag module itself.This would be worth the money spent to a local repair shop to fix this, unless you feel confident enough in the repair of the clock spring.Get back to me if you have any questions, I hope I could help.

Care must be taken remove the airbag fuse and then remove the hord pad/ds airbag assemble you may need a special tool to do this like a TORX Bit with tamper proof hole in it T40 i think centre steering wheel and remove you may need to remove/loosen coloum trims to access clk spring unclip or unscrew. check that the assembly does not have an indicator that the clock spring is centred green tag or self tapper that locks the two bodys together goodluck

Can the clock spring stop my cruise control from activate, not even the indicator light in cluster .


If the clock spring is defective it can affect the cruise control if the buttons are on the steering wheel. Usually the horn will also be affected as well and the airbag light on constantly

Cruise controlnot working


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.

Horn and cruise control stop working


There is a device called a "clock spring" inside the steering wheel/column. It contains all the various wires to the buttons on the steering wheel. Sometimes these clock springs that wind and unwind every time the steering wheel is used simply wear out or break causing the problem you cite - no electricity gets to the buttons on the steering whell. Replacing the "clock spring" is mildly expensive. Parts and labor about 400-500 bucks.

My cruise control doesn't work??...any


jnjkingbird, It sounds like this problem is the clock spring as I don't believe that the horn and the cruise control would share a fuse. However, they do share a circuit in the clock-spring. You can check for power at each unit (horn and the cruise control) which would confirm this. Check each fuse as well. Good luck with this.

2000 ford f250 with 7.3 diesel horn and cruise stopped working. Replaced clock spring wireing harness but cruise still not working


Do you have a multiswitch on this? Cruise not working would indicate that to me. The horn you got working, then, with the clock spring wiring.

Check to see if the cable for actuating the cruise underneath the hood at the throttle body is broken or not.
