Which fuse to change for steering wheel lights and gear shifter lights 2010 ford edge


It's not a fuse , the SJB - smart junction box controls these lights ! This is fords body control module . If the Heater / A/C control panel ,hazard switch ,headlamp switch , message center switch all work, it is not a fuse . The gear shifter I would say the bulb is burnt out . The steering wheel lights could be out because of an open in the clock spring . The clock spring is a device inside the steering column under the steering wheel that keeps your horn , cruise control , radio buttons etc... connected electrically . How cars clock spring works

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!!!

On my 2004 mercury sable, the horn and cruise control has stopped working. I know the horn still works (still honks when I lock the doors), and I have checked the fuses which seem to be in working order. ...


Since I can't find a bad fuse, I'll check the clockspring.
icon1.gif You must emove the air bag in the steering wheel to get to the clock spring. Unless you feel you understand the air bag system 100%, and feel comfortable disconnecting the air bag, I suggest you take it to a professional for repair. This is not hard to fix. The Airbags are already disabled by if your airbag light is on. This is done automatically when the system senses a fault to protect occupants. What you have to do is unsrew the 2 screws on the side of the steering wheel and then remove the cables that go to the airbag and cruise control. Then you need to unscrew the one star bolt that holds the steering wheel in and use a steering wheel pully to pull off the steering wheel and there should be 3 screws holding the clockspring in. You need to remove the clockspring and replace it with one from the junk yard. Theres no reason why someone should charge you for more than 1 hour labor to do this. It doesnt take longer than that make sure you dissconnect battery first before you do this is your air bag light staying on

Steering wheel control switches no longer light up at night. Is it as easy as popping off the switch ? I was told to be careful that i could set off the air-bag and that the steering wheel has to come...


I had the same problem. The steering wheel controls are very easy to pop off with a small thin screwdriver. Once they are loose just unplug them. Order new ones from your local Chevy dealership. They weren't very expensive. If I remember correctly they were only about $35 each. Just make sure to get the correct color to match your interior.

Air bag light is on... The str wheel controls r never correct


You have a bad clock spring. This is located behind the steering wheel and all electrical functions from steering wheel must go thru it. Pretty common problem on this model. The steering wheel and the steering column trim would have to be removed to replace it.
