Sounds like the clockspring in the steering column is bad,disconnect the negative battery cable before working on so the airbag will be disabled

Horn doesnt work after re-pack of airbag


The horn, cruse control and air bag each get power from the clock spring and each have a wire plugged no to it. The horn wire is probably not connected. When the clock spring breaks the horn and cruse control stop working and the air bag light stays on.

Brake lites on as soon i turn car on radio and horn dos not work sometimes the airbag lighitcomes on then the radio and horn is working and brake lightes is working normal wones the airbag light goes of ...


bad english accepted i come from the east end of london originally where english is the third language ,so what iam reading here is you have a problem with horn and the lights ,Now on this model if my memory serves me correct the brake lights will come on with the handbrake on ,but if its a auto version then the brake lights could be affected cruise control and what i think without a look myself is that the wires on the bottom of the steering wheel for the cruise and the radio horn ect run through the steering column and somehow they are damaged or twisted up and the only way is to remove the steering wheel to have a look ,to do this you must disconnect the battery first because if the airbag goes off accidently and your head is in the way then your dead .To get the stering wheel off you will have to remove the airbag unit first ,think its two torq 20 screws but it could be a 7mm headed nut ,remove the airbag then unplug it and then you can undo the big nut in the middle ,cannot remember the size of the nut though but once its off then the steering wheel comes off but its on a splined shaft so it may need a puller to get it off but i often use a piece of wood under a spoke and hit it with a 2kg hammer ,doesnt always work first time but normaly it does then you will tracks for the different controls .

Cruise controll


I guess the cruse is'nt working? You first need to look it over to see if everythings hooked up. Did it work for you before or you haven't seen it work? The switch on the dash will light after turning it on but the car has to be running for it to turn on . Does the light light? if not check the fuses and see if thier any blown? To check to see that everything is hooked up find the throttle body, one cablr goes to the gas pedal and the other goes to the cruse, follow this cable to the cruse unit and see if that unit has all it's wires and hoses connected. To check you remove them and reconnect them looking into the plug or hose for dirt rust bent pins. The hoses can crack on the inside and leak which will make it not engage. Follow these hoses to where thier connected to the engine and the brake pedal as they can split and be disconnected there too. The brake pedal switch has to work too as does the clutch switch ( if it has a clutch) If the brake lights don't work niether will the cruse. The hi mount brake light if the bulbs fail the cruse won't work. The switch on the steering wheel can get disconnected too as it's on a clockspring circuit as the steering wheel has to turn. Is the airbag light on? if it is and the horn does'nt work either it's likly that the clockspring is broken, If the horn works and the airbag light cycles like it's suposed to then the clockspring is likly OK. The speedometer has to work too as the speed senser that works it also works the cruse.If everything is working your problem could be more seriuos but it's not likly as this unit is quite reliable.

When the airbag light started flashing and decided to stay on the cruise control stopped working. you can also hear a rattle in the steering wheel. please help


Its the clock spring under the the centre of the steering wheel. You may find that the horn is not working as well as the cruse control, the clockspring connects the air bag sensor to the airbag in the centre of your steering wheel, it keep the connection in contact as the steering wheel turns.
You could replace it yourself if you take the steering wheel off but remember to disconnect the battery first as fiddling with airbags could cause them to go off!!!!

sounds like the steering wheel got turned during the proceedure to replace the shaft which means that you broke the clock spring which sits under the steering wheel.
