The air bag light has to do with the air bag sensors in the bumper being bad, or the air bag module being bad.

The cruise control not working has to do with a broken cable from the cruise control mechanism, or a blown fuse for cruise control, or the cruise control being turned off.

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.

Drivers side airbag light stays on


It might be a defective clockspring in the steering column. This also may cause the cruise control to not work at all or intermittently.

Horn doesn't work,abs light on dash stays on and also cruise control does not work either


Typical reason for no cruise and horn is a bad clock spring underneath the airbag. Typically you have an airbag light on as well and not an abs light

Back brake light stay on, replaced brake switch same problem.Truck has over drive and cruies control If you take switch out of circuit the brake lights stay on the same with the turn/hazard flasher.


Your brake lights and your turn signals go through the multifunction (turn signal) switch. It is common for these switches to short internally. Partial disassembly of the steering column is required to replace it. The airbag stsyem must be disabled, then the airbag removed from the steering wheel. Then the steering wheel must be removed to access the screw in the front of the switch assembly. The rest is pretty easy... a few screws holing the lower cover of the dash, the shroud around the steering column and a few connectors to deal with. (see pictures of switch assembly below)
There are two types of these switches available for 2000 S-10. With cruise control and without cruise control. The one WITHOUT cruise control is much more expensive!

Airbag light on dash stays on


sounds like the clockspring has become broken or maybe something is not connected under the steering column. Have an experienced tech look at this as the srs system can be very dangerous.

I have a 2001 Stratus. Airbag light stays on


That happened to me when the clock spring in the steering wheel broke. But the clock spring controls the air bags, horn and cruise control. Check if your horn and cruise control works. If not, I bet it's the clock spring from turning your wheel. It was about $150 to replace. Good luck!

Hey,
take a look at www.airbagmodul.com

They're working in Airbag-Simulators and Occupancy Sensor-Simulators.
