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

Check for working airbags before buying a used 2002 golf.

The airbag light is on the speedometer head. It looks like a person sitting blowing a big bubble. It should come on when you turn the key on and go off about 4-5 seconds after the engine starts. If your airbags were missing you would know it. The horn pad on the steering wheel that says VW on it is the airbag. If you removed it a bunch of wires would be hanging from the steering wheel and you would be looking at the nut that holds the steering wheel on.

Installed new rack ,have air bag light on

The steering wheel needs to be prevented from rotating when it is disconnected from the steering linkage. The airbag system uses a rotational sensor that is just below the steering wheel mounted airbag. (Often called a clock-spring)
I suspect is was damaged during your repair.
The airbag fault codes need to be read to confirm.
Good luck.

Airbag light indication is on my dash chevrolet venture 2002

Need to have the SRS system scanned for codes. Then they can pinpoint the faulty sensor or module. Call a few shops first as not all of them can or willl do it.

Heater core out of a GMC Suburban 1997 how difficult for a DIYer and how expensive to have done. Thanks

It's a pretty big job you have to pull the steering wheel diable the airbag and pull out the entire dash. the heater core itself shpuld cost from 100-200 dollars but labor will run you about 500-800 dollars. good luck.

Try replacing airbag light fuse. It usu' indicates some damaged wiring if it continues to blink. Also there might be a short in wiring due to water.
