Cruise stopped working

Post by Sheridan » Sun Feb 02, 2020 9:12 am

In addition to my airbag code 12 light my cruise control is not working. I go to press the on button but get nothing. Any ideas?

The cruise control signal is derived from the gearbox speed sensor which is in parallel with the speedometer.
So, if the speed sensor is faulty you lose both.
If your speedometer is working then it is either the cruise control unit or a wiring fault from the buttons.

Is it possible that it’s all tied in with your airbag issue, as it all goes through the steering wheel, could the clock spring be playing up?
I think I am correct in saying the clock spring

That's what I was thinking, seems odd that I have both issues around the same time. My Speedo is working ok btw.

So does anyone have a clock spring for a 95 24v with cc?

Actually, what is a clock spring?? Haha easy to fix?
Thanks

It's a unit that sits behind the steering wheel, and enable such things like Airbag, Cruise control and horn to work whilst moving the wheel about.

Google Clockspring and you should find one.

Does your horn work?

I think my horn works, will check though. Thanks for the info - fingers crossed this fixes it.
