Horn and Cruise Control out

Just bought a 97 F250 on Wednesday and both the horn and cruise control worked. I tested both today driving down the road and neither worked. I looked at the fuse diagram and it appears that the CC is on the same fuse as the speedometer which still works. Any thoughts of what may have caused this and how it can be fixed?

Wiring in the column's screwy. Pull the center of the steering wheel toward you and check the simple to reach wiring that's under the horn cover. If nothings wrong then remove the column covers (removing the four screws from the underside and unscrewing the tilt lever if you have a tilt column). Check wiring in the column.

Sound like a clock spring to me. If it's on the same circuit as the speedometer and it works. That what I would check. Just pull the horn cover off and use an ohmmeter to check it.

Where on the steering wheel is it? And what do I need to check the volts on? There are a few wire connections but they appear to be sealed.

Its under the horn pad. It will be sealed and you may have to unscrew it. There is two connections on it just ohm them out to make sure that its does not have a broken circuit internally.
