Steering Wheel Electrics

I'm sorry, I posted this thread in the wrong forum and can not figure out how to delete.

I have a 96 350 Van w/ a 7.3. The horn and Cruise Control do not work, and the Air Bag warning light blinks. All the appropriate fuses that I could find have continuity. Where else should I look?
Thanks in advance.
Dick

Dave,
It turned out to be the clock spring:

1996 FORD E-350 ECONOLINE Parts - AutoNation Ford White Bear Lake Parts (previously Tousley Ford Parts)

Hope this helps.
Dick

The trucks don't have what's nowadays called a "clockspring". It's just a set of concentric contact rings, IIRC they're built into the column. In any event, it's def. going to be different from the vans, since they have an air bag.

Sgt. Dave, is your truck speeding up with the cruise control, or just disengaging and then re-engaging?

the cruise control buttons on the steering wheel and the horn dont work. while im driving it feels like the cruise is ingaging then disingaging. makes for a jerky ride.
