Cruise Control & horn in-op 2001 F-350

I just recently bought a 2001 F-350 7.3 4x4, when I got it the horn and cruise control worked, now they both quit at the same time. I checked the fuse and it is ok. The fasten seat belts light also started staying on, even when all of the belts are buckled.
Any thought or help would be appreciated.
David

It might be your clock spring inside the steering. Mine broke on my 99 and the horn quit working the cruise went out all at the same time. Mine was under warranty so I dont kknow how to check it or tell you what to look for. Maybe someone else will be along to help you out.

Follow up on the problem, there is a tape like wire on a reel under the steering wheel, and it has all of the conductors for the cruise control, horn, air bag. That wire broke, so it had to be replaced. The part was $80.00 and now everything works perfectly.

That "tape like" wire reel is what we refer to as a clockspring in the automotive industry..that is what TJ was reffering to...
