Check the horn fuse, my cruise went out and it was because that fuse popped.

Does your lights in the steering wheel still work? If not, the ribbon wiring inside the column broke. It is easy to replace.

Ok, that's making sence now that all the lights on my cruise controls are out, and horn, and cruise isn't working. Any body know how to fix that, and how much the "Clock Spring" is?

I've only done a few of them and never on a super duty, but if u unbolt the air bag from the back of the wheel (un hook Both batterys and wait 10 mins)
and unplug airbag. behind that ther will be a large nut undo that take the wheel off, probly gonna have too pull real hard to get the wheel off and theres the clock spring. make sure u make a mark on the wheel and steering shaft so the wheel goes back on straight.
the clock spring will probly be $50-$75
