Please remember that your rating should be based on the service you received. Not if you were unhappy about the results. If for some reason you question did not get answered please reply.

Hi there. Thank you for posting your question!

I’m a retired master technician and tech instructor with over 30 years experience. I also have access to a pretty good database on automotive service and repair. All of which enables me often times to offer you an educated guess on what the problem with your vehicle might be. However, if you’re thinking on working on the vehicle yourself, all my knowledge and resources won’t help you if you…

… don’t have tools or the skill to use them

… don’t realize it may take a few back and forth replies to solve the issue

… are not aware of the fact that there will probably be some special tools and equipment needed for a proper diagnosis

Having said that, the only link between horn, DIC and cruise control is the clock spring that connects switches on the steering wheel to the harness on the steering column. So, I would say that clock spring has failed.

Best Regards.
