Hello Chris,

The one thing the cruise control, horn and the air bad share is the connections inside the clock spring. The clock spring is the rotating contacts just behind the steering wheel. This very likely your problem, as this a very common concern of Ford truck. Im sending you a check test The steering wheel needs to be removed to replace the clockspring. Let me know if I can assist.graphicto determine this.
