C280: I hit a 4 x 4 piece of wood in the highway, it was about

Customer Question

I hit a 4 x 4 piece of wood in the highway, it was about maybe 2 ft. long....hit it with my left front tire....should say ran over it....and of course it went BAM ! so I pulled over....tire didn't go flat...but when I started back on the road , the cruise didn't work....made it home and my husband took off the had a big bulge in the middle of the outside of tire...had bent the rim away from the rim on outside where it hit and then on the inside it is really bent away from the tire in a pretty good space of about maybe 3 inches...very strange that it didn't go question is what do you think happened to the cruise? could it just be a fuse or ?? It is a 1997 c280 Mercedes.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** could have hot the front wheel speed sensor on that wheel, is the ABS light on when driving?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No, no lights of any kind came on after the hit or have come on since....

ok, he needs to check the wiring at the sensor on that wheel, if it is damaged, it will not let the cruise control come on, its really the only thing in that area tha will effect the cruise control, can he do that?
