Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question
Do you notice that when you turn the steering wheel the cruise control cancels?
If it turns it's self off when turning the steering wheel that is a issue with the clock spring. That is what the steering wheel controls go through to operate the cruise control. If it breaks contact internally when the wheel is turned, the will cancel the cruise control. So that would need to be replaced to resolve your issue.
If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.

It is not recommended for a DIY since it involves the Air Bag system. The drivers air bag needs to be removed, steering wheel is removed then the clock spring is removed. Once replaced and after it's assembled, then you need to set the steering angle sensor to zero point.
No.. That would not affect it internally
If you had a steering rack replaced.. Maybe.. But not a simple wheel alignment...
Do you have any more questions on this?
If your cruise control sets and is working, but as soon as you turn the steering wheel it shuts off, that is 100% your issue.
The internal contacts can not be tampered with since the air bag system is part of it.
What I would say is if your driving and you are going straight, and you turn the system on and it works, but if you find it cancels as you turn the steering wheel, that is 100% your issue..
When it comes to air bag systems, I never recommend for customers to tamper with them or work on them for safety reasons.
I don't want to take any responsibility for anything happening when working on a air bag system. That is why I don't recommend it.
