Honk, cruise control stopped working and the airbag light…

Customer Question
Honk, cruise control...

Honk, cruise control stopped working and the airbag light came on in my 2010 toyota highlander.

Mechanic's Assistant: While using the cruise control can you accelerate or decelerate? Have you checked the fuses?

Checked the horn fuse and it appears to be okay. Cruiuse control does not engage.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Highlander yourself? What have you tried so far?

Guy at the auto parts store said it could be the brake light switch, replaced it to no avail.

Sounds like a broken clockspring.

Allows many electrical circuits to function within the steering wheel.

How much is involved in replacing a broken clockspring?
Toyota Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

Steering wheel off, remove and replace clockspring assembly, perform steering angle sensor learn.

About 1 hour for a Toyota dealer technician, plus clockspring.
