Cruise Control button malfunction

My cruise does work, however the buttons on the steering wheel do not work properly. The set/decel button works exactly as it's supposed to. The cancel button works EXACTLY like the set/decel button and the resume/accel button doesn't work at all. This started a month ago. I replaced the whole switch assembly couple of weeks back and everything started working as it should. Fast forward to this morning on my way to work and the new switch is acting just like above. So, the issue isn't resolved. I searched and haven't see this problem anywheres. Any ideas before I pay the dealership to diagnosis? TIA Drew

Re: Cruise Control button malfunction

Since the other buttons work it's likely not the spiral wire that connects the buttons to the main wiring harness. The buttons work by presenting different resistances on the wire, so if the others work, the wire is most likely good.

Re: Cruise Control button malfunction

I don't know about the RL but on other vehicles I've had CC issues like that are often related to the clockspring.

Re: Cruise Control button malfunction

I've wondered the same thing. There is no clockspring or clock spring mentioned in the FSM.

Re: Cruise Control button malfunction

The spiral wire Chiph mentioned is commonly referred to as the "clock spring" by many technicians. That's what they look like and in the early days of steering wheel controls other then the horn, that's what they were called.
