Nope. Sorry to tell you there is no such thing as "just a fuse". Even if there IS a blown fuse involved, I can promise you that the fuse did not CAUSE the problem. Fuses do not cause electrical circuit problems - Electricl circuit problems cause blown fuses. This may sound trivial, but unless you can understand this simple "cause and effect", you will spin your wheels for days trying to figure out any electrical problems in your vehicle. Don't feel bad, probably 95% of the motoring public does not quite understand this....you are with the MAJORITY.

With all that said, you most likely have a broken contact assembly (also sometimes called "clockspring") in your steering column. This is the part that allows the electrical connections to be made at the steering wheel while at the same time, allowing the steering wheel to be turned around in circles. (See "A" in the diagram below.)

Here's the other bad news:
On most cars, the clockspring is available as a separate piece. However, according to the information I have available, the steering column on your VolksWagen is serviced only as a COMPLETE unit. Only the steering wheel, airbag module, and ignition lock cylinder can be transfered. So, you might be in for an expensive repair.

check cruise control fuse and check the brake lights see if brake light working because the brake light switch will deactivate cruise control when brakes is applied.if brake lights dont work either fuse blowed or switch bad.if all is good have vechicle code scan because cruise control control by PCM and vechicle speed sensor and thottle actuator control motor.

2003 Lincoln ls v-8 cruise control won't engage. Light won't come on or anything when I hit the button. Everything else work fine.


My 2001 Lincoln ls cruise control will not work. Put in a new clockspring and that did not fix it. radio controls and horn work but the air bag light stays on continually after starting. The lights on the cruise side will go on an off -I have bought that part to replace but don't want to put on if that is not the problem.

2006 dodge stratus won't crank and cruise control won't light


Must not have been much of a mechanic. If the engine runs and sounds fine sometimes and other times it doesn't then it does not sound like a mechanical problem with the engine. Sounds more like a issue with either the ignition system or fuel system.

My cruise control light does not turn on when I push the button. I am thinking it is a fuse but it is not labeled in the 2 fuse copartments. Can you please tell me which fuse is for the cruise control on...


Is your cruise control working? Check your brake lights and make sure that they are all working. If they aren't working your cruise control won't work that includes the light.
