    I tried to look back and find I made a post back in October about my cruise control not working and then it started working again but now it’s not no power to the switch no vacuum leaks I’m thinking it might be the clock spring any help would be greatly appreciated no lights on on the dash.

    If the issue is the clockspring are you experiencing other issues? The clockspring connects items mounted on the rotating steering wheel so the electric connections won't break when the steering wheel is rotated. Generally horn,wipers,cruise etc are affected. Recommendations are to replace with new OEM but the Dorman product should be fine too. Post up what you decide.

    That’s what got me puzzled no other problems no codes everything else is working. I have checked the vacuum
    No leaks. I had the steering wheel apart and no power to the switch I don’t find a fuse just for the cruise so I checked all of the fuses all good no relay just for the cruise only relay that’s close is the horn and the horn works. I have a new clock spring I’m going to replace tomorrow so I guess we’ll see. I guess it could be the actuator IDK got me. Thanks for the help.

    My JK has cruise but since I avoid the highways whenever possible I can’t recall using cruise control. Depending upon your commute think you can ignore CC for a bit longer? Can you supply a test voltage to the switch to see if the CC works?

    Well ordered the clock spring and it’s the wrong one. So we’ll keep looking.

    I’m sorry how would I test the switch??
