9'er- No horn, cruise or stereo controls...fuses good.

I recently picked up a nice 9'er in white. Nothing works on the steering wheel other than the steering. Blinkers, flashers and all other electrical good, and no bad fuses.

Any suggestions? Searched but did not find anything.

Thanks.

I really need some help with this. Checked everything I could think of. No horn, cruise or stereo controls on the back side of the steering wheel.

_____and the clocksprings have it! Please be careful around the airbag, disconnect battery and wait 10seconds or so for the capacitors to discharge.

Korea gave me instructions on how to check the clockspring for my cruise control on post #3 of this thread: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/a...stion-1462943/

A huge thanks to all of you, I really appreciate it. I'll check out Korea's thread. I hate to admit it but I've never heard of a clockspring.

If it tests out bad, what's the routine? I guess I'll need one for/from a Limited, is that right?

Thanks again, big help. Trying to get this thing on the road. Texas...No pollution controls, no problem. No horn, No driving.

The clockspring allows the wires from the switches on your steering wheel, as well as the horn and the air bag, to maintain connectivity with the wires in the steering column while you spin the steering wheel.

Be ready for sticker shock. IIRC, the part is over $200

Yes, I've noticed they are not cheap. I sent an e-mail to Kolak and will check ebay, stealership and yards after I get mine out and have a part #.
