    Just wondering if these systems are tied together. Since I have had the car the cruise control has not worked. I also gets 9 flashes on the airbag light. Just wondering if this is what might be causing the cruise control not to work. I have owned cars that the cruise control would not work on because the check engine light was on. Just wondering if this is a possibility. Gonna try to get the airbag light fixed in the next couple of days. From the only previous post I could find about 9 flashes it looks like a bad ground for one of the sensors. Anyone else had 9 flashes?

    Thanks

    They are in the sense that the wiring for both goes through the clockspring on the top of the steering column. Otherwise, no they are not tied together.

    If your horn still works, your clock spring is still functioning.
