I thought only cars with airbags had a clocksprins. Nontheless, here is the best place to find a clockspring for and 87 stang, and how much do they usually cost? I do know for sure the fuse isnt causing this problem.
The contacts that revolve with the steering wheel and the
stationary plate they ride on attached to the column are
the clockspring assy as far as I know anyway.
My cruise went South, and I was able to find that assy
by advertising on the various Mustang board classifieds,
emailing guys that were advertising steering wheels, etc,
and looking on ebay and emailing guys that were advertising
steering wheels etc there.
I picked up a good used assembly, both parts, for
Might be good to pick up a used set of buttons/swtitches
in case you need them when you got your steering wheel
assembly apart / off. Found them the same way as I
did the clockspring / contacts.
On my 89, the same fuse runs the horn and the cruise.
I have a 92 GT and had the same problem... I replaced the clock spring and got the horn working but the air bag light was still on and still no cruise. There is a module (blue box) behind your stereo that will also probably need to be replaced to get the air bag working and light to go out. I got one at Pull-A-Part for $5 (dealer price $150). I replaced the blue box and my air bag is working correctly.
As for the cruise I still haven't figured that out yet. I think I may need to replace the switch on the steering wheel. The other thing is the switch on the brake pedal that may be deactivating the cruise too. Still trying to figure that one out.
