How do I take the buttons off the steering wheel without the air bag popping out?

1. To be even safer, disconnect the negative battery terminal and leave it disconnected at least 20 to 30 minutes before beginning. Leave it disconnected until you have everything back together. Has been done it with the battery connected but NOT recommended. How you proceed is up to you.

2. On either side of the center section of the steering wheel are 2 round trim plugs about an inch or so in diameter, textured just like the wheel. Carefully, so as not to damage them, pry them out. Beneath each one is a small bolt. Remove both bolts.

3. Now the airbag slides out from the steering wheel. READ carefully: turn the airbag 90 degrees in a horizontal plane so it is facing to the side. It should not be facing either the wheel, or you. If it blows for some strange reason, we want the force to go to the side and not towards you, or towards the wheel and blow the frame BACK at you.

4. Remove the connector and harness from the airbag. Put the airbag carefully aside, minding that the frame has sharp edges and can scratch things in your truck.

5. Each cruise pod has a ribbon cable going to a black connector. Carefully pry out the black connector from each pod.

6.
Now remove the two screws holding each pod in and remove them. They look like this when you get them out

just out of Curiosity does your horn work?

If not then most likely the clockspring, its located in the steering column under the steering wheel its basically just a coil of paper type material with a copper strand going through it which transfers power to anything that needs it in the steering wheel.

Enter self-test diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel
will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. Five additional flashes at this point indicate a defective speed control servo. Release the OFF switch.
Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.
If the ON switch is not depressed within five seconds after entering the diagnostics mode, the module times out and the procedure must be started over.
The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.
NOTE: There will be a slight delay when the last button is pressed and the lamp flashes.

A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the static test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.
If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:
2 flashes - BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped).
3 flashes - deactivator switch is open or circuit defective.
4 flashes - vehicle speed signal is out of range or circuit is defective
Immediately (.25 second delay) after the static test, the speed control servo does a dynamic test by automatically actuating the throttle lever from 8 mm (0.315 in) to 12 mm (0.472 in) of travel from the idle position. During the dynamic throttle pull, observe throttle movement to witness any binding or sticking of the speed control cable and correct connection of speed control cable to throttle lever. Make sure the throttle returns to the idle position.


this is the lil test thing i did and got 2 flashes

Did ur truck receive the recall from ford for the cruise control

I ask cause there are numerous threads when you google BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP sqitch or jumper, if equipped

And it is a result from the recall ford had on the cruise control

And in 9-10 cases the fuse has become wet and blown resulting in the CC not working

They add a fused jumper wire like this
