I haven't heard of any common problems with the cruise control on the E36.

Good luck

hmm.. follow the wire harness coming out of the steering column. check the terminal connectors. With some luck maybe it was jst a loose connection that made your horn and CC inoperable.

i don't remember if yours uses a vacuum actuator(check vacuum connection), also check and see the cable/linkage play is correct.

It's nice to see you still here. it has been a year i was out of circulation. I'm back; at least until my next assignment! :-)
