Hi,

May be a fault with the " Clock spring " which is the cable inside the steering column. Look at the error code for the Air-bag, it should help you decide what is wrong.

I would test the pressure switch for continuity while the pedal is being pressed ,then if the switch is good i would say replace the clock spring as air bag & cruise are connected through the clock spring,ps just because horn still works doesn't mean its not the clock spring (good luck)
