cruise control buttons

Ok here is the deal I have never had this happen to me in the last 8 yrs of driving thunderbirds. So I was heading to Nederland east of Houston and I was going to set my cruise control and let it go from there since it is 370miles just going down there from denton. The only thing is when I went to turn this on the horn went off. I have to ask now did the manual transmission SC's come with cruise control? cause I havent actually seen this or heard of this happening before.

caution: pedestrians can cause major track hypnosis spurring quick side to side movements, squealing tires, drifting and outrageous smiles in skilled drivers. only cure for this is get the crazy SC diver out from behind the wheel!!!

Your horn and steering-wheel-mounted cruise-control switches all operate via a sliding contact assembly in your steering wheel known as a clock-spring - your clock-spring may be bad and need to be replaced.
