Gen2.5 cruise control switch on steering wheel

Cruise is currently not working.

Tested the switch on the steering wheel via the connector under the column. Get continuity only when the cancel part is pulled. No resistance on any other action.

Am I not testing this right? Manual says the other functions should feed a voltage around 5 to the cruise ecu.

Yes
Ibwasnchecking resistance between the wires that go to the switch on the wheel.

the switch itself isn't making voltage... volts are coming in, and then getting sent back out. Unless there is some computer chip in the switch, I would think that you should be able to probe all of the positions of the switch.

That's what I did. No continuity or resistance reading on the acc/res or coast/set. The cancel has continuity and minimal resistance. Checked at the connector under the column (unplugged).

What's the best way to test the slip ring to make sure it isn't that before I replace the actual switch?
