Check, third brake light, underhood fuses, multifunction switch on column, and wiring in the steering column.

MIne done this ended up the pressure sensor on the master cylinder was shorting out because it was leaking fluid out and it ate the coating off the wires. It blew one of the fuses in the engine compartment fuse box finallly and quit working all together also it made my backup lights quit working. I guess this is a problem for ford according to my ford dealer. They got an updated part out for it and it runs like $17 I put it on and it fixed the problems.

This sensor i believe is on recall due to it can cause a fire. (some years)
The update sensor is red IICR.

I thought the recall covered all vehicles without a diesel?

its a coil of "wire" in the steering wheel that allows the controls to still function while the wheel can still turn.

its basically a coil of wire, and as it starts to wear out, your controls will intermitintly work untill one day the contact is gone. thats when you loose all your steering wheel functions. does your horn still work?
