Wipers, cruise control not working

2007 HR Imperial Class A

Wipers and cruise control both quit today. Started raining and worked for a while but then quit altogether. Any ideas?

Both are fused. I'd look for blown fuses first.

When I checked the fuses I noticed the fuse compartment has a couple of small holes which is allowing water to spray up into the compartment from the front wheel, hence everything in the compartment is wet. I have placed a small heater in the compartment to dry things out and will patch the holes (looks like 2 screw holes where something had been attached and then removed so can simply put a couple metal screws back in to fill the holes). Hopefully this gets at least my wipers working. Any other advice anyone has is welcome and appreciated.

With the water in the fuse compartment I would suspect corrosion on some terminals. Try a hair dryer to get it as dry as possible as quick as possible. The fuse could still be good but the connectors aren't. Just my first thoughts.

Do you by chance have a smart wheel that you use for the cruise control and wipers??? If so it could be your clock spring.

cruise control fuse.

On my Ford chassis, the cruise control also quits if you blow a fuse on the brake lite circuit. In two fuse boxes, there are three fuses that are marked for the brake lite circuit. It took forever to figure this out. Finally mentioned to the mechanic I use and he said, yes, the circuits are interconnected due to cruise cutting off when brakes are applied.

I have a Smart wheel with all the controls on it. I had the same thing happen and to add to it the wipers would sometimes come on by themselves. I did some reading and seen a couple posts somewhere here on the forum and they said to check all the plugs in the wiring in the steering column and the Smart wheel controller. The controller was located under the dash.
I checked all the plugs and unplugged and re plugged the controller and it all works fine again.
Sometimes the controller needs to be replaced.

Problem Fixed

Thanks to all who replied. Finally got to bottom of problem and it turns out one of the circuit boards was fried. Installed a new one, siliconed compartment to keep water out and all good now. 😊😊😊
