Clock spring or cruise control switch?

Awhile back my son was playing in the Jeep and pulled back on the cruise control switch. Ever since then the cruise control light will come on but I can't set the speed.

My question is did the cruise control switch get broke or is it the clock spring?

I've searched about a dozen different ways and haven't come up with a answer.

Is the airbag light on, on the dash? Does the horn still work? Those are telltale signs of clockspring broken. So if none of those then probably cruise control stick is broken.

My airbag light would come on when in a right hand turn. No cruise control. It was the clock spring.

I forgot to mention that I didn't have any of the other tell tale signs of a bad clockspring. I was thinking it was the cruise control stick but I just wanted a second opinion.

I would say cruise switch. I don't see how pushing or pulling on the cruise button would damage the actual clockspring. If you horn works and the airbag light is not on and chiming, my bet is it's the cruise switch. You still have to pull the wheel to get to it though
