Small controls problems

The cruise control and infotainment controls sometimes work and sometimes do not.

Is this a common problem?

I've had some trouble with the track selection buttons on the steering wheel not responding. I don't use cruise very often but the controls always work when I need them to.

Mine have done some really odd stuff, like the paddle for voice commands working the up volume instead, and sometimes the cruise just doesn't work.

It's in the shop now, while they take a look at the transmission and these problems.

To bad the paddles did screw up and act like shifters :) That would be one screw up I would like to keep.

A now departed Fit had the shift paddles and they were a thing well worth having.

someone I know had this exact problem with his cruise control, the problem can come from the clock spring, which is a long cable rolled arround ur steering wheel so u can turn it but still have electrical connection on it, you should have it checked and its might solve ur problem

Crystal, it is all driving me nuts. The loaner Focus drives just fine, without the jerking/fumbling/stumbling of my car. We'll see if the dealer et al are able to achieve any progress.
