Spiral Cable

Last night the cruise control in my 2006 Tacoma TRD quit working. A little research indicates that more than likely it is the "Spiral Cable"/"Clock Spring" unit. One site said that if the light doesn't come on when the steering wheel is centered, but comes on when turned full left or right, then the unit is bad. Mine does that.
Mine was already fixed under the factory recall around 2013/2014, and a phone call to Toyota says that now the repair is out of my own pocket.
So far, I've found two different part numbers for the spiral cable unit. Toyota #84306-04080 and #84306-48030.
Does anyone know which is the proper one? Or will they both work?

Which part number supersedes the other? Or look for the part number that supersedes them both. One tip, unhook the battery for like a minute or two before removing the air bag. I am very scared of the price difference between eBay and Toyota. Your call on picking which air bag blows up in your face.

Well, one site that gave step by step instructions on how to do a R&R gave parts numbers of 84306-04080 for steering wheels without control buttons, and 84306-0E010 for steering wheels with buttons. Since I have a steering wheel without buttons, I'm searching for 84306-04080. But, 84306-48030 also comes up during searches. My feeling is that 48030 is a later number, possibly used in later vehicles. But I have nothing to back that up.

Based on the Toyota parts website, my assumption is that 84306-0E010 is the latest part number. Input your VIN into that website to confirm or call the parts department of a dealer and see what they say.

Well, after doing a bit more digging, and going to Toyota's site with the VIN(no help), the best I can figure out from looking at pics, is that 43080 and 0E010 are equivalent. They have an extra female plug receptical that 04080 doesn't have.

That little thing could perhaps helped stopped this issue from occurring. Hard to say. Just gotta pick it, do it, and pray it's the right part.

As I think youíve figured out already, there are separate cables for the trucks with steering controls and those without. Only one of those was recalled. According to one of our previous Toyota vendorís parts website, it says 84306-0E010 replaces 84306-48030. Iíd still call a dealership and ask, but Iíd hazard a guess that 48030 was the original recalled part number and the odd numbered part 0E010 is the recall replacement. That would make sense since the 48030 and 48080 are similar numbers. Again, call a dealership parts dept and verify it with your VIN.

As far as I remember the Toyota parts installed at a dealer are guarantied for life.


A phone call to Toyota may greatly help!


Good luck,

To further muddy the issue, I found my paperwork from 2014 when my spiral cable was replaced (2005 Tacoma, no steering wheel buttons).

The p/n is 04002-04104. ToyotaPartsDeal.com cannot verify that it is correct for a 2006 Tacoma.

Also checking ToyotaPartsDeal.com, p/n 84306-48030 is incorrect for a 2006 Tacoma. p/n 84306-04080 shows as being correct. p/n 84306-0E010 needs more info to determine if correct.


So yes, I would definitely agree you should contact a dealer to make sure.

Search the parts site, add the VIN, find the part yourself AND/OR call the dealership, give the VIN, let them search the part.

04002-04104: Not much info on this but is still being sold
84306-48030 -> 84306-0E010: Part superseded, fits multiple models <- One of these
84306-04080: Without steering wheel controls, fits multiple models <- One of these

Put your VIN into this site and search for spiral cable. It's been helpful to me on my T100 more than once.

OP here. I got the spiral cable/clock spring replaced yesterday morning. It took about 40 minutes. I could have done it faster, but I chose to take my time since I was dealing with the air bag.
I used an after market unit, an SKP SK525401, purchased from Rock Auto. Comparing it to the Toyota 04080 that came out of my truck, and I find they are literally identical. Except that the Toyota part has a bar code sticker and a part number sticker. Other than that, all the moldings in the plastic are the same.
Differences between the 04080 and the 48030/0E010 are two. There is an extra rectangular female plug on the face/front of the 48030/0E010, between the air bag connectors and the horn connector. Underneath, the 04080 has a small square female plug in, with 3 pins. The 48030/0E010 has a rectangular female plug with 12 pins. Which I feel I can safely assume are for the steering wheel radio control buttons on some truck, which mine does not have. Mine did have a wire set with a thin, grey plug hanging free. I have no clue what they are for, except for the unused radio control button wires.

The issue seems to have been fixed. After doing some research on the internet, one of which stated that if the cruise control works when the wheel is turned limits to limits, then the spiral cable was going bad. Which is what mine did. It would also work eractically. However, just to make sure that it was the spiral cable, and not the cruise control stalk/switch itself, I replaced the cruise control stalk first. I drove the car for two days, and the cruise control did not work.
So, I installed the spiral cable. The only significant difference between the old unit and the new one, is that on the old one two two rotating halves are noticeable looser. They can almost be rocked back and forth.
