I would guess that your steering wheel switches for cruise control and radio function do not work either. Sounds like a failed air bag sliding contact (clock spring) behind the steering wheel. Certainly, it's best to count the air bag flashes at start up (it will be a sequence of a two digit flash code before staying on solid) and check the code first, but your symptoms point to a classic sliding contact problem.
