There is a part called a "clock spring"under the steering wheel.
That has to be replaced.

I'll guess that your air bag light is on as well? Sounds Like you need a new clockspring in the steering wheel. This device replaced the old copper slip rings when air bags come out.

I lost all power to the steering wheel components,


Your issue is most likely the clock spring which is part of the air bag system.

All of the signals controlling these functions are routed through the clock spring.

Should cost around 200-300 to have it done, or more like 100-150 if you do it yourself. You must know what you are doing though as the airbag system is not to be taken lightly.

Cruise control and horn stopped working


You need a new clockspring. It is behind the steering wheel, at the top of the steering column. It has wires wound around it like a clock. You will need to disconnect the battery, remove the air bag, then the steering wheel, and the steering column trim. Unbolt it, and install in reverse order.

Horn, cruise control, and radio controls on steering wheel do not work ?


The clockspring behind the steering wheel is possibly defective or unplugged. It is the one and only component that all of your symptoms have in common.

Replace the Clock spring. It is mounted behind steering wheel. It alows electrical connection while the wheel turns.

Air bag light stays on


The Airbag, horn and cruise control share on common component. The clock spring inside the steering wheel. The clockspring is snapped into a plastic mounting platform on the steering column behind the steering wheel. The clockspring is used to maintain a continuous electrical circuit between the wiring harness and the driver's airbag module. This assembly consists of a flat ribbon like electrically conductive tape which winds and unwinds with the steering wheel rotation.
The clocksprings going bad is a common problem with Chrysler products. Since the Airbag is involved, I would recommend the dealer replace it. It is about a $175.00 to $200.00 repair. or you can try junk yards hope this help have a nice day.

Air bag


If the air bag light is blinking count the blinks for the code. Example.. If the air bag light flashes once and then a short pause and then two blinks you would have a code 12. and so on. If it just stays on you will need to take it into a repair shop and get it checked. My best guess without looking at it would be that the clockspring is not working properly. Most of the time when the clockspring goes out other things stop working like the horn or cruise control or something that is on the steering wheel. Hope this helps.
