You have a clock spring problem!!! No problem to replace just remove steering wheel but you may want to make sure the steering column is grounded first

At first guess I'd say you have a bad "clock spring", it's inside the steering column and it feeds the electrical signals up to the controls in the steering wheel.
Your air bags won't work, your horn, or your cruise control. Anything that's in the steering wheel.
It will have to be replaced.
You can check with Dodge but I think there was a recall on them but I also think there is a time and mileage contraint.

Hi, I have a 2000 dodge caravan. The horn, rear wiper,rear washer, rear defroster,cruise control and controls for heat settings, all not working. The air bad light is also on. Could it be a main fuse and...


The horn, cruise, and air bag light is probably the clock spring inside the steering colum. The rest of your problems could be a fuse but not sure on that. However The other problem because of the air bag is a safety issue and was Recalled. Call your local Chrysler dodge dealer with your Vin number and they should set up an appointment for you to get it fixed for free. (part of the recall) Good luck

Cruise control stopped working horn doesn't work Air bag light is on


If the air bag light is on, the horn does not sound when the pad is depressed (but does souns when you activate the alarm) and the cruise control doesn't work (but the lamp lights up when you first turn the key on), your issue is probably with the clockspring. This is a device that keeps an electrical connection between the steering wheel and the rest of the car regardless of steering wheel position.

Fuse location for cruise control on a 2000 dodge caravan


The cruise has no dedicated fuse, you will most likely be looking to replace the clockspring rotating contact located under the steering wheel which connects the switches in the steering wheel (horn, cruise and air-bag) to the rest of the electrical system.

1997 Dodge Caravan Horn and Airbag light


It's the " clock spring " . Dodge has a lifetime recall / replacement on this part. Somehow it controls the air bag and is tied into the horn and cruise control .
