SOURCE: Remove me Steering wheel bmw 1999 e46 3 series

Disconnect negative battery cable. Locate airbag retentions on back of steering wheel. Unbolt or unclip retention devices, and release airbag. Then: Unplug airbag electrical connector. Remove nut or bolt in center of steering wheel with pneumatic impact wrench if necessary . Using appropriate steering wheel removal tool kit, carefully remove steering wheel, paying attention to associated wires, etc. Unplug anything not accompanying wheel, or that is in the way. Pay close attention to any rods, or contact pieces associated with the horn button(s.) Replace these upon reinstall. Reverse order to install including tightening center bolt to 35-55 ft-lbs. If this is your first stg wheel removal, try an old chevy, preferrably someone else's! If inexperienced, don't risk bruising your favorite Bimmer!!! Hope this helps you make your decision.

SOURCE: air bag light blinking

get this checked out asap. This indicates the air bag system has a problem, and may not deploy in the event of an accident. Did you just purchase the car w/ this problem, or have u had it a while? I ask, because if u purchased it w/ the blinking light, it could indicate the car was in an accident, the air bag deployed, and it wasn't replaced when repairs were made. That's the worse case scenario, get it checked, hopefully it's something not that serious. Let me know how u make out Curt

SOURCE: Air bag light is on... The str wheel controls r never correct

You have a bad clock spring. This is located behind the steering wheel and all electrical functions from steering wheel must go thru it. Pretty common problem on this model. The steering wheel and the steering column trim would have to be removed to replace it.

My horn won't work on my 2007 Uplander. Checked fuses, and wiring and everything is fine. What could it be?


This is caused by a loss of connection in the coiled ribbon contact under the steering wheel called the Clock Spring contact. Before you remove the steering wheel to replace this contact drum you MUST DISARM the Airbag system. Failure to disarm the system can result in serious injury or in rare cases *****.

I have a 2005 Nissan Altima and my horn don't work


you may have a problem with the clock spring or spiral cable as nissan calles it. it is a part of the air bag system and also horn signal runs into and out of it.if that part is bad, your air bag light will flash and your horn will not work. has anyone been doing any repairs inside of the steering wheel?? it may just be unpluged. if you are going to tackle this your self to look inside of the steering wheel, make sure you disconnect the battery for at least 3 minutes, befor you start playing with the air bag. you dont want to blow it up.

Installed new rack ,have air bag light on


The steering wheel needs to be prevented from rotating when it is disconnected from the steering linkage. The airbag system uses a rotational sensor that is just below the steering wheel mounted airbag. (Often called a clock-spring)
I suspect is was damaged during your repair.
The airbag fault codes need to be read to confirm.
Good luck.

How to change ignition switch


REMOVE THE STEERING COLUMN HOUSING. LOOK AT A CONNECTOR ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE HOUSING YOU JUST REMOVED. THERE WILL BE RED OR RED/BLACK WIRE AND ALSO PINK, YELLOW, BROWN WIRES ALSO COMING OFF THE IGNITION CYLINDER . THIS WOULD BE THE RIGHT CONNECTOR TO REPLACE. YOU MAY SEE 2-3 ADDITIONAL COLORED WIRES ALSO.
DONT TOUCH ANY CONNECTORS THAT ARE YELLOW OR WRAPPED IN YELLOW TAPE. THESE ARE AIR BAG WIRES.

I have just changed the indicator/wiper arm (this unit is all in one comm 2000)and steering wheel,i have put the original air bag unit back on,and now the horn does not work and the air bag light is on and...


you have to be careful with the airbag connectors, they may look fitted but sometimes they dont go fully in - so check. on the steering wheel there is a black earth wire connected to a male connector, you need to cut the end off the wire and put a round earth terminal on it, then drill a small hole in the metal part of the steering wheel and fit a self tapping screw through the electrical connector you fitted and screw it into the hole you drilled. that is the usual cause for the horn not working e.g. bad earth connector on steering wheel. if you are not sure ask someone that knows about electrics

Crue control stoped working 2005 Dodge caravan


Hello! I would say it is most likely the clock spring inside the steering wheel behind the air bag. This is what provides power to the wheel and air bag itself. This could also cause your horn not to work and possibly illuminate the air bag light as well. Very common problem. Let me know if this helps or if you have any more questions
