I changed this on mine its pretty simple. disconnect battery,remove plastic caps off back of steering wheel i think its 8mm bolts holding on your air bag remove and disconnect , pull your steering wheel and its right their you'll have to take off the plastic cover that goes around your ignition switch. the wires run down the column there is 2 plastic retaining clips that u can pop open with a flat screwdiver underneath by your brake pedal there is 2 plugs a brown one and black one . be careful when installing make sure u have it lined up and don't pull the yellow plastic ring out till all intact or when u turn it'll break again. it took me about 1hr 15min to replace

the clockspring in the steering column needs replacing I beleive there was a recall for that call the dodge dealer with your serial number to see if it was done on yours. you never know you may get it repaired for free.
sounds like a bad clockspring. located in steering column under steering wheel, operates airbag, horn cruise etc, it make wire connection possible so the wheel can spin, its a roll of flat wires, that unroll and roll up as steering wheel is truned from left to right,wires break after a while.
hello, it is common for chrysler to use no horn fuse! what they use in place is the "clockspring". the clockspring is located in steering columb under the wheel....does your cruise control work (if equipped)? if no cruise control function it is most likely a bad clockspring!..... good luck, marty
You will have to replace the entire clockspring. I highly recommend having it done at a repair shop because it involves removing the air bag which contains a small explosive device and can be dangerous to someone not trained in removing it.
The clockspring in the steering column is broken, It causes the airbag light to stay lit and the horn and cruise control to stop working. See below:
On 10/5/2004 a Motor Vehicle Recall, number 04V480000 was issued on this vehicle for this problem. From the recall bulletin: ON CERTAIN MINIVANS, THE DRIVER'S AIR BAG MAY BECOME DISABLED DUE TO A FAILURE OF THE CLOCKSPRING, WHICH IS LOCATED IN THE HUB OF THE STEERING WHEEL.
THIS CONDITION WILL MANIFEST ITSELF THROUGH ILLUMINATION OF THE AIR BAG WARNING LAMP, AND COULD EVENTUALLY RESULT IN A DRIVER'S AIR BAG OPEN CIRCUIT, IF THE PART IS NOT REPLACED IN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME.
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE CLOCKSPRING ASSEMBLY ON ALL COVERED VEHICLES WITH 70,000 MILES OR LESS. FOR THOSE VEHICLES WITH MORE THAN 70,000 MILES, DAIMLERCHRYSLER WILL OFFER AN EXTENDED LIFETIME WARRANTY UNDER WHICH IT WILL REPLACE THE CLOCKSPRING AT NO CHARGE IF IT FAILS. DAIMLERCHRYSLER WILL ALSO REIMBURSE OWNERS WHO HAVE PAID TO HAVE THE CLOCKSPRING REPLACED ON THEIR VEHICLES. THE RECALL BEGAN ON OCTOBER 12, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT DAIMLERCHRYSLER AT 1-800-853-1403.
does your cruise control work? the reason is that there is a what is called a clockspring harness in the sterring wheel under the airbag, if your airbag light is flashing chances are this harness is broke and will need to be replaced, The airbag, horn, and cruise control all go throught this clockspring harness.
is the air bag light on? is the cruise control working? if not you most likely have a bad clockspring. hope this helps. if this is not the case check power and ground at the horn. and check fuses and relays also.
