You need to install a new colckspring. Go to dealer parts department and ask them to show you the diagram. You have to pull the steering wheel. Be sute to disconnect the battery because you could deploy your airbag. Good Luck!

The problem is a malfunction in the clockspring behind the airbag module in the steering
column. The last clockspring that I bought cost somewhere around $ 100 from Chrysler.

Air bag light on in dash cruise control quit working and horn also quit working all three things at the same time


These problems are all due to a defective rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel thios part connects the airbag and horn and cruise to the wiring harness. This part is called the clock-spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airbag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1/2 hour prior.

On the steer wheel, the cruise and horn does not work. fuse, or wiring issue?


When I owned my 1999 Grand Caravan the "clock spring" went out and I lost my cruise control ( don't remember if the horn quit too). There was a recall on it and the dealer changed if for free and it cleared up the problem. The clock sping is in the steering coulmn under the steering wheel and it's what keeps connections for steering wheel controls.

Horn and cruise don't work


The horn and cruise is activated through a clock spring switch assembly located under the steering wheel. Diagnosis is done by removing the steering wheel . It also controls the airbag electrical so use caution..

1999 Dodge Grand Caravan horn and Cruise control


I recently had the same issue, but my airbag warning lights also turned on. If this is the case, it might be the clockspring. There is a recall on clocksprings for Caravans 1998 - 2000 I believe. I got it replaced for free in the dealership. Enter your VIN in this site and it will tell you if you are covered in the free replacement warranty.

Horn on my 1999 Ford Taurus


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.

I guess the cruise control buttons are located on the steering wheel...

You have a bad clockspring (contact reel in the steering wheel), all the mentioned items (wheel mounted cruise buttons, horn buttons, airbag) are run through it.

Where the wheel is able to turn a couple of turns on either side, normal wires could not be setup to withstand this. The clockspring (contact reel) is a flat wire wound up to be able to withstand the rotation.

They are not an item I would recommend replacing by yourself, where airbag systems have a procedure which must be followed to make sure you don't accidentally deploy the bag and cause serious injury.
