Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring
My air bag light came on bought 2 weeks ago ive seen many people have this problem however soon as it came on my horn and cruise control stopped working. the cruise i dont use anyhow but horn i do :( i seen somewhere it may be a sensor in steering wheel?? how can i fix it?
The clock spring is broken. it winds and unwinds as you turn the steering wheel and is the conductor of electricity to the components that fail when it breaks. This is a recall item on many Chrysler models.

You have a sliding contact behind the steering wheel (called a clock spring). It is probably bad & needs replacing. Need to remove steering wheel for access. Usually there is a code set that says whether it's the driver side air badg or passenger side air bag that's the issue.
Somtimes, you can check it yourself by reading the number of flashes once you enter self test. Read owner manual or call dealer service dept and ask for self test procedure.
For a Ford, you turn key to "on" and then press the door dome lamp switch 7 times in 10 seconds and then read the codes. Not sure about Chrysler.

it is the clockspring it is nothing to worry about i would get some cat 5 wire coil it up and wire it in there because the clockspring is very expensive part in have replace them using cat 5 wire and never had any problem after

replace the clock-spring ribbon contact under the steering wheel, that is the problem, u have lost the connection due to a broken ribbon contact.

your horn relay is located under the hood in the black box that also houses the fuses and relays for your whole car .. under the lid for this black box is the location for all the relays and fuses check it out and see if it has your horn relay in there thanks and holler if you need more. Jerry

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.
