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.

SOURCE: Horn, cruise control, and radio controls on steering wheel do not work ?

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.

SOURCE: the horn and cruise control doesn't work,fuses are

the horn input to ground is located in the cruise control module. if they both don't work then your cruise control module or the clockspring coil for the steering wheel needs to be replaced. If airbag lights is on as well then I would change the clockspring coil first.

2002 impala horn goes off by itself


Highly suspicious the problem is in your horn button.
And that might be on your steering wheel.
And that is where your Air Bag is. And that might mean you have air bag/horn button problems !!!!
Check with some good junk yards or body shops and see if you can find out how to change the horn button/air bag.
I just learned how 2 weeks ago, and it was really easy.
In my town, good used airbag/horn buttons go for $ 25.
Be blessed.

double check with a Ford dealership,but it really sounds like a broken CLOCKSPRING just behind the steering wheel...it controls the air bag-horn-and cruise control...i had to replace one in my 1994 Bronco 2 years ago which the part was $120.00 at Ford.

Chevy silverado 2006 lights "service air bag"


First of all you need to get this problem fixed ASAP. While the airbag light is illuminated, your SDM (Sensing and Diagnostic Module aka: the brain of your airbag system) shuts of power to the airbags. In which, if you are in an accident your airbags will not deploy while this light is illuminated. You need to take your vehicle to a GM dealership. A Tech 2 scantool is needed to retrieve the code from the SDM. Hopefully it won't be a costly repair, but is something that defineatly needs to be corrected soon. Good luck and hope all works well.

I have a 2001 Stratus. Airbag light stays on


That happened to me when the clock spring in the steering wheel broke. But the clock spring controls the air bags, horn and cruise control. Check if your horn and cruise control works. If not, I bet it's the clock spring from turning your wheel. It was about $150 to replace. Good luck!
