I had the same symptom on my 97' grand voyager. replaced the clock spring and my air bag light turned off, the horn worked and the cruse worked. found one at local auto parts for about 50 bucks.

I lost all power to the steering wheel components,

Your issue is most likely the clock spring which is part of the air bag system.

All of the signals controlling these functions are routed through the clock spring.

Should cost around 200-300 to have it done, or more like 100-150 if you do it yourself. You must know what you are doing though as the airbag system is not to be taken lightly.

The horn and cruise control doesn't work,fuses are

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.

A scratching noise can be heard at the steering wheel when turing either direction. A broken spring? Is this a critical "fix-it-now" problem? Or can I continue to drive until I get time to fix it?

It' probably the spring-loaded contacts that are there for the horn, and/or cruise...the controls on the steering wheel. You can try to spray a bit of lube in the crack between the steering wheel and the column...
not super critical...just annoying..

Horn stopped working about two weeks ago. I'm up

mine did this and i noticed sometimes would work then not more i payed attention horn only worked in straight a head position (steering wheel) when i turned it quit does your do this?
If so remove the cavers that are behind the steering wheel and the trim for guages and radio (this one first steering covers next or youll break'em - i did) carefuly remove turn signal switch and very very carefully dissamble there is a littl brush that has a spring behind it (brush is round) it touches a rind on the steering column that allows the horn to sound. I streched the spring a little ot push the brush out farther ofr better contact.

Air bag light on

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.

Horn not working

Most likely it is the clockspring. The wheel and air bag have to be pulled off to replace. The wiring breaks within the clockspring causing the horn not to work and the cruise control on the steering wheel not to work. You can replace this your-self for about $100 as someone posted above but why. Check the recalls on your paticular veh. I replaced mine my self the first time and it went out about 6 years later. I found out that my vehicle was on the recall list for this part. The second time around I let the dealership pay for the part and labor.

Call the dealer to see if this is covered for free under recall! Most are! Hope this helps anyone who reads this!
