It's not really hard. However, it does require a few special tools like a steering wheel puller. The MOST LIKELY cause of your problem is that the contact assembly (also called "clockspring" or "spiral cable") in your steering column is broken. The supplemental restraint system must be deactivated to prevent accidental airbag deployment. Other than this, it is just a few screws and a couple of nuts and bolts.
If you would like to take a shot at this yourself, most of the large parts outlets like AutoZone and Advance have "loaner" tools that you can use to do the job. Check with your local parts supplier to see if they have a steering wheel puller available.
Then, if you would like COMPLETE instructions (including diagrams) on how to do the job, I can supply them for you.

This is caused by a part called the clock-spring rotating contact ribbon, it is a coiled up circuit ribbon that connects the steering wheel button and airbag to the steering column electrics. it is under the steering wheel. It needs to be replaced. This can be a dangerous job due the Airbag, so if you do want to try and replace it disconnect the battery negative cable for 15 minutes prior to start of work. The part is about $150.00 You will need special tools.
