Question about 1998 Chevrolet Prizm
A while back my airbag light came on. Shortly after that my horn stopped working. I read somewhere that it could be the clock spring. However, when I look through the book I can't find a clock spring and neither can the parts guy at the chevy dealer. If anyone has had this problem fixed please let me know. Thanks in advance.
Some Chrysler products have this "clockspring issue" (my Plymouth Voyager did) and it can cause those symptoms. I did an online search for recalls on the 1998 Prizm and came up with nothing mentioning a clockspring, so that is probably not be related to your car. I can think of a couple of possibilities: 1) You have two separate problems - you had an air bag issue, and now your horn died (you could try replacing your horn to see if that problem goes away).
2) You have a problem that is on a circuit that is connected to the same circuit card in the car's computer that controls the air bag and the horn, and because they're all on the same "circuit" your seeing problems in these other systems.
I would suggest doing electrical checks (fuses, wiring, connections, etc. - be careful around the airbag and it's circuitry (you might want a technician to do this).
