Question about Dodge Ram 1500
I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4. Recently I lost my wipers, horn and head light control. All fuses and relays are good. The head lights come on with ignition and go off when ignition is off, but no brights or control otherwise. Turn signals work, but no wipers. Steering wheel stereo controls work, but no horn. I've been told it's the body control module, combo switch and/or the clock spring in the steering wheel. Which is it? Thanks, Dave
Much easier to replace the switch assembly. If it is something minor repair it but do not open the switch assembly packaging so that you can return it.

SOURCE: steering wheel controls
Replace the clock spring, or check all the cabling and plugs first. If you are inexperienced take it to an auto electrician, otherwise do it yourself but disconnect the negative battery terminal for 2 minutes prior to opening the steering wheel to check the plugs, as not doing so could cause the airbag to go off. In addition you can also take out the airbag fuse. Check radio control plugs and close it up again and reconnect everything in reverse order. If that doesn't fix it, then have the clock spring replaced professionally, its too much mucking around if you don't know what you're doing.

Usually the wire from the steering wheel is Green w/Red and the wire to the horn from the fuse box is White. There is only one fuse, sometimes shared with the emergency lights. Check to see if there is power to the horn itself with a volt meter.

If your car is under 36000 miles take it to your dealer and have it fixed under your warrenty. All of your interior electrical systems are controled by computors and sometime not a simple repair ! The dealer has the tools to monitor different switch states to aid in isolating the problem. Just guessing if its a switch or a computor or a wiring issue can get very costly.
