Sounds like the steering wheel got turned during the proceedure to replace the shaft which means that you broke the clock spring which sits under the steering wheel.

Horn doesnt work after re-pack of airbag


The horn, cruse control and air bag each get power from the clock spring and each have a wire plugged no to it. The horn wire is probably not connected. When the clock spring breaks the horn and cruse control stop working and the air bag light stays on.

Cruise controll


I guess the cruse is'nt working? You first need to look it over to see if everythings hooked up. Did it work for you before or you haven't seen it work? The switch on the dash will light after turning it on but the car has to be running for it to turn on . Does the light light? if not check the fuses and see if thier any blown? To check to see that everything is hooked up find the throttle body, one cablr goes to the gas pedal and the other goes to the cruse, follow this cable to the cruse unit and see if that unit has all it's wires and hoses connected. To check you remove them and reconnect them looking into the plug or hose for dirt rust bent pins. The hoses can crack on the inside and leak which will make it not engage. Follow these hoses to where thier connected to the engine and the brake pedal as they can split and be disconnected there too. The brake pedal switch has to work too as does the clutch switch ( if it has a clutch) If the brake lights don't work niether will the cruse. The hi mount brake light if the bulbs fail the cruse won't work. The switch on the steering wheel can get disconnected too as it's on a clockspring circuit as the steering wheel has to turn. Is the airbag light on? if it is and the horn does'nt work either it's likly that the clockspring is broken, If the horn works and the airbag light cycles like it's suposed to then the clockspring is likly OK. The speedometer has to work too as the speed senser that works it also works the cruse.If everything is working your problem could be more seriuos but it's not likly as this unit is quite reliable.

When the airbag light started flashing and decided to stay on the cruise control stopped working. you can also hear a rattle in the steering wheel. please help


Its the clock spring under the the centre of the steering wheel. You may find that the horn is not working as well as the cruse control, the clockspring connects the air bag sensor to the airbag in the centre of your steering wheel, it keep the connection in contact as the steering wheel turns.
You could replace it yourself if you take the steering wheel off but remember to disconnect the battery first as fiddling with airbags could cause them to go off!!!!

Airbag light flashing


As long as the light is on the airbag system is disabled.

I would suspect that your clockspring behind the steering wheel is going bad. I would have someone with a scan tool that is able to retrieve trouble codes from the airbag system check it for codes to verify this. If so then steering wheel and steering column trim would have to be removed to access the clockspring to replace it.

1997 Dodge Caravan Horn and Airbag light


It's the " clock spring " . Dodge has a lifetime recall / replacement on this part. Somehow it controls the air bag and is tied into the horn and cruise control .

Air bag light stays on


The Airbag, horn and cruise control share on common component. The clock spring inside the steering wheel. The clockspring is snapped into a plastic mounting platform on the steering column behind the steering wheel. The clockspring is used to maintain a continuous electrical circuit between the wiring harness and the driver's airbag module. This assembly consists of a flat ribbon like electrically conductive tape which winds and unwinds with the steering wheel rotation.
The clocksprings going bad is a common problem with Chrysler products. Since the Airbag is involved, I would recommend the dealer replace it. It is about a $175.00 to $200.00 repair. or you can try junk yards hope this help have a nice day.
