Question about 1994 GMC Sierra
Replaced key switch then it started blowing while turning .then went apart again cant see anything obvious.
Clockspring was not the culprit. Four insulating plastic washers of particular shape for airbag brackets deteriorated - I should say crumbled. Consequently, airbag sagged and contacted the horn grounding point. It was a difficult problem to diagnose without prior experience. Since dealer doesn't sell the washers separately, I had to either fabricate them or purchase the entire steering assembly for $100. I took the first route. It took me a day.

The clockspring in the stering wheel could be defective.

you may need to drop the column back down to get the keys out.when you dropped the column you should have removed the keys first thing so that this dosent happen

Sounds like a short in the steering colume, maybe the turn signal switch, or a wire that the insulation got wore thru in the colume. Unhook break light switch and try the turn signals and hazards again and see what happens, maybe you can isolate it that way. Also if you havent done it already chk.the sockets in tailight housing for corrosion and bear wires, or anything, even ground wires.

If you look behind the steering wheel there should me 2-4 screws or bolts that hold the airbag in place. generally they are Torx but some times can be regular 6 point bolts.
