The clock spring is a device inside the steering column under the steering wheel that keeps your horn , cruise control , radio buttons etc... connected electrically . How cars clock spring works

Replaced intermediate steering shaft, 2007 Chevy HHR. steering wheel mow crackling, clicking when I turn it, airbag light on. steering wheel computer controls not responding. Someone said coil spring?

That would be clock spring. When the itermediate shaft was disconnected the wheel was apparently allowed to turn, and when the steering was re-connected the clock spring was too far turned one direction. You will have to have the wheels turned straight ahead when you install the new one or this will happen again. The new one will come with installation instructions, be sure to follow them.

2005 Buick Lesabre. left side radio buttons backlight, steering wheel buttons backlight, and temp panel button backlighting are all out, but good on the right hand side and two other right side buttons on...

These are actually the bulbs that have went bad. It would be quite expensive. I have a 2004 that has done the same thing. No lights behind any buttons any more except the ac heater controls I replaced last year.

When driving at night, not all the lights on the steering wheel, cruise control, and radio illuminate. Fuses? How do I know which one?

These steering wheel lights are usually sealed units, much like radio backlights. They can be repaired, but they have to be sent out for service, which means removal of the steering wheel, etc.
Speak to your dealer about the cost of such a service, your options, and their recommendations.
