You will need to disarm the airbag system (follow manufacturers instructions EXACTLY), remove the steering wheel and replace the coiled ribbon contact drum under the steering while that is commonly called the "clock spring". FAILURE TO DISARM THE AIRBAG CAN RESAULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR *****.

How to remove an SIR coil on 97 Deville/Technical drawing of steering column?


The clock spring assembly was most likely damaged during removal/assembly of the repairs. This assembly controls the airbag/horn/steering wheel functions. It is not that hard to change if you have a steering wheel puller to get the steering wheel off. Here is an exploded diagram. Hope it helps. The very top of the diagram is the clock spring assembly and it will be the first thing you see when the steering wheel is removed

Unable to repair code C1278


This is a steering wheel angle 1 and 2 fault. You could have an alignment problem, throwing your steering wheel off center causing this code. Take it to a shop and see if I am right, Check the steering wheel to see if it stops in the center when you drive in a straight line and stop. if not the alignment is off. I hope this has been helpful.

I have a 2004 Alero. Every time I put another horn on, it gets stuck and won't stop blowing until I beat the pad on the steering wheel, by then the horn and fuse is blown out. How do I fix this problem?


Either by replacing the actual horn switch assembly or the wire that runs down the steering column. Sounds like the switch is bad but somtimes the wires short to groung causing the horn to work. Depending on how hard you beating the steering wheel could tempory fix either problem.

Indicators not self cancelling & Horn not working


I had the same problem. Horn not working and indicators not self cancelling.
After removing the steering wheel I found that the central two pronged collet, that engages with the steering wheel and drives the horn contact slipring and indicator cancellation, had worn down its prongs. this had caused the horn wires to stop rotating and they had been snapped by the motion of the steering wheel.
the ideal solution would be to replace the collet and horn wires but I managed to repair both

1992 Buick Lasabre Right Brake Light


Just a thought, but I figure with an electrical nightmare, you need as many posibilities as you can get. There is a switch behind your brake pedal. when you step on the brake, it contacts a button on the switch, which allows power to get to your brake lights. Maybe one of the wires coming from the switch is catching the steering column mechanisms. I hate electrical stuff. So, I wish you the best of luck. I sincerely hope that I could be of some help.
