Question about Chrysler Sebring
Disconnect the battery and check the wires that connect the horns. If corroded, clean them up with crocos cloth. Connect the battery back up and try again. If they don;t work, disconnect one horn at the terminals and set the multimeter to VDC on the lowest setting and have someone press the horn. If the needle deflects, they your horn driver is (speaker) blown and you'll need to find replacements. There are usually two horns; one high octave and one low. Some cars have a fuse for the horns. Even if it looks good, replace it as it sometimes hard to tell.

FIrst off the horn's ground works through the steering wheel,so the wire is bare or the end is broken and grounding in a place where it should not. You will have to check the wires for the horn from the fuse box up to the wheel.
your power feed to the headlights and the door locks has an open ( the power is not connected somewhere ) Perform a wiggle test turn on the headlights and lift the hood,find the power distribution box and begin to wiggle the wire harness.Sometimes the chrysler fuse box under the hood get loose inside the power distribution box,it will have to be broken down all the way to the heavy wires comming out of hte box,you can tighten these connections your self.

check the fuses but there should also be a relay for these "toys" located either in the fuse box under the dash or in the fuse box in the engine compartment often located near the battery.

Testimonial: "that was fast!"
SOURCE: on my wife's sebring lxi
Probably you can add the airbag to the pack of non-working things. This parts fail all at once when the steering wheel clockspring is broken. That is a common problem , here a testimonial.
The role of the clockspring is ensuring electrical connection to devices linked to steering wheel commands and controls while you turn the steering wheel.
Before replacing the clock spring, check the fuses and the connection to fuse box, a bad grounding in there can also cause the problem, even if this is far less common.
The clock spring replacement is not expensive, but it is quite complicate for an unexperienced user, I suggest having it done by a mechanic. Charge is about two hours work plus part.
1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative remote cable. Wait two minutes for the capacitor to discharge.
2. Remove the steering wheel.
3. Carefully feed all wires through the steering wheel armature to avoid damaging wires. When replacing a deployed Driver Airbag, a new clock spring must be installed.
4. Remove multi-function switch. Refer to Electrical, Lamps/Lighting - Exterior, Multi-Function Switch, Removal.
5. Remove the clock spring by lifting the top lock housing latches up slightly to guide it over the lock housing. The clock spring cannot be serviced and must be replaced if defective, damaged, or the vehicle has sustained an impact where the front airbags were deployed.
If reinstalling a clock spring, make sure the clock spring is centered by performing the clock spring centering procedure. Refer to Electrical, Restraints, Clock Spring, Standard Procedure - Clock Spring Centering.
1. Align the top locking tab with the slot on the lock housing. Gently push into place.
2. Install the multi-function switch and tighten to 1.5 to 2.5 Nm (14 to 22 in. lbs.) torque. Refer to Electrical, Lamps/Lighting - Exterior, Multi-Function Switch, Installation.
3. Carefully route the wires through the hole in the steering wheel armature and install the steering wheel.
4. Route the speed control wires through guides located inside the steering wheel back cover. Connect the speed control wires to switches and install switches.
5. Connect horn lead to the airbag mounting bracket.
6. Connect the two yellow airbag leads (black and grey connectors) to the Driver Airbag and push secondary latch into place. Ensure the wires do not get pinched during installation.
* THIS SYSTEM IS A SENSITIVE, COMPLEX UNIT. DISCONNECT AND ISOLATE THE BATTERY NEGATIVE CABLE BEFORE BEGINNING AIRBAG SYSTEM COMPONENT REMOVAL OR INSTALLATION PROCEDURES. THIS WILL DISABLE THE AIRBAG SYSTEM. FAILURE TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.
* ALLOW SYSTEM CAPACITOR TO DISCHARGE FOR TWO MINUTES BEFORE REMOVING AIRBAG COMPONENTS.
* DO NOT PLACE AN INTACT UNDEPLOYED AIRBAG FACE DOWN ON A SOLID SURFACE, THE AIRBAG WILL PROPEL INTO THE AIR IF ACCIDENTALLY DEPLOYED AND COULD RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY. WHEN CARRYING OR HANDLING AN UNDEPLOYED AIRBAG, THE TRIM SIDE OF THE AIRBAG SHOULD BE POINTING TOWARDS THE BODY TO MINIMIZE POSSIBILITY OF INJURY IF ACCIDENTAL DEPLOYMENT OCCURS.
* REPLACE AIRBAG SYSTEM COMPONENTS WITH MOPAR. REPLACEMENT PARTS. SUBSTITUTE PARTS MAY APPEAR INTERCHANGEABLE, BUT INTERNAL DIFFERENCES MAY RESULT IN INFERIOR OCCUPANT PROTECTION.
* WEAR SAFETY GLASSES, RUBBER GLOVES, AND LONG SLEEVED CLOTHING WHEN CLEANING POWDER RESIDUE FROM VEHICLE AFTER AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT. POWDER RESIDUE EMITTED FROM A DEPLOYED AIRBAG CAN CAUSE SKIN IRRITATION. FLUSH AFFECTED AREA WITH COOL WATER IF IRRITATION IS EXPERIENCED. IF NASAL OR THROAT IRRITATION IS EXPERIENCED, EXIT THE VEHICLE FOR FRESH AIR UNTIL THE IRRITATION CEASES. IF IRRITATION CONTINUES, SEE A PHYSICIAN.
* DO NOT USE A REPLACEMENT AIRBAG THAT IS NOT IN THE ORIGINAL PACKAGING. IMPROPER DEPLOYMENT AND PERSONAL INJURY CAN RESULT.
* THE FACTORY INSTALLED FASTENERS, SCREWS AND BOLTS USED TO FASTEN AIRBAG COMPONENTS ARE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR THE AIRBAG SYSTEM. DO NOT USE SUBSTITUTE FASTENERS, USE ONLY ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT FASTENERS LISTED IN THE PARTS CATALOG WHEN FASTENER REPLACEMENT IS REQUIRED.
* AIRBAGS SHOULD BE STORED IN A COOL DRY LOCATION AWAY FROM AIRBAG FACING UP, A PREMATURE DEPLOYMENT CAN RESULT.
* THE DRIVER AIRBAG TRIM COVER AND HORN SWITCH ASSEMBLY ARE THE ONLY SERVICEABLE PARTS OF THE DRIVER AIRBAG. DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OTHER PARTS WITHIN AS THEY ARE NOT SERVICEABLE.
* NEVER DISASSEMBLE THE PASSENGER AIRBAG, THERE ARE NO SERVICEABLE PARTS WITHIN.
* WHEN THE FRONT AIRBAG IS DEPLOYED, THE TENSIONER WILL HAVE DEPLOYED ALSO AND MUST BE REPLACED.
