If the air bag light is on, the horn does not sound when the pad is depressed (but does souns when you activate the alarm) and the cruise control doesn't work (but the lamp lights up when you first turn the key on), your issue is probably with the clockspring. This is a device that keeps an electrical connection between the steering wheel and the rest of the car regardless of steering wheel position.

There's a recall on the clockspring on Chrysler and Plymouth so I believe Dodge should have the same recall . Just check with your local dealer .

Check your fuses first, then a vacuum leek second. To reset the air bag light unplug the battery for 30 seconds then reconnect. If the light comes back on take it to a garage as the air bag can be very dangerous.

Horn & Cruise control doesn't work


The clock spring has gone bad. You will have to remove the steering wheel to gain access to the clock spring (used to be called the turn sig. switch) But if you are going to perform this repair make sure you dis-connect the battery before you began because you could set off the air bag in the steering wheel

hi dave well there have been issues with computers on those vans but all of your problems can be traced to the steering wheel. there is a part called a clock spring in the steering wheel that allows things like the horn and airbag to have an electrical contact while still being able to spin in a circle! you also have the cruise control running through the steeing wheel. anything unusual happen with the steering wheel. did it get wet or anything spilled on it? did you get a check engine light? the air bag light will come on if the control module loses contact with the air bag in the steering wheel but the check engine light will not come on if contact is lost with the controls for the cruise control. the horn is not monitored. a scanner would help here. parts stores have them and will often run it for free hoping you will buy parts from them. look for the computer to show the cruise control being requested when you try to turn it on. if nothing shows in the computer then you probably have a bad clock spring. this is a dealer only part and not cheap. maybe an independant repair shop would get a used one from a slavage yard for you. good luck

I have a 2001 Dodge Neon and I'm having problems with air bag light on, horn doesn't work and cruise control that stop working all at the same time. Have any idea what is wrong with it?


my guess is that the steering column is not grounded, the horn works with a grounding circuit with thesteering shaft, so probably so is the air bag

You need a new clockspring. It is behind the steering wheel, at the top of the steering column. It has wires wound around it like a clock. You will need to disconnect the battery, remove the air bag, then the steering wheel, and the steering column trim. Unbolt it, and install in reverse order.
