Hello, Just wanted everyone to know that if you have one of these vans and the air bag light is on and the horn and cruise dont work the clock spring in the sterring colum is the problem. Here is some good news for you because of the air bag this is a safety issue and it was recalled. The dealer has to fix this free of charge. Call your local chrysler dealer and have your Vin number ready and they should be able to fix it for you free of charge.

There is a electrical connection behind the steering wheel called a click spring. It is a series of wires wrapped up like that of a clock spring that cirlce around as you steer. This part is fairly easy to replace as the steering wheel deassembles very easily. The cost of the part is around 143.00 and is only avaliable at the dealership or maybe you can locate one at the salvage. My 2000 Voyager has the same issue as we speak.

The problem is most likely the clockspring under the steering wheel. Check with a dealer. This problem is covered by a recall. Since Plymouth is no more I'm not sure who is doing their warranty work. Check here: http://www.chrysler.com/universal/webselfservice/pdf/D17.pdf

Horn dont work from colum but a jump to horn works


The most common reason for an inop horn on these vans is a bad clockspring under the steering wheel. If the air bag light is also on your van may be eligible for a recall regardless of age or mileage. You would have to check with a dealer.

There was a recall due to the clockspring being wound incorrectly. If the repair was not made, this could cause the horn and cruise control to quit functioning and the air bag light to stay on.

The cruise control is not working on our 1997 plymouth voyager, however the horn works and the air bag light turns off properly so I'm not sure if it would have the spring problem some of the other...


could be the plasic pipe has broken that supplies vacuum to the servo momted at top rear of engine on left[drivers]side. or a fuse has popped check ALL of them because some fuses feed other fuses and are not labeled as such on the fuse panels

1997 Plymonth Voyager horn does not work.


My van had the same problem. You need to replace the clockspring located in the steering wheel. Once replaced, the horn will work, the cruise will work, and the air bag light will shut off. Hope this helps!!! It worked for me!!

Air bag light came on, cruise control and horn stopped working


Your clockspring broke in the steering column. Same thing happened to me. If you have less than 70K mileage on the van, you can get it reparied for free. It's a known defect. Check with your dealer if they will honor the recall.
