Why is airbag light on and my horn nor cruise control is not working now with my 2004 dodge intrepid

There are wires that run from under the dash, up the steering column to the steering wheel. They flex when the wheel turns. This wire harness is called a clock spring. When it breaks, everything connected to it in the steering wheel quits. They are about 180 USD

When breaking, my break pedal begins to pulsate when stopping. Also, the steering wheel begins to shake when breaking.

Usually a sign one of the front brake rotors is out of round. It could also be something wrong with the abs but I doubt it.

Loose steering wheel on f250 turbo deisel truck. what would cause this and could it be the bearing?

yeah, more than likely the bearings you should be able to feel the bearings grinding as you turn the wheel. you can buy all the parts and hope you get everything you need or go to a junkyard and buy the whole thing and replace it 5 times faster.

obviously the wires between the steering column are worn and broken .replacement or fix is needed this is notorious with tilt wheel .
as you already noticed tilting the wheel causes one issue and or result and another position causes yet another result ......most likely cause resides within the turn signal lever itself ...either remove the bottom cover to the column and find what wire is doing what or i would suggest a replacement part is far more worthy in the end and try to not use the tilt as much it is a notorious to occur on any vehicle .
consider either after market or salvage yard .

2002 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN Steering Noise

I had a similar problem with a popping - clanking noise when I was turning the Steering Wheel and going at a slow speed.
See if you can have someone listen outside the car while you drive it to be sure.
I replaced the one drive axle and the problem was solved.
