I RECENTLY HAD A STEERING WHEEL IN MY FORD-F150 REPLACED, NOW MY BRAKE LIGHTS , CRUISE CONTROL, AND HORN ARE NOT WORKING.WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM , OTHER THAN MY CHOICE OF MECHANICS ?


The air bag ligth is on ? because if it is on you may have a problem with the clockspring that is located behind the steering wheel and it's connected with the steering wheel air bag

How do I take the steering column apart? The airbag light is on, the cruise and horn dont work (all on Steering wheel).I also hear clicking when I turn the wheel.


It sounds like your clock spring, as we call it, has failed under the steering wheel. To remove the assembly you must first disconnect the negative battery cable to avoid deploying the air bag. There are 2 to 4 screws on the back of the steering wheel holding the horn pad onto the wheel. Remove those screws and carefully lift the horn pad off and disconnect the wire plugs. The horn wire is usually red and the air bag usually yellow. You will need a cheap steering wheel puller from the local auto zone to remove the steering wheel. They have a small round disc type that is easy to use and cheap. Now remove the large nut from the center of the steering shaft. Install the tool and remove the wheel. Now you will see a large round disc or air bag ribbon held on by a clip. use an pick tool and a small screw driver to remove this clip. Now trace the wires under the column and unplug the other end and you can remove the ribbon or clock spring. Now feed in the wiring for the new ribbon and reverse the process to reassemble. While you have the horn pad off test the horn switch to see if the horn pad is bad and may need replaced also. If the switch is good find the horn relay in the fuse box under the hood and see if when you press the horn does it get power from the switch. to test the horn itself apply 12volts to the two connectors on the horn and if it sounds it is OK. The system is made up of horn, horn relay, and horn switch. Thanks for looking for a solution at Fixya.com.

Deployed air bags


My daughter has a "99 Saturn SC1, and she hit a curb and deployed hers. I (Many years as a mechanic) replaced both bags, the computer which is located under the center console, and the "clock spring" located behind the steering wheel to get it all working. (No air bag light on while driving) The steering wheel airbag melted the clock spring when it fired. I purchased these all used on E-Bay.

97 nissan pathfinder how do i take the air bag


Is this the steering wheel air bag? Pretty sure the center just clips in and the air bag just comes out. PLEASE PLEASE disconnect the battery before you start. Check behind the steering wheel some have small bolts holding the cover on.

Steering Wheel Radio and Cruise Control stopping work today and the Air Bag Light came on while driving through a parking garage. I heard a crunching sound as I turned the steering wheel to go around a...


This is due to a broken clockspring behind the steering wheel. It works as a constant contact for all acessories on the steering wheel to include the air bag system. It is a simple ribbon of wire to allow for turning of the wheel incased in a plastic housing that shouldn't be messed with. If you mess with it internally, you run the risk of the airbag deploying in your face!! It is best purchased from BMW.

Horn blows when steering wheel is turned. Is is a short?


this is caused by a defective/shorted rotating ribbon contact under the steering wheel called a clock spring, to replace this part u must disarm the airbag remove it and the steering wheel and then replace the clock spring, this is a dealer only part.

Air bag light is on... The str wheel controls r never correct


You have a bad clock spring. This is located behind the steering wheel and all electrical functions from steering wheel must go thru it. Pretty common problem on this model. The steering wheel and the steering column trim would have to be removed to replace it.
