The first thing to check would be the fuses, if all the fuses are good then i would take a look at the clockspring, the clock spring is located inside the steering column and its job is to hold the connections from air bag and horn and other steering components, its like a lot of wires in a tape measure, the wires pull in and out as the wheel is truned, this sounds like this is the problem , heres a picture to help explain it, hope this helps. sorry the plug with arrow is wrong picture, its the colr one thats the right one..i have a dodge stratus - johnjohn2_5.pngjohnjohn2_78.jpg

I have a dodge stratus 2000. My airbag light is on and the horn does not work. However the cruise control does work. Help!!!

The airbag and horn depend on wires running down the steering column. You may need to take a lot of covers off to find where the broken wires are.

Hi Guru/Master, I have a 2006 Dodge Stratus SXT, 2.4L Engine. It has AIRBAG light on, and horn doesn't work. I guess it is the clock spring needs to be replaced. I couldn't find the part/model of...

Depending on the options in your vehicle , you could have one of 4 clocksprings.4649130AC, 4649193BC, 4649194AC, or 56044931AB. This is a dealer item only.
The clockspring is a ribbon wire that is coiled up insidethe steering column. This component is the subject of many discussions onthese threads. Many times the steeringwheel or column is disconnected and then rotated beyond the center position itis required to be in. This will causethe clockspring wire to break. Theclockspring delivers current to all of the systems above it... the airbag, cruisecontrol and horn. When it fails (and they do a lot) the wire breaksleaving one or all of the circuits open and inoperative. This will causethe airbag light to come on and shut down the airbag system. As long asthat light is on, the airbags will NOT deploy, even in an accident. Sometimes it's intermittent as the wirebegins to break. Once it breaks completely,the 'airbag' light will illuminate.
This was a factory recall for many vehicles and many customers are unaware ofthat. Check out the last site for information on researchingyour own vehicle for factory recalls. ...or contactyour local dealer and they will accommodate the replacement for you.

Location of a 2003 dodge stratus horn, also not loud enough

Horns are usually in front of the radiator and behind the grill--look for two of them, one on each side. Make sure they both sound. If only one works, there is a significant reduction in sound level. There may be road debris stuffed into the horn's throats--poke a hooked stiff wire into the throats and see if anything comes out. Most are sealed and can't be taken apart to clean--replacement is about the only recourse. (look in a wrecking yard for replacements)

I have a 2001 Stratus. Airbag light stays on

That happened to me when the clock spring in the steering wheel broke. But the clock spring controls the air bags, horn and cruise control. Check if your horn and cruise control works. If not, I bet it's the clock spring from turning your wheel. It was about $150 to replace. Good luck!

1997 Dodge Caravan Horn and Airbag light

It's the " clock spring " . Dodge has a lifetime recall / replacement on this part. Somehow it controls the air bag and is tied into the horn and cruise control .
