ON CERTAIN MINIVANS, THE DRIVER'S AIR BAG MAY BECOME DISABLED DUE TO A FAILURE OF THE CLOCKSPRING, WHICH IS LOCATED IN THE HUB OF THE STEERING WHEEL. Consequence Summary: THIS CONDITION WILL MANIFEST ITSELF THROUGH ILLUMINATION OF THE AIR BAG WARNING LAMP, AND COULD EVENTUALLY RESULT IN A DRIVER'S AIR BAG OPEN CIRCUIT, IF THE PART IS NOT REPLACED IN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME. Corrective Summary: DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE CLOCKSPRING ASSEMBLY ON ALL COVERED VEHICLES WITH 70,000 MILES OR LESS. FOR THOSE VEHICLES WITH MORE THAN 70,000 MILES, DAIMLERCHRYSLER WILL OFFER AN EXTENDED LIFETIME WARRANTY UNDER WHICH IT WILL REPLACE THE CLOCKSPRING AT NO CHARGE IF IT FAILS. DAIMLERCHRYSLER WILL ALSO REIMBURSE OWNERS WHO HAVE PAID TO HAVE THE CLOCKSPRING REPLACED ON THEIR VEHICLES. THE RECALL BEGAN ON OCTOBER 12, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT DAIMLERCHRYSLER AT 1-800-853-1403. A malfunctioning clockspring can also effect your cruise control,radio, wipers, and your horn relay. This can also happen one at a time til none of these are working.The solotion is to get the clockspring replaced . I DO NOT suggest you doing this on your own!

I have had the same issue twice...My mechanic was able to open the hatch from the outside using an offset screwdriver. When the handle breaks you have a small opening that you can insert the offset screwdrive in...You can feel around and find the actual trigger that releasese the lock....You have to push down on it...and puff it will open..
The reason this happens is that the lock gets gummed up and rusts...It is a porr design...I make sure I lubricate at least once a month to enssure it does not get gummed up

sounds like the clockspring has become broken or maybe something is not connected under the steering column. Have an experienced tech look at this as the srs system can be very dangerous.

These problems are all due to a defective rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel thios part connects the airbag and horn and cruise to the wiring harness. This part is called the clock-spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airbag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1/2 hour prior.
