    Default 1999 Dodge Caravan - No cruise control, horn, or airbag

    Recently the cruise control and horn stopped working on my 1999 Caravan.
    Also, the airbag light came on. All three of these things are through
    the steering wheel, but I can't find any loose connections, and the
    fuses seem good. I even remove the steering wheel pad/controls and
    everything looks right. Any ideas what could cause this? Where should I
    look next?

    Thanks

    Never mind! I did a search and found that it is the "Clockspring"
    causing the problem. It's an item that connects the electronics between
    the column and the wheel assembly. You have to be careful when replacing
    it because you could easily set off the airbag if you don't disconnect
    the battery and discharge everything. Looks like it costs about $75
    online. Thanks anyway for the help I know I would have gotten here.

    You didn't do much of a research if that is the only info you got. Your
    vehicle has a lifetime warranty on the clockspring, If it is bad the dealer
    will replace it free of charge.
