I have a 1997 dodge carivan the air bag light came on and remained on. I took the steering wheel off and found the clockspring was broken all the way through, it stopped my horn, cruise control and the air bag light was on any time the ignition was turned on. If you do the work yourself make sure you disconnect the neg. side of battery and wait 2 min. before working on the air bag part..

No it will not set the air bag off, the airbag computer will not send a signal for deployment unless there is a crash. It is a serious safety issue though and you should get if fixed, the clock spring is fairly cheap ($40-50).

As per www.totalrecallinfo.com there are 3 recalls on this item, but not the clock spring.

Yes. It could be partially broken.

If the steering wheel clock spring is broken both your horn and air bag will not work and can possibly malfunction.

This is most likely the clock spring in the steering column. Chrysler had a recall on incorrectly wound clock springs. I would recommend taking it to a Chrysler dealer for confirmation.

It is the electrical connection under the steering wheel that allows for rotation.

A spring driven clock is wound and that creates energy for the clock to work.

Check for a disconnected wire or a blown fuse. If both functions are located in the steering wheel the clock spring may have broken. If the steering wheel was allowed to spin while the rack was disconnected the clock spring is probably broken.

Could be what they call the clock spring if you have an air bag i don't suggest you do it ! The air back system and the clock spring are fragile.

Typically, no. Spring clocks can be affects by the shaking, if it is severe enough. If the clock falls and breaks, then yes, it may stop. If the clock is electric, and the power supply is broken, then yes, the clock will stop.

Bus Clock is based on the System Clock. In other terms Bus Clock is derived from system Clock. Bus Clock is usually half System Clock. (Busy Clock = System Clock / 2)

The energy stored in the clock is in the form of elastic potential energy of its coiled spring .The spring is coiled by winding the clock.
