broken wire(s) blown fuse(s) Check all the fuses, and look under the dash for anything obviously broken. A more specific answer depending on the type and age of the car.
It doesn't control anything. It is the connection for the cruise switches, horn switch, radio controls(if equipped) and airbag that allow the steering wheel to turn and there to still be a connection.
It maintains an electrical connection through the steering column to steering wheel mounted componts like the airbag, horn, and other wheel mounted controls. I know cause I just broke mine.
The clock spring is located inside the steering wheel behind the airbag.
if your airbag light is on and your horn doesn't work you most likely would have to change your clock spring for your airbag .then your speed control, horn and radio will work and the air bag light will go off.
Airbag is disabled. Possible broken spring under the steering wheel or bad connection.
All clocksprings are located in the steering column under the steering wheel airbag. Have fun!! Ron
I thnk you mean a clock spring. It is located underneath the airbag in the steering column. It has to do with the air bag and such.
Hi, the faulty part is called a clock spring and it is located inside the steering column. It is a device that allows the steering wheel to be turned without losing electrical contact with the airbag sensor in the steering wheel. Do not try to replace it yourself, take it to the garage, but do have it replaced as your airbag is likely non-functional. Ray
A person removes the airbag, and then the steering wheel with a steering wheel puller. Then pull out the sensor and clock spring, replace both, and replace the steering wheel and the airbag.Ê
Either you have a bad clock spring, located in the steering wheel, or you have a bad collision sensor.
start by removing the airbag assembly which will be attached by four screws on the back side of the steering wheel. Usually these are small torx bit screws. Once that is done you can carefully remove the airbag and then undo the wiring from the airbag (with the ignition OFF) After that remove the steering wheel insert and the clock spring is on the back side. Carefully remove it as to not damage the plastic retainer. Reverse these steps for install.
The "clock spring" is broken would be my guess.
Disconnect negative battery terminal. Allow 2-3 minutes for left over current to drain from airbag. Remove steering column trim piece. Remove airbag bolts behind steering wheel. Unplug airbag and remove. Remove steering wheel dampner. Remove big nut in center of steering wheel. Using a puller, remove steering wheel. Disconnect clock spring wireing harness. Remove any bolts holding clock spring in place. Remove old clock spring and replace with new. Repeat steps backwards for re installation. Hope this helps. There are also a couple videos you can watch. dormanproducts.com/video.
If everything is plugged in and working the airbag system will reset itself.
i had the same problem, it's probably your clock spring. its under the steering wheel and it controls the horn, cruise control and airbag. it also could just be a bad sensor or something. Depends if ur cruise control and horn still work.
that mean the clock spring is bad and you need to replace it is behin the steering wheel is a round plastic box.
You must first remove the airbag. This has to be done following directions from a service manual. If you do it incorrectly the airbag can be set off. If your horn isn't working it is probably the spring loaded button in the steering wheel behind the airbag. The plastic keeper breaks and the spring won't hold the button down.
Most likely replace the clock spring. Or check all plugs going to the stereo unit including inside the Steering wheel. Be sure to disconnect negative battery terminal for 2 minutes before opening the steering wheel for safety reasons regarding the airbag if fitted.
you need a diagnostic equipment but you probably got a problem with the clock spring or squib behind the steering wheel
The clockspring is replaced by removing the airbag, and by removing the steering wheel. From there disconnect the old clock spring, and put in the new clock spring, and replace everything in reverse order.
It is the devise that makes the electrical connection between the steering wheel and the steering column. It is what allows the rotation of the wheel and lets the airbag, horn, and cruise circuits work.
You didn't mention the year, make and model of your vehicle but, if those controls are located in the steering wheel, the "clock spring" is probably at fault. The "clock spring" transfers the electrical connections from the rotating steering wheel to the steering column.
It is the item under the steering wheel that provides the electrical connection to the airbag, horn, and cruise switches while allowing everyhing to turn.It is the item under the steering wheel that provides the electrical connection to the airbag, horn, and cruise switches while allowing everyhing to turn.
Most likely it a broken or malfunctioning clock spring in your steering column
Clock spring controls all functions located on the steering wheel as well as the air bags in the steering wheel and passenger side air bag & is located in the steering column behind the steering wheel.
