Airbag Light Due to Failed Clockspring on Chrysler Town & Country

Problem Description and Possible Solution

Illuminated of the airbag warning light may be caused by a lost connection between the clockspring (behind the steering wheel) and the steering wheel-mounted electrical components. Other steering wheel-mounted controls like the horn, speed (cruise) control, or radio controls (if equipped) may be inoperative. There is a lifetime warranty on the clockspring as specified in a combination of recall campaigns.

Airbag light sometimes comes on (perhaps several times a week; maybe 1 to 5% of the time) when turning the steering wheel, usually when making a right turn. Light goes out in about 15 seconds and usually stays off.
I can't the horn to work, the cruise don't work. The passenger window comes down but takes it own times to raise.

the 2 rear windows stop working/ the airbag protector light stays on. The right hand sliding door handle breaks easy.. I saw another van that has the same door knob missing.
HAD ADRESSED THE RECALL OF CLOCKSPRING IN JULY 2010. PROBLEM REOCCURRED 3 MONTHS LATER. REPLACEMENT PART CONSISTENTLY ON B/O AND INCONVENIENT TO GET DONE.
Whenever i turn the steering wheel by making a left or right turn, the Airbag light comes on. It goes off by itself.
I replaced the clock spring in my Chrysler Sebring. The horn quit, airbag light came on, engine light came on and the passenger windows stopped working. I hope this fixes my problem.
vehicle has had this light on since 150,000 miles. Light is constantly on. only shuts off once in a whilebut only for a minute or two.
Air bag light comes on sometimes and stays on for a little while and goes off. Some days are better then others. Sometimes it comes on a lot and most days it does not come on.
