Airbag Light Due to Failed Clockspring on Chrysler Town & Country

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.

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.
