Airbag Light Due to Failed Clockspring on Dodge Grand Caravan

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 comes on and cruise control quit working
had to replace the clock spring
While driving the airbag light will come on and turn off repeatedly. Does not consistently happen. When this does happen the abs and brake light for the emergency brake will turn on and turn off repeatedly as well. This has also affected the horn and windshield wipers during that timeframe.
My power locks an my power seats stopped working an the airbag light came on
just bought the van in October 2014 and the horn or cruise control would not work and the airbag light is always on....looked up any recalls and the clockspring is the problem....getting it fixed as soon as i fix another problem i have with transmission fluid leaking bad.
Air bag light started dinging-then the horn and cruise control stopped working.It was the clockspring recall-the service manager did not like the fact I knew what is was because of this site when I set up the appt.-It was fixed for free.THANK YOU!
