    Yes. But hands & fingers don't touch them. Sometimes it goes off just waiting at a red light.

    Possible control switch or clock spring failure, will need testing by a qualified mechanic....not a diy fix.

    Thank you. It may be same issue as the recall for airbag wiring in steering column
