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.

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.

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.
Airbag light on and horn does not work. Not fixed yet.
Air bag light comes on then goes off cruise button will stay lite and not set now will not come on at all
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.
