 Air bag light constantly on, horn and cruise control quit working at the same time. it is my understanding air bag is inoperable at this point and the cause is a broken clockspring in steering wheel. this is a major safety hazard that dodge should be required to fix at no charge.
 Dt*: the contact stated the air bag light illuminated constantly, the cruise control was inoperable and there was a clicking in the steering column when the wheel is turned left or right. the vehicle was taken to the dealer who determined a spring in the steering wheel needed to be replaced. also, the contact stated there was a clicking noise in the front underside of the vehicle that has not yet been inspected by the dealer.

 Dt: the contact stated in december 2005 the air bag light illuminated. afterwards, the steering wheel became extremely hard to turn left or right, and a there was a crackling noise in the driver's side steering column. also, the horn and the cruise control were inoperative. there is a technical service bulletin 0801001 on the clock spring. *ak
 Dodge stratus 2001, 46000 miles. car was purchased used from the us government on public sale. air bag light on, horn does not work, cruise control also affected. this is caused by faulty clockspring part located in steering wheel. i called dodge after discovering on your web site that there was a recall for 1,500,000 grand caravans that had a same problem caused by their faulty clockspring. grand caravans also had air bag light on, horn was not working and cruise control was off. i express my concern to dodge since this is a safety issue and i was hoping they will consider fixing this. i been told to take the car to dealership for diagnostics and after they receive results they will consider fixing this. diagnostics were performed and result was that the clockspring was broken. dodge declined my request for fixing the problem. i end up paying for diagnostics to find out what i already knew. i believe that clockspring mechanism for dodge stratus is something what should be recalled for this model since it is safety issue, that appeared on other recalled models.
