Two weeks ago I noticed my air bag light was staying on. We also found out that the horn and the cruise control stopped working. We have checked all the fuses and found out through the my car stats web site this same problem was part of a recall involving a clock spring problem. Since no dealer in my area will honor this recall it is still broken.

Horn malfunctioned. Consumer had the vehicle inspected after the air bag light flashed. Consumer was told that the clock spring needed to be replaced. This make, model and year was under a recall for the clock spring, but this vehicle was not included in the recall due to VIN.

Clock spring problem: My 1998 Grand Voyager had the same symptoms and problems subject to the recall but the dealer and Chrysler insist my vechicle not covered by recall. I explained that maybe the problem is more widespread than they admitted, as I can see from your site, at least 109 others agree with me.

Early fall service engine soon light on. Dealer charged several hundred dollars to fix. Soon after air bag lite came on while driving but often went off or flickered. Believed it was loose wire or fuse, caused by dealer fixing previous problem. So did not believe it was urgent. However now cruise control does not work either. Became alarmed that problems were connected and air bag may not be functioning, and that this problem may be dangerous. Went to NHTSA site and was shocked to see recall notice posted for air bag lite/no cruise control clock spring problem. I am concerned because my vehicle has more than 70,000 miles on it but it was manufactured in 2/98, within the recall parameters please advise. I will be contacting my dealer as well. Thank you for your oversight of this problem.

The horn on the van was intermittent from nearly the first use. We rarely use it an did not remember to inquire about it over a period of several years whenever we were at the dealership for service. Finally, one time we asked about it and were told that we had a faulty sop module and that it was likely that the driver-side airbag wouldn't function. We wrote to daimler-Chrysler and they responded that they wouldn't cover the replacement. Seems ludicrous that a safety device on a new vehicle could be rendered useless and the manufacturer wouldn't step-up to replace it.

This clockspring assembly failed over a period of time, begining in about 2000 with the cruise control failure. This was followed by the airbag failure, as manifested by the airbag check lamp remaining on. Finally, the horn failed to work. I subsequently replaced the clockspring assembly this month, which repaired all the above problems. I have the defective clockspring, and am willing send it to you for analysis if you so desire.
