Both problems are perennial, in form I could not specify. Air bag light is always on and may fail in an accident; horn, by not working may not prevent an accident, it almost happened once already; cruise control is an inconvenience not having. Wipers go on by themselves, specially when turning on the blinkers. At times wipers don't stop and may divert your attention from traffic, it could be a dangerous situation.

According to 2 dealers. The clock spring for the air bag, if defective, will fail to deploy the airbag. Dealer says it is a very common thing to go bad but the manufacturer considers it a wearable item. (if bad, it will fail to deploy the airbag... is this not a major safty concern, especially since it is a common failure in chryler mini-vans?).

problem #48

The clock spring in the steering wheel failed. This in turn controls the horn, cruise control and above all, the airbag. When I went to the dealership, the service advisor knew exactly what the problem was, without performing a diagnostic. This was one of several he knew of and was rumored to be a recall. I contacted customer service at Chrysler, but received the expected brushoff, and was told that as the steering wheel was turned it causes the part to wear. This seems unacceptable, especially with a safety component. You may as well tell me that the seatbelt latch will fail after so many connections.
