Steering Column Electrical connection
I recently bought a 99 TJ with a 6 cyclinder, 5-speed. The airbag trouble light is lit all the time, the horn & cruise control don't work. I took the airbag off thinking that an electrical connector was unplugged, but all looked connected. There are no blown fuses. I still think it is something in the steering column. Anyone have any ideas what the problem is?
Better be very careful removing air bags. That goes off in your face while working it can kill you. As for the problem its probably the plate between the wheel and column its called the clock spring.
Im not really sure of exactly how it works either. They just wear out or they can be damaged while installing a lift or steering box. People dont think and they spin the wheel while the box is free. You cant just spin the wheel or you will damage the clock spring. That may very well be what happened to yours.
