No Blower + Air bag light??

I went out running errands today and when I got in my Jeep the blower wasn't working. I tried turning it on and off. I also tried adjusting settings. Then I noticed my air bag light was on. I just started to get out of the parking lot and the blower came on and the airbag light went off. Does anybody know what might cause this? They seem to be related.


Thanks in advance,

Jeff N

OK, it did it again after I made a pitstop after work today. This time I noticed my signal lights did nothing, my radio was out, and my rear wiper wouldn't work. This on top of the air bag light coming on and the defroster fan not blowing.


Anyone want to take a stab at how these items are related??

Clock Spring Assembly.
It was a recall for 98-99.

I have been having problems with my key needing a slight "jiggle" to get it to turn in the ignition. I noticed last night the "second" I touched the key, everything came back on. Not sure if thats a fluke chance or if it was related. I tried wiggling the key a number of times to see if it would result in it shutting things down again. It sounds likely though.

I have heard lots of people talk about clock springs in the past. However I have never known what one is. What is a clock spring? How hard is it to get at? Do they honour recalls on 8yr old vehicles??

This sometimes happens to me, also. My whole dash goes dead, radio quits, no headlights, nothing. Pretty much all I have are gas and brake pedals. To fix, I just slam the gauge pod back and forth a few times. Usually works



If your hammer can't fix it, get a bigger hammer!

Disassemble your cluster, sand down and slightly bend the electrical connections on the back of the cluster. Apply some dielectric grease and reassemble. Should cure the problem for good.

That doesn't sound like the infamous gauge cluster problem. When he says his radio goes dead and he loses his headlights. he gauge cluster problem is just everything on the dash cluster going dead.

On a side note, I don't lose my headlights. Just ability to signal.
