This has been going on for quite some time now. The airbag light is illuminated, my horn doesnt not work, and ive noticed that when i put pressure on the steering as if i were pushing the horn, it feels like nothing is there. Last time i posted about this i didnt get much help, so im really open for any suggestions...
And it's not really a clockspring, it's just a coiled up (looks kinda like a clockspring) wiring harness that allows the steering wheel to rotate while providing thru-connections for things like the air bag, horn, cruise controls, etc. that reside inside the steering wheel. I agree with the others that your problem is most likely caused by a bad clockspring.

Let me know if you find a good deal on one. I have the same problems as you do and I checked my clockspring. Broken and installed upside down by the previous owner I guess. Just hard to find one under $200 around here with Cruise Control.
