Clock spring????

Ok I'm new to the WF and I am not the buggest tech guy with vehicles...so here it is I guess the clock spring in my tj is bad so my horn, air bags, and cruise control don't work. Wondering if theres a way around paying $300 or more to get a new clock spring. All I want is my horn to work any ideas?

i have the same the problem in my 97 too, you could go buy a replacement horn from advance auto or other places like that, or you could do like i did and make the dealership pay for it, been 6 months and still waiting on a part because apparently "chrysler hasnt released that part yet". Ive just learned to live with out it.

The horn, I can live without... I live in Hawaii, where the use thereof is reserved only for Yamn Dankee tourists who just don't know any better.

The cruise control, again, not a necessity, since I don't have it on my TJ anyhow.

The airbags, though... well, I was born ugly enough. As much as I love my rig, in the event something did happen, I don't need "Jeep" ktatooed across my forehead. When it comes to safety, I'd fork out the money to fix it. It's not terribly difficult to replace, and completely worth it IMHO.

My clock spring just went out and it has caused my fuel injector to shut off. Due to the clock spring causing a short.
