It seems there is a problem with the Chrysler mini-vans, the "clock spring" in the steering wheel that connects the speed control, horn and air bags to the electrical system in the van. The air bag warning light keeps coming at all times when turning the steering wheel. The speed control, and horn also do not work when the air bag light is on. This concerns me that the air bags will not work because of this defective connection in the steering wheel. According to a recent article in the press, Chrysler has sold over 124,000 of these parts. I recently was involved in a collision in which the air bags should have deployed and didn't.
