MY HORN ONLY BLOWS SOMETIMES AND WHEN THE WHEEL IS IN CERTIAN POSITIONS. WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE PARTS THAT ARE FAULTY ?

2008 Nissan Armada • 50,000 miles

My 2008 nissan armada horn only blows sometimes and when the wheel is in certian positions. What are the possible parts that are faulty? I believe the problem is in the part on the steering wheel that maintains contact when the wheel is turning but I do not know the name of it.

Clock spring. It's a wound-up ribbon cable in a plastic housing under the steering wheel. It's needed to insure a positive electrical connection to the air bag 100 percent of the time.
