STEERING WHEEL

Dodge Stratus

I own a 2001 Dodge Stratus. Just the other day when turning into a parking space at my job, my steering wheel started making this clicking sound, and my Air Bag light came on (and stayed on). I got out of the car and went to work. When I got off, the light was still on and I noticed that none of the buttons on my steering wheel would work. My cruise control or horn would not work. Please help me with my problem.

Thanks,
Crystal

Sounds as though the " clockspring" or the contact plate under your steering wheel has broken. It is what makes the connection up to the wheel for all hand controls and the air bag
