Clock Spring..?

When I baught my truck the airbag light would flash when I started then stay on. A few weeks later my horn stoped working, I can hear the relay click when I push it and I checked the fuses. Someone said it might be the clock spring, I have no idea what that is and how to fix it?

if the relay is clicking I would think it is the horn itself. The clock spring is in the steering column and you have to remove the steering wheel to fix it I believe. That might be causing the airbag light and horn but i'm not sure

the clock spring IS behind the steering wheel and can be replaced in the driveway if done properly... And the clock spring is the #1 cause of your problem diagnosing over the internet.. if you have a test light, you can check the horn connector to see if you are getting power.. with the help of soemone else of coarse.
