Chrysler is recalling about 500,000 1996-1998 minivans and an extending a warranty on 1.3 million more because of the clockspring in the steering wheel, which provides power to some internal components, may have been installed off-center. This may cause the air bag warning lamp to illuminate; the driver's air bag, horn, or cruise control may stop working. For details, call DCX at (800) 853-1403 and have your vehicle ID number handy.
Note: this procedure will certainly void your warranty and may cause personal injury either during the repair or in a post-repair collision; it could also result in unintentional airbag deployment.

I posted this in response to a clockspring question. This basically tells do-it-yourselfer how to replace the clockspring which some dealers are charging hundreds of dollars for.
When everything is done that pesky airbag light shouldn't come on while driving and you should have your horn and cruise control working once more!
