I just bought my 1996 plym grand voy and I am going nuts!!! It has no owners manual. My horn does not work and my air bag light is on and my cruise control does no work...Can anyone help me by emailing me any suggestions. My mechanic said he needs the wiring diagrams for the horn. Thus, I have no owners manuel!!!!
Sounds like the Clockspring is faulty. Also that your mechanic knows little about Voyagers.
The Clockspring is the name given to the ribbon cable connecting the horn/cruise control switches on the steering wheel to the electronics under the hood. It is coiled around the inside of the steering wheel and looks like the spring in a clock.
If your mechanic is going to attempt a repair, tell him to disconnect the battery negative cable and wait five minutes before taking the steering wheel off. If he doesn't do that, the airbag could go off in his face. He WILL need a workshop manual to do this job, as the Clockspring has to be placed correctly to prevent it being damaged.
