ok then you will need to remove the air bag and recheck the connections on it if it is fine then you will need to reset the air bag system with a scan tool

I just remembered when I put the steering wheel on again I miss aligned the little white location button and locked the steering down on it in the wrong position and drove the car. The steering was very hard so I took it apart again and found what I did wrong .could I have damaged the clock spring? all are functions are OK excerpt the air bag.

yes you most likely did and will need to replace it the circuit for the air bag run into the clock spring you should get he car scan for code if you have a driver side air bag code replace the clock spring
