Hi, My name is*****'m happy to help you. During our conversation, I may be presenting you with different things to try, and ask you some Questions to get a better understand of the issue so I can answer your question properly. So stick with me to the end, and I am sure we should be able to get this issue resolved for you!

Your issue is what they call the Spiral Cable, also known as the Clock Spring.

This is what allows power to travel to the steering wheel. The Spiral cable has a certain range of how much it can be turned. If over extended it can break. But if not over extended then it's simply just worn.

Due to the fact that the Air Bag system goes through this part and that to replace it the drivers air bag would need to be removed, it's best to let this be done by a trained specialist who is familiar with the safety involved on working with Air Bag systems.

Let me look up the cost of the part for you.. Hang on

There is a few different types, it best to call your local dealer with your vin number to get the correct part number. Once you have that, if you want to get it online it would most likely be cheaper.

Here is the cost ruffly. Plus once you get the part number, you can enter it in the search for this site to get the part cheaper as well.
