Does the clockspring have anything to do with Wipers, Turn signals and high beams

Asked by Jun 17, 2017 at 01:52 PM about the 2007 Chrysler 300

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Wipers, horn , turn signals and high beams all went out at once. Does this have
anything to do with the clockspring or the multifunction switch? I also hear
clicking noise in steering wheel when I turn.

My guess is you have damaged wires in the steering column.

Thanks! This problem started after purchasing a new battery. I am scheduled to go to the dealership on Monday but am not sure what to tell them to do. Im a female and don't want to be taken advantage of and having unnecessary repairs done to make the bill high. Should I have them put t The car on a diagnostic machine?

A broken clock spring will cause the air bag light to come on. All of the other electrical functions except the horn, are controlled by the multi function switch. You may have a combination of problems. If the steering wheel feels loose on the column The clockspring bushing may have broken causing you all of these problems.

Thank you. This is very helpful. I have been researching these problems for the last week. Whats the best way to find out if this is the problem without it costing an arm and leg

If the battery was replaced with the key in the ignition. A voltage spike could have blown a few fuses. You can check the fuses pretty easily yourself at home.

Fuses all look good. I tried switching around relays that didn't help. I've read somewhere that disconnecting the battery (negative only) and leaving it off for 30 minutes could fix the problem. Would you agree? Or could it cause more damage/problems?
