Hey, new to the forums and TCCoA.

Basically whats going on is that im getting a code: 23 from my air bag light. Now i googled it to see what it ment. Basically what i found was this: "Okay, if I'm understanding you correctly, there is two long flashes and three short flashes. If this is the case, then the SRS Air Bag system has detected a fault and stored a DTC. In this case, code 23. In this case DTC 23, or B1923, is "Memory Clear Circuit Improperly Grounded". There are two possibilities for this code. One is a bad or broken ground connection or a bad Air Bag Control Module.

If you are saying the horn and cruise control do not work also, then it is a good possibility the Clockspring Assembly/Spiral Cable in the steering wheel is bad.

The air bag will not deploy while driving. In fact this code indicates the air bag system is disabled. If you decide to have it repaired, you should do it before your next accident."

So any suggestions on replacing the Clockspring Assembly/Spiral Cable. Basically the horn doesnt work and the air bag light. Have yet to try cruise control.

Im thinking i may have broken something or nearly broke something while taking dash out to replace heater core, fun.

Well thanks in advance

Well you lock your wheels straight ahead, pull your steering wheel and it's right there (the clockspring) so you remove it and replace with new. I would explain in better detail but I gotta go...

Mine flashes....in 3 flash bursts. I can stop, turn off the car, and start it back up, and often it won't flash anymore...

It's been doing it more lately though.

How do you pull the wheel?

Please check my info before you try it!!!!! I don't want an airbag to go off in your face. :eek:

I was looking into fixing my car after I had an accident and if I remember correctly you don't actually take the wheel off.

Disconnect the battery, and wait a few minutes so the air bag does not go off.
Then take a look on the steering column behind the wheel and you should see two round covers. Unscrew the two screws under those covers and you should be able to pull out the airbag to expose the clock spring.

That's about all I figured out, my problems were bigger than just the airbags, insurance totaled the car and I just bought another one.
