Airbag fault light!

Well last week I was turning around on a dirt road and a rock went through my tire and damaged my run a little bit. Don't think it has something to with this but figured I'd mention it. Anyways two days afterwards my airbag fault light came on and hasn't stopped yet. Then last night I noticed my steering wheel controls where cutting off and on and wouldn't work then would work again. Thinking its the clock spring but not sure any ideas?

There is a stored trouble code that can be read with a Tech 2 or Snap-On scanner. Have it checked at a dealer or shop.
Is the horn working? If it's not, or it's intermittent, that would certainly point to a bad clock spring.

Ya when the radio sw controls were acting up the horn wasn't working either. Is there a good right up on the clock spring? I'll take it to the dealer she be part of my
Aftermarket warranty I bought

Clock spring replacement (how I did it)

. Disconnect battery
. Behind the steering wheel, there is a gap between the steering column and horn piece. There are pins in there that hold the horn face on. Those have to be pushed out of the way so the horn piece can be removed. This is the toughest part.
. CAREFULLY remove the fasteners on the airbag, and disconnect it from the harness and set it in a safe place away from you.
. Get a punch and mark evenly on where the steering wheel/shaft spline together (so the wheel can be put back on straight.)
. Undo the bolt holding the wheel on (may be left-handed, not sure) It will be hard to break because it has loctite on it per factory.
. Once the wheel is off, the clockspring is exposed. Disconnect the clockspring and install new one, carefully without spinning the inside of the assembly.

Assemble back together in reverse order, lining up your punch marks on outer lip of the spline and the wheel. Put loctite back on the bolt and secure it. Connect everything back up and pop the horn cover back on. When reconnecting you battery, make sure nobody is in the car away from all restraint systems.

Updating this thread for when others come here for info...

The correct part number for the 2006 clockspring is 92148567

As of Jan 2013 it costs ~$240 from gmpartswarehouse. (Gene Culley)

Wish I didn't know this
