Air bag light ON, Horn doesn't work.

Ok so I went to use my horn the other day, and it didn't work. I was a little shocked, but shurgged it off as I figured it was probably just a fuse that needed to be replaced. A little while down the road my air bag light came on (and is still on). That part is a little worrying, as I don't want the airbag to eject as I'm going 70mph down the interstate. I replaced the fuse for the horn but that didn't solve anything either. Any ideas, suggestions?

Sounds like a bad clockspring...

You may need to have the dealer scan it. You are more likely not to have the
airbag deploy than suddenly deploy. When the system lamp is on it normally wont
fire the airbag in event of a collision.

Best of luck!
