Oh I forgot..

I was a bit nervous about the air bag going off when I was done..

So I didn't tell my wife why, but had her sit in the driver seat and turn the key to "on" while I 'checked' stuff from outside of the vehicle...

My clockspring was also bad and when i put it together it kept saying that I had low resistance and this was very frustrating!
It turned out to be the pins that the clock spring plugs into and if you look closely there is a little copper flap that grounds the 2 pins and it was staying grounded while plugged in. it should read around 2.4 ohms. Hope this helps!

Thumbs up Clock Spring

So I've got a 2006 saab 9-7x v6 and the clock spring went bad after they replaced my front boot. No doubt the guy turned the steering wheel and bam no more horn, airbag, or radio controls.

I'm having an impossible time finding a new clockspring with the part numbers listed. Does anyone know if the clockspring(s) for the 2006 trailblazer/envoy/reiner will fit for the saab 97x?

any help would be huge!

Full CCW test

Full CW test

Full CCW to CW is six 360 degree rotations. Three each way from centered. Rack and pinion steering gear required only TWO rotations each way from centered.

Cover on

Surgical field

I ohmed all the pins out, did a test run of the connectors plugged in with the steering wheel off, worked fine, put it all back together, and voila! Saved $180.
I just want to say thank you so much for your info I tried everything to figure out why my steering wheel buttons didn't work to checking the two amp fuse in the steering wheel and was about to replace a airbag sensors because my airbag light was on man thanks
