Search for the term "Clock Spring"

Yours is broken...[:@]


Thats the "connection" for the air bag wiring in the steering wheel. Might be warranty if your van is new enough.

Referencing the VIN is a common practice. It ensures that you get the correct part despite all the permutations and options in the vehicles.

I took a "rubbing" of the VIN plate on the radiator support (with all the trim and equipment codes) and bring it with me when I visit the dealer parts counter...[8D]
