2005 Kia Sportage - 2 issues

Air bag light remains on.
Horn not working.
Auto electrician says it will cost $500 to fix.

You probably need to have the “clock spring” replaced. $500 is a bit high but not totally unreasonable. https://repairpal.com/estimator/air-bag-clockspring-replacement-cost#:~:text=Air%20Bag%20Clockspring%20Replacement%20Cost%20-%20RepairPal%20Estimate&text=The%20average%20cost%20for%20air,parts%20are%20priced%20at%20%24304.

The clockspring is $183, 1 hour labor plus the diagnostic fee.

Unfortunate, but not a crazy high cost.
