Frequently failing clock springs

#1

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 with 4.7L. I have placed 3 new clock springs in this vehicle with them all failing (cruise, horn, & airbag stop working) within a weeks time. Not sure what could be causing them to go bad & so quickly.
I greatly appreciate any input.

Thanks,
Heath G

I’d go to another parts stpre for the next one and make sure you get a different brand.

Are you centering the clockspring prior to installation?

[/quote]Given the number of rapid failures, I think you have identified the problem: improper installation.
