Driver side air bag warning lamp illuminated so probably not working, speed control will not engage, horn sounds when the steering wheel is turned to certain angles while driving, front windshiled wiper makes uncommanded start-up and shuts itself down, automatic seat and mirror adjustment settings become lost on a daily basis. Contacted dealer and they said they could fix it but we would be responsible for the charge and they were not sure it if would be the same problem as what is being investigated in the recall. We had a copy of the Nov. 6 press release about this problem. I spoke to the daimler Chrysler corporate office about this and they said that the recall is still pending. I felt that you needed to hear another report of this failure. I have safety concerns that the air bag is not working and I have no horn. The vehicle has not been repaired and the symptoms are present now. Thank you! dt. This dash wiring issue occurred Saturday, Jul. 20, 2002.
