94 Aerostar steering wheel stuff

Everything to do with the electronics on my steering wheel does not work,
i.e. the cruise, horn, flash to pass. The airbag light flashes constantly
and you can hear 5 beeps when the key is in accessory position continuously
cycles. I do have brights. Is this something to do with the contact
between the steering wheel and the column?

the clockspring assembly under the steering wheel is bad. dealer item only,
ant it is not something a first timer should do.
