Clock Spring with ESP Steering Angle Sensor: Best Match for Jeep Wrangler Compass, Dodge Caliber Journey Nitro, & Chrysler Sebring 200

The steering wheel of most modern vehicles performs more than the basic turning tasks.

When you start noticing an airbag warning light or traction control light on the dash, the horn not working, or issues on some buttons, it’s likely due to a faulty clock spring. An OBD2 scanner will confirm the problem, or you may also book a steering inspection to be sure.

Once the problem is confirmed, your mechanic will advise you on the spare parts your vehicle needs, but in most cases, you'll need to find a compatible clock spring replacement.
