Functions of a Clock Spring

  • The wires from the airbag system and other electrical systems connect through the bottom of the clock spring's electrical connector to the end of the conductive ribbon. The end of the ribbon is attached through the wires on the top of the clock spring's electrical connector to the air bag unit and other electrical parts such as horn or cruise controls. When the steering wheel revolves, the conductive ribbon rolls and unrolls allowing electrical contact between the electrical system around the entire arc of the steering wheel movement.
  • With a malfunctioning Clockspring, any or all of the electrical functions that are terminated at the steering wheel may not work. A common problem in Toyota Hilux vehicles is the SRS airbag warning light will show constantly on the dash. You can also lose function of the horn or other instruments.
  • We supply Clock Springs to fix these issues for Toyota, Mitsubishi and Nissan vehicles.

Clock Spring Other Names

  • While the function stays the same with all car clock springs, different spellings and names exist for this car part. Alternative names for the clock springs are clock spring coil, coil assembly, cable reel assembly, coil spring unit and contact reel.
