SOURCE: I have a 2006 volkswagen passat v6 and i'm getting a airbag fault message when i turn on the car. My horn along with my steering wheel controls for the radio and menu settings are not working. The
Nope. Sorry to tell you there is no such thing as "just a fuse". Even if there IS a blown fuse involved, I can promise you that the fuse did not CAUSE the problem. Fuses do not cause electrical circuit problems - Electricl circuit problems cause blown fuses. This may sound trivial, but unless you can understand this simple "cause and effect", you will spin your wheels for days trying to figure out any electrical problems in your vehicle. Don't feel bad, probably 95% of the motoring public does not quite understand this....you are with the MAJORITY.
With all that said, you most likely have a broken contact assembly (also sometimes called "clockspring") in your steering column. This is the part that allows the electrical connections to be made at the steering wheel while at the same time, allowing the steering wheel to be turned around in circles. (See "A" in the diagram below.)
Here's the other bad news:
On most cars, the clockspring is available as a separate piece. However, according to the information I have available, the steering column on your VolksWagen is serviced only as a COMPLETE unit. Only the steering wheel, airbag module, and ignition lock cylinder can be transfered. So, you might be in for an expensive repair.
