    noob mistake while changing steering bushings....

    I installed white line steering bushing on my car with no problem at all. During the install I thought it was entertaining to spin the steering wheel around and around freely while it was detached from the steering rack. Meanwhile I ripped the cruise control, horn and airbag wires. Does anyone know the name of the part I need to change out? Is it the steering wheel/column wiring harness?

    On top of my stupid mistake, last Sunday while autocrossing my clock and radio lost all power. I have checked fuses and they don't seem to be the issue. I'm confused about whether or not me shredding wires in the steering column is a related issue to my power problems to the cd player and clock.

    Im totally lost on this issue and any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
