New H8 900 CCA battery installed...no difference. Looks like it is the Clock Spring.

That'd be my bet. Its possible that it could be the airbag, but I don't think I've ever seen one go bad.

Tried that too. We swapped in a new air bag just to be sure the code was pure. No difference.

Well unless you have some sort of wiring issue, I'm pretty sure that's the culprit. I've put on a few that I can think of.

What is it exactly that goes wrong with them? Hate to pay $400 for a used one that will not probably last very Iong.

It'd be foolish to pay $400 for a used one when a new one is only $429. I've only replaced a handful of them, so they don't go bad that frequently. The rotary coupler didn't get replaced with the recall. It sounds like you have a different issue than the recall. This is what got installed with the recall.
