Clockspring is also for the horn and cruise control, along with the air bag, is the horn working?
If so, clockspring is probably not the issue.
For those wondering the "clockspring" is the wire behind the steering wheel that allows the steering wheel to be turned while still maintaining electrical connections to the horn, cruise and airbag, also radio controls on newer models.
It looks like a wound up clockspring, flat coil of wire.
Airbag code 32 means: Driver's Side Airbag Circuit High Resistance, or Open Circuit
So could be a problem with the airbag itself or the wiring to the airbag.
Did you test the old clockspring wire with an OHM meter?
If connections are good, 0 ohms on each wire, then it wasn't the clockspring wire that set the 32 code.
The air bag light will only flash the most important code if there is more than 1 code set.
So with key on, engine on watch for the flashing after a few seconds, 3 flashes, short pause then 2 flashes = 32, then longer pause and a repeat of 3 flashes, short pause and 2 flashes.
If you fix the 32 code issue there could still be another code/problem, so watch and count the flashes, it may not be 32 again.
