    Must be a fault in the system -- only problem that comes to mind as a known issue is the clock spring thingy in the steering column. Are you sure everything is plugged back in?

    Not something I am all that familiar with. Let me see if I can point you in the right direction...

    Ok, looks like the clock spring is what powers the the air bag mounted in the steering wheel. Apparently, it can break if you turn the steering wheel while the steering shaft is disconnected from the rack. I remember reading about other issues, but cannot seem to locate the exact thread that I am thinking about...
