    I recently towed my Acura TL 2005 on a UHAUL dolly from Vegas to socal. It has 180,000 miles. I took it straight to a transmission mechanic to have my transmission replaced. After the transmission was replaced, I picked up the car, and the SRS light was on. I don’t remember it being on when I took it off of the dolly, but it’s possible I don’t remember.

    Mechanic is saying that the clock spring needs to be replaced for $433. I’m wondering if this would have been something caused by the transmission mechanic, by normal wear and tear, or by towing the dolly?

    Thanks

    Under normal conditions a transmission replacement would have no direct connection to a steering wheel clock spring.
    It may have failed due to unusual vibrations when on the vehicle tow dolly, it may have failed due to age / normal wear and tear.
    Chances are there is an open in the clock spring, but pinpointing the exact cause would be difficult.
