Most likely a break in the circuit in the clockspring.

If you know of someone that has a Scan Tool to read the codes for the air bag the information below might help you.

Trouble Codes for the Occupant Restraint System

The Occupant Restraint System contains three modules ORC, Left SIACM and Right SIACM (If equipped with SIACM) that store active and
stored DTC's.

Some DTC's will require replacing the implicated module. Other DTC's will require some Diagnostic procedures to determine
defective components.

For these codes, replace the implicated module. Check the wiring, contacts and fuses before considering to replace any modules.

Occupant Restraint Controller:
ORC Accelerometer
ORC Firing Stored Energy
ORC Internal #1
ORC Internal #2
ORC Output Driver #1
ORC Output Driver #2

Left Side Impact Airbag Control Module:
Left SIACM Accelerometer #1
Left SIACM Accelerometer #2
Left SIACM Internal #1
Left SIACM Output Driver #1

Right Side Impact Airbag Control Module:
Right SIACM Accelerometer #1
Right SIACM Accelerometer #2
Right SIACM Internal #1
Right SIACM Output Driver #1

For these codes, refer to the table of contents procedure:
ORC, Calibration Mismatch
ORC, Cluster Message Mismatch
ORC, Driver Squib #1 Circuit Open
ORC, Driver Squib #1 Circuit Shorted
ORC, Driver Squib #1 Circuit Shorted To Battery
ORC, Driver Squib #1 Circuit Shorted To Ground
ORC, Loss of Ignition Run Only
ORC, Loss of Ignition Run/Start
ORC, Loss of Ignition Run/Start w/SIACM
ORC, No Cluster Messages
ORC, No Odometer Messages

Post what codes you are getting.

Going through this right now on my 14 ram with the driver #2 squib circuit open and was looking at the PT manual to help trouble-shoot. Check all you plugs for a loose connection. If no luck, you should probably stop there and take it to the dealer because the rest points to clock-spring or airbag. For my RAM those are pretty pricey to replace at random. Could be a loose connection at the airbag or connection or faulty clock-spring. In either case, they require pulling the airbag. Although a simple task, it is dangerous!
