I rotated my steering wheel like the girl in the exorcist.  Steering wheel lights didn't come on and airbag light came on. 

 

I was able to open the center cover, and tighten the bolt that had loosened.  I then took it to get an alignment (lifetime alignment: firestone). 

 

Unfortunately I don't believe I set the wheel back correctly.

 

At this point I'm not sure what to do (haven't spent any money on it yet).  I met a ford dealership mechanic that said I'll likely need a wheel angle sensor or wheel position sensor (forget which one).  He also mentioned that I'll likely need new steering wheel and airbag. 

 

Its hard to understand why I need a new airbag and/or steering wheel.  Airbags are easily $4-500 and steering wheels w/ components $2-300.

 

I looked on ebay, but wasn't able to find 2015 good condition steering wheel w/ air bag & components.  I saw one for $178 for '13-14 model year.

 

Ford dealership said the steering wheel part # for '15 is 3600ag. 

 

Would love to hear suggestions (i.e.- potential ways to fix with minimal cost).

See my reply to your other post.

You need a new clockspring - nothing more.

Saw your other post in wanted section. 

 

The steering wheel nut/bolt loosened I assume because I pulled on steering wheel too much getting in and out of car.  I'm 6'5" 280. 

 

Thank you. I'm researching clockspring.  It is awesome that you know what is causing problem.

I agree - clockspring is the issue.
