An electrical connector arrangement for a motor vehicle steering assembly that includes a steering shaft having an insulator member mounted thereon. A pair of conductor rings are supported by the insulator member and are adapted to be electrically connected to an occupant restraint cushion and to rotate with the steering shaft. The conductor rings cooperate with a pair of contact members fixed with the steering column member so as to provide current to the conductor rings upon operation of a sensor for actuating an occupant restraint cushion.
In combination with a motor vehicle steering assembly including a steering column member rotatably supporting a steering shaft fixed with a steering wheel having an occupant restraint cushion, said vehicle having a sensor for actuating said occupant restraint cushion, an electrical connector arrangement interposed between said steering column member and said steering shaft for allowing relative movement therebetween while continuously providing electrical continuity between said sensor and said occupant restraint cushion, said electrical connector arrang...
