Will a bad steering coupling cause a bad clock spring?

Asked by Aug 09, 2019 at 08:49 AM about the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have gone round and round with Hyundai corp who have deemed my bad
steering coupling as an annoyance and will not be fixing it. This was about
two or three weeks ago they made the 'final determination'.
Since, when I turn sharply on either left or right, my airbag light will come and
stay on for a few minutes, turning off after a couple miles. I'm assuming here
it's a bad clockspring, which I haven't had formally checked but am going to
a dealer this weekend.
Before I stake my life against the dealer, would this even make sense? A
bad steering coupling left unrepaired for about two or three months cause
the sensor behind the steering wheel to go bad as well? What I've read
seems to indicate that a clock spring 'could' be damaged upon
removal/repair of the coupling?
