Smile xA SRS light advice

To anyone who may be more mechanically inclined than me,

My SRS warning light came on the other day driving home from work. I took it into the shop when I had a free day off about a week later to have it diagnosed. They came back and said that my clock spring had gone bad. I was quoted a large amount of money to have it fixed so I decided to just pick it up
and think about what I wanted to do for a few days, whether it would be to have it fixed or look for another vehicle as it was getting old. Driving home from the shop the light was off, I stopped at the store then the rest of the drive home it was on, then for the last four times I've driven it the light has been off.
In addition I was told that if the clock spring was bad the horn would not work but it was working with the SRS light on (literally used the horn on the way to the shop) and is still working.

So basically my question is this: If the SRS light is off, are my airbags working properly? I just want to be safe.

Thanks for your help!
Ty

It should be working properly, but I'd rather replace the clock spring just to make sure. The job (if you're handy) is a 30 minute or so job. Let me look and see if I can find a tutorial for you.
