Do the horn and cruise control still work all the time or only when you turn the wheel?

Since the other controls are working I don't think its the clock spring. If the ribbon failed none of your steering wheels would work and your airbag light would most likely be on.

My guess would be a loose connection at the head unit that's being "corrected" as you turn the wheel.

At that rate it might be the clock spring, but I wouldn't recommend trying to repair it yourself given the airbag involved. That could be very expensive and very painful.

That is unfortunate i was really hoping to stay from the dealership. I have a feeling they would charge me a dumb fee just to tell me why, and not even fix the problem.
