Sounds to me like the multifunction switch is gone.

I know on F150's the steering wheel has to come off and yes be careful with the airbag.

The wire's going to the bag are very delicate. I recommend wrapping the airbag in a towel or something when you get it out and place it far away from where you are working on a flat surface.

Yes you do. Unplug the fuses for the airbag and walk away for awhile. Then come back and unplug the airbag harness from the steering column. Do not under any circumstances allow a voltage to connect to the airbag harness. Static or otherwise.
