Took the steering wheel off and the spiral cable is indeed broken. I took apart the spiral cable and it looks as though a wire, I will check tomorrow to see which one, shorted out and melted the plastic part of the spiral cable, causing multiple layers to get stuck together. I am going to check the harness/wires that enter the spiral cable from the bottom (non-airbag) side and make sure that none are grounding out before installing the new spiral cable.
Where can you buy a clock spring for a 2005 titan? Thanks
