Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
In the last few months, I had 3 or 4 incidents when the horn would sound continuously and I had to tap the switch (in the airbag area) a couple times to get it to stop. Finally, it went off spontaneously and I couldn't get it to shut off at all without pulling the fuse. I'm driving it now without a horn and would like to get it fixed. My mechanic said that about all he could do was to get an entire junk assembly for $800-$1000 and replace the switch. I'd like to investigate it further before dropping that kind of money into it. Can I safely remove that center console on the steering wheel, and I assume that means removing the airbag assembly, to see if the switch can be repaired? Can I just buy a new switch, which I assume is some kind of diaphram? Any ideas on how to get my horn back for under $1000?
I have the same problem. I pulled the fuse out, in the box under the hood, on the passenger side of the engine, by the coolant overflow. It killed my horn issue.
Funny enough, the only part of my horn that I miss is the beep when locking my car. I don't really use the horn and perhaps when some idiot cuts me off one day, I'll be sorry.
I just had my AC Rad fail, and fixed that today. I am picking up my Jeep tomorrow, and have asked the mechanic if he has any ideas.

Although this does not explicitly cover the horn, it will give some kind information about the innards of the steering wheel:
