Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
The horn won't honk from the inside of car but beeps when alarm is set. Also, the airbag light is on. Been told by a person at VW that it "may be the horn itself or relay of some sort". Can't afford a mechanic while living on a disability payment . . . . any help appreciated.
You have a broken rotating contact under the steering wheel, it is a ribbon that looks like a clock spring, it is called the air bag clock spring contact, anyway replace it and your problem will be fixed, be careful to disarm the airbag before you pull the steering wheel, disconnect the battery for 1 hour and then disconnect the airbag control module before starting any repair.
