Horn doesn't work in car but does work with key fob

Trhe horn in my durango doesn't work when pushed on the steering wheel but when I lock the door or hit the panic button on the key fob it works. Could there be a short in the wiring or are they on different circuits and can it be fixed by changing a fuse. Really dont waqnt to spend a lot of money at the dealer getting a simple problem repaired.

Your horn inop problem is in the rotating contact for the horn connection underneath the steering wheel, it is called the clock-spring contact by us techs because that is what it looks like, if you do replace it yourself then you must disarm the airbag or serious injury can result.

Crimestopper SP501 car alarm/remote starter will not respond. The 2 way one doesn't work, the sidekick does.


You need to program your crimestopper sp-501 key fobs, you need to program both the 2-way and the 1-way key fobs, during the same key fob program session. First find your valet button/switch, when you have found it, turn your ignition on and press the valet button four times, if you have a toggle type switch for a valet switch, toggle it up and down four times, when its in remote key fob program mode, it will honk your horn 4-times followed by 4-parking light flashes. Once your have done this press the lock button on the 2-way key fob, horn will honk and the 2-way will sing a little song to confirm programed, then press the lock button on the 1-way key fob the horn honk will be your confirm programed. turn ignition off this will exit you from program mode. then shut all doors and test key fobs for operation functions....hope this helps you out

The horn will not work on my 96 mercury grand marquis. The horn makes a sound when locking the door with the remote keys, but it will not work when pushing on the steering wheel. I've checked both...


Your horn contact in the steering assembly probably uses what is called a 'slip-ring' type contact and the 'ring' which is part of the steering wheel itself may be contaminated or the stationary contact, which uses low-pressure spring material, is either worn or the spring has grown weak. You will have to gain access to the inside of the steering wheel center section to check this.
Also, unless you have actually electrically tested the horn relay, I would check for a relay with the same part number (should be stamped into the case) and temporarily swap them. Your security system may employ a separate relay to sound the horn when locking or unlocking.

1999 Durango 5.9 horn doesn't work from steering wheel but does when setting the factory car alarm. (I assume it's the same horn.)


If it is the same horn, there is probably something in the area where you push to activate the horn. The horn itself is obviously working so there is no fuse problems, most likely your problem is in the steering wheel.
