1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Horn Not Working

I have a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan, 174,000 miles, and the horn is not working. The fuse was checked and found to be fine. At first I thought that there was a problem with my airbag also but eventually that light came on as it was supposed to. How to I either find/fix the relay or replace the horn?

    My problem is identical...no horn, air bag lights on, and the fuse is OK. I haven't checked the horn relay however( those usually don't just go bad). I'm at a lost.....I'll call the dealer and check on the recall list.

The most common problem with this is the clockspring, it is located just under the steering wheel. It will cause the horn not to work, airbag light to come on, and the cruise not to work. There is probably a recall on this. Contact a local dealer to see if the recall applies to your car.

1998 dodge grand caravan fuse panel diagram


There is also a labeled HORN relay in the fuse box next to the battery... the fuse box is long and rectangular. The inside of the lid has the diagram for both the fuses and relays it contains. The other is a fuse panel under the dashboard on the driver's side. It cover lights and a few other items. The fuses are labeled, but the relays are NOT. One of the relays, controls the emergency hazard flashers. You need to check both places and replace any fuse that states HORN and the HORN relay, to be sure the problem goes away.

Horn is not working on 2002 dodge grand caravan.


Try checking the fuse in the fuse box panel either under your hood, or under your dash. If the metal on the inside of the fuse is busted, then your horn won't work.

1998 Dodge Caravan Sport Horn will not work.


Check the switch on the steering wheel for damage. if the switch is ok, move on to the fuse. replace the fuse if it is damaged.

Now, if the horn switch and fuse are ok and, the wiring in between the horn switch and actual horn is intact, replace the horn.

Horn inop 2003 grand caravan


Yes, it sounds like the connector on the horn could have been accidentally unplugged while the work was being done.

The horn is under the hood very near the front grill on left or right side.

Horn and cruise not working?


The clockspring in the steering column is broken, It causes the airbag light to stay lit and the horn and cruise control to stop working. See below:

On 10/5/2004 a Motor Vehicle Recall, number 04V480000 was issued on this vehicle for this problem. From the recall bulletin:
ON CERTAIN MINIVANS, THE DRIVER'S AIR BAG MAY BECOME DISABLED DUE TO A FAILURE OF THE CLOCKSPRING, WHICH IS LOCATED IN THE HUB OF THE STEERING WHEEL.

Consequence:

THIS CONDITION WILL MANIFEST ITSELF THROUGH ILLUMINATION OF THE AIR BAG WARNING LAMP, AND COULD EVENTUALLY RESULT IN A DRIVER'S AIR BAG OPEN CIRCUIT, IF THE PART IS NOT REPLACED IN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME.

Remedy:

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE CLOCKSPRING ASSEMBLY ON ALL COVERED VEHICLES WITH 70,000 MILES OR LESS. FOR THOSE VEHICLES WITH MORE THAN 70,000 MILES, DAIMLERCHRYSLER WILL OFFER AN EXTENDED LIFETIME WARRANTY UNDER WHICH IT WILL REPLACE THE CLOCKSPRING AT NO CHARGE IF IT FAILS. DAIMLERCHRYSLER WILL ALSO REIMBURSE OWNERS WHO HAVE PAID TO HAVE THE CLOCKSPRING REPLACED ON THEIR VEHICLES. THE RECALL BEGAN ON OCTOBER 12, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT DAIMLERCHRYSLER AT 1-800-853-1403.
