SOURCE: 1995 Buick LeSabre - horn blows

My horn would honk without any assistance from me. The reason was because the plastic cover for the air bag and horn switches had shrunk so tight that it pressed on the horn switches. If your problem is intermittent then cold temperature would also cause the cover to shrink. This is how I solved the problem on my 1995 Buick LeSabre:
Disconnect the negative battery cable.

  1. Under the hood I found a long black plastic cover with the words, “Maxi-Fuse/Relay Center”
2. 2. There are two plastic twist locks (turn ¼ left) and one small wing nut holding the cover on. When the cover is off I see two black fuse covers side by side and below them are several relays. Some are gray and some are black.
3. My horn relay was the second from the left as I faced the rear of my car. It was gray. Some may be black.
4. A small green retainer tab had to be pushed out before I could pull the relay out. On the back of the relay were two orange wires that supply 12V. One green wire that goes to the horns and one black wire for ground that goes to the horn switch under the air bag.
5. I cut the black wire and wired in a spst push button switch that I connected to ground.
6. I mounted the push button switch near the driver’s door on a flat part of the dash. I used very strong double sided tape to secure the button switch to the dash.

My horns now are activated when I push my new horn switch button. My problem solved.

Someone recommended removing the air bag/horn switch unit from the steering wheel and relieving the tightness of the plastic cover. There are probably more than one way to this.

SOURCE: 1995 Buick Lesabre horn blows continiously.

One simple solution would be to act european and use your bright lights to let folks know you are miffed instead of the horn. j/k

I agree that it is something internal to the airbag module. Looking at the steering wheel you see a vertical line running down the center where you would press for the horn. Under the covering are thin pieces of plastic that have circuits in them. Most of it is within the plastic, but in a few places they bare. They are seperated by a very tiny gap. Then you push on the covering you close the gap against the hard plastic layer that actually covers the airbag. This closes the circuit and turns the horn on. Normally when you release pressure they seperate again and the horn stops / turns off. It sounds like somehow the thin sheets have become stuck together and the horn is now always on. I cannot think of a good way to fix the stuck problem short of replacing the airbag module.

How can I remove the horn relay from a 1995 buick lesabre


I believe it is the fourth relay from the left passenger side in the engine compartment against the firewall. I am assuming your horn intermittently goes off by itself. It's a interior heat related issue. The horn pad cover on the steering wheel has a membrane layer. It's basically a switch that has one wire that goes to the horn relay to activate the horn. The Buick GM logo embossed on this plastic cover is where I found it most sensitive to any light touch. Unhook the battery. If you carefully cut the right edge of the the steering wheel horn pad and carefully pry it out a little, it will fix this issue and still be able to use the horn. It's another GM defect. I hope this helps! Let me know.

there are many posts here in lesabre horn / heater problems, search for them and you may find your answer. should be no connection between the two, must be crossed wiring somewhere or faulty wiring connection block.

Unplug directly on the horn if you can find the horn fuse. Which probably controls more than just the horn.

My 1998 LeSabre has the intermittent horn problem which is definitely temperature related. It likes to go off about 3 AM on a below 32 F evening and nobody in or near the vehicle. It occasionally starts...


You are correct in your diagnosis,unfortunally it is an expensive fix because you are dealing with the air bag assembly. This was a issue on several Gm cars, when they were under warrenty we would just replace the whole thing,but having to pay for it that's a whole different story.Your only other option is to put a remote horn switch on the side of the steering column and bypass the horn pad /air bag

95 buick lasabre horn problem


Ever find out what to do with this? I'm running into the same problem and see multiple refrences to it, but not much for follow up on what fixed it. I pulled the fuse for mine, but it kills the trunk release and automatic locks...so I'm not a big fan of that.

Horn for 95 Buick Lesabre


Mine did that too. It eventually blew itself out and the horn relay is under the hood but not sure which one it is. I just don't have a horn.
