I have two diffrent issues. First my turn singals have a mind of their own sometimes they work and sometimes they don't.When they stop working if I turn the hazards on they start working most of the time. Second, my horn goes off by itself sometimes, most of the time I can get it to stop right away by hiting the horn. I think it might be the modgle in the stearing collum. If anyone would give an opinion on these issues it would be much help. Thanks

Re: Horn And turn signals
Try moving the tilt wheel feature up and down to see if the condition worsens or improves. There's a ribbon cable on the outside of that column that may have worn off the insulation in some spots. If that's it, you'll need a steering wheel puller to get to it. You may not have to replace the cable, just insulate it from inside the column. You can use tape, but a wide piece of heat shrink, cut along one side would be cleaner.

The noise you here may be a bad flasher, sometimes you hear a buzzing sound.I have found that a lot of dodge, jeep and Chrysler have a problem with aftermarket flashers.Sometimes the flasher will go bad and not work or make noise.If you like you can go to an auto parts store and try the flasher they sell, if you have a problem still then try a dealer flasher.See if the 4 way flashers work, or try to put signal on and gentle move the signal switch arm up , or down and see if the signal starts to work. if it does then you have a bad signal switch, also called a multi-function switch. let me know the out come, good day.
The first thing is to replace the flasher, the 4ways and signals use diffrent flashers, after replacing the flasher or changing it with the 4way flasher and see what happens. if this doesnt help then you may have a bad signal switch, a good trick is to turn on the signal and watch it as you move the lever around, pull back a little or lift it more and pull down a little, sometimes the switch contact goes bad and by moving the lever without take signal off will make it flash and if that happens then the signal switch is bad even if the 4ways work this still means a bad switch, the 4ways are wired through diffrent contacts then each signal, good luck.
Google Service Bulletin No. 04098A. There is a recall for the hazard switch. My car's vin is not within the range, but I have the blinker problem. I was told by the Chev. 800 number that if a dealer determines that is the problem they will replace it. You can also buy the switch for about $20 and replace it yourself if you don't want to have to deal with a service dept.
