The problem is the rotating contact that connects the horn to the steering column wiring harness, this part is called the clock-spring contact, u must remove the steering wheel to change the part out.

I have a 1998 chrysler concorde. The airbag light on the dash stays on and my horn doesnt work. How do i fix this without costing me tons of money?


Could be a wiring problem or the clockspring in the steering column.
You would need to pull the steering wheel and test the circuits.

Horn not working


The problem is likely the rotating coiled ribbon contact under the steering wheel called the "Clock Spring" Always disarm the Airbag system before starting any work on the system.

Horn blows constantly, doesn,t blow the fuse or anything else. can this problem be outside of the horn blowing assy. on the steering wheel? it,s a 2000 galant. problem occurs all the time if the switch is...


  • The horn relay might have welded contacts (stuck in the on position). Pulling the relay should stop the horn.
  • The wiring harness on the steering column might have a broken wire to the horn relay shorting to someplace that applies power to the relay. In this case, turning the steering wheel all the way to one side or the other may stop the horn, and it won't sound when you press the horn button.
  • The horn button in the steering wheel is stuck on or shorted.

Where is the horn relay located on a lincoln 2002 ls v8. horn blows where alarm is press...but it will not work when i press the horn button insided the car?


If the alarm makes the horn work, then it is not the relay.
It is the horn contact or slip ring.
You need to take the cover off the steering wheel center.
But this could be dangerous due to air bags.
Disconnect battery first.
Steering wheel might have to come off.
Recommend a shop because most people don't have the tools for pulling steering wheel.

Horn wont work.i check the fuse in the door and


Maybe horn became unplugged. Put 12 v power to horn make sure horn works. Put test light on terminal on horn have someone press the horn button, if light comes on and horn does not blow you may need new horn. if light does not come on you may have bad contact at horn button, blown fuse, broken wire, bad horn relay or possibly just a bad ground.

Horn just stop blowing,won't blow


When you press on the horn button do you hear the horn relay click? The start at the horn, bench test it, if it works then check for power, is the fuse good and is the relay ok. If the stuff checks out then it may be the horn contacts behind the steering wheel.

Battery


I've had this exact problem before when being jumped off. The fob DOES NOT make it stop. We removed the fuse that goes to the horn. As soon as your battery gets recharged from the alternator, the fob will work again and the alarm will quit sounding. The only pain about removing the fuse is that the cruise control will not work until you put it back.

Van horn wont work


If your Air Bag light light is aluminated and The Cruise Control does not Work then the Problem is in the "CLOCK SPRING" this Component is Located Under the Steering Wheel and it requires the Steering Wheel to Be Removed.You Must have Complete Instructions on this Procedure or Injury Can Be the result.
