That is going to be a dealer item only. If your out of warranty you can try to find a used one from a salvage yard.

My horn won't work. I've replaced the fuse and the relay. The steering wheel clicks. So what do I do next?


if the steering wheel clicks when you push on the horn then the wiring from the horn pad out to the horn is good.if it clicked before you replaced the parts then you didn`t have to replace them.check the horn at the horn,with someone pushing on the horn pad tap the horn to see if it will try to work if so then the horn needs to be replaced if not then run a power wire from the battery positive to the connector at the horn if the horn works again the horn needs replacing.

I have a 2006 Jeep Commander and the horn blows for no reason. It is as if the alarm is going off.


I just had the same problem the horn would blow for 30 seconds every 3 minutes. The dealership just told me I need a new horn pad and that it was not covered under the "bumper to bumper" warranty. He also said it would be $460 and be at least 4 days.

The air bag in the steering wheel was taken out, now the horn does not work. Do I need a new air bag in order to repair the horn?


YOUR HORN PAD AND AIRBAG COME AS A ONE UNIT.YOU HAVE TO REPLACE AIRBAG BEFORE YOU HAVE HORN CONTROL AGAIN.BEST TO TAKE VECHICLE TO DEALERSHIP BECAUSE TRYING PUTTING IT IN AT HOME IS DANGEROUS AIR BAG CAN DEPLOY WHILE TRYING TO PUT IT IN.

My horn keeps going off at random times.


y horn on my Seabring would go off all by it's self. The dealership told me it was because we did not have a key fob to turn the security system off. We paid $120 to get the fob and have it programmed. The horn did not work except on the panic function of the key fob. I checked the fuse and relay and both were working. I was not getting voltage to the wire on the horn. I had the dealership look it over and they said I needed a new airbag for $600 plus labor. The problem was not in the airbag. The horn pad had a short in it caused by the tabs on the back of the Chrysler emblem that is located on the steering wheel cover. The prongs had made a hole through the horn pad. The horn pad is the switch that connects when you press the horn. To describe it imagine two pieces of copper foil much like aluminium foil. There is a microsopic thin layer of pourus plastic like membrane on each piece of foil. When you press the horn the foil makes contact.
THE FIX:
The tech had removed the airbag from the wheel. I did not have to pull that. Here is how to pull the air bag. There are two screws that hold the cruise controls on the steering whell. The are located on the back of the wheel. When those are removed you can remove the screws that hold the airbag. You will see them. I don't know what size of torx bits you need. Pull the bag our and disconnect all the wires. It will not blow up. Use a 10mm socket or wrench to remove four lock nuts. You will have to pry the metal cover off of the airbag cover. Be sure to bend the prongs back in for replacement. Now, Use a pair of side cutters or your choice tool to cut the holders that retain the horn pad. Pull the horn pad and cut the indented spots out. I used a single edged razor blade. Once the holes were made I used a pocket screw driver to open upt the horn pad. Don't damage the two foils. When you get an opening large enough to grab pull the two foils apart and use electricle tape to insulate the two inner sides of the foil where you made the cuts. Now put it back together. It took me a little over an hour. No shop will asume the responsibility to tamper with the airbag so you are on your own unless you want to pay me. I am an ASE Master Technician. Don't pay the $600 the shops want. It's already broken. What can it hurt?

Horn not working on a 2006 ford f250 xlt


The cause of this is not the horn or fuse in most cases, it is caused by the rotating contact that connects the horn button, in order to repair this you will need a new clock-spring contact, to install the airbag must be disarmed, his has to be done by the book or serious injury can result.
