SOURCE: 1997 Neon Horn Will Not Work

Did you look up under front facia in front of radiator, in center support area? I wouldn't be pulling wheel until I found horn first. Make sure you disconnect battery before, if you do.

SOURCE: 2003 cavalier horn problem

It's a pretty long procedure to type out,so go to autozone.com,register and input your vehicle info,then you can access their online repair guide,they have the procedure to disarm the air bag(s),they are under the chassis electrical heading,follow them to a tee so you don't set the air bag off,the cover maybe screwed on thru the back of the steering wheel or may just be held in place with tension clips,the repair guide isn't clear on this so look for srews first,if you don't see any you should be able to pry gently off with a screwdriver,the horn switch will be in the cavity underneath or possibly attached to the back of the air bag itself,it's just a small springed tab with a wire attached that touches the metal of the steering column.I hope this info helps and please be careful to follow the instructions.

SOURCE: horn doesnt work how do i take the steering

First you want to disconect the battery before you do any work near the air bag. And secondly there is nothing in ther like we are used to fixing back in the day. What is in there now is what is called a clock spring. This is a mess of wires that everything in the steering wheel runs through. I.E. horn, cruise, turnsignal. you get the idea. And its all packed into a neat little can that just plugs in. Trust me when I say this- the wires are way to small to fix- just replace it. As far as removing the wheel, look on the back side of the wheel and you will see the screws that hold the pad on , then procced like normall after disconecting the battery first.

Horn is stuck on 2004 chevy malibu


There is one wire that attaches diirectly to horn that can be removed to stop horn. There is a fuse in fusebox that may also be removed. There are screws in the backside of steering wheel to remove front of steering wheel cover and inspect horn contact for damage or corrosion. If removing steering cover, use care to disconnect airbag actuator to prevent airbag inflation.

Drivers airbag removal / horn switch removal 1998 dodge neon


I have a 98 dodge neon and the horn was stuck on all the time. I could not find anyone who could tell me how to remove the cover on the airbag so I could get to the horn touchpad. this is what i did.
first unhook the battery.
remove the 2 screws on the cruise control buttons on each side of the steering wheel.
remove the bolt(s) from both sides of the airbag bracket
unplug the horn wire
unplug the airbag wire CAREFULLY (it's the one in the center).( I left this hooked up)
I did not need to completely remove the air bag from my car, because my horn was stuck on and I just needed to remove the cover.
after I removed the airbag assembly I removed all the screws holding the cover on I removed the inner touch pad so I could fix it.
I reversed the steps to put it back together.. the horn works as it should.

Horn blows by itself


I verify its not a stuck relay...

I disconnect connector under dash and horn stops...


I then suspect its the Horn contacts or a worn grounded wire in air bag/horn switch assembly in steering wheel.




The decorative Vinyl cover shrinks with age...presses on horn contacts against air bag.

I Disconnect Air bag connector (identified as Yellow wire and Connector) usually under dash.

WARNING: ( I Do not - I DO NoT probe the yellow harness/connector with a meter or test light. A test light WILL Detonate my air bag, and impale the bracket in a nearby object/person - me.)

I Removed screws (2) behind steering wheel - which allow air bag horn assembly to be removed.


I Disconnect Air bag connector in this location as well (identified as Yellow wire and Connector) and then;




The red (color varies) and black Horn wires will be plugged into ribbon connectors usually (2) two that feed/connect to contacts for horn function on face of air bag.

I pause here and verify horn will stop blowing when I disconnect the wires going to horn contacts. So I get horn blowing again...

Check horn: To verify this is the cause; I reconnect (whatever fuse/relay/ connector (Not the airbag connector) I disconnected so they will stop blowing) and get horn/s so they are blowing again...

Then I disconnect the ribbon connectors to verify blowing stops.

Note: The experience I had with horn on

Buick Park Ave was at night when temperature cools after hot day, the vinyl cover shrank and horn blows... pressing on horn area of steering wheel firmly would stop horn briefly - then continue.

Note: I will need a rivet tool and rivets... to reassemble.

WARNING: I Do not drill into airbag explosive container. If I do not know how to carefully drill off correct rivet heads and remove vinyl decorative cover from air bag/horn... I STOP and go to the junkyard or ebay and purchase/replace the airbag/horn assembly.

I continued by drilling out rivets (the rivets holding vinyl cover) by using a drill bit as large (or smaller) as the head of rivet and drill gently to release head from rivet body/shank.



I mark all pieces with a magic marker to verify I reassemble right side up (all metal brackets and trim plates and cover).



I Remove vinyl cover exposing horn contact pads which were sandwiched between cover and air bag container.

I used a razor blade to remove vinyl honeycomb material from area of vinyl cover - that when pressed - would activate horn/contacts.

Only a 1/16 of an inch or less needs to be removed.

(I Bend cover inside out and shave material off of area slowly. Care not to cut myself.)

I Reassemble in reverse order with rivets.

Check horn: ...function at this point... by plugging in horn connectors and assure horn contacts work properly as expected.

The horn on my 02 Odyssey will not blow. I've checked the fuse and relay but they were both good. I believe the horn ring or the contact may be broken. How do you get the steering wheel off?


Before you pull the wheel (which involves removing the air bag unit) you can test the horn switch at its connector with the cable reel (newfangled horn ring). First remove the dashboard lower cover under the steering column. Remove the steering column upper and lower covers. Disconnect the dashboard wire harness connector (4 pins) from the cable reel. Check for continuity between the cable reel no.2 terminal (light green/blue stripe wire) and body ground in each horn switch position. There should be continuity when horn is pushed and no continuity when horn is released. If one or both continuity checks fail, then you'll have to remove the airbag and change out the cable reel.

Is it safe to take horn cover off ? will air-bag blow out ? horn does not work...I think contact is broken....( this is on sterring wheel ....) I hit horn real hard when it was cold, now horn does not...


Airbag wont go off. It doesnt discharge by tampering, its electrical..... Dont mess with any yellow wires tho. Im pretty sure airbag wires are double yellow. Or wrapped in yellow tape/casing.

2001 chevy astro van horn does not work already replaced 20amp fuse any suggestion.


really need more information. does your air bag light stay on, if so your clockspring below the steering wheel could be bad. disconnected the wires at your horn and with a test light see if the light comes on at the wire while someone presses the horn. if it does the horns are bad. there should be a horn relay under the hood for the horn. it could be bad. i hope this helps.

The horn contacts in the steering wheel are stuck together. I want to inatall an aux horn button, but I need to know which wires come from the contacts.


There is two wires. A positive and negative. I would take those wires out and run them under dash to new swith. Doesn't matter which way you hook up to switch. You can always reverse it. You can safely pull SRS/air bag fuse, remove cover from steering wheel, pull the button, disconnect wiring and bring under the dash. Fairly easy.
