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.

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.

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.

How to remove the cover off the steering on a 2002


Does your vehicle have an airbag in it? (SEE WARNING BELOW)
If so, you have to let the vehicle sit (no key in ignition!) for AT LEAST 30 minutes to deactivate airbag. Remove the screws from the back of the steering wheel to remove the airbag unit, (once airbag is removed, you should be able to see a little spring and a wire attached to the spring that is a push in and turn setup. That is attached to your horn button and if that is where the short is, fine. If not, you will have to proceed with taking the steering wheel off.) Make sure you make that vehicle sit for as long as possible before removing the airbag. Otherwise, it WILL deploy in your face and set you into the back seat at the very least!!!!!
To be safe, disconnect battery before even attempting to do anything with the steering wheel.

My 1990 chevy astro mini-van has a loose tilt steering column. I need a diagram and instructions on how to repair it. It also needs a horn kit and new ignition switch any help would be appreciated.


Ok Here is what you need to do this job
1. #8 tork head wrench
2. # 3 tork head wrench
3. New cylinder or lock buy at junk yard or from dealer or lock smith with keys.
4. Tube of lock tight
5. steering wheel removal tool Rent it from Schucks
6. steering wheel spring compression tool Rent it as well.
7. Two dental picks to remove spring.
Now make thew wheels straight and pull the horn button off should just pop off, next you will see a nut 3/4 inch remove the nut now find the right size of threaded bolts out of the kit and put them in the holes with puller over the steering column remove steering wheel. Forgot to mention remove the metal cup and plastic ring held on by a3 philips screws. This is your horn button, next put the U shaped compression tool on the bolt that you took the nut off and compress the spring 1/4 of an inch to 3/8's of an inch. Now take the picks and get them under steel ring slide the ring over the steering bolt and pull clamp off now remove plastic plate you are now where you can get to the 2 screws on top to tighten the steering wheel. you will see a screw just at the end of the cylinder lock remove the one screw and pull the cylinder lock out, put a drop of lock tight on each screw and tighten down look to see if you see a wire by the lock ring is sticking up it will have a 45 bend in the copper wire there will be two one side by side this has to be pulled out along with the plastic holder that holds the two wires in this also holds the lock in as well as the one screw, install the new lock put lock tight on the screw and install new cylinder lock and key once you have done all of this leave it apart and get back to me so I can tell you how to remove the bueaty ring to get to the screw on the back side.

My steering wheel on my van is loose


I think the problem you have is the steering assembly being loose.

To repair this, you must remove the steering wheel and work slowly down the column assembly, removing the indicator switch, ignition switch and other assorted springs and things. Lay out the removed parts in the order and orientation you remove them, take digital pictures or draw sketches at all stages, watch the spring placements. I also unplug the column looms to give you more room by moving the switches away for the area in the column where you are working.

Once you get far enough down the column you will see the three bolts that are loose, hidden in a sub assembly. I have only been able to tighten two of these over the years. This is a common fault.

Rebuild the column using the reverse of the order you removed it.

Good luck
