SOURCE: horn wont blow

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.

SOURCE: 1999 toyota corolla Horn doesn't work.

Usually the wire from the steering wheel is Green w/Red and the wire to the horn from the fuse box is White. There is only one fuse, sometimes shared with the emergency lights. Check to see if there is power to the horn itself with a volt meter.

With the key in the ignition, tap on the key with something heavy like a pair of pliers, screwdriver etc. It will cause the pin inside the mechanism to drop, and the iginition will turn. Happened to me today, worked like a charm.

SOURCE: I have a 97 Nissan Pickup the horn blows sometimes

i have the same problem right now. a friend of mine said to find out how to deal with the airbag first. he said that something is probably loose inside of there. there are precautions when removing the airbag since it can kill you. anyways, this is what i found while looking around. havent tried it yet, but i hope it helps. im a little tired of being flipped off every so often, lol.
If you are not really mechanical I would be hesitant since the horn button is embedded in the airbag cover. But, I take no liability here.

Disconnect the battery first.
Then take out the airbag fuse.
Then, under the dash on the driver's side unplug the yellow connector to the airbag.
Then, remove the covers on the back of the steering wheel and the two bolts that cover it.
Do not get on the operating end of the airbag when you remove it and hold it away from you and anyone else in the area.
Now, set it down, face up and you can get to what you need.

2001 VW Bug Horn was randomly honking, Now it wont work at all. Relays and Fuses are good. Should I just replace the horn itself? Not quite sure whats the issue.Want to figure out before making drive


it the horn activates randomly when driving and when the steering wheel is moved , the problem will be the ground contact under the steering wheel
there is a small spring loaded button that runs on a slip ring in the back of the steering wheel and intermittent/ random operation can be traced back to a fault in this area
the horn works so it is good , the fuses and relays are working to make the horn work so they are good ( unless there is a grounding problem with the relay causing the relay to operate and blow the horn)

How do I stop horn blowing


Pull off the wires!
The horn will actuate from a relay which is one of the little black boxes on the fuse box. The power to this relay is usually supplied through a fuse, which will also be on the fuse box, and will be clearly marked on the fuse box cover. Pull the fuse or the relay and the horn will cut out.
The most probable cause of the horn blowing is a short on the wire from the relay to the steering wheel, or possibly the wiper contact on the steering wheel. Don't confuse "wiper" with the windshield wipers. it is a small copper finger or carbon brush that makes contact between the horn button on the wheel with a slip ring under the wheel, which in turn is connected to the wire running to the relay.
With modern cars, however, it is a bit of a gamble getting the steering wheel off, since the air bag could be in the way, and the last thing you want is to set off the air bag while you're working on the steering wheel. An airbag is basically an explosive device which can cause serious injury, so if you are not OK with doing such work, take it to a service agent.

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.

The horn is blowing by itself and stcks on untill i hit the horn on the wheel. it is causing my battery to drain


THE CONTACTS FOR THE HORN IN THE STEERING WHEEL WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED. THIS IS SOMETHING YOUR DEALER WILL NEED TO DO BECAUSE OF THE AIRBAG IF SO EQUIPPED.

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.
