    Thanks Guys: I figured from other posts, it was probably related to the clock spring, its beyond me to try and fix, I guess the dealer will get my money this time. Would this cause my blower motor to quit as well?

SOURCE: air bag light stays on & horn does not work

replace the clock-spring ribbon contact under the steering wheel, that is the problem, u have lost the connection due to a broken ribbon contact.

SOURCE: 1992 Dodge Ram 50: Horn honks all by itself.

Check the horn actuating contact at the centre of the steering wheel. It may be damaged or mis-aligned.
Also check the carbon contact that runs on the slip ring under the steering wheel (associated with steering wheel horn actuate switch) It may be damaged or mis-aligned.

If none of the above are faulty, you should look for a possible intermittent short to ground on the horn actuation control wiring.

2001 4Runner. Car security went bust first, then the horn stopped working, then the hazard lights. Now, the brakes as well. Any help please?


All except the brakes sound like fuses failing, or wires breaking. A quick check of the fuse box should remedy those.

What do you mean by "the brakes"?

does the pedal go to the floor without stopping the truck?
do the brake lights not come on?
is the brake indicator on the dash on?

need a little more to go on

Would a bad Flasher relay cause the brake lights not to work?


The flasher does not stop the brake lights from working. Check # 18 fuse in fusebox under lower left side of dash. if it's ok, the brake light switch, on the brake pedal arm is next. light green wire with red stripe is hot if fuse 18 is ok. Depress brake pedal, light green with no stripe should have power. if not, replace brake light switch. If light green wire has power with pedal depressed, combination switch under the steering is next. Remove the cover from around the combo switch {under the steering wheel}. depress brake pedal, light green wire should have power. If it does, pedal still depressed, orange with light blue wire & wire with light green & orange should have power. Those 2 wires are brake & rear turn signal wires. { The turn signal switch should be in the middle, not right position or left. while checking for power in the last 2 wires. Good Luck drvolt.

SOUNDS LIKE YOUR ABS IS ACTIVATING it will not set a code because computer thinks it is doing what it is supposed to do. so what is most likely happening is a wheel speed sensor is dropping out causing unit to see one wheel at zero mph and abs kicks in. need a scan tool hooked to it to see which one is causing issue

No rear main brake lights.


It may be the brake switch, on most vehicles the brake switch is located under the dash at the brake pedal lever, A plunger type switch when brake pedal is depressed plunger extends compleating circuit , may just need adjustment. peace S.R.

a lot of times the sensors on each wheel become covered with brake dust if you remove the wheels and clean the sensor with brake cleaner this will solve the problem but keep in mind it may happen again when the brake dust gets on the sensor again

ABS light and skidding on brake pedal


if you live near an autozone they will scan it for free and let you know what is wrong. one likely source of the problem is the round gear on each axle. one of them may be cracked which will cause the sensor to read improperly and make the abs come on for that wheel. the scan should tell you which wheel
