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: airbag light stay on 2003 chevy tahoe

The air bag light will remain illuminated if a fault has been detected in the air bag system.
The onboard computer will need to be interfaced with diagnostic equipment to read the fault.
This is also the only way to reset the light.
Good luck, I hope this helped.

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.

My 1999 Chevy malibu horn does not work after an the airbags delpoyed


If your not going to fix the horn plate in the column. Wiring a horn button is easy. You need a hot lead from the fuse panel to the after market button and from the other side to the horn button under the hood unit (grill area). Most horn unit are self grounding.

Go to autozone.com and register your vehicle with them. Go to repairs link. They will give you step by step instructions for free. You may have to ground the airbag sensor or connections prior to removal or your airbag will blow up on you.

2003 Chevy Malibu. While driving down the road turn signal keeps clicking randomly.


what this means that either you have a short in the wire harness going to the turnsignal/dimmer switch assembly . or the switch contacts inside the dimmer switch itself are shorting. this would be a good place to check for the intermitant problem

Horn keeps blowing fuse/shorted out



Removing airbag: disconnect battery for 30 minutes before proceeding -- sounds like you know the rest -- just proceed carefully. If the airbag didn't deploy when you punched it, you're not going to set it off easing it out.

Broken Horn won't *******- 2003 Chevrolet Malibu


Hi. If your airbag has not deployed, you don't have to replace it. The airbag may have to be removed to get at the horn circuit. Try taking it to an independent auto repair place. I'll be willing to bet that they'll give you a better price for the repair. Good luck! ricardok45

Malibu 2003 LS


you may have an electrical short somewhere.

have a mechanic check under the steering wheel airbag. i've discovered pinched horn wires under there once in a while. if not, follow the horn's wire(s) down the steering column to the horn. remember to solder & insulate your wire repairs well with heat-shrink.

(you may have to remove the horn's fuse or disconnect the horn so you can drive it to the garage!)
