SOURCE: I have a 2005 Nissan Altima and my horn don't work

you may have a problem with the clock spring or spiral cable as nissan calles it. it is a part of the air bag system and also horn signal runs into and out of it.if that part is bad, your air bag light will flash and your horn will not work. has anyone been doing any repairs inside of the steering wheel?? it may just be unpluged. if you are going to tackle this your self to look inside of the steering wheel, make sure you disconnect the battery for at least 3 minutes, befor you start playing with the air bag. you dont want to blow it up.

The horn switch and the air bag and cruise control wiring in the steering wheel go through the clock spring, ford calls it air bag sliding contact. The clock springs have been know to go bad.

You may of forgot to plug back in the ground wire that connects to the horn bracket under the air bag. It's just a single wire and should have a tiny black connector on the end of it.

Horn doesn't work,abs light on dash stays on and also cruise control does not work either


Typical reason for no cruise and horn is a bad clock spring underneath the airbag. Typically you have an airbag light on as well and not an abs light

Hi Guru/Master, I have a 2006 Dodge Stratus SXT, 2.4L Engine. It has AIRBAG light on, and horn doesn't work. I guess it is the clock spring needs to be replaced. I couldn't find the part/model of...


Hello:
Depending on the options in your vehicle , you could have one of 4 clocksprings.4649130AC, 4649193BC, 4649194AC, or 56044931AB. This is a dealer item only.
The clockspring is a ribbon wire that is coiled up insidethe steering column. This component is the subject of many discussions onthese threads. Many times the steeringwheel or column is disconnected and then rotated beyond the center position itis required to be in. This will causethe clockspring wire to break. Theclockspring delivers current to all of the systems above it... the airbag, cruisecontrol and horn. When it fails (and they do a lot) the wire breaksleaving one or all of the circuits open and inoperative. This will causethe airbag light to come on and shut down the airbag system. As long asthat light is on, the airbags will NOT deploy, even in an accident. Sometimes it's intermittent as the wirebegins to break. Once it breaks completely,the 'airbag' light will illuminate.
This was a factory recall for many vehicles and many customers are unaware ofthat. Check out the last site for information on researchingyour own vehicle for factory recalls. ...or contactyour local dealer and they will accommodate the replacement for you.

Air bag light on no horn 2002 suzuki xl7


Most vehicles have a "clock spring" behind the horn button area on the steering wheel. The clock spring has nothing to do with clocks and inst really a spring. It's a flat coil of wiring that is would around in a circle and connected to a stationary item in the middle of the steering column. The outer end of the coil is allowed to move around (coil and uncoil) as the steering wheel is turned. The clock spring typically supplies power to the horn and to the airbag. This is a relatively simple fix, but unless you have mechanical experience, this is a repair I would leave to a mechanic. Pulling the steering wheel and the airbag can possibly lead to airbag deployment and injure or kill you.

My 1997 Nissan pickup's horn doesn't work. Changed fuse and relay and still nothing.


try supplying power to the horn with a jumper wire from the battery. If the horn still does not work the horn is bad.

If the horn works you'll need to take the plastic covers off of the steering column and remove the airbag. You'll want to check continuity between the light green/black wire on the back side of the clock spring and the horn switch. If there is no continuity you need a clock spring. If there is continuity than the horn switch is bad.

1998 Ford windstar horn wiring


There is something called a clock spring in the column that is used for the airbag, horn and cruise control buttons. This clock spring if messed with will cause a/bag light to come on and possibly cause a/bag failure if there is a collision. DON"T mess with the wiring in the column. Run new wires in to the horn or install an a/market horn.
