Obviously there is a short in the system probably in the wiring and likely it is exposed wiring. Motion,moisture, and heat would then effect the wiring and cause it too short out at different times and for varied lengths of times. driving your car would cause it to get hot under the hood, so after awhile the wiring shorts and your horn honks. Turning on and off the system causes motion and if it is stuck in a particular position when it shorts than the horn continues to honk

The steering wheel needs to pulled off, there is a short somewhere in there. Better have it done, cause if it isn't done right, the air bag can deploy.

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)

One honk means all doors are closed. Door ajar you have 2 honks telling you a door is open. My 03 Explorer has had the door ajar light on for awhile

Horn randomly honks(very annoying while your trying to sleep) HELP!


its possible that the relay is the problem as most relays have a second power feed wire,if it shorts to the horn side of the relay it can blow the horn.doesn`t happen very often but it does happen.this could explain the horn blowing without the fuse in.you can get a door key made at a lock smith to solve that problem.

'97 Honda Accord- Horn honks spontaneously; honks several times in a random pattern every few minutes. Turning car off and restarting it seems to temporarily solve problem, but random honking will then...


THE SWITCH IN THE STEERING WHEEL IS PROBABLY GOING BAD OR HAS A LOOSE CONNECTION THAT IS GROUNDING OUT AND COMPLETETING THE CIRCUIT AT RANDOM. I REALLY DONT KNOW HOW OR WHY SHUTTING IT OFF WOULD TEPORARILY FIX THE PROBLEM BUT WITH ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE BELIEVE ME. ALSO TAKE A LOOK AT THE WIRING AND THE HORN ITSELF TO SEE IF EVERYTHING LOOKS OK THERE.

Horn honks when turning, randomly


sounds like a electrical problem. When you turn it is completing the circuit some how, sounds like wires are touching each other and making the horn honk when turning. easiest thing is remove the fuse if possible.

2000 Mitsubishi Galant - My radio is asking for a code.


Once your code is input, press either the am/fm, CD, or Tape button to activate the radio (different models use different buttons to 'enter' the code).

More information needed about your horn, does it just randomly honk?
