You need to replace the steering wheel rotatating contact, it is shorted, the part is called the clock-spring contact. In order to replace this part u must remove the steering wheel, u MUST disarm the steering wheel mounted airbag before doing this, if u don't the airbag can fire and cause serious injury.

You have all the informations to find your problem. jump a wire on connector X4 G1 tan wire to ground and check X1 E5 with a test light or multimeter to see if there is a output, you should have 12 volts. If you dont have any voltage the horn relay is defective. I check in the shop manual and the relay come with the underhood fuse block.

Anybody know how the horn wiring behind airbags is supposed to go? 1998 Chevy cavalier 2.2L. I'm replacing the airbags cover and don't know where the wire and ground goes...(


It is really very simple. The horn lead with the plastic connector and the spring pushes in and turns to lock in the large round hole at the upper left center of the steering wheel. If you look into the hole, you will see the contact down in there with a plastic "tube" with a slot in it for the horn connector to go into.

The ground clip (wire with brass or steel clip on it) simply pushes into the hole in the steering wheel center near the bottom (It grounds to the steering wheel center).

How to take the steering wheel cover off without touching the airbag?


Are you talking about the large part in the center of the steering wheel? If so, that is the air bag. The cover of it doesn't come off and is part of the air bag assembly.

2001 isuzu rodeo Popping sound underneath -sometimes it sounds like it is in the engine sometimes it sounds like it is underneath or by the wheels front or back. It usually happens during acceleration but...


Need more info. Does it happen only in motion? Does this happen when sitting still and increasing the rpms? Does this happen when turning or going straight or both? Have you checked around your radiator fan to assure nothing is simply touching the fan? What sort of "pop" is it.. can you feel it in the steering wheel? Does it have a metallic sound, a dull sound or maybe even a plastic sound. Popping sounds are hard to diagnose without loads of information on them or even a more generalized area where the sound is coming from. Your description of where is coming from, pretty much said.. all over under the truck

Powwer steering out of control


It will probably just sit there when you start the engine, then take off like a rocket when you touch the steering wheel? The wheel will take off in the opposite direction of the way you tried to turn the steering wheel. (you start to turn the wheel to the left and it rips out of your hand and goes right until it slams the full right stop, then rockets back to the left until it hits the full left stop and shoots back to the right again and repeats this process until the engine is shut off.)
If this is the case, you have the hoses from the control valve to the power cylinder reversed.

Electric steering wheel adjustment not working - Reach/Rake


The noise you can hear is the motors still working but the worm nut has broken inside the steering column. The motors still work with the memory system you have but they are not moving the wheel as the worms are still turning but the nut which is attached to the steering column will be floating. Remove covers and check this before you order the new parts as i am informed that a full column is required in order to replace this little part. As it in no way affects the actual steering of the wheels you may be able to repair this without going to major expence. Hope this helps. The same happened with mine but i just wedged the steering in one place and left it. Its been two years now and i can still hear the two motors working every time i put in the ignition key but without the steering wheel adjustment. Ask yourself do you really need it
