When I push the center of the steering wheel where the horn is supposed to be, there is no horn noise and no indication that anything is under the cover. How can I check the horn?

The track bar and bearings in the intermediate shaft are notorious for failure. I've replaced the track bar 3 times in less than that many years until I finally got a 'good' one. For the intermediate shaft (between rag joint and steering box) buy a competition redesigned one. You can find them on the net for about $167.00. Pricey...but worth it. Especially if you're running oversized or factory oversized tires.
Now, if I could just find out why my heater diverter door slams shut for no reason and freezes me out I'll be all set.

Are the tie rod ends tight? Is the trac bar (frame end) tight? The steering boxes on these trucks require more input that a 1/2 ton truck or a car. How is the alignment? The caster on these should be set to about 5 degrees, the original specs allow a lot of wandering.

SOURCE: Put wrong fluid in power steering of Dodge Ram

They make a machine to do this, but it is too expensive to buy for just one use. The best thing to do it to take off the power steering lines where the connect to the steering rack. Then start the truck and it will pump out the fluid in the reservoir. Feel free to keep adding fresh fluid to it while its running just to ensure all is out. Then, to get the fluid out of the steering box, connect the lines back up, fill the reservoir, and with the vehicle running, crank the steering wheel back and forth from lock to lock. This will take the fluid from the rack and eventually bring it back to the reservoir. You must then again disconnect the lines and flush it out of the reservoir. You may want to repeat this several times, it may take a long time, but will be cheaper than replacing the steering rack, box, pump, and lines. Good luck, and have fun. :-P

SOURCE: 2001 Ram 3500 Truck: replacing powersteering pump on 1999 dodge 1 ton 3...

it is best to remove the pwr st. pump and vaccum pump assy as a unit which is held to the front cover w/2 15mm head bolt and a support bracket on the bottom bolt next to the block @ the pwr st pump. and disconnect all lines. get the seal kit and replace them @ this time. if you don't and just replace the pump you will probably develop an oil leak where the shaft meshes w/ the adapter.

2011 Dodge 3500 horn does not work but the fuses are good what do we look for and where are the horns?


Horns are behind the grill. Check power with a test light connected to ground and have someone press the horn. If no power on either terminal then you may have a bad clock spring or disconnected horn wire in the steering wheel. This means removing the airbag which is best left to a mechanic.

1999 Durango 5.9 horn doesn't work from steering wheel but does when setting the factory car alarm. (I assume it's the same horn.)


If it is the same horn, there is probably something in the area where you push to activate the horn. The horn itself is obviously working so there is no fuse problems, most likely your problem is in the steering wheel.

Horn cover


it takes a special puller to remove the steering wheel. the air bag just pops out with a release tool in the release hole on the side of the steering wheel
