    No, no alarm system. the horn just starts blowing. Seems to happen more when it is really cold - like this morning. It will even happen in the middle of the night without the ignition being on.

    No - only the horn.

    I took it to the dealer. They say it's the horn pad.
    for now they have pulled the relay.
    Replacement cost of the horn pad is $340 - think I'll get a stadium horn...

It seems i say this way to often but it sounds like a relay. locate the horn relay, likely located in the engine compartment fuse panel near the battery and replace it.

    Lol.... i would suggest checking at a junk/wrecking/recycling yard for that part.... it's interesting that you may be able to buy the whole steering column for less then it would be for that one part....

2006 Dodge Charger with 136k miles. Horn beeps completely randomly.


There is a short circuit within your steering column and the copper rod that is linked to the horn and the circular strip on steering wheel are now in contact. Remove steering wheel and check there is the spring on the inner part that is either not harnessed well or has broken into pieces and hence the contact.

My horn hasn't worked in over 8 months and now all of a sudden when I'm driving it just keeps honking and won't stop on my 1999 dodge caravan


This sounds like a bad horn relay or the horn pads is bad,i would start by disconnecting the horn pad,caution with airbag,but if you remove the steering wheel cover and dissconnect horn button wires and then drive if horn still blows then you havea bad relay, if it doesnt blow anymore then the pad is bad ,

1998 Dodge Caravan Sport Horn will not work.


Check the switch on the steering wheel for damage. if the switch is ok, move on to the fuse. replace the fuse if it is damaged.

Now, if the horn switch and fuse are ok and, the wiring in between the horn switch and actual horn is intact, replace the horn.

Horn inop 2003 grand caravan


Yes, it sounds like the connector on the horn could have been accidentally unplugged while the work was being done.

The horn is under the hood very near the front grill on left or right side.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Horn Not Working


The most common problem with this is the clockspring, it is located just under the steering wheel. It will cause the horn not to work, airbag light to come on, and the cruise not to work. There is probably a recall on this. Contact a local dealer to see if the recall applies to your car.
