SOURCE: Horn went off when no

The horn contact is embedded in the outer horn pad
The change in the climate eventually shrinks the pad and the horn will go off by itself
Replace the horn pad is all that can be done

When I start the car and put it into drive the horn goes on, when I shut the car off the horn sounds! wont go off until I disconnect the battery


You could pull the horn fuse, that should kill it. The horn fuse is hot all the time. Two possibilities, one is security system, the other is problem with horn switch or wiring in the steering column.
The horn switch is ground for the control side of horn relay. Part of key fob security horn beep, is also a ground wire. In the diagram, you can see the two wires, The one for fob, take it loose, see if that stops the horn sounding by accident. Don't leave any live wires hanging loose, use electrical tape or something to insulate. I don't know if taking that one wire loose will cause any problems or not, I guess you can try it and see?
Of course, you still want the horn switch to work normally.

How to fix horn


Id start by checking your fuses, find a fuse relay chart to make it easier finding what fuse is exactly for your horn, check the wiring attached to the fuse too make sure its in those cheap clips properly.

My jeep just started blaring its horn in my driveway. No one was near it and the horn is not beep-beep-beep like the panic indicator--it is full out psycho blaring. I unhooked the battery however that is...


It is likely the button in the steering wheel has shorted out. Unless you can get it to stop by pulling up the button, the steering wheel will have to come off for repair; and this requires special tools. In the meantime, you can pull the horn relay out of the fuse box and reconnect the battery.

The Horn wont stop beeping so I took the fuse out now my battery dying every morning.


Most vehicles have relays to run different things and in most cases the relay gets power before the fuse so if you pulled the fuse the relay is more than likely still getting power. It may be that you just have a bad relay. You can also find the horn itself and simply un plug the power supply wire going to it.

Have you checked your Fuses sometimes if one blows it could cause the car not to start depending on the fuse.

You probably need a new brake switch. In addition to turning the brake lights on and off, it also allows you to move out of "park" since you can only shift with your foot on the brake. The switch is up in the drivers footwell and has a button on it that is controlled by the brake pedal itself. Check your fuses before you get a new switch.
