    Also, my horn goes off when I open the door(off once the ignition is turned).
    This all happened after I had the rack & pinion replaced.

These vans are known to have faulty clock springs, which can cause the problems. I think there's a recall on them...give your local Chrysler dealer a call.

The horn switch and the air bag and cruise control wiring in the steering wheel go through the clock spring, ford calls it air bag sliding contact. The clock springs have been know to go bad.

Srs light on, horn and cruise won't work


Well it would be helpfull to see what codes are stored in the airbag computer, but its interesting that the horn and cruise arn't working. Maybe before spending the money on having the codes scanned, i would check all the fuses, just incase.

Crusie control does not work on 2011 gmc sierra 1500 and I've already replaced the switch?


If the switch is replaced,then it can be wiring issue or faulty cruise control board.But as the switch is replaced,get the voltage at the switch tested to confirm the switch is actually receiving voltage.If no voltage received at switch power supply wire then ,apply external 12 volt power to the cruise control switch wire and then see if cruise control comes ON.If yes,then you know wiring is issue.

Horn doesn't work,abs light on dash stays on and also cruise control does not work either


Typical reason for no cruise and horn is a bad clock spring underneath the airbag. Typically you have an airbag light on as well and not an abs light

Horn won't stop


if you unplug the clock spring on the back side and the horn will stop then remove the air bag and check the switches and wires inside the steering wheel

Horn does not work when deperess


The caravan horn is a weak one. Locate the horn and disconnect the plug. One wire is hor all the time and it runs off the horn fuse in the undrhood fuse relay panel next to the battery. With a test light verify that the one wire is hot all the time. ( A test light is a tool looks like an ice pick with a clear handle that has a light bulb inside the handle has a wire coming out of it with a clip on the end, connect the clip to a metal ground and anything that electricly powered will light the light bulb in the handle) If it's hot then put the pointer in the other wire ( In the horns plug) and connect the clip of the light to the battery positive, Push the horn button and the light should light, if it does the horn is bad. If not the horn button or the clockspring is bad. The clockspring is the connection beteen the steering whell and the steering collum, It's a coil of ribbon cable that has the wires for the airbag the horn and any buttons for cruise control or radio volume or channels that may be the steering wheel. this cable can break or be overloaded and burn out. Most of the time when they fail the airbag light will be on the the cruise control won't work. The horn button is made into the airbag and seldom fails the fuse is second the horns fail often.

Horn and cruise control dont work, what to do?


It is wires wound around in a circle within a plastic housing called a clockspring. The clockspring lives behind the steering wheel and connects your horn, cruise and most importantly the airbag. Usually it is the airbag that is first to quit with a light on the dash coming on.

Horn on my 1999 Ford Taurus


does your cruise control work? the reason is that there is a what is called a clockspring harness in the sterring wheel under the airbag, if your airbag light is flashing chances are this harness is broke and will need to be replaced,  The airbag, horn, and cruise control all go throught this clockspring harness.

It's the " clock spring " . Dodge has a lifetime recall / replacement on this part. Somehow it controls the air bag and is tied into the horn and cruise control .
