Horn keeps going off on it's own.


My horn is all set now. I took the steering wheel pad off and put electrical tape around the wires and put it back together. It has been fine sense. Thank God.

Horn no blow


check for blowed fuse or bad relay, you can hook test light to see if horn getting power when you press horn pad if fuse and relay okay,remove horn and hot wire it if it blows, more likely horn pad with airbag in steering wheel bad,if horn pad bad you have to replace whole airbag with with horn pad as a unit.if horn dont blow when hot wired then horn it self is bad.

1998 cadillac, the horn just went off 3am in the morning, would not stop..until I pushed on the steering wheel part of the horn..car was locked..I had to get out of bed to stop it! WHY WOULD IT JUST GO...


I have a 1977 Cadillac Seville and it does the same thing, and when the outside temperature drops below 65 degrees the horn will sound continuously until either the horn relay or the horn fuse is removed.

The problem is in the horn pad on the steering wheel, and the contact plates inside of the horn pad are too close together (a manufacturing defect) and when the temperature drops down to a certain degree then the horn pad will contract and cause the metal contact plates inside of the horn pad to touch and make contact, and it is same thing as if you were pushing on the horn pad.

I have also heard of the exact opposite happening and when the temperature gets too hot the horn pad will expand and cause the metal contact plates to touch and make contact and activating the horn.

I have a lincoln ls and my horn dont work but all the fuses are fine, I bought this car from an individual but I need to get it inspected


Could be bad horn or relay or the horn'button'.Start at the horn with a test light.Have someone push horn button and check for power at the horn.If no power then trace wires to relay,check for power cominginto relay.If power is going in but not out to horn relay is problem.etc. Some horns have a lttle knob you can turn to adjust them and get them working

1996 Chrysler Cirrus horn wouldn't stop beeping too!!!


was it hot outside-heat could deform the steering wheel horn pad and make the horn go off,remove the horn pad and airbag unit(take fuse out for airbag system wait a few mins)then put the fuse that you removed back in place and see if the horn goes off again.

BMW 1988 325 Dashboard orange check light stays on while driving.


The orange light is probably the pads wear indicator showing that the pads are worn out and the cutting out probably you need your car serviced and tune.

Bmw z3 horn why does it not work


Check the fuse, if it is ok check the horn, if there is no power to the horn your rotating contact in your steering wheel may be bad.
