Question about Hyundai Santa Fe
2004 Hyundai Trajet, Petrol
Horn not working. Local Mechanic has checked out Switch, Fuses, Relays & Horn itself - All functioning fine.
The problem appears to be a break in the circuit between the Steering wheel and the relay. This could be located in the Steering wheel column (above the ring) or beyond (below the ring). Both parts are €100 plus VAT to replace.
Can any advice be provided ? Any easier solution ?. I do not want to install a separate circuit with switch.
Thanks in advance.
This problem is caused by the rotating contact under the steering wheel that connects the horn (and airbag) button to the steering column wiring harness, this contact is commonly called the clock-spring ribbon contact. WARNING! Before u replace this u must remove the wheel and the airbag module on the wheel, the airbag must be disarmed, the easiest way is to disconnect the battery 30 minutes prior to starting work, this always ample time for the system control circuit capacitors to drain down.
