08 Scion xD release series my horn honks by itself when I turn or if you pull on top of steering wheel what is causing this and could it possibly cause my air bag to go off


Inside the steering wheel the button for the horn has springs that can break or become weak when turning the weight of the air bag causes it to make contact and honk. The air bag will not deploy because of this but if you are planning to repair it be sure to disconnect the battery completely and wait ten minutes before attempting to disassemble the steering wheel. Failure to do this can cause the airbag to deploy possibility causing injury to yourself

None of the things on the steering wheel work. no horn cruise control, radio ect


Is the air bag light on? Most likely a clock spring failure. Located in behind the steering wheel. Have a pro look at it as this spring assembly needs to be installed/timed properly and can cause premature air bag deployment if not repaired properly

I have a 1995 ford crown victoria lx. Had to remove horn relay due to horn started blowing when I would turn. How can I fix this problem cause I really need my horn


It's usually the contacts in the steering wheel behind the horn and air bag. You will have to remove the air bag to access the horn contacts. Make sure you remove the battery terminals from the battery before working on any air bag system! You may have to pull the steering wheel completely, depending on the setup. You can rent the puller from your local parts store. If you can not adjust the wires/contacts for the horn, you may have to buy a new set. Fairly inexpensive, but they may have to order the part, in which you will have to put everything back together until the part comes in, and then start back over. I was able to access mine in my Crown Victoria by just removing the air bag, hopefully it's the same. Hope this helps!

Remove steering column


why not say reason.. ??? is the actual shaft bad,
or just swapping out the whole thing.> with igntion switch and combo switch?
the whole inside parts?
are you removing the steering wheel ?

first hard part is air bags, very dangerous.
and the coil spring, in wheel hub. easy to damage that.
first off major work , you need the FSM. why not get it and read it.

if no bags , good. easier.
the other issue is the
there are 3 critical steps.
1: Bags.
2: ignition switch assy, anthieft screws.
3: collapsible shaft, possible damage.
4: the steering wheel puller and steps. the FSM covers each separately.

wheel. quote
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and disable the air bag system.
  2. Set the front tires in a straight-ahead position.

  1. Remove the air bag module retaining nuts from behind the steering wheel.
  2. Remove the air bag module. Defeated first !!!!
  3. If equipped, remove the cruise control switch.
  4. Disconnect the horn wiring.
  5. Remove the steering wheel retaining nut.
  6. Scribe a line mark on the steering wheel and steering shaft if there is not one already.
  7. Remove the steering wheel using a suitable puller.
  8. the palm smacking trick can get the wheel off if lucky.
To install:
  1. To install, align the scribe marks on the steering shaft with the steering wheel.
  2. Ensure the wheel compresses the 2 locktabs on the clockspring.
  3. Pull the air bag and if equipped, cruise control wires through the larger hole and horn wire through the smaller hole. Ensure they are not pinched.
  4. Install the steering wheel nut and tighten it to 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm) while forcing the steering wheel down the shaft with the nut.
  5. Connect the wire feed to the horn buttons.
  6. Connect the feed wires and tighten the air bag retaining nuts to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm). Ensure the air bag is completely seated. The latching clip arms must be visible on top of the connector housing on the module.
  7. Enable the air bag system and connect the battery cable.
  8. From the right side of the vehicle (in case of accidental deployment), turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  9. Check for proper air bag warning light operation.
end quote, get the FSM. there are many more pages, for
the COMBO section, and shaft.

Air bag light on no horn 2002 suzuki xl7


Most vehicles have a "clock spring" behind the horn button area on the steering wheel. The clock spring has nothing to do with clocks and inst really a spring. It's a flat coil of wiring that is would around in a circle and connected to a stationary item in the middle of the steering column. The outer end of the coil is allowed to move around (coil and uncoil) as the steering wheel is turned. The clock spring typically supplies power to the horn and to the airbag. This is a relatively simple fix, but unless you have mechanical experience, this is a repair I would leave to a mechanic. Pulling the steering wheel and the airbag can possibly lead to airbag deployment and injure or kill you.

Just got a 2004 dodge neon the "air bag" light stays on and my horn does not work what can this be


Most likely the clock spring in your steering column. This allows current to pass through for the air bag, horn, and sometimes cruise control and on wheel sound system controls, while the steering wheel is turned. It's easy enough to change, but you MUST follow the directions in the manual, as accidental airbag deployment can certainly be fatal. If you don't have access to a steering wheel puller, and are not entirely comfortable with the suplemental inflatable restraint system, leave it to a pro.
