Most likely it is the clockspring. The wheel and air bag have to be pulled off to replace. The wiring breaks within the clockspring causing the horn not to work and the cruise control on the steering wheel not to work. You can replace this your-self for about $100 as someone posted above but why. Check the recalls on your paticular veh. I replaced mine my self the first time and it went out about 6 years later. I found out that my vehicle was on the recall list for this part. The second time around I let the dealership pay for the part and labor.

Call the dealer to see if this is covered for free under recall! Most are! Hope this helps anyone who reads this!

I had the same problem a year ago with the only difference that the cruise control did not work either,and the ABS light was on all the time.The solution was to replace the clockspring assembly located in the steering wheel under the airbag but be sure to disconect the power from the battery to avoid the airbag from inflating by accident.The replacement part is about $100 and you have to rent a puller to extract the steering wheel.

The horn on my van dose not work i check the fuse and the relay and they are ok.


Use a voltmeter at the horn connections. If it shows 12 volts DC when someone
presses the horn button for you, it means the horn is bad. If voltage isn't getting to the
horn and the fuses are good, you may have a broken wire or bad ground at the horn, if it
is wired to ground at the horns frame.

I have a dodge gran caravan 3.3 engine and the horn does not work


Only one wire?? then its a ground wire, grounds a relay to energize the horn, disconnect the horn and see if you have voltage to it , if not it could be the relay, steering column not grounding, or a bad wire.

check under the hood in the fuse/relay box for a blown fuse or relay. also there is another fuse panel under the dash next to the steering column. when u take the cover off the fuse/relay box under the hood look inside the lid and it will tell u which fuse/relay controls the cruise/horn/etc. hope this will help you!!!!

1998 Dodge Caravan Sport Horn will not work.


Check the switch on the steering wheel for damage. if the switch is ok, move on to the fuse. replace the fuse if it is damaged.

Now, if the horn switch and fuse are ok and, the wiring in between the horn switch and actual horn is intact, replace the horn.

Horn inop 2003 grand caravan


Yes, it sounds like the connector on the horn could have been accidentally unplugged while the work was being done.

The horn is under the hood very near the front grill on left or right side.

Horn just went out


sounds like you have a bad horn or a wire has come off the horns can you feel the relay click when you press the horn inside the car? 

the horns (two) on cars are usually located forward of the radiator and behind the grill.  Sometimes they are better reached from below the car.  And usually you need to remove some plastic shield to get to them.  The fuse is in the fuse box and should be marked as is the horn relay.

When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect.  If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply.  Thank you.

Horn blows randomly - like I'm in a wedding. Car can be on or off


it seems i say this way to often but it sounds like a relay. locate the horn relay, likely located in the engine compartment fuse panel near the battery and replace it.
