Expensive Horn problem

I have a 98 Dodge Caravan and the horn stopped working. The repairman said it would cost $700.00 for a new sensor, does this sound right?

Call your local dealer with the vehicle id number. it may be caused by a bad clockspring which could be covered under a recall that would make it free for you

Horn not working on 98 dodge caravan


It could be the fuse that has blown. Please check the fuse box under the hood for any blown fuses. Replace if found blown. Second reason could be the maladjusted contact points. They have to be so adjusted that the come in contact when you press the horn button or whatever your car has. Third reason could be the wires have broken. Please check the wire from the battery onwards to the horn switch to the horn.

Our horn doesn't work on our '98 dodge grand caravan. can we fix ourselves? what are cost estimates to fix?


If you have a 12 volt test light you can pull the wire off the horn and hook one end of the test light to ground and the other to the wire for the horn then have someone press the horn button down if the light comes on then the wireing system is ok and it's the horn froze up, if it does not come on try replaceing the horn relay with a relay that is the same I believe the head light and AC relay are the same so try switching and see if the light comes on, if not and you have checked the fuse for the horn then it may be in the steering wheel where the problem is. You can test the horn by applying a wire to the positive side of the battery and touching it to the horn spade connector, if it beeps then you know it's ok and you have a problem in the steering wheel. I will stop at this point because working on the steering wheel can be dangrous unless you unplug the battery first, the reason is you could set off the air bag by accident and this would take another page of instructions to do it safely, if the air bag blows it can kill you. Hope this helps and get back to me if these test prove that the horn is good and you need to check the steering wheel assembly. Thanks for using fixya.

My horn hasn't worked in over 8 months and now all of a sudden when I'm driving it just keeps honking and won't stop on my 1999 dodge caravan


This sounds like a bad horn relay or the horn pads is bad,i would start by disconnecting the horn pad,caution with airbag,but if you remove the steering wheel cover and dissconnect horn button wires and then drive if horn still blows then you havea bad relay, if it doesnt blow anymore then the pad is bad ,

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.
