Check the Horn Relay (in fuse box under the hood). You will need to check for Circuit continuity between the Relay and the horn button. There must be a loose connection under the dashboard or in steering column. Pressing the Horn button Grounds the circuit, so check the circuit from the relay to the horn button for continuity to ground.
It sounds like it's possibly an incompatability with options between the old and new components. Does your van have the security feature on it? If so, you may need to ensure that your replacement steering column comes from a vehicle that also had the security feature on it. Sounds a bit lame, but these things are so inter-wired with various components that replacing parts without the same options on it simply won't work.
Probably your horn cam in column, this can be checked and diagnoist easily, I believe it is a dark green wire that comes down the steering col. wire harness. If you grd. this wire horn should blow, how it works is when you push on the horn pad it grounds the circuit to relay and relay switches and puts power to horn to blow.Also make sure your steering column is grounded, which is usually through the rag joint to steering shaft
The horn relay should be in the power distribution center, under the hood, close to the battery. It is rectangular black box. Oh, it sounds as if your clock spring is broken inside the steering column.
Your problem is most likely a defective clockspring assembly. This is also called "spiral cable assembly" it is located just under the steering wheel on the steering column and makes the connection between the main wiring harness and the circuits for the air bag and the horn. I cannot give you wire colors because your question did not mention year, make, model, engine size or whether the vehicle is equipped with cruise control or not. (cruise control makes a difference in the clockspring assembly used on your car.)
Anyway, the air bag and steering wheel has to be removed to fix it.
You missed something putting the column back together. IDK the design of the wheel, but if all the wires to the column are good, I'd look at the switch itself in the column. Probably not making contact.
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!!!!
hey guys with problems with the air bag lights on and horn not working in Chrysler Voyager...
this is the problem with the steering wheel clockwork spring. The connector that brings the wires from the steering wheel instruments (hord, airbag, cruise control) and takes it through the steering column to the car body but allows steering wheel to rotate without breaking the wires. The dealer should have adivised you that there is a life long warrantly from manufacturer of this part. There was a recall notice issued by Chrysler in 2003/4 to bring in car for replacement of part if the Airbag light came on. I got mine done last year under the recall.
