The ground wire that runs into your horn in the pad is grounding itself off somewhere. take the pad off and make sure that the connection to the horn has no cuts in it and it's not touching other metals.

My horn sounds off and won't stop 'til I disconnect battery cable. Why?


sounds like there's a short in your wiring in the steering column, A lot of times with a tilt wheel a wire get loose or gets a short in it. the steering wheel may have to come off to fix the problem but make sure to disconnect the airbag first, I'm not sure what vehicle you have so I don't know where to tell you to look for the connection, may be best to take to a dealership if possible. Hope this helps.

My horn won't work. I've replaced the fuse and the relay. The steering wheel clicks. So what do I do next?


if the steering wheel clicks when you push on the horn then the wiring from the horn pad out to the horn is good.if it clicked before you replaced the parts then you didn`t have to replace them.check the horn at the horn,with someone pushing on the horn pad tap the horn to see if it will try to work if so then the horn needs to be replaced if not then run a power wire from the battery positive to the connector at the horn if the horn works again the horn needs replacing.

I wonder,, with colder tempratures this time of year, If somehow a connection in the horn pad was shorting out.due to expansion or contraction of a component inside the steering wheel. Try tapping on the top of the air bag on the steering wheel and horn buttons ..this may work ..note this is a guess and I hope this does it the only reason I mentioned it Is because I have seen this two other times...Good luck.

Horn doesn't work


Sounds to me like the horn pad has lost the insulation internally,when you turn the wheel the contacts touch.
