Wires from the horn run down the steering column and pass the area where the shift linkage is also in the column. its either a loose wire, or a chafted wire inside the column. Be VERY careful working on this if you have airbags. they must be disarmed before you work on the column.

Why horn keeps honking when starting 2001 malibu?


The horn works off "Ground". Your horn wire is grounding out somewhere.

Chevy malibu horn won't stop honking


Why not just unplug the horn rather than the battery? One wire plugs into it. The cause could be a number of things. (i.e. Horn button stuck in steering wheel, defective anti-theft system, etc....) This is a tough one to diagnosis.

I have a 2007 ford explorer, when i step on the gas the truck barely goes until i get to about 20-30 mph then it will go faster. So I just went to advanced auto's to get the vehicle scanned and it came...


no real speed until 20 mph indicates your transmission is starting in 2nd gear. this would be the ab/c solenoid code. try starting off and manually pulling the shift lever down into 1 at approx 15mph bump it to 2 then at 20 25 bump to drive, if trans shifts under these conditions, you do have a bad solenoid, some solenoids can be replaced just by removing trans pan, without removing valve body.

Car stuck in park after pulling "stop horn" fuse on 07 Honda Civic. Horn was honking after jump starting it.


You will need to replace that "stop horn" fuse since it also feeds power to the stop lamps and the gear shifter solenoid, when you step on the brake pedal. Your best bet is to unplug the horn on the vehicle(to stop it from honking) until you can get it fixed. That way, you will be able to shift out of park to get it to a shop for repairs.

1992 Dodge Ram 50: Horn honks all by itself.


Check the horn actuating contact at the centre of the steering wheel. It may be damaged or mis-aligned.
Also check the carbon contact that runs on the slip ring under the steering wheel (associated with steering wheel horn actuate switch) It may be damaged or mis-aligned.

If none of the above are faulty, you should look for a possible intermittent short to ground on the horn actuation control wiring.

Broken Horn won't *******- 2003 Chevrolet Malibu


Hi. If your airbag has not deployed, you don't have to replace it. The airbag may have to be removed to get at the horn circuit. Try taking it to an independent auto repair place. I'll be willing to bet that they'll give you a better price for the repair. Good luck! ricardok45
