I have a 1966 chevy impala and recently installed a billet specialties steering wheel. I am tring to get the horn to work. I tested it and the horn itself does work and i know i need a GM horn wire. My question is, after i get the horn wire, how do I hook it up to make the horn work. Do I need to run a wire through the steering column?

Most the time on the billet steering wheels you have to put a push button horn. if you ran a wire through column it would spin wire and eventually break it..

My horn isn't working on a Chevy equinox but it's a new horn. What could be wrong with it..and my cruise control don't qork. Is it my steering wheel?


Was Cruise Control working before the New Horn was installed? The power supply to the Horn, (input to ground wire) is connected to the Cruise Control Module (CCM). This CCM is wired to the Relay Switch Box located in the Engine Bay. The Relay Box cover will have a Chart indicating what function each Relay coresponds to. Your local autoparts store (AutoZone) can test the Relay Switch, and you'll know (if any Relay) need to be replaced.

The CCM is also wired to the Steering Wheel, but first passes through the Clock Spring Coil, located just behind the Steering Wheel. The Clock Spring allowes for the Function Buttons on the Steering Wheel to have power while Steering Wheel spins.

The Clock Spring can malfunction or break, its rare, but this will cut power to the Function Buttons on Steering Wheel. If ALL the buttons on Steering Wheel dont work, then the Clock Spring is the Culprit. The Coil may need to be replaced.

The Cruise Control Module itself may have failed and also would cause a few or all Steering Wheel Functions to quit working.

But first check the Relay Switch Box and examine the Harness Cables connecting (Steering Wheel--to--CCM--to--Relay Switch Box--to--Battery Supply).

Also if Cruise Control was working before the new Horn was installed and now not working, then most likely the Problem is a bad wire connection somewhere and/or is a faulty Relay.

My 2012 Chevy Impala that I recently bought from a dealership does not have a working. It doesn't work if I press my horn button on my steering wheel or the panic button on my key fob. Any ideas? Thank...


if you bought it with any warranty go back to the dealer you bought it from. if you push on the horn pad and you hear a click noise then the chances are the horn itself is bad. a horn must work to pass a safety. it could also be a BCM problem.

2002 impala the audio controls on the steering wheel stopped working


it could be your clockspring; it carries multiple electrical signals to and from the steering wheel (audio controls, horn, airbag). the wheel has to be removed to gain access to it for replacement, but it can be tested without removal. the easiest way to test it is with a diagnostic tool

How do i remove the turn signal switch on a 2001 chevy impala


Removal & Installataion
  1. Verify that the multifunction turn signal lever is in the center of the OFF position.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Disable the SIR (air bag) system. Refer to the Chassis Electrical Section.
  4. Remove the air bag module from the steering wheel.
  5. Remove the steering wheel.
  • Remove the upper and lower steering wheel trim covers using the following procedure.
    • Remove the tilt lever assembly.
    • Remove the two pan head tapping screws from the lower shroud.
    • Unlock the upper and lower shroud.
    • Remove the two Torx® head screws from the upper shroud.
    • Remove the upper shroud.
  • Remove the wire harness straps from the wire harness assembly and detach the wiring harness connectors from the switch side connectors.
  • Remove the two multifunction turn signal switch screws and remove the multifunction switch assembly from the vehicle.
  • To install:
    1. Install the multifunction switch to the steering column. Use a small flat-blade prytool to compress the electrical contact and move the multifunction turn signal switch into position. Verify that the electrical contact rests on the canceling cam. Install the screws and tighten to 62 inch lbs. (7 Nm).
    2. Route the wire harness along the steering column jacket assembly and secure into the wire harness strap. Install a new wire tie to the upper tilt head assembly and another lower along the wiring harness, as the original installation.
    3. Verify that the lever is in the center of the OFF position.
    4. Install the upper and lower steering column shrouds.
    5. Route the SIR connector through the steering wheel, align the scribe mark on the steering wheel made at removal, with the slash mark on the steering shaft and install the steering wheel. Install the steering shaft nut and torque to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
    6. Install the horn contact leads and the air bag connector to the back of the air bag. Make sure the CPA wedge is in place to secure the connector. Install the air bag by gently pushing on both the right and left sides of the air bag until the retaining springs engage.
    7. Enable the SIR system by connecting the yellow 2-way connector at the base of the steering column and installing the air bag fuse.
    8. Connect the negative battery cable. Test the horn, turn signals and headlight operation.

    first test for power at the horn using a test light if no power then its not the horn check the fuse if fuse is good your problem can only be the clock spring which is located underneath the steering wheel,remove the wheel and its right there replace it and you will have horn power again.
