Power steering stiff and jumpy...when the weel is turned hard either way the engine belts actually slip and the alternator stops charging. Is my power steering pump burned out ?


I would change the belt first. Power steering is required for all turning but does get a little more usage during hard turns. You will want to check the fluid levels of the power steering pump as well.

Odometer won't work unless headlights turned off, radio lights dim, blinker won't blink all the time now battery light comes on but battery tests good. Intermittent issues getting worse. Horn


You probably have a bad ground in the electronic instrument cluster, or cluster connection to wiring harness. I would recomend you have a qualified auto tech diagnose it. It is not a easy fix.

Horns not working,original relay 43yrs old !


You hear clicking at horns, and not the relay? Maybe the horns went bad, or maybe you need to check and clean the connections there.
Don\'t know why the cab light went dim, unless the horn wire was trying to make contact?
Yes, TJ, the horn wire should be hot. You are grounding that hot wire when you press for the horn. That hot wire comes from the coil side of the horn relay. Press for horn, it grounds the coil side of relay, and the relay can pass power to the horns.
Now back to the clicking no-honker horns: power gets to the horns when relay is energized, and there has to be a good ground for horns to work. I don\'t know if your horns are case grounded or a wire from horns goes to ground, but check the ground there. If case grounded, pull horns off and clean the ground. Also might try a known good horn. Keep at it, sounds like you are almost there.

My headlights, hazard, turn lights, and my horn does'nt have power. help.


you may have messed up the module your lights are ran in parallel circuits so just in case you loose one light you wont loose both. so my next thing to check would be the control module or the swith. get a test light and check for power at the switch. if you have power their go to the headlights and check power their.

My horn just stopped working on my 88 f-150. everything is still connected to the horn box under the hood. what else could be wrong with it?


Horns die like crazy on these. put power to the horn and make sure it works. The horn button is possible too the clockspring connection at the steering wheel. Find the wire in the harness under the colum that works the horn its black and it's on one end of the connector. with a test light hooked to ground, touch the wire and it should light dimly and the horn relay shough click. if it does the horn is likly or the fuse is blown two wires at the horn one shold be hot all the time and the other becomes grond pushing the horn button if thats good the horn is bad

Gmc pickup when i turned on headlights stereo turned off and headlights quit working checked fuses thats not it.and the horn wont work now


THAT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE THE RADIO CONNECTED WRONG.. REMOVE THE ALL POWER FROM THE BACK OF THE STEREO. AND CHECK AGAIN, ONE OF OR TWO OF THE POWER WIRES TO THE ORIGINAL STEREO ARE FOR DIMMING THE LIGHTS NOT TO BE USED AS A HIGHER AMP OPERATION.

2005 sebring convertible- horn goes off by itself for 30 seconds


FIrst off the horn's ground works through the steering wheel,so the wire is bare or the end is broken and grounding in a place where it should not. You will have to check the wires for the horn from the fuse box up to the wheel.
your power feed to the headlights and the door locks has an open ( the power is not connected somewhere ) Perform a wiggle test turn on the headlights and lift the hood,find the power distribution box and begin to wiggle the wire harness.Sometimes the chrysler fuse box under the hood get loose inside the power distribution box,it will have to be broken down all the way to the heavy wires comming out of hte box,you can tighten these connections your self.

Headlights wont turn on


The sound system was causing to much of an unpredictable power usage on the headlights and the fuse has blown as a safety precaution.
