Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Horn goes off by itself

My 05 jeep grand cherokee's horn started randomly going off - I had to get the horn pad replace.  It is in the steering column. - a $300 job.  I did get two estimates and they were both about the same. The shop that did it had a hard time getting the part as it was backordered from Jeep. Now it is back at the shop becuase now when you press the unlock button on the key it sets the horn off!  I am trying to find out if  there was a recall  for this?

Go to the Menu in your Jeep. There is a question that asks you if you want the horn to sound when you unlock/lock the doors. You need to hit the Step button so that there is a "N" instead of a "Y" and this should stop the horn from going off

05 grand Cherokee horn goes off by itself while driving


its broken, that assembly.
the FSM covers this 100%
1: PULL NEG BATTER LUG, and wait for 5minutes min. for caps to discharge in systems. especially the next.
2: DEFEAT AIR BAGS OR DIE.
3: and the steps stated. Body chapter, page 156./

gain acess to the combo switch, find the part that is loose
correct that, and find the short to the horn
try to do so and not damage the clock spring,
working this area of any car, FSM free, is asking for trouble.
danger
and very expensive broken parts by not following procedures to the letter.

My horn blows when i make left turns. what is going on


The horn pad or the clock spring in the steering column is shorting to ground. The clock spring is the device that allows contacts in the steering wheel to move in circles.

How do you troubleshoot the horn


if your horns work with alarm using remote, then fuse and relay good if you hear no horn using remote set off alarm,and horn pad dont work, replace horn fuse and relay, if both okay, you have to replace the whole horn pad with air bag in steering wheel both horn control pads and airbag is one assembly.

My 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee is having a problem where the horn will not stop blaring. The fuse is good, as well as the horn relay.


The problem is caused by the Airbag Module that contains the Horn button contacts is warped from heat, this causes the horn to sound, you must replace the Airbag on the steering wheel to correct this, Refer to disarming instructions for the Airbag, it can be very dangerous as it is an explosive device.

I have a '93 jeep cherokee and my horn doesn't work. I've checked the fuse and it's fine but now i don't know where to locate the horn itself to check for disconnections or to replace...


LOOK UNDER THE LOWER AIR DEFLECTOR FROM BELOW THE RADIATOR. IF YOU HOT WIRE CAR HORN AND IT WORKS.YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE WHOLE AIRBAG IN STEERING WITH HORN CONTROL BUTTONS.YOU NEED TO DISABLE AIRBAG IN STEERING WHEEL WHEN REPLACING AIRBAG AND HORN CONTROL BUTTON PAD.JUST TURN OFF RADIO FIRST, THEN DISCONNECT REMOVE THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.WAIT 20 MINUTES BEFORE WORKING ON AIRBAG AND HORN PAD IN THE STEERING WHEEL.

I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee, and recently the air bag light chimes on and off randomly when driving. Also, the horn has stopped working


need to replace clock spring which is located under steering wheel airbag, if you are going to carry out repair disconnect battery and leave for at least 5 mins then you can strip down steering wheel safely without possible airbag going off, but you will need a steering wheel pulling tool and the rest is quite straight forward

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee horn works sometimes and doesn't work at other times


You will find the problem in one of three places...Either the horn contacts inside the steering wheel are bad, the relay is sticking or the horn itself has failed or is failing. All give similar symptoms.

Horn doesn't work on 98 jeep cherokee.


MOST LIKELY THE CLOCK SPRING ROTATING CONTACT UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL IS DEFECTIVE/OPEN.

No horn in '94 Jeep Grand Cherokee


go to the horn under your hood, check it for any thing wrong, then follow the power wire and follow it back to your steering wheal. this is where your problem is you just have to find out where the short is. and fix it.
