SOURCE: steering wheel horn button not working 98 gulf

you need to find the wire connected to the horn of the vehicle and follow it back to through the firewall and make sure that it is connected to the horn itself. If not you will need to run another one. Also check the fuses

AFTER SWITCHING RELAYS, HORN CONTINUES TO GO OFF. HOW TO FIX THIS AND FINISH FUSE RELAY WITH CAR?


The relay is powered at all times . In order to sound the horn the ground side of the relay needs to be grounded. It is grounded to the steering column through the horn button . In other words the horn button wire has been grounded to the steering column. Remove the steering wheel (requires a puller) and remove the locking plate, under the lock plate is a disc or cam, something in there is damaged maybe a wire with a spring, or the cam. Good luck.

What wire ( yellow or blue ) powers the horn on a 1981 Ford F-150


The horn button supplies a ground to the horn relay.Start by pulling the plug at the base of the column,see if you can get a ground on one of the pins from the column when you pus the button.Or find the horn relay,and do the same test from there.You should find 12v on one on the relay socket pins,a ground on one(this will be the wire to the horn)and a ground on the 3rd pin when you press the horn button.

The horn activates by itself at any time , changed horn relay already same thing


It is likely the horn button on your steering wheel is broken inside or the wire is shorting to the steering column. You would have to remove the airbag to fix this problem. If your horn button is on the airbag, you may have to replace the airbag.

I have a 63 Ford T-Bird that I can't get the horn to work. I have checked the wires and the grounds and they look good. The horns work when I tested them also but when I put the steering column together...


You missed something putting the column back together. IDK the design of the wheel, but if all the wires to the column are good, I'd look at the switch itself in the column. Probably not making contact.

Hi,

As in most electrical problems, it would be required to do a bit of tracing/diagnosis to determine which is at fault. Most automotive horn system works on the same basic design. A switch in the steering wheel that energizes the horn relay that in turn powers the horn(s). A self activating horn could be caused by:
1: intermittent short in the steering wheel horn button;
2. intermittent shorting out horn relay;
3. intermittent short in the wiring.

Basing on the above possibilities, diagnostic/corrective action would involve:
a. tapping on the steering wheel (not the horn button) to see if jarring it would activate the horn, if yes then the problem is with the horn switch and often cleaning the inside/contact points of the switch should be corrective;
b. tapping the horn relay with the handle of a screwdriver to determine if jarring it would activate the horn, if yes then the problem is with the horn relay which of course would need replacement;
c. the wiring would be a bit more complicated if not time consuming. It would be necessary to wiggle the wires coming from the steering wheel/column to the main harness, to the fuse/relay bank finally to the horn to check at which point the trouble would resurface. Taping any exposed/bare/scraped wire would be corrective. It should be noted that the steering horn switch often would be "to ground" meaning the horn switch is switching the horn relay by providing the negative path, the relay is constantly supplied with B+12.

There are some instances that the horn could also activated by an alarm system.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
