Question about 2003 Volkswagen Golf
The horn on my 03 golf tdi blows, for about a second or so, occasionally, when I close any of the doors. I tried closing each of the doors gently and aggressively; it appears to be completely random. Sometimes, I can go days without it going off; sometimes, it happens twice within the hour.
One time, upon closing the driver side door, it blew for about 15 seconds, non-stop, and the neighbors came out to see what was going on. If I recall correctly, it even went off once when I shut the hatch.
Any ideas what could be causing this?
Horns have constant power all the time so when you press the horn button, all you are doing is grounding the circuit and that makes the horn blow. Usually what happens is that a spring breaks underneath where the horn button is or something allows the horn button to ground out somewhere, possibly even through the inside of the steering column.
