Question about 1998 Toyota 4Runner
The horn for my 98 4Runner quit working. The fuse is good but I don't want to remove the steering wheel to check the spring because of the airbag. What are my other options?
Have you cheked if the horn itself is well grounded, it could be that the screw hoding is lose.

These problems are all due to a defective rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel thios part connects the airbag and horn and cruise to the wiring harness. This part is called the clock-spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airbag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1/2 hour prior.
