98 Toyota 4Runner Horn malfunction

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?

My horn quit working and airbag light came on after replacing starter and ignition switch. Help!! I have a 2001 dodge neon


I'm sorry but you may broke the clock spring connection from the column to the steering wheel.First make sure all the wire are connected under the dash after you work on ignition switch.
for clock spring disconnect the battery for 10 min.to discharge the SRS system.
turn the wheels and steering straight.
remove the airbag and store in safe place
remove the steering wheel
remove column cover
disconnect the clock spring and remove
installation in reverse order
the new clock spring have yellow lock tab. after removing the tab DO NOT turn the spring. the wire inside have limit of 2 1/2 turns each way.
good luck

How to install clock spring


Not recomended for untrained people as airbags can be very dangerous. That said you need to. 1) disconect battry 2) remove SRS (Airbag fuse) 3) remove shroud around steering colum 4) wait ten minutes. 5) remove horn pad (airbag houseing) usualy held in by tamper proof bits from back of steering wheel. 6) unplug wires to airbag & horn 7) undo steering wheel bolt & mark position of steering wheel to colum splines. 8) remove steering wheel with suitable puller (NOT a hammer) 9) unclip clock spring & replace 10) reverse procedure

Horn just quit working.


Do you get a click when you press the button? The relay should be audibly clicking if it's working.
If it is clicking then I'd check the horn itself, might be bad or have loose connection. If no clicking sound at all then I'd suspect bad relay or fuse (if it has a dedicated one), also possibly bad switch.

REMOVE HOTWIRE HORN OR PRESS REMOTE BUTTON LOCK CAR DOORS IF YOU HEAR CAR HORN BLOWS WHEN ACTIVATE CAR ALARM. HORN WORKING.MORE LIKELY THE AIRBAG AND HORN PAD NEED REPLACING.IF YOU GOING TO FIX. DISABLE AIRBAG IN THE STEERING WHEEL BEFORE REPLACING THE AIRBAG AND HORN PAD. TURN OFF RADIO.THEN DISCONNECT NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE FOR 20 MINUTES BEFORE REMOVING AIRBAG IN STEERING WHEEL.THAT HORN PAD WITH AIRBAG IS NOT GOING TO BE CHEAP.

Air bag light on in dash cruise control quit working and horn also quit working all three things at the same time


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.

Horn does not work


THE HORN MAY BE BAD. HORN FAIL FROM AGE & LONG PERIODS OF NON USE. TRY PUTTING BATTERY POWER RIGHT TO THE HORN. IF NO SOUND OR VERY POOR RESPONSE, GET A NEW HORN. IF IT SOUNDS LIKE A HORN, CHECK THE HORN FUSE WITH A TESTER, " THERE SHOULD BE POWER ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FUSE. IF THE FUSE IS GOOD, PULL THE STEERING WHEEL, THERE MAY BE A WORN BRASS CONTACT STICKING UP. PUT A WIRE FROM THAT CONTACT TO SOME METAL UNDER THE DASH, IF THE HORN WORKS YOU WILL HAVE TO WORK ON THAT CONTACT OR MAYBE THE HORN BUTTON ON THE STEERING WHEEL
