This is usually caused by crossed wires in your steering column........most cars run the ignition, lights, blinker wiring all together inside the steering column. They are often all tangled up together......any weakness in a wires plastic covering allows the signals to jump from one wire to another.

I just replaced my turn signal switch in my 82 not 84 rampage. it works fine but when I replace the steering wheel, the horn honks and won't stop.when I look at the switch, I don't know how it...


I don't have a diagram, but if I understand what you're saying, there is a copper ring at the top of the steering column, visible before you install the steering wheel. The copper pin is connected to the horn button. The intent being that when you press the horn button, it completes the ground from the steering wheel through the horn button, through the pin, to the copper ring.
If this is correct, there should be no contact between the steering wheel and the copper ring other than the pin. Check to see if there may have been a spacer (washer, etc) below the steering wheel on the steering shaft that holds it just far enough away from the copper ring so that only the copper pin makes contact.

The horn on my 93 ford fairmont has started to come on and go off by itself what is the likely problem ?


This can be related to two issues.
1. The HORN RELAY is faulty and so it latches on erractically.
2. The horn switch is triggering by its own and so activates.
finally check the wires from the horn to see if the return ground wire is leaking or to short from a worn wire and thus trigger the horn.

Where can I find my honk sensor in a 2006 Ford Focus? or How to fix my honk in a 2006 Ford focus? The honk is not working?


I believe there are 2 wires to the horn. One is power all the time, and the other is ground through the steering column wire to the horn button on the steering wheel, when it grounds out when pushed.
If it is a single wire to the horn, then there is a relay.

1992 Dodge Ram 50: Horn honks all by itself.


Check the horn actuating contact at the centre of the steering wheel. It may be damaged or mis-aligned.
Also check the carbon contact that runs on the slip ring under the steering wheel (associated with steering wheel horn actuate switch) It may be damaged or mis-aligned.

If none of the above are faulty, you should look for a possible intermittent short to ground on the horn actuation control wiring.

Horn wont stop


sounds like the horn contact terminal inside the steering wheel got disconnected and is hitting a metal part of the steering column which triggers the horn. the terminal that got disconnected is probably has positive polarity and the metal part of the steering column has negative polarity. If they come in contact with each other... *honk* *honk*

Horn doesn't honk


check fuse for horn, if that's ok.

run power wire straight to the horn from battery to test if horn is working,

if that works>> you will have to take cover off steering wheel and check wire hasnt come loose there.


good luck, hope you get it working
