Does your vehicle have an airbag in it? (SEE WARNING BELOW)
If so, you have to let the vehicle sit (no key in ignition!) for AT LEAST 30 minutes to deactivate airbag. Remove the screws from the back of the steering wheel to remove the airbag unit, (once airbag is removed, you should be able to see a little spring and a wire attached to the spring that is a push in and turn setup. That is attached to your horn button and if that is where the short is, fine. If not, you will have to proceed with taking the steering wheel off.) Make sure you make that vehicle sit for as long as possible before removing the airbag. Otherwise, it WILL deploy in your face and set you into the back seat at the very least!!!!!
To be safe, disconnect battery before even attempting to do anything with the steering wheel.

I have a 1998 chrysler concorde. The airbag light on the dash stays on and my horn doesnt work. How do i fix this without costing me tons of money?


Could be a wiring problem or the clockspring in the steering column.
You would need to pull the steering wheel and test the circuits.

The horn on my 02 Odyssey will not blow. I've checked the fuse and relay but they were both good. I believe the horn ring or the contact may be broken. How do you get the steering wheel off?


Before you pull the wheel (which involves removing the air bag unit) you can test the horn switch at its connector with the cable reel (newfangled horn ring). First remove the dashboard lower cover under the steering column. Remove the steering column upper and lower covers. Disconnect the dashboard wire harness connector (4 pins) from the cable reel. Check for continuity between the cable reel no.2 terminal (light green/blue stripe wire) and body ground in each horn switch position. There should be continuity when horn is pushed and no continuity when horn is released. If one or both continuity checks fail, then you'll have to remove the airbag and change out the cable reel.

The horn on my 2006 Nissan Murano works only when the steering wheel is turned either direction, even if only a few degrees. When the steering is centered or near centered it does not work.


Its a short in the wiring.Its a wiring issue.You'd need to take of the covers above and below the steering wheel. Just get the horn wiring removed and reconnected.If its getting disconnected at when you center the steering wheel then the wire has to be connected. The horn contacts in the steering wheel became corroded. This is a common issue caused in many cars.The horn connections become lose or get pulled out due to loose.so removing the horn connections/cleaning and reconnecting the connection helps.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Where is the horn relay located on a lincoln 2002 ls v8. horn blows where alarm is press...but it will not work when i press the horn button insided the car?


If the alarm makes the horn work, then it is not the relay.
It is the horn contact or slip ring.
You need to take the cover off the steering wheel center.
But this could be dangerous due to air bags.
Disconnect battery first.
Steering wheel might have to come off.
Recommend a shop because most people don't have the tools for pulling steering wheel.

I have a 87 blazer s10... the turnswitch /wiper/highbeam switch is broken and is shorting out my brakelights ..i cant seem to get to it.. took the steering weel off but ..?


Unfortunately there are some special tools required you will need to get to the turn-signal switch. Below is the procedure for replacing the turn-signal switch. Generally you can rent the puller from a local auto parts jobber or you can purchase one.
Good luck, let me know how it goes.
Regards,

Many vehicles use a turn signal switch that is separate from the multifunction switch. The steering wheel will have to be removed to gain access to the turn signal switch on these vehicles. The following procedure is a common method of turn signal switch replacement:
  • Place the fender covers on the fenders.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Remove the steering column trim.
  • Remove the horn pad from the steering wheel.

  • Remove the steering wheel and horn collar.
  • Use a suitable puller to remove the steering wheel.
  • With a suitable compressor, compress the preload spring to the lock plate. Compress the spring only enough to remove the snap ring.

  • Use a pick and a small flat blade screwdriver to remove the snap ring.
  • Remove the lock plate, horn contact carrier, and spring.
  • Remove the bolts at the upper steering column support and the upper mounting bracket from the column.
  • Disconnect the turn signal wiring connector.
  • Wrap tape around the wire and connector.
  • Remove the hazard warning knob from the column.
  • Remove the switch retaining screws and remove the switch.

Horn/lights on 2002 Toyota Tacoma


Rewire your horn from the steering wheel to the horn. Its not difficult, I can't tell you how to take the steering wheel apart but you can get a Haynes Repair Manual. It'll have all you need and more. You can use speaker wire, split it in two. Run one cable from the positive in the battery to the horn switch in the steering wheel. Another from the switch to the horn. You have a short somewhere, to me is easier just to run new wires than to find the short-circuit. Make sure when you run the cables through the firewall you run through a grommet so it does not get damaged by metal. Before anything check your headlight wires that they are not touching the horn.

You have a shorted clockspring, or horn contact reel if you prefer. It is located under the horn pad in the steering wheel and is either a coiled up flat wire or some kind of rotary contact.

Where the steering wheel can be turned several turns, there is no way a normal wire could be used for the horn button, so they use either form of rotary contact.

They are prone to failure, airbags use the same system (airbag computers will detect this and shut the system off so accidental deployment is impossible).

You can take the horn pad off (usually there are a couple of screws holding it in from the bottom of the steering wheel, or sometimes if there are no screws, the horn pad is clipped in and you need to gently pry it off. After you remove the horn pad, you should be able to get a good idea on what's going on...)

If it is a clockspring, it is probably shorted and cannot really be repaired. It must be replaced. If it is some kind of other system, repairs might be possible depending on the setup.
