Definitely is in the horn button in the steering wheel. Because of the possibility of Air Bag deployment, this needs to be worked on by a qualified mechanic, Should not be that expensive though.

SOURCE: horn replacment

look under the dash at the fuse panel and locate the relay for the horn... replace it. quick way to tell which one it is is put your finger on each relay as you press the horn... the one that you can feel clicking is the one to replace.

you have a bad horn pad. most likly due to higher temps this time of year, for now you can pull the fuse or relay.

SOURCE: I lost all power to the steering wheel components,

Your issue is most likely the clock spring which is part of the air bag system.

All of the signals controlling these functions are routed through the clock spring.

Should cost around 200-300 to have it done, or more like 100-150 if you do it yourself. You must know what you are doing though as the airbag system is not to be taken lightly.

Where is the horn located?


On the passenger side. You have to remove the lower cover to access them. But before you do that , find the horn relay. pull it and jump the two big pins in the box. If the horn works, it's either the fuse or the part in the steering wheel. Owners manual will tell you where and what fuses and relays are.

the wires are touching inside the horn you must take it apart and put some electrical tape to the wires that are touching and your problem should be fixed.

The button on you steering wheel is the problem, try to open it up and pull the spring just a little bit. I think you have used it too much ;)

My horn won't work. I've replaced the fuse and the relay. The steering wheel clicks. So what do I do next?


if the steering wheel clicks when you push on the horn then the wiring from the horn pad out to the horn is good.if it clicked before you replaced the parts then you didn`t have to replace them.check the horn at the horn,with someone pushing on the horn pad tap the horn to see if it will try to work if so then the horn needs to be replaced if not then run a power wire from the battery positive to the connector at the horn if the horn works again the horn needs replacing.

I have a dodge caravan 2000, and the horn doesn't work. I changed the relay fuse and fuses. It still doesn't work. Please help.


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.

My car horn randomly goes off while car is off?


The horn works by earthing, normally done by you pressing switch, if the horns wire or the internally creates a contact to earth(chassis) your horn will sound. Take your switch apart on you steering wheel & give it a clean.
Hope this helps, if not, remove wire at horn end, leaves you with no horn but peaceful nights.
Have a nice day.

Horn stops work periodically


hi , if like a similar problem i had years ago , the problem is either a bad connection on the steering wheel or an earth fault on the horn its self ? the car i had the fault on was a mk1 golf and under the steering wheel was a copper strip round the neck of the wheel where its connected to steering rod.....the connection (similar to a motor armature brush) was not making a good connection, i cleaned them with wire wool and hey presto. hope this helps??
