SOURCE: cableing problem

I am sure that you had the problem fixed by now, but if not believe or not you can go to autozone nad they will print you a page from all data that will show the direction and order of the firing. Just remember when you are looking down on top the motor from passenger side that the cylinder closest to you is number 1

SOURCE: had the rack and pinion

while replacing a rack on any car with a airbag made into the steering column you have to make sure the steering wheel does not move while changing out the rack.......if it moves buy itself or lets just say someone was to move it for a joke and it gets out of position and after you put everything back together and turn the steering all the way the wires in the spiral cable will stretch and break...i have seen this happen all the time when you are working on the steering system....the spiral cable will turn 2.5 turns in each direction when you are installing a new one and if it is installed .5 to 1 turn out then when you drive the car and turn the wheel lock to lock the wires are going to stretch and break.....i would have to say that whoever installed the rack has caused all of your other problems and if it was the company i work for they would take care of it for you...i hope that this info was helpful and if i can help you in any other way let me know and if you would also let me and fixya know if i was of any help to you and a comment and a comment would be appreciated...thanks and good luck...have a blessed day......

What fuse for horn 2005 toyota camry


10 amp fuse located under the hood on the drivers side fuse block........there is also a horn relay that is in that same fuse block.......if both of these are good get a test light and unplug the horn and get someone to hold the horn on while you check and see if you have power going to it.if you do then you know that the horn is bad and sometimes you can tap on it and get it to work......if you do not have any power and youknow for sure that the fuse and the relay are good then i would be checking the spiral cable. it is a ribbon that has wires in it and spins as the steering turns and the will break sometimes.......i would let a certified technician check this as it is part of the air bag system......good luck and i hope this info will help you......let me know or fixya know if i did my job and a thumbs up........thanks and if i can help you any further let me know i have been working on toyota and lexus for 25 yrs.................

I depress my horn on my 2008 yaris and it stays on intermittenly and stops when it wants to what can i check or what is wrong


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to help...

What you probably have is a bad "spiral cable", or better known as the "clockspring". This is a cable that winds and unwinds as the steering wheel is turned. This cable allows power to be transmitted to the air bag, to deploy it, in the event of a collision. Since the horn button is in front of the air-bag, the circuit that allows the horn to activate is also part of this cable device.

We would suggest having it properly checked by a professional who is very familiar with this device, and, if it is found to be bad, replaced. Non-professional diagnosis and poking about with the spiral cable could lead to an air bag that will not deploy.

Thanks for using FixYa for assistance today.

1999 toyota avalon horn works intermitely


I would suggest to you to have the spiral cable (or 'clockspring') replaced. This is the electrical unit that transfers power to the air bag, the horn and the cruise control.

It is located right under the seering wheel.

Your description of the issue indicates to me that your spiral cable is loose, and making intermittant contact. If the vehicle had an air-bag deployment, this cable-device should have been changed.

Horn stopped working


HORN CIRCUIT RUNS THROUGH AIRBAG "CLOCKSPRING". THIS CLOCKSPRING IS A ROTATING DEVICE THAT HAS A SPIRAL CABLE INSIDE THAT FLEXES AS YOU TURN THE STEERING WHEEL. THE PROBLEM AFFECTS THE CRUISE CONTROL SOMETIMES AND THE AIRBAG LIGHT MAY STAY ON ALSO. ONE OR MORE FUNCTIONS MAY BE AFFECTED OR JUST A SINGLE CIRCUIT(HORN). THE PROBLEM AREA WILL BE FROM THE STEERING WHEEL DOWN(MOST LIKELY THE CLOCKSPRING) HAVE YOUR DEALERSHIP RUN THE VIN NUMBER THROUGH THEIR SYSTEM AND SEE IF THERE ARE ANY RECALLS CONCERNING THIS. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU!!

How to replace the combination switch


You need to disconnect the battery.
Remove the upper and lower steering column shrouding
Remove the torx bolts that holds on the horn pad
Center the steering wheel
Remove the horn pad and disconnect the air bag
Remove the large nut that holds on the steering wheel
Bump to loosen, and remove the steering wheel.
Remove the spiral cable assembly; 4 screws
note: do NOT move the spiral cable left or right; you will damage it.
The combination switch retention screws will now be visible.

All in all, a pretty easy job.

Carmy horm will not work year 1996


You have a damaged Spiral Cable, or, as more commonly referred as a "Clockspring". This is the wiring that connects the steering column to the steering wheel. Inside the housing for the Clockspring is a flat wire harness that connects the vehicle harness to the variuous controls on the steering wheel...the horn, the air bag, the cruise switch, etc etc. What you need to do is go to a Toyota dealership parts department, and purchase a Spiral Cable assembly. Pull the steering wheel, and you will see it. Remove the 4 screws, and pull the Cable unit, and unplug it. Fit the new Cable assembly, and refit the screws; plug it all back together. Just remember to keep the steering wheel CENTERED...the replacement Cable assembly comes in teh "Centered" position. Do not rotate it left or right, or you will lose the centering of the cable..This will break the wire..

Horn button on 98 Sienna


I just took a look into my steering wheel horn set up.
It is defective design. Only one of the two contact plates are connected. The ground from the spiral cable is not used for the horn. I can fix the first part, but the latter part will need a consult with Toyota service dept or HQ. If you have the same problem, let Toyota and nhtsa.dot.gov know about the problem. I've read a lot of fixes that didn't work. The normal suspects on the horn are: relay, horn (use the alarm to check or by pass the relay), spiral cable, contact plate, but my new one is that one of the contact plate is not connected and ground from spiral cable is not used for the horn. Just indirect contact from the steering shaft. You need to know haw to remove the air bag to look at that area.

Air Bag Sensor light on & horn not working


Without knowing exactly what the air bag code is, coupled with the known fact that the horn is inoperative, my opinion for a viable solution is to replace the spiral cable or, as commonly called, the "clockspring". This device is the main wiring connection between the steering wheel and the wiring harness. If the circuit(s) open,due to a failure of the spiral cable, the air bag light will be on, the horn will not work,and , if you have a steering wheel Cruise control, it too may be inoperative. Best solution: replace the clockspring. Best advice: Get the airbag DTC's checked, and if you have an open in the driver side air bag circuit, the clockspring is def the culprit. Given that you had chassis work, your DTC just may be the front crash sensor, and the horn may just be unplugged, or bad, This is the best I can do for you, given the info that you have provided,
Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.
