Inside the components of the steering assembly and shaft they have put contacts that touch a ring as the wheel is turned enabling current to flow thru while not having wires to worry about breaking internally from constant back forth motoin of the wheel. It is conceivable that a component in this assembly has broken, especially if the horn blows when you turn the wheel versus driving straight and the horn does not blow. This would be the place to start if i was diagnosing this vehicle. Special tools are needed to remove the steering wheel assembly so if you are unsure of what you r doing have an experienced technician repair this problem.

2001 VW Bug Horn was randomly honking, Now it wont work at all. Relays and Fuses are good. Should I just replace the horn itself? Not quite sure whats the issue.Want to figure out before making drive


it the horn activates randomly when driving and when the steering wheel is moved , the problem will be the ground contact under the steering wheel
there is a small spring loaded button that runs on a slip ring in the back of the steering wheel and intermittent/ random operation can be traced back to a fault in this area
the horn works so it is good , the fuses and relays are working to make the horn work so they are good ( unless there is a grounding problem with the relay causing the relay to operate and blow the horn)

Repair horn on 2009 honda civic


With the key on but not the engine, press the horn ring a listen for a click, that click is a horn relay. You may need someone to listed under the hood for you, If you don't hear the click, take the covers off the fuse box and see if there is a diagram for the relays that shows a horn relay. While you are checking, look for a fuse for the horn. In rare cases it could be the horn ring or the clock spring.

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.

check the power to the horn with a test light.have someone push the horn button and look for power at horn.next listen for a click sound it will come from the horn relay if it is working.find the horn and apply power to the horn and it should honk.if not replace horn.other wise there is a contact in the steering wheel that it touches .that ring or contact might be at fault.or relay if no click heard.

I have a 63 Ford T-Bird that I can't get the horn to work. I have checked the wires and the grounds and they look good. The horns work when I tested them also but when I put the steering column together...


You missed something putting the column back together. IDK the design of the wheel, but if all the wires to the column are good, I'd look at the switch itself in the column. Probably not making contact.

My 2005 aveo horn does not work I replaced the fuse and still not working


see if the horn will sound as you turn the steering wheel hard in both directions. a lot of time there are this connecting rings in the steering whell that make connection with the horn operation. these rings get worn just by driving even when you haven't used the horn. I hope this is not the cause because it can be costly. many times the fix is to replace the wheel. I had a toyota once and also the ole' pinto that had thses symptoms. both cars had the same cause. the toyota had to have another steering wheel. I can't remember what I did with the pinto. ( I do remember a funny story with the pinto, I lived in an apartment complex and one night at about 2a.m. the horn started blowing, I waited for a while then got mad at who ever is keeping me up I stormed outside and behold it was my ford pinto. I think I remember destroying the center of the wheel to get the horn to stop.)))) hope this helps.

Horn blows continuily


Check the horn ring assembly and the horn replay. One of the two of them has failed closed.

Be careful in checking the horn ring as you can inadvertently set off the airbag. That, will ruin you day and dent your wallet.
