SOURCE: my 200 jeep cherokee classic's horn wont turn off?

In the PCM is where the Horn Relay is. It's location should be annotated on the underside of the cover you pulled off to gain access. One way to determine if it is the Relay or not is to find a similiar Relay (shape and size) and switch them. If this fixes the Horn problem it is the Relay and should be replaced.

SOURCE: 2003 Hyundai Tiburon. The horn will start blowing

There are a few possibilities:

First of all, don't use the factory alarm. If the problem disappears, then the alarm is causing the horn to activate.

If that doesn't help, then verify the horn switch itself. Probably best to have your dealer do this because it's very close to the airbag.

If it's not that, then it may be the dreaded BCM starting to fail. The BCM, or "Body Control Module" is a dealer only component.

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.

Need to figure out why horn is not working


There are several possibilities. Is the horn itself ok? Is the relay OK? Is the horn switch OK? Those are some starting points but without make and model it is hard for us to help you.

Where is circuit breaker for headlamps on a 1989 caprice


The breaker for the headlights is inside the headlight switch.
You should have a fuse and relay for the horn.
Could be a problem with the wiring harness for the steering column.

Tried to start truck but it continues to turn over without key turned, is it bad solenoid....replace starter?


Yes. Replacing the starter should fix it for sure! I wouldn't wait too long though, sometimes they can start on fire if they don't stop trying to turn.

Horn malfunction


Under the hood of your jeep on the passenger side there is the Power Distrubution Center (PDC). Remove the lid and thered will be fuses and relays in there. I could not locate the exact location of the horn reley, but if you start removing them one by one you can find the horn relay. You will know the right one when the horn stops.

Hi,

As in most electrical problems, it would be required to do a bit of tracing/diagnosis to determine which is at fault. Most automotive horn system works on the same basic design. A switch in the steering wheel that energizes the horn relay that in turn powers the horn(s). A self activating horn could be caused by:
1: intermittent short in the steering wheel horn button;
2. intermittent shorting out horn relay;
3. intermittent short in the wiring.

Basing on the above possibilities, diagnostic/corrective action would involve:
a. tapping on the steering wheel (not the horn button) to see if jarring it would activate the horn, if yes then the problem is with the horn switch and often cleaning the inside/contact points of the switch should be corrective;
b. tapping the horn relay with the handle of a screwdriver to determine if jarring it would activate the horn, if yes then the problem is with the horn relay which of course would need replacement;
c. the wiring would be a bit more complicated if not time consuming. It would be necessary to wiggle the wires coming from the steering wheel/column to the main harness, to the fuse/relay bank finally to the horn to check at which point the trouble would resurface. Taping any exposed/bare/scraped wire would be corrective. It should be noted that the steering horn switch often would be "to ground" meaning the horn switch is switching the horn relay by providing the negative path, the relay is constantly supplied with B+12.

There are some instances that the horn could also activated by an alarm system.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
