I have a 2000 Nissan altima. When ever I'm driving and I honk the horn the horn doesn't stop and when I press the horn while it is going off it unlock and locks the door.


Turn the steering wheel all the way one direction and try it, then turn it all the was the other direction and try it. If it changes behavior, then the issue is something called a clock spring that is in the steering column. If it does not change the behavior then you either have a floating ground or a bad control module.

My car has a rattling noise in the steering wheel compartment. it sounds like metal on metal clanking and it also causes my car to honk. any ideas about whats going on


sounds like one of the springs behind the horn has brokwn and is just hanging out in there and when you turn it is making contact between the horn pad and gorund. look on the side of the air bag and you should be able to pop out to little platic cover pieces and then take out both of those bolts that hold the air bag in place then you will find your problem. frist disconnect the battery

I turn the wheel to one side and it honks but when the stearing wheel is straight it doesnot honk


Sounds like you have some worn-out or corroded electrical components in your steering column, specifically the part that connects your horn switch wires. The area where your steering wheel meets the steering column is a common place for electrical problems to occur.

Tail lights and blinkers out on a 96 nissan hardbody pick up truck. Also when I turn the wheel to the right my horn honks by itself? Also my speedometer went out as well. I changed my fuses and they all...


  1. First check the alternator maybe you need to replace it.
  2. The horn honks when you turn the steering wheel because the wire inside the steering wheel is not fix.
  3. Visit a good mechanic and good electrician to check the alternator and the wirings.

Horn wont stop


sounds like the horn contact terminal inside the steering wheel got disconnected and is hitting a metal part of the steering column which triggers the horn. the terminal that got disconnected is probably has positive polarity and the metal part of the steering column has negative polarity. If they come in contact with each other... *honk* *honk*

HORN BLOWS WHEN I TURN MY STERRING WHEEL


I also had this problem along with a clunk sound when I turn my steering wheel. After disconnecting the battery for 30 min I proceeded to take off the 3 small covers on my steering wheel and then take off the 2 bolts that hold my airbag on. What I found was what looks to be a piece of metal the used to be attached to 3 small rubber pillars that went to a small thin piece of metal that was screwed into the steering wheel housing that had all 3 of the rubber pillars broken and big metal piece was just flopping around inside the steering wheel causing the horn to go off when I turned. No one can tell me what this part is so I just removed it and put it back together and every thing seems to be working fine now. It did not seem to have any thing to do with the Airbag as the airbag came off in 1 piece. It has been suggested to me that it was some sort of balancing weight for the steering wheel. Even the Nissan dealer could not tell me what it was. Any ways it seems fine with out it. DW

Horn


since heat caused the problem, i used cold for the fix.....there are several types of canned "FREEZE" that are used for electronic testing...i sprayed the steering wheel--twice. i think it released the weight of the steering wheel cover on the horn contacts...that or my prayers were answered......whatever the fix----currently AIN'T BROKE.....
