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.

I have a 2006 Suzuki Forenza and my horn will not blow. Tried replacing fuse and the horn didn't sound at all, just blew the brand new fuse. Any help would be great!


its shorted, that line, the fuse blew saving you a nice fire.
are you using the correct fuel shown in you operators guide, see index , fuses.

do not mess under dash until you defeat those air bags, they can kill you. (break a neck easy) the schmatic is here.

https://suzukipitstopplus.com/Products/1066-2006-forenza-reno-service-manual.aspx
$4 cost, dirt cheap.

first look at the actual horn, see damage there, it or the plug.
pull its plug and safe off (means tape it) and see if fuse blows yet?
always work the simple side first, not air bag side,or the
air bag clock spring, inside, steering last.

its either path A shorted, (most likely but fate wins)
or Path B, shorted relay coil.
if horn unplugged, fixes blowing fuse, the horn is bad.
easy huh?

Horn blows by itself


I verify its not a stuck relay...

I disconnect connector under dash and horn stops...


I then suspect its the Horn contacts or a worn grounded wire in air bag/horn switch assembly in steering wheel.




The decorative Vinyl cover shrinks with age...presses on horn contacts against air bag.

I Disconnect Air bag connector (identified as Yellow wire and Connector) usually under dash.

WARNING: ( I Do not - I DO NoT probe the yellow harness/connector with a meter or test light. A test light WILL Detonate my air bag, and impale the bracket in a nearby object/person - me.)

I Removed screws (2) behind steering wheel - which allow air bag horn assembly to be removed.


I Disconnect Air bag connector in this location as well (identified as Yellow wire and Connector) and then;




The red (color varies) and black Horn wires will be plugged into ribbon connectors usually (2) two that feed/connect to contacts for horn function on face of air bag.

I pause here and verify horn will stop blowing when I disconnect the wires going to horn contacts. So I get horn blowing again...

Check horn: To verify this is the cause; I reconnect (whatever fuse/relay/ connector (Not the airbag connector) I disconnected so they will stop blowing) and get horn/s so they are blowing again...

Then I disconnect the ribbon connectors to verify blowing stops.

Note: The experience I had with horn on

Buick Park Ave was at night when temperature cools after hot day, the vinyl cover shrank and horn blows... pressing on horn area of steering wheel firmly would stop horn briefly - then continue.

Note: I will need a rivet tool and rivets... to reassemble.

WARNING: I Do not drill into airbag explosive container. If I do not know how to carefully drill off correct rivet heads and remove vinyl decorative cover from air bag/horn... I STOP and go to the junkyard or ebay and purchase/replace the airbag/horn assembly.

I continued by drilling out rivets (the rivets holding vinyl cover) by using a drill bit as large (or smaller) as the head of rivet and drill gently to release head from rivet body/shank.



I mark all pieces with a magic marker to verify I reassemble right side up (all metal brackets and trim plates and cover).



I Remove vinyl cover exposing horn contact pads which were sandwiched between cover and air bag container.

I used a razor blade to remove vinyl honeycomb material from area of vinyl cover - that when pressed - would activate horn/contacts.

Only a 1/16 of an inch or less needs to be removed.

(I Bend cover inside out and shave material off of area slowly. Care not to cut myself.)

I Reassemble in reverse order with rivets.

Check horn: ...function at this point... by plugging in horn connectors and assure horn contacts work properly as expected.

My car horn blows when it gets cold


Sounds like a problem with the contacts under the air bag.
You may have to remove the air bag to check it.

Horn on 2003 Grand Am blows continually, relay is good but if you leave the fuse in ,the horn keeps blowing and after a while the fuse blows


Yes you would need to remove the air bag to check the switch contacts. And you would need to disconnect the battery for a few hours before removing the air bag.
I would check with the dealer on the contacts to see if they are separate or part of the air bag.
You could take a test light and check to see if the ground wire from the steering wheel is making the relay power the horn.

I have a 2005 Nissan Altima and my horn don't work


you may have a problem with the clock spring or spiral cable as nissan calles it. it is a part of the air bag system and also horn signal runs into and out of it.if that part is bad, your air bag light will flash and your horn will not work. has anyone been doing any repairs inside of the steering wheel?? it may just be unpluged. if you are going to tackle this your self to look inside of the steering wheel, make sure you disconnect the battery for at least 3 minutes, befor you start playing with the air bag. you dont want to blow it up.

Air bag light is on 96 grand caravan


i may be mistaken on if this applies to your model year but if the rear wiper does not work then check the fuse for rear wiper and replace if blown. make sure rear wiper switch is off and wiper is parked.if air bag light goes out after a few seconds then the rear wiper motor is bad causing fuse to blow. air bag module gets power for its fuse through wiper fuse.if wiper is not parked then fuse may blow when you turn yhe key on.you have two choices. replace wiper motor or remove tailgate door panel and unplug the motor

Horn wont work.i check the fuse in the door and


Maybe horn became unplugged. Put 12 v power to horn make sure horn works. Put test light on terminal on horn have someone press the horn button, if light comes on and horn does not blow you may need new horn. if light does not come on you may have bad contact at horn button, blown fuse, broken wire, bad horn relay or possibly just a bad ground.
