When I start the car and put it into drive the horn goes on, when I shut the car off the horn sounds! wont go off until I disconnect the battery


You could pull the horn fuse, that should kill it. The horn fuse is hot all the time. Two possibilities, one is security system, the other is problem with horn switch or wiring in the steering column.
The horn switch is ground for the control side of horn relay. Part of key fob security horn beep, is also a ground wire. In the diagram, you can see the two wires, The one for fob, take it loose, see if that stops the horn sounding by accident. Don't leave any live wires hanging loose, use electrical tape or something to insulate. I don't know if taking that one wire loose will cause any problems or not, I guess you can try it and see?
Of course, you still want the horn switch to work normally.

How do I wire a horn on a 1995 chev truck


Is there a problem with horn wiring in the steering column? The safest fix is to fix so the horn button on the steering will work. I'm not sure I understand your problem?

You could mount a separate horn button on the dash, but, that isn't the safest thing to do because your used to the horn button on the steering wheel.

If you mount a separate horn button, all you need is the horn ground that goes up the steering column, it is black. Find the harness under dash that goes into your steering column, black wire, just to test, use jumper wire from that wire to good ground, if the horn starts sounding, that's it. Run that wire to horn button. Also, you may need to run second ground from that horn button, if it doesn't ground through mounting bracket.

I replaced my steering column in my 98' Plymouth


It sounds like it's possibly an incompatability with options between the old and new components. Does your van have the security feature on it? If so, you may need to ensure that your replacement steering column comes from a vehicle that also had the security feature on it. Sounds a bit lame, but these things are so inter-wired with various components that replacing parts without the same options on it simply won't work.

2000 grand caravan. The horn doesn't work. I changed the relay& the fuse. It still doesn't work.


If you ahve checked and replaced these things then you would need to check the collar switch. this is on the steering column, behind the steering wheel.

I have a 2001 dodge durango. the horn works when i set the alarm but does not work from the steering wheel at all.


The horn has power all of the time but does not go off untill it is grounded. The switch in the steering wheel is the ground when you press it completing the circuit and sounding the horn. The alarm does not use the steering column or steering wheel ground path to "beep" the horn, it uses its own ground. The problem then will more than likely be in the steering column, steering wheel switches, or clock-spring. The clock spring is not for the clock. It is a spiral-wound wire set that allows the steering wheel to turn and not bind up the wires going into the steering wheel. It is called a clock-spring due to the "spiral" wound design of the connector. The horn ground wire in the steering wheel gets its connection through this clock-spring, so it may the source of your problem. It would require some electrical diagnostics to verify the actual point of failure.

Horn blows constantly, doesn,t blow the fuse or anything else. can this problem be outside of the horn blowing assy. on the steering wheel? it,s a 2000 galant. problem occurs all the time if the switch is...


  • The horn relay might have welded contacts (stuck in the on position). Pulling the relay should stop the horn.
  • The wiring harness on the steering column might have a broken wire to the horn relay shorting to someplace that applies power to the relay. In this case, turning the steering wheel all the way to one side or the other may stop the horn, and it won't sound when you press the horn button.
  • The horn button in the steering wheel is stuck on or shorted.

First the horn would blow while turning left, the a clicking sound while turning, then no horn still making clicking sound.


what is the model of your vehicle. Sounds most likely to be a hardware problem in the steering column. remove the steering wheel and you should see (depending on the model) a pin and spring in a circular plastic bracket shaped with the column. periodically the bracket or even spring pops out and grinds triggering the horn(works by suppling a ground to the wire) when you turn also allowing you to here the clicking.

Horn not working ! it worked once then stopped any


start at the horn to see if it the wire is connected, then i would remove that wire and use a jumper wire from a positive(battery) to the horn itself and see if you get any sound. If the horn beeps then the horn itself is not the issue. check your horn fuse and relay. if you are getting power at the fuse and relay it is somewhere in the steering column. possible the horn pad itself or the horn cam. If you have have this in for repairs in the past dealing with the steering column it might not have been hooked back up properly. but then again how often do you use your horn it might have been not working for quite awhile. hope this helps.
