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.

Horn doesnt work all fuses and relays are good


If you know the fuse and relay have power, you should be able to jumper the relay and make the horn blow. The horn pad on the steering wheel usually grounds the relay. If you can jumper the relay and make the horn blow, the problem may be the horn pad or the clockspring in the steering column.

2004 Malibu Maxx keeps blowing horn fuse. Works when I replace fuse for about 6 times. Horn itself feels touchy as in only works when pressed certain way. Shift paddle on side of shifter also does not...


Try disconnecting the horn itself from the circiut,hold the horn button on for a while,if the fuse no longer blows,it's a safe bet the horn itself was the culprit,if it still burns the fuse,the wiring or clockspring are shorting out

Horn not working and the fuse is not blowed out


This needs to be diagnosed. It could be a horn assembly that has failed. It could be the clockspring assembly in the steering column. It could be a bad horn relay. Someone needs to check the horn circuits to find the cause of the failure.

My daughters 1998 honda accord ex keeps blowing fuses she is having to replace the brake light fuse after we replaced the brake light switch when she changed the fuse last the horn blew and she was shocked...


The horn and rear brake lights are on the same fuse. Eventually the horns rust out like on my 1998 CRV. Once I replaced the horns, I could put in a new fuse without it blowing every time I sounded the horn. Problems still remain, namely: the cruise control does not engage and the remote start only starts the engine that runs for two seconds then dies. Still looking for an answer. It's a "Code Alarm" with Codestart dated 11/24/99.

My 2007 forenza horn works from time to time, otherwise not at all the fuses are fine and the relay is clicking but the horn doesnt blow


more than likely the horn is bad, but i wouldnt rule out the possibility of a faulty clockspring ,but not likely.

No power to the horn switched relays around still


hello, it is common for chrysler to use no horn fuse! what they use in place is the "clockspring". the clockspring is located in steering columb under the wheel....does your cruise control work (if equipped)? if no cruise control function it is most likely a bad clockspring!..... good luck, marty
