What cause the horn to blow on it own or go off with out pressing the center piece on the steerling wheel?


Usually a bad clock spring under the steering wheel. Does it stop if you rotate the steering wheel? The clockspring is a mylar tape that conducts power to the steering wheel switches. It winds up and unwinds as you turn the wheel. The conductors can short or open. Or, you could have a bad horn switch, but pretty rare. Clockspring is more common.

2010dodge journey, vehicle just horn blowing ossasionally


Usually caused by a bad clockspring under the steering wheel but can also be caused by a bad horn relay. Does it happen more often when you're turning? If so, I'd put money on the clockspring

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.

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.

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

I have a 1995 Toyota Rav4 Jeep that the horn does not blow


The most common cause is that the ribbon contact drum under the steering wheel is faulty and has a broken filament. The part is called the "clock spring contact drum"
