    Ok. It has an airbag, so I'll d/c the neg cable.

    I take it that the clockspring is a dealer part?

    Thank you.

The clockspring is probably broken, or the contact or wires of the horn button assembly are damaged or malfunctonning, but i'd put my money on the clockspring, which is the spiraled coiled thingy around the steering column behind the steering wheel cover and/or airbag that keeps the current flowing from the swithes on the steering even while you turn the wheel. Hence the name clockspring. So on your year and model, if i'm not mistaken, the air bags were not necessarily stock on every model, so if you do not have airbags you can just go ahead and take the steering cover off, and if you do have airbags on you model, then you will need to start by disconnecting the negative wire on the battery to remove all possible grouns in the vehicule and prevent shorting the airbag mechanism, and prevent getting any body part in the way broken off by and exploding airbag. As for the cover on the steering itself, some models are just snapped on, but most model have at least 2 screws hidden on the backside of the steering wheel. And as for getting the clockspring off, again it differs depending on model. Most of the time you have 1 or 2 screws holding it in place, on some model it's more or less press fitted, and on some rare unlucky models, you need a special screwdriver to get the screws out, but as I said this particular screw type is pretty rare on the clockspring. And also don't forget to be careful with the wire attached to the clockspring, cause if you rip them out or damage them, you will be back at square one even with a new clockspring. Hope this helps.

How old? Do you have a door fob that is equipped with a panic button? You can push that to see if the horn is ok and it is the actual button on the steering column.
If the horn is ok, verify the air bag light is on or off, and maybe even issues with cruise control,You may have a bad clock spring in the steering column. Very expensive, but easy to replace.

2002 chevy mailbu horn wont turn off.

you may have sett off the panic button on your key chain that caused the car to go into panic mode for the computer. i have had this happen with my old 2000 malibu one suggestion i would say is to try pressing the panic button a few times to see if that is engaging or may disengage the system.
how ever thats if it is related to the panic mode of your car.
other solutions is buy a new horn or horn relay
you may have a short in the horn that could also be making it go off continually. if you are still having trouble see a chevy dealer shop and talk with them about your issue.

V50 horn doesn't work

Press panic button on the remote to check if horn is broken or if the switch in the steering wheel does not work.
Also check fuse for steering wheel module.

2002 Saturn L100 No Cruise control, audio after panic horn

The body control module (BCM) controls the operation of the horn for the security system and remote keyless entry (RKE) functions. Circuit 28 is grounded by the BCM when the horn operation is desired. Normal operation of the horn is performed by the horn switch grounding the horn relay and is not controlled by the BCM.
You don't need to take this to a dealer ,besides there are no more saturn dealers . Try a independent repair shop .
Does the cruise control light light up when you turn the cruise on ? Have you checked the fuse's ?

#1 the horn will not blow from the stiring wheel button. #2 the cruise control will not turn on. I have checked the fuze (2) locations.the panic button activates the horn.

There is a push relay under the steering padding. Could be stuck. If the fuse is good to the cruise control, the module is usually bad.

2000 F150 horn and cruise inop

First this only applies if your cruise buttons are on your steering wheel. If so look into a possible problem with the clockspring mounted in your steering column! Good Luck!

Fix this please

If your horn doesnt work either you have to remove the steering wheel and there is the connector for the horn/cruise control. If nothing broken there, check the clock spring too!

If your Air Bag light light is aluminated and The Cruise Control does not Work then the Problem is in the "CLOCK SPRING" this Component is Located Under the Steering Wheel and it requires the Steering Wheel to Be Removed.You Must have Complete Instructions on this Procedure or Injury Can Be the result.
