    The key fob is not always used, sometimes the car is unlocked. No one has to be around the car.

    Is this happening when you use your key FOB to lock your car? Any other time it happens?

SOURCE: Airbag light flashing

As long as the light is on the airbag system is disabled.

I would suspect that your clockspring behind the steering wheel is going bad. I would have someone with a scan tool that is able to retrieve trouble codes from the airbag system check it for codes to verify this. If so then steering wheel and steering column trim would have to be removed to access the clockspring to replace it.

SOURCE: 2000 Tahoe Horn broken

You can remove the horn relay and use a Ohm meter and check the resistance between the horn relay connector terminal No. 86 (Black Wire) and ground. If the ohms are less then 5 ohms replace the horn relay. There are a lot more tests but as Polarcycle states you can do what he suggested other then I believe you have two horns in this vehicle.

SOURCE: horn honks when turning, randomly

sounds like a electrical problem. When you turn it is completing the circuit some how, sounds like wires are touching each other and making the horn honk when turning. easiest thing is remove the fuse if possible.

Why horn keeps honking when starting 2001 malibu?


The horn works off "Ground". Your horn wire is grounding out somewhere.

Why does horn keep honking by itself, whether in park or I'm driving it, but won't work when I try to honk it myself?


you have broken wire under your steering wheel to fix this the wheel needs to come off BUT!! you have a air bag in the steering wheel do not attempt this your self as that air bag can kill you take the car to a shop that understands the process of getting in there , what you have is a broken or bare wire in there thats why you horn blows by its self

Crimestopper SP501 car alarm/remote starter will not respond. The 2 way one doesn't work, the sidekick does.


You need to program your crimestopper sp-501 key fobs, you need to program both the 2-way and the 1-way key fobs, during the same key fob program session. First find your valet button/switch, when you have found it, turn your ignition on and press the valet button four times, if you have a toggle type switch for a valet switch, toggle it up and down four times, when its in remote key fob program mode, it will honk your horn 4-times followed by 4-parking light flashes. Once your have done this press the lock button on the 2-way key fob, horn will honk and the 2-way will sing a little song to confirm programed, then press the lock button on the 1-way key fob the horn honk will be your confirm programed. turn ignition off this will exit you from program mode. then shut all doors and test key fobs for operation functions....hope this helps you out

I have a 98 Nissan altima gxe and my alarm won't honk when I lock the car but the lights go off when I lock it and Wen I take the alarm off no honk or lights go off Wat can I do


holdboth the lock and unlosk buttons on your remote simultaneously for about five seconds until the lights flash and horn chirps.that should do it.if not i believe these models used a separate horn for security system.possibly fuse for this horn is bad or the horn itself is bad.to see if this horn works lower drivers window.stand outside vehicle and lock doors with remote.wait about a minute and reach in window and MANUALLY unlock and open door(do not use power door lock button)this should cause the system to activate...horn should beep and headlamps should flash.if horn beeps try my first suggestion.if it doesnt beep and just the head lamps flash check fuses and horn for security system.

Car stuck in park after pulling "stop horn" fuse on 07 Honda Civic. Horn was honking after jump starting it.


You will need to replace that "stop horn" fuse since it also feeds power to the stop lamps and the gear shifter solenoid, when you step on the brake pedal. Your best bet is to unplug the horn on the vehicle(to stop it from honking) until you can get it fixed. That way, you will be able to shift out of park to get it to a shop for repairs.

I bought a 2004 Kia sedona and they added a keyless remote, however when you lock the car with the remote the horn doesn't beep nor do the lights blink. Is there a programming solution


Depends how they installed the remote, there is normally an option to connect a wire to the horn and one to the parking lights, however it may be possible that they didn't attach those 2 or simply that remote module didn't have it, however most do.
This may be too simple, but mine only honks and flashes after pushing lock twice, it locks on the first push.

Jetta no longer makes beeping sound when locked.


try honking the horn normally with horn button <key must be on> if horn works it is in the programing for comfort and convieniance system if no honk it's just the horn or wiring to horn.

99 malibu horn honks shifting into D or R


wires from the horn run down the steering column and pass the area where the shift linkage is also in the column. its either a loose wire, or a chafted wire inside the column. Be VERY careful working on this if you have airbags. they must be disarmed before you work on the column.
