First you want to disconect the battery before you do any work near the air bag. And secondly there is nothing in ther like we are used to fixing back in the day. What is in there now is what is called a clock spring. This is a mess of wires that everything in the steering wheel runs through. I.E. horn, cruise, turnsignal. you get the idea. And its all packed into a neat little can that just plugs in. Trust me when I say this- the wires are way to small to fix- just replace it. As far as removing the wheel, look on the back side of the wheel and you will see the screws that hold the pad on , then procced like normall after disconecting the battery first.

Chevy malibu horn won't stop honking


Why not just unplug the horn rather than the battery? One wire plugs into it. The cause could be a number of things. (i.e. Horn button stuck in steering wheel, defective anti-theft system, etc....) This is a tough one to diagnosis.

Horn is stuck on 2004 chevy malibu


There is one wire that attaches diirectly to horn that can be removed to stop horn. There is a fuse in fusebox that may also be removed. There are screws in the backside of steering wheel to remove front of steering wheel cover and inspect horn contact for damage or corrosion. If removing steering cover, use care to disconnect airbag actuator to prevent airbag inflation.

How do you fix horn button in 2004 Chevy malibu


You would need to check the circuits at the relay.
The horn pad grounds the relay to make the horn blow.
You should have power at the relay, and a ground from the horn pad when it is pressed. The third wire goes to the horns.

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.

My 1999 Chevy malibu horn does not work after an the airbags delpoyed


If your not going to fix the horn plate in the column. Wiring a horn button is easy. You need a hot lead from the fuse panel to the after market button and from the other side to the horn button under the hood unit (grill area). Most horn unit are self grounding.

How do I take the driving wheel apart to get to the horn? I have a 2002 Lincoln Continental


I guess you mean steering wheel? If so, the horn is not in there, only a switch to activate the horn. The horn is under the hood mounted on the inside of your fender. To test if the horn or switch is not working, run a 12 gauge wire from the positive lead on the horn to the positive lead on your battery. If it sounds, the horn works and the switch is most likley the problem. If no sound then the horn is bad. But remeber to check your fuse panel before doing this, you may just have a blown fuse (easy fix) Be careful!

Could have a bad clock spring which is behind the steering wheel,or could be bad horns have you tried jumping the horns with straight power?

Car Horn


Try using a 12volt jumper wire directly to the horn from the car battery. also check the ground on the horn. The last thing I would do is pull the steering wheel cover. Make sure the horn is blowing first.
