My 1998 montero sport horn wont work I checked the fuses they,re ok.


Check the connection to the horn? be sure they are properly grounded. Also the horn switch on the steering wheel may be not making a connection with the ring plate behind the steering wheel and before the column.

Could be the horn pad on the steering wheel, or a wiring problem in the column.

I have a 2004 malibu--the horn works some times--maybe when I turn the corner, on the highway going straight--it will not work--took to firestone, they want to charge me 300.00 for a part--do you know why ...


whith the engine running and the vehicle parked bush on the steering wheel to activate the horn while rotating the steering wheel at the same time. If the horn beeps at certain points in the steering wheels rotation than either the clock spring has gone bad or the horn contact button has gone bad in the multi-function switch.

1998 cadillac, the horn just went off 3am in the morning, would not stop..until I pushed on the steering wheel part of the horn..car was locked..I had to get out of bed to stop it! WHY WOULD IT JUST GO...


I have a 1977 Cadillac Seville and it does the same thing, and when the outside temperature drops below 65 degrees the horn will sound continuously until either the horn relay or the horn fuse is removed.

The problem is in the horn pad on the steering wheel, and the contact plates inside of the horn pad are too close together (a manufacturing defect) and when the temperature drops down to a certain degree then the horn pad will contract and cause the metal contact plates inside of the horn pad to touch and make contact, and it is same thing as if you were pushing on the horn pad.

I have also heard of the exact opposite happening and when the temperature gets too hot the horn pad will expand and cause the metal contact plates to touch and make contact and activating the horn.

Horn rings intermittanl while driving


Inside the components of the steering assembly and shaft they have put contacts that touch a ring as the wheel is turned enabling current to flow thru while not having wires to worry about breaking internally from constant back forth motoin of the wheel. It is conceivable that a component in this assembly has broken, especially if the horn blows when you turn the wheel versus driving straight and the horn does not blow. This would be the place to start if i was diagnosing this vehicle. Special tools are needed to remove the steering wheel assembly so if you are unsure of what you r doing have an experienced technician repair this problem.
