Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

My car horn randomly goes off while car is off?

This morning my 1998 ford contour's horn just went off I don't have a remote or car alarm at all on this car. I did attempt to use my horn while driving yesterday however it never worked? I think there might be something wrong I went out and started it and it stopped however when I parked at the store it went off again when I tried to turn the vehicle off while in park I found that by stepping on the brake while taking the key out it stopped. However I live in an apartment complex and don't want this happening again lol. Any tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

The horn works by earthing, normally done by you pressing switch, if the horns wire or the internally creates a contact to earth(chassis) your horn will sound. Take your switch apart on you steering wheel & give it a clean.
Hope this helps, if not, remove wire at horn end, leaves you with no horn but peaceful nights.
Have a nice day.

I have a Taurus 2004, and it happens that the car horn beeps 3 times randomly. does anyone know what would it may be?


the horn beeping at random is indicating a fault in the alarm system. alarms have their own battery which is balanced by the car battery and any unbalance ( corroded connections -bad earth, low charged battery in alarm, loose battery connections ) will cause the horn to sound --same as too sensitive a setting for the alarm or a intermittent power to the alarm

1998 Lincoln continental horn keeps going off unexpectedly


Nothing wrong with the car. It is getting a signal that mimics your remote's "panic" signal. Someone in your area may have an alarm with a remote controlled snooze. If the car was at fault the times would be random.

Antitheft system keep goes on I can't start vehicle


Use the remote to deactivate alarm or use key in the door lock to unlock the door. The problem you had is when you lock the door and the alarm activates it must see a disarm signal or else it thinks someone broke the window and used the switch to open the door.

1998 Ford Windstar alarm goes off randomly


Ours does the same thing, and every time it goes off we find an interior light on, or the glove box is open. Somehow the electrical circuit from the lights sets off the alarm. *shrug* Weird...

The horn goes off by itself. The alarm sometimes


Sounds like you have a short in your wiring. Check the wires to make sure none are touching

Antitheft


you might have a deffective alarm module. easiest way is to remove the wires of the horn itself. you might also try using the key to lock the car not the keyless entry remote

Factory alarm


the only way to reset an alarm is to disconnect the battery cables.

there is no such thing as an alarm reset switch.

My suggestion would be to go to autozone, they sell replacement key pads.
