Question about 1996 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

Tail lights and blinkers out on a 96 nissan hardbody pick up truck. Also when I turn the wheel to the right my horn honks by itself? Also my speedometer went out as well. I changed my fuses and they all blew. I tried a 10, 15, and 20 and they all blew. What is wrong?!

    the car still starts, its just that i replaced the bulb and the fuses so could it be something else besides the alternator?

  1. First check the alternator maybe you need to replace it.
  2. The horn honks when you turn the steering wheel because the wire inside the steering wheel is not fix.
  3. Visit a good mechanic and good electrician to check the alternator and the wirings.

    • Check the wires maybe some wires are grounded or check the bulb make sure the volt of the bulb is compatible.

Horn on 96 cavilier will not honk,just get a clicking sound,already checked fuse

That clicking sound should be your horn relay and to me that tells us that the problem is under the hood. If you remove the passenger side headlight you should be able to access the horn itself. If you take a rest light and probe the connector at the green wire and have someone honk the horn while you have the test light on the green connector and the other end clipped to a good ground source the light should light up. If so you will need to get a replacement horn, if not you need to look at the wiring between the horn connector and the firewall.

My brake lights would not shut off,I had to use hazards to get home. Then they stopped blinking and also my turn signals done the same. 95 nissan hardbody pickup 2-wheel drive

Possibly the brake light switch, and if the blinker lights just stay on when you turn them on, and don't blink , could be your blinker relay.

My horn on my 93 ford taurus hasnt worked since I bought it but now it honks by itself if the wheels turned far enough either way but only if the head lights are on, any ideas whay may be causing this.

This is usually caused by crossed wires in your steering column........most cars run the ignition, lights, blinker wiring all together inside the steering column. They are often all tangled up together......any weakness in a wires plastic covering allows the signals to jump from one wire to another.

1992 Dodge Ram 50: Horn honks all by itself.

Check the horn actuating contact at the centre of the steering wheel. It may be damaged or mis-aligned.
Also check the carbon contact that runs on the slip ring under the steering wheel (associated with steering wheel horn actuate switch) It may be damaged or mis-aligned.

If none of the above are faulty, you should look for a possible intermittent short to ground on the horn actuation control wiring.

97 Jetta GLS - Horn honks when I turn the wheel to the left

sounds like there is something in the wrong place in the horn button. it makes contact when you turn left just as if you had pushed the horn button. i wonder does your airbag light ever come on, i mean not just in the startup sequence, that's normal. probably you need to take the horn button part of the steering wheel apart and get things back in the right place or maybe replace some parts, but because of the airbag being right there too it's not something i would recommend that you do yourself. accidentally setting off an airbag is not a good thing.
