Horn doesn't work,abs light on dash stays on and also cruise control does not work either


Typical reason for no cruise and horn is a bad clock spring underneath the airbag. Typically you have an airbag light on as well and not an abs light

Brake lites on as soon i turn car on radio and horn dos not work sometimes the airbag lighitcomes on then the radio and horn is working and brake lightes is working normal wones the airbag light goes of ...


bad english accepted i come from the east end of london originally where english is the third language ,so what iam reading here is you have a problem with horn and the lights ,Now on this model if my memory serves me correct the brake lights will come on with the handbrake on ,but if its a auto version then the brake lights could be affected cruise control and what i think without a look myself is that the wires on the bottom of the steering wheel for the cruise and the radio horn ect run through the steering column and somehow they are damaged or twisted up and the only way is to remove the steering wheel to have a look ,to do this you must disconnect the battery first because if the airbag goes off accidently and your head is in the way then your dead .To get the stering wheel off you will have to remove the airbag unit first ,think its two torq 20 screws but it could be a 7mm headed nut ,remove the airbag then unplug it and then you can undo the big nut in the middle ,cannot remember the size of the nut though but once its off then the steering wheel comes off but its on a splined shaft so it may need a puller to get it off but i often use a piece of wood under a spoke and hit it with a 2kg hammer ,doesnt always work first time but normaly it does then you will tracks for the different controls .

Horn not working 02 tagret


Knowing the MY (model/year) tells me the horn is the problem. Yet, there is a Horn Relay and a fuse which feeds it power. A simple test with a 12 volt light bulb can verify/eliminate this as the cause. Connect a bulb (12 volt) to the connector contacts which plug into the horn. Then activate the horn (press on the steering wheel airbag) to see if the bulb lights up. If it does, then it's the horn. If it doesn't (make sure the bulb and connections are good), then the problem is in the wiring/relay/fuse.

Horn does not work when deperess


The caravan horn is a weak one. Locate the horn and disconnect the plug. One wire is hor all the time and it runs off the horn fuse in the undrhood fuse relay panel next to the battery. With a test light verify that the one wire is hot all the time. ( A test light is a tool looks like an ice pick with a clear handle that has a light bulb inside the handle has a wire coming out of it with a clip on the end, connect the clip to a metal ground and anything that electricly powered will light the light bulb in the handle) If it's hot then put the pointer in the other wire ( In the horns plug) and connect the clip of the light to the battery positive, Push the horn button and the light should light, if it does the horn is bad. If not the horn button or the clockspring is bad. The clockspring is the connection beteen the steering whell and the steering collum, It's a coil of ribbon cable that has the wires for the airbag the horn and any buttons for cruise control or radio volume or channels that may be the steering wheel. this cable can break or be overloaded and burn out. Most of the time when they fail the airbag light will be on the the cruise control won't work. The horn button is made into the airbag and seldom fails the fuse is second the horns fail often.
