Hi there,

A funny sounding horn is a great indicator that the car is not earthed correctly. Check the earth straps, there is one from the negative battery lead to the chassis. Undo it, scrub it with a wire brush and replace (petroleum jelly on the connectors helps stop rusting/furring).

Also, there is one at the abck of the engine which earths the PGMFi. This is the important one, make sure it is clean.

Hope this helps.

I am guessing that the ground is defective in the steering column, it will have to be taken apart to solve the problem. the air bag is the tricky thing to take care of so get the manual to have all the instructions and it will be helpfull for other repairs

Srs indicator on, horn not working

Honda has had an issue with the seat belt sensor not working properly causing the SRS light even when buckled. Horn is likely unrelated. Test horn but checking for 12v at plug at horn. If 12v at horn, then replace horn. If no 12v, then check horn fuse.

Headlight on 2003 Honda CR-V

From another forum I found the following:

"If you have an '02 CR-V and your low beams aren't working, pull the covers off of the steering column and check the headlamp switch connector and its wiring harness. The CR-V of that model year used the same headlamp switch as '01-02 Civics, which was recalled by Honda in the Civic models but not in CR-Vs. A problem with the switch causes the red/white wire and its terminal to overheat and burn or melt the harness connector and the socket/pins on the switch. This causes the low beams to stop working, while the high beams continue to function.

If you find that this is your problem, Honda's service bulletin (#04-015) advises to replace the headlamp switch and the connector and to splice a new terminal onto the red/white wire. They have a parts kit (part no. 35012-S5A-307) that includes the switch, connector, and wire. This kit is actually cheaper than buying the headlamp switch alone.

While the CR-V wasn't part of the recall, I've found the problem is exactly the same as with the Civic model and the parts kit works just the same. The only difference is that you have to pay for it, instead of having it repaired for free... "

I phoned our local dealership and the kit they keep in stock for $40. Not sure if it will fit the '03 or not, but going to give it a try.
