As far as the horn, check for a blown fuse, if fuse is ok, locate the horn underneath the hood, check for power at the horn while someone else is pushing the horn. If you have battery voltage at the horn while someone else is pushing the horn, chances are you have a bad horn. Airbag light, check front impact sensors for damage or corrosion, unhook negative battery cable before touching the frontal impact sensors, Good luck, Gary

1999 Windstar has the air bag light on the horn is not working and the controls on dash (gas temp etc) just goes wild flopping everywhere.


under your steering wheel, is a part called a clock spring which controls your airbag/horn........removal of steering wheel is necessary
it looks like a round thing with multiple colored wires coming out of it.
the replacement is available at your local Ford dealer

PS: disconnect battery first! you will need a steering wheel puller to do the job.

2000 windstar airbag light is on on dash and horn


Hi Mamaberta7,
The OD light flashing is something you need to have checked using a scanner. Since this trans. was recently rebuilt,you want to get it checked soon. The transmission can default to full line pressure and this can cause damage. Also if the unit isn't locking up, it can cause the transmission to overheat.
The airbag light on and the horn not working are probably tied into the clock-spring. This is the most common concern with the symptom you have. Again,you can have the code pulled to confirm the problem or you can use a DVOM (Digital volt/ohm meter) and check for continuity through the clock-spring. If you want to check it yourself,let me know and I will get you the steps to down the system and the wiring diagram.
If you have any other questions,drop me a line. Thanks,Chuck

How do you remove the steering wheel to a 1996 ford windstar minivan?? I bought my van which is a old postal vehicle. After owning it a couple of weeks the horn stopped working. I replaced the fuses and...


horn is only to be used to attrack attention of nice looking woman ,if the driver in front is asleep at the traffic lights or on the mobile and doesnt move off ten seconds before they change ,or attracting the attention of someone on the top floor of apartment building so you do not have to get out of vehicle and ring bell.-----right airbag removal ,disconnect battery then look under the steering wheel for air bag fitting retainer ,two types one is a sprung lever that has to be moved to one side and the other is a small bolt head with either a 8mm headaed bolt or a star drive .

Horn stopped working and now get airbag light...


I had the same problem in my 98 Dodge Grand Caravan. The problem was the "clock spring" cable in the steering column. A flexible cable connects the horn, air bag, and in my case the cruise control to the rest of the car. Chrysler fixed the problem at no charge. It is a recall item that they will fix if it fails. Ford may possibly do the same thing. I had my car fixed last year.

1998 Ford windstar horn wiring


There is something called a clock spring in the column that is used for the airbag, horn and cruise control buttons. This clock spring if messed with will cause a/bag light to come on and possibly cause a/bag failure if there is a collision. DON"T mess with the wiring in the column. Run new wires in to the horn or install an a/market horn.
